Agile performance and high efficiency – the 3 torquey 4‑cylinder diesel engine variants boast superior handling and low fuel consumption. The top‑of‑the range V 250 d variant with an output of 140 kW (190 hp) and peak torque of 440 Nm is particularly high on driving enjoyment and low on fuel consumption. The V 250 d features the overtorque technology, which briefly boosts the output by 10 kW (14 hp) and adds 40 Nm of torque. This provides it with impressive acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.1 s. It requires surprisingly little fuel for this top performance, and the innovative BlueTEC catalytic converter technology is kind on the environment.
Whether comfort‑oriented or sporty, both the 6‑speed manual transmission and the 7G‑TRONIC PLUS 7‑speed automatic transmission manage the two modes master ‑fully. The 7 finely stepped gears of the 7G‑TRONIC PLUS keep engine speeds, noise and consumption at a low level. The driver can use the DYNAMIC SELECT switch to influence the shifting characteristics with the aid of the 4 transmission modes “C”, “E”, “S” and “M”. A boon when overtaking: the overtorque technology supplies brief bursts of 10 kW (14 hp) more output and an additional 40 Nm of torque, while in mode “S” the transmission delays upshifts until a higher engine speed is attained. Alternatively, the driver can shift gear manually with the DIRECT SELECT steering wheel shift paddles in “M” mode.
Mercedes‑Benz Intelligent Drive stands for innovative driving assistance and safety systems. It provides for unique driving comfort and an exemplary standard of safety on board the V‑Class. The highlight is the optional Driving Assistance Package, which combines 4 assistance and safety systems. These systems help the driver to maintain a minimum distance from the vehicle in front, to detect vehicles in the driver’s blind spot and to avoid inadvertently straying out of lane. In difficult situations they can help to avoid accidents and/or reduce their severity. The Lane Tracking Package is additionally available, comprising Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist.
The exemplary standard of safety offered by the V‑Class has been confirmed by an independent body: in the Euro NCAP Test conducted in 2014 it put in an excellent showing, securing the top 5‑star rating. The extensive safety equipment in the V‑Class is based on the integral safety concept from Mercedes‑Benz, which comprises 4 phases: from safe driving through preventive protection in the event of danger and on‑demand protection in an accident to damage limitation after an accident.
