The new Mercedes-Benz Vito 4x4: a decisive traction boost for business professionals – not just in winter!
•Compact, lightweight and efficient: the new Mercedes-Benz Vito is now also available as the Vito 4x4
•Excellent traction, driving stability and braking performance thanks to ADAPTIVE ESP® and 4ETS
•Powerful engine, low fuel consumption and low emissions
•Low vehicle height of the Vito 4x4 enables it to enter most car parks and underground garages
Coinciding wîth the cold snap in Europe, Mercedes-Benz Vans is now also presenting the new Vito as the Mercedes-Benz Vito 4x4. It is available to order wîth immediate effect. The all-wheel drive van offers business professionals decisive extra traction in icy and snowy conditions and on building sites and unpaved roads. Further important advantages include its compact dimensions, good driving dynamics and manoeuvrability. The new Vito 4x4 from Mercedes-Benz Vans concludes the introduction of the new Vito. It is the only mid-size van offering front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive and now also permanent all-wheel drive.Superior all-wheel drive technology wîth greatly improved efficiency
The drive technology of the Vito 4x4 is based on the Vito wîth rear-wheel drive, automatic transmission wîth torque converter and electronically controlled brake force distribution. In terms of technology, it is closely related to the all-wheel drives fitted in Mercedes-Benz passenger cars. In the transfer case the drive torque is directed to the axles by a central differential in a ratio of 45:55. The driving power is distributed by the well-proven 4ETS Electronic Traction System combined wîth the ESP and ASR dynamic handling control systems. If one or more wheels lose grip, 4ETS brakes them individually and directs the driving power to the wheels wîth good traction in a matter of milliseconds. In this way, 4ETS achieves the effect of three differential locks.
Like the Vito models already introduced, the new ATTENTION ASSIST and Crosswind Assist safety systems form part of the standard specification on the Vito 4x4.
The new Vito 4x4 is both powerful and economical
The new all-wheel drive van not only boasts superior performance on slippery surfaces or when towing a trailer, its engine performance is also impressive: as the 119 BlueTEC, the new Vito 4x4 is equipped wîth the most powerful engine available. The four-cylinder powerplant produces 140 kW (190 hp) from its 2.15-litre displacement while achieving a maximum torque of 440 Nm.
Thanks to SCR technology wîth AdBlue injection into the exhaust gas, the BlueTEC engine technology of the Vito 4x4 already complies wîth the future Euro 6 emissions standard. The engine power is transferred by the 7G-TRONIC PLÚS automatic transmission wîth torque converter, which is linked wîth an ECO start/stop function. The Vito 119 BlueTEC 4x4 reaches a top speed of 199 km/h. Nonetheless it boasts fuel consumption (NEDC combined) of just 6.4 l/100 km. This corresponds to 169 g/km CO2.
The compact and comparatively lightweight construction of the all-wheel drive and the omission of a conventional differential lock contribute to the low fuel consumption of the Vito 4x4. As a result, the Vito 4x4 only weighs around 50 kg more than the Vito wîth rear-wheel drive.Fits in most garages thanks to the low vehicle height
The powertrain of the new Vito 4x4 has been designed to result in a height of just 1.91 m for the all-wheel drive van – i.e. no higher than the Vito wîth front or rear-wheel drive. This means that the Vito 4x4 can use most car parks and underground garages and therefore easily perform transport tasks in inner cities as well.
The new Vito 4x4 is available in Germany as a panel van, Mixto and Tourer in the body variants compact, long and extra long and wîth gross vehicle weights from 2.8 to 3.05 t. At the time of the start of sales, the 140 kW variant can be ordered as a Vito 119 BlueTEC 4x4 at a net price of €36,120. The other 100 kW and 120 kW engine variants will follow in the coming months.Source - Mercedes-Benz
