Auto Expo 2020: Mercedes-Benz V-Class Marco Polo launched in India, prices starting at Rs 1.38 crore
Mercedes Benz India has launched the Mercedes-Benz V-Class Marco Polo at the Auto Expo today at Rs 1.38 crore, ex showroom, for the Horizon version while the camper comes in at Rs 1.46 crore.
The Mercedes-Benz V-Class Marco Polo (we just love this name!) is the flagship of the V-Class line-up, sitting above the V- Class Elite.
The Marco Polo has a yacht-themed interior wood panelling and finish, a collapsible table and seating for four. The rear seats fold flat into a double bed, and can be completely isolated with blinds. The electric roof extension with a built-in foldable tent also provides a sleeping compartment for two more. The top-spec version even has a mini kitchenette with an LPG gas cylinder and a proper washbasin and sink. There is also an exterior awning and a foldable table and chairs for outdoor seating. To further enforce itself as a long-distance travel solution, the MarcoPolo has a 38-litre water tank and a 40-litre one for waste water.
As you can see, the Marco Polo camper van is loaded to the brim with equipment to make long-distance travel a luxury affair. And of course one could always go glamping in it. The Marco Polo is aimed at high net worth individuals like industrialists who might want to go on field trips or on pilgrimages with the family. Celebrities can also use it as a vanity van. And outdoor enthusiasts can use it to explore the wilderness.
The V-Class Marco Polo carries the same mechanical package as the V-Class Elite and comes with the BSVI compliant 2.0-litre 4-cylinder OM 654 diesel engine in its 165PS and 380Nm iteration. This, as in the latest C and E-Class, is now paired with the brand's 9G-Tronic 9-speed torque converter automatic.
Bookings have begun for both versions of the V-Class Marco Polo and this comes after the German luxury carmaker launched the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door and also unveiled the new A 35 and GLA for India at the Auto Expo yesterday.
