Mercedes-Benz Vans. Born to run.


  • Ready when you are. If only all partners were this reliable.

    We want you to quickly appreciate your Vito as a partner. That's why we do all we can to ensure you have a long and reliable relationship. On delivery you will receive a well-proven vehicle featuring Mercedes-Benz quality, that has successfully completed 5.5 million test kilometres as well as comprehensive trials. The Vito is designed to cope with the tough demands placed on a commercially used vehicle. And its comprehensive corrosion protection with fully galvanised body ensures that, even after many years, it still cuts a great figure as a calling card for your company.

    This much is certain: with the Vito, you are opting for a vehicle you can count on. Thanks to its outstanding reliability, it will assist you wherever your work takes you. Because for us "Mercedes-Benz Vans. Born to run." is not just a motto; it is a promise..

  • Experience your own economic miracle. Go further thanks to economical fuel consumption.

    Eagerly awaiting Vito

    A value that can serve as an example. Just like the hallmark Mercedes-Benz reliability and longevity. It ensures that your Vito is there for you when you need it. Another factor behind this is the long service interval of up to 40,000 km. Outstanding product quality is generally the best way to minimise maintenance and repair costs. To ensure that the Vito still looks as fit as it is on the outside as it is on the inside, we have also given it outstanding corrosion protection, including a fully galvanised body.

  • Reach your destination. With exemplary safety. Safe on all trips.

    Everyone benefits from the exemplary safety and assistance systems in the Vito: you, your passengers and even other road users. Your cargo is also ideally secured in the Vito. Standard equipment on board includes Crosswind Assist, ATTENTION ASSIST, driver's airbag, co-driver's airbag as well as the latest generation of the ADAPTIVE ESP® Electronic Stability Program. The latter also takes into account the vehicle load as part of driving dynamics control. And the QR-code rescue sticker on the B-pillar enables rescue services to scan the vehicle-specific rescue card directly.

    The optional COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST, which continually monitors the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front even outside of cities, and can warn you visually and audibly of a potential collision is a highlight. Windowbags and thorax/pelvis sidebags are optionally available for the driver and front passenger, as is the PRE-SAFE® preventive occupant protection system. And we are sure you will find what you are looking for in the additional safety equipment1 if you are seeking to further enhance the safety equipment of your Vito. They all have one thing in common: they support you in reaching your destinations more safely.

  • Taking your large loads off you. A load compartment as multifaceted as the job itself.

    Difficult jobs Vito

    In the Vito there's space for everything you need to bring with you. With a maximum payload of up to 1374 kg (panel van) and load compartment length of up to 3 m, as a 3200 kg vehicle it is able to handle a variety of loads. Yet that is not all: with 3 body lengths, 2 wheelbase lengths, a flexible load-securing system and practical partitions, it offers you a wealth of individualisation and specialisation options for creating your own professional transport solution.

    No two jobs are alike, after all. Especially if you have to transport people as well as cargo. In which case the Vito Mixto is the perfect choice. It combines functionality and comfort thanks to partial glazing, easy entry and flexible seating for up to six people. If needed, the optional rear bench seat can be removed in just a few simple steps.

    Incidentally: with its large door apertures and a low load compartment sill, the Vito makes even the most difficult jobs child's play – for even more convenient, efficient and safe loading and unloading.

    180° rear doors are also optionally available.

  • Enjoy working here. It's fascinating how comfortable a place of work can be.

    Lets talk about the pleasant aspects of your job: the Vito will send you to work in high spirits thanks to its spacious interior. The seats make a good impression with their durable fabric covering, and you'll be seated comfortably on their ergonomic upholstery during long journeys. In colder times of year the option heated seats for the driver and co-driver are a valuable bonus. Should you need space for 2 passengers up front, you can order the optional co-driver's bench seat.

    Drive to your jobs with ease thanks to electromechanical power steering and the cruise control, multifunction steering wheel with adjustable steering column and trip computer options. The optional air conditioning or automatic climate control helps you stay cool.

    The optionally available audio systems keep you well connected and entertained on the road. Order the optional interior Chrome package to further boost the value of your Vito. And because every successful project starts with good storage facilities, we have equipped the Vito with practical storage compartments.
