2026 Mercedes-Benz V-Class

Mercedes-Benz is currently developing the next-generation V-Class/Vito van. The recently revealed spy photos show a test vehicle in the mule stage, retaining most of the existing body while incorporating a few changes.

Key changes:

  1. Completely new front-end design - flatter nose
  2. Changed taillight design
  3. Relocated license plate - moved to the upper part of the tailgate
  4. Widened wheel arches, suggesting a new platform
  5. Closed-off grille and lack of exhaust pipes - possibility of an electric powertrain

The interior will feature a new dashboard, center console, gear shifter, steering wheel, door trims, etc., along with the latest technology and semi-autonomous driving systems. The German automaker will likely equip it with leather upholstery in higher specifications.

The next-generation V-Class/Vito is not expected to launch before the second half of 2025, and it will likely be available in the United States for the 2026 model year.
