In the market for the latest medium-sized van and want something desirable as well as practical? The Mercedes Vito has been overhauled and is as upmarket medium vans get when it comes to badges. Mercedes has revealed details on updates to the Vito van range, introducing refreshed trim levels and an upgraded engine line up offering better efficiency.

The German brand’s mid-sized van continues to compete against the Volkswagen Transporter and the Ford Transit, and these updates help to give the Vito a fresh look alongside its popular and strong-selling rivals.

Prices for entry level Progressive trim models start from £22,845 excluding VAT, and all models are available to order now. A broad range of engines and specifications are available, so it's possible to spend more than twice that much if you're feeling flush.

Helping to warrant these prices all models come with plenty of kit, including a digital radio, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, meaning that you shouldn't run out of music or connectivity options, however many miles you rack up.

2020 Mercedes Vito model range

The refreshed Vito is still available as either a three-seater panel van or a six-seater crew van with three length options named L1, L2 and L3.

L1 measures 4,895mm, L2 is 5,140mm and L3 is 5,370mm, with all three models standing 1,910mm tall. Each of these will be offered in three trim levels, dubbed Progressive, Premium and crew-exclusive Sport.

Progressive trim represents the entry-level, with fog lights, heated and electrically adjustable wing mirrors, and a pair of sliding doors for maximum practicality.

Standard interior equipment includes cruise control, a digital radio, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay plus a reversing camera. There’s also an eight-way adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support and an adjustable steering wheel.

There’s also a selection of security tech to put your mind at rest, with a Thatcham category 1 approved anti-theft protection package including cabin and load space monitoring and double locks.

Moving up to Premium trim yields upgrades to styling and interior tech with prices from £29,550 excluding VAT. Premium models feature 17-inch alloy wheels, a chrome radiator grille and metallic paint, while inside you get air-conditioning.

Sport trim is exclusive to six-seater crew models, and is also the most expensive option, with prices starting from £40,745 excluding VAT. You do get a built-in seven-inch touchscreen media system with sat-nav along with leather upholstery and heated front seats.

There’s also sports suspension and AMG side skirts to give the Vito a sportier look on the outside and feel from behind the wheel. LED headlights and heated windscreen washers are also included as standard.

2020 Mercedes Vito engines

In terms of engine choice the Vito is available with a 2.1-litre diesel engine in three different tunes, which powers the rear wheels. First up is the 114CDI, which produces 134hp and 330Nm of torque. Next is the 116CDI, with 160hp and 380Nm. The most powerful option is the 187hp, 440Nm 119CDI.

If you opt for Progressive trim, there’s an additional pair of front-wheel drive options. The 110CDI, which delivers 100hp and 270Nm, and the 114CDI with 134hp and 330Nm.

Progressive models are fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, with the option of a nine-speed automatic for £1,520 excluding VAT. That automatic gearbox is standard on Premium and Sport models.
