The Mercedes-Benz Viano rapidly became a popular choice for anybody needing to regularly carry groups of six or more adults for long distances in considerable comfort. With its origins in the Vito commercial vehicle, very few rivals offered as much space or as much durability.
With three body sizes available, Compact, Long or Extra Long, the Mercedes Viano is able to carry up to eight people, including the driver, though other seating combinations are available, and some vehicles have been internally modified to carry fewer people but in private-jet levels of comfort and luxury.
All models have air-conditioning, electric front windows, second-row vent windows and tinted glass as well as remote-control central-locking. The entry-level Trend is geared far more towards practicality than luxury, the Ambient adds additional luxury features such as a 12-volt refrigerator and full leather trim, while brightening up the exterior with alloy wheels and attractive trim features.
