The Mercedes Vito is a spacious medium-sized van that knows its business, offering quality and distinctive rear wheel drive engineering to LCV buyers looking for a durable long-term solution to their transport needs. Here, we're looking at the second generation version - and specifically at the facelifted model that arrived in 2010, bringing with it a more efficient range of more powerful Euro V-compliant engines, a fresh face, a smarter cabin, revised chassis settings and increased payload capacity. As a result, Stuttgart's medium-sized panel van contender was better equipped than ever to take the fight to an increasingly impressive array of Volkswagen Transporter and Vauxhall Vivaro-sized rivals. How will it fare as a used buy? Let's find out.
With this improved post-2010 second generation Vito van, Mercedes managed to meld the toughness and durability of the old Vito with a bit more polish and liveability in the cabin. Of course, used vans are often only as good as their previous keepers and even Mercedes Vitos can feel tired if they've been abused, so look for a low mileage example that's been obviously cared for and it should serve you for many years to come.
Get yourself something like that and you'll get yourself a benchmark among LCVs and a vehicle you can buy with head as well as heart. Here's a model that can carry heavier loads with more speed, less noise, greater comfort, sharper handling, reduced fuel consumption and cleaner emissions than most rivals. Customers in the medium range segment will always have cheaper options of course - Fiat Scudos, Vauxhall Vivaros, Renault Trafics and so on. Nearly all though, are lacking this van's one most crucial ingredient: Star Quality.
