Why buy a used Mercedes-Benz Vito with Exchange and Mart?
One of the things you learn early on in business is that the cheapest options aren't always the best ones. And that the way you deliver your goods says plenty about them. Both things explain the appeal of the Mercedes-Benz of medium range vans, this model, the Vito, which slots in just below the larger Sprinter model in the German brand's LCV range. Well over a million examples have been sold since its original launch in 1996 but in a tougher, more eco-conscious commercial market, this design now needs more than just badge and build quality to stave off competition from less prestigiously badged but arguably more complete rivals. Hence the improved Vito model we're looking at here, smarter, better to drive and crucially, less costly to run.
All of which it will need to deliver if it is to be a credible alternative to tough rivals as diverse as the Renault Trafic / Nissan NV 300 / Fiat Talento design, the Peugeot Expert / Vauxhall Vivaro / Toyota Proace / Citroen Dispatch collaboration, the Volkswagen Transporter and of course the ubiquitous Ford Transit Custom. All these alternatives claim to match this Vito's all-round excellence for less money, but Mercedes reckons that it won't take operators very long behind the wheel to appreciate the difference that the Three-Pointed Star can make.
