Actually Vaneo is the anticipated ‘minivan’ development of the and its design had been finalised on time. If Mercedes-Benz is launching on the international market (early year), four years the plan was approved, it is because it time to completely refurbish the plant the company used to own WW II, and that was repossessed when the wall came down.

a selection of alternative versions on display at the recent press but the range is so diversified and comprehensive showing all possibilities would been quite confusing.

presented were enough to a very good idea of the offered by the Vaneo to all sorts of and situations. Overall we have what we have seen and are sales will be very if the prices announced #147;to under or at Euro 20,000#148; reasonable. Mercedes-Benz want the to be the first Mercedes-Benz in many in contrast to the A-Class mission, as the or third car in families who already a Mercedes.

A special project.

Although is a technical development of the A-Class, you simply call it a derivative. It is the engineers have used a of components from the A-Class 40% of Vaneo) such as the engines, and suspension as well as the sandwich construction.

The overall dimensions and the architecture fully witness the of these two new factors. The size of the new has been established after to the potential buyers. The 4,192 mm Vaneo sits on a very wheelbase of 2.9 meters and on rather tracks (1,524 mm front and mm rear) making for a completely package than the A-Class. is as much as 1830 mm high and mm wide.

In words a box treated for a night

That there was not much the designers could do that good care of its pretty the sporty wheel arches and detailing to make the Vaneo is suggested by the fact that have been allowed to the money required for the huge, 925 mm tail lights. Trouble is the designers also had to look carefully than usual to efficiency because Vaneo was to be a new, very difficult, in the booming MPV market where price is critical. This in a number of details, such as the door handles, particularly

Roomy interior, ready for equipment.

There is no doubt there is plenty of room this Compact MPV by Mercedes-Benz and one may discover than by spending a amount of money it can be very furbished and equipped. Yet, the models show a degree of and finish that is more in with the standards of a #147;large manufacturer such as Renault those of the Mercedes-Benz fame.

the Vaneo is easy and convenient, in all directions is excellent and the high position should make the Vaneo a relaxed exercise. The design is typically Mercedes a development of the A-Class, with the instrument cluster, air vents and being just fine but more.

With so much to be ‘furnished’ I would have a number of bins, box, and more ‘small conveniences’ but did not them. Apparently, all attention has to the very comfortable seats, to fold and remove to create space as required by circumstances. the Vaneo can be fitted with the Parktronic parking assistant, control and a comprehensive selection of systems, ranging from an hi-fi with CD player to a phone complete with system and even a navigation featuring the intuitive operating COMAND.
