On its 125th anniversary, Mercedes-Benz introduced the Avantgarde Edition 125 van based on the Viano. The Avantgarde Edition 125 van comes with a variety of new features inside and outside.
In the exterior, the Avantgarde Editioin 125 gets a new set of bespoke 19-inch wheels and a bunch of chrome trims on the mirror housings, front bumper, side skirts, and on the tailgate. And Mercedes-Benz only offers obsidian black or brilliant silver for the exterior.
The Avantgarde Edition 125 van has enough room for six adults, with two in front and four in the back. Customers will have a choice of leather or microfiber for the seats. Mercedes-Benz also throws in a pair of stainless-steel sport pedals and white illuminated instrument panels up front.
The Avantgarde Edition 125 van will be powered by either a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine or a 3.5-liter gasoline engine. The diesel engine makes about 224 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque, and while the gasoline engine produces 258 horsepower. Both engines are mated to a rear-wheel drive automatic transmission. On the diesel engine, it is equipped with Mercedes-Benz’s BlueEfficiency technology to provide better fuel consumption. Its average fuel consumption is about 8.5 – 8.6 liters/100 km with CO2 emissions in the range of 224 – 226 g/km.
The Mercedes-Benz Avantgarde Edition 125 van will be available in two sizes: compact and long. The long version will be available first in this coming spring.
