The Marco Polo family based on the V-Class directly benefits from the first facelift to the Mercedes-Benz MPV. The compact Marco Polo and Marco Polo HORIZON camper and leisure vans also feature the new front-end design, the new paint colours and light-alloy wheels, the new air vents and upholsteries. They are joined by the new diesel engine with a new peak of 176 kW (239 hp) (combined fuel consumption 6.7-6.1 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 177-160 g/km)1, Active Brake Assist and Highbeam Assist Plus. The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission is also available for the first time with the facelift.The particularly comfortable and efficient automatic torque converter transmission replaces the 7G-TRONIC and is standard equipment for the V 300 d (combined fuel consumption 6.1-5.9 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 161-155 g/km)1 and V 250 d (combined fuel consumption 6.1-5.9 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 161-155 g/km)1; it is optional for the V 220 d (combined fuel consumption 6.2-6.0 l/100 km, combined CO2 emissions 162-157 g/km)1 . The driver can use the DYNAMIC SELECT switch to select the drive programs "Comfort" and "Sport" and thus influence the gearshifting characteristics. Alternatively, "Manual" mode allows the driver to shift manually using the DIRECT SELECT steering wheel paddles.
