Mercedes-Benz India has launched the new V-Class Marco Polo at the 2020 Auto Expo. The luxury MPV is powered by a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder diesel engine. The V-Class Marco Polo is launched in two variants, the Marco Polo and the Marco Polo HORIZON. Both variants starts at the price of Rs 1.46 cr and Rs 1.38 cr respectively. It comes with Four seats as standard, with the option to extend to up to six seats. 

With the Marco Polo Camper van based on the V-Class, Mercedes-Benz India introduces another BS-VI diesel vehicle. A 1950 cc diesel engine that churns out 163 hp and 380 Nm of torque will power the Marco Polo and Marco Polo Horizon. The luxury carmaker also unveiled the mobility of the future 'Volocopter'. 

Speaking about the launch, Martin Schwenk, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented, “The V-Class and V-Class Elite pioneered the luxury MPV segment in India and has witnessed much success ever since their launch. We are excited to expand the segment and launch the Marco Polo which is based on the V-Class, and create a new benchmark in the luxury MPV segment. Thanks to the compact dimensions of the Marco Polo and vehicle technology inherited from the V-Class, the Marco Polo and Marco Polo HORIZON are suitable for long journeys and at the same time for day-to-day and urban usage. The Marco Polo combines functionality with utmost luxury, unparalleled comfort, convenience, and uncompromised safety, all of which illustrate the true characteristics of a Mercedes-Benz vehicle. We will continue to expand our portfolio with innovative products and sustainable technology in India.” 

The Marco Polo takes its body design from its base vehicle, the V-Class, giving an impression of generous space, and showing compact exterior dimensions. Standard safety features include window bags and thorax-pelvis side bags for the driver and front passenger, Attention Assist, which can warn against inattention and drowsiness.
