- Mercedes-Benz Vito, V-Class and the Sprinter 4x4 poised to exceed expectations
- Manufacturer has all sectors of the van market covered
Kyalami, Johannesburg - Following one of the most successful first halves of any year in terms of sales, where more than 190 000 vehicles were delivered to customers worldwide from January to June this year, as well as the unprecedented World Premiere of the Mercedes-Benz X-Class in Cape Town, Mercedes-Benz Vans is now poised to dominate at this year's Festival of Motoring, taking place from 1-3 September, at the Kyalami Circuit.
The Mercedes-Benz Vans family, comprising the Mercedes-Benz Vito, V-Class and the all-conquering Sprinter 4x4 will be the stars of the show as they demonstrate how the range has the lifestyle and functional aspects covered from all angles.
"We are using the Festival of Motoring as an opportunity to demonstrate that Mercedes-Benz Vans offers comprehensive solutions for all conceivable needs. For those who lead active lifestyles, the Vito range of the Tourer and Mixto are the perfect vehicles for loading sporting equipment and leisure accessories, all without compromising the passengers' comfort," said Nadia Trimmel, Head of Mercedes-Benz Vans Southern Africa.
"It is also no secret that the V-Class is the most luxurious people mover available on the market. For those who attach importance to ample space, the highest safety standards and stylish design, the V-Class is the perfect family car," she adds.
Since its local launch in 2014, the Sprinter 4x4 has continued to prove that it makes light work of extreme tasks in the harshest of conditions. With all-wheel drive, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4x4 will thrill attendees of the Festival of Motoring as it demonstrates its ability to cover an equally wide range of industries such as construction, energy supply, forestry and even extreme adventure activities. This is why it is the undisputed number one off-road van in the market.
As part of Mercedes-Benz Vans offering at the Festival of Motoring, there will be an interactive stand showcasing information on the world's first true premium bakkie, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class! This will whet the appetite of those who cannot wait for the local launch of the vehicle, in the first half of 2018.
