Mercedes with a bed: V-Class Marco Polo to be launched at Auto Expo 2020
Mercedes-Benz on Monday announced that it will showcase the lifestyle camper version of its V-Class MPV - called V-Class Marco Polo, at the Auto Expo 2020 which starts from February 7 at Greater Noida.
The V-Class Marco Polo will seek to redefine what luxury is and claims to be an opulent home away from home - complete with a fold-away bed. Mercedes says that the V-Class Marco Polo is a 'luxury camper' made for the ruggedness of the outdoors and that it has been packed with a whole host of living space concepts.

A mobile mini home, the V-Class Marco Polo available in western markets feature swivel seats, fold-away rear seats that can be transformed into a bed, integrated drawers, cabinets and wardrobes. The fit and finish are, quite obviously, of top quality.
Mercedes says that the decision to launch the V-Class Marco Polo stems from the good response to the V-Class Elite that was recently launched in India. The MPV gets a new 2.0-litre diesel engine which is capable of putting out 161bhp of power and has peak torque figures of 380Nm. There are no surprises in the transmission unit with Mercedes opting for the 9G-Tronic 9-speed automatic gearbox. The MPV moves from stationary to 100 kmph in 11 seconds.
In the long-wheelbase 6-seater option, it gets massage seats, climate control, an optional panoramic sunroof, a refrigerated section under the centre console, ambient lighting, electric sliding doors and 640 W Burmester surround sound system with 15 speakers.
While the V-Class Elite is priced at ₹1.10 crore (ex showroom), expect a higher asking price for the V-Class Marco Polo.
Additonally, Mercedes has confirmed the India debut of GT 63 S4MATIC which is a four-door coupe and is the fastest AMG ever, at Auto Expo. Also at the Auto Expo would be the new GLA, specialty car EQC 400 4MATIC Edition 1886 and the A-Class limousine.
