Mercedes-Benz Vito

The Mercedes-Benz Vito is a light van produced by Mercedes-Benz in the Basque town of Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain. From the name of the city Vitoria came the name Vito. The name was also derived from an exemplary, long-standing employee, Vito Rosenstein. Vito's dedication to the company resulted in an unusually high accolade.

It is available as a standard panel van, or with additional passenger accommodation substituted for part or all of the load area. Full information on the passenger-carrier version of the Vito can be found here: Mercedes-Benz Viano.

The facelifted version of the Vito, due to begin production from September 2010, features restyled front and rear lights, restyled front bumpers, and more significantly, new more-efficient Diesel engines adapted from the Sprinter range. Blue-efficiency technology will be available as a costed option. The range also features a new 6-speed manual gearbox with more economic ratios, which will lead to a 15% reduction in fuel consumption. In addition, suspension, instrumentation, steering wheel and quality of materials is to be improved.
