Mercedes Vito History
The first generation (1996-2003) was based on the Volkswagen Transporter design platform. The more luxurious version of the Vito was marketed as the V-Klasse and was later to be marketed in the second generation version as the Mercedes Viano.
The second generation (2003 - ) version changed the design; making it more aero-dynamic and more slanted looking front-end. This version is a rear wheel drive version and has more engine choices than its predecessor. These engines are a lot more economical than the first versions.
Vito Panel Van
The Mercedes Vito has two diesel engines available: 2.1 CDI and the 3.0 V6 CDI. They are both really good economically, but the 2.1 version is better on fuel and more economical. The petrol engine available is the 2.8 VR6. When thinking about fuel economy always consider the age, fuel type and engine size.
