The Mercedes-Benz Vito W447, a generation that started in 2014 and continued into the year 2020, is an embodiment of sophistication and functionality in a minivan. As part of the Mixto Minivan 4-Doors series, and running on a Trim 111 CDI Mt L3, this model is designed to offer a sleek, stylish carriage for both individual and family use. The car has a seating capacity of five, ample enough to provide comfort and room for an average-sized family, while still delivering on the expected Mercedes-Benz luxury.
Under the hood, the Vito W447 operates on a diesel engine, supported by a common rail injection type which is renowned for its fuel injection efficiency. The car has an impressive inline cylinder layout, composed of 4 cylinders with each cylinder having 4 valves. Boosted by a turbo, the cylinder bore of the engine stands at 3.12 inches with a stroke cycle of 3.081mm. The engine churns out a commendable 114hp at 3800rpm, providing substantial power for its size. The turnover of maximum torque runs at 2000rpm, testament to its strength and durability.
The Vito W447 operates on a front-wheel drive system, an optimal choice for a minivan that promises stability and good fuel efficiency. The model has a 6-gear manual transmission, giving drivers full control of the vehicle and the driving experience. The fuel tank capacity is 15 gallons, enough for long travels without frequent refueling. As for the suspension, the car features an independent, stabilizer bar back suspension, easing the ride even on uneven terrain. The ride and handling, in essence, are geared towards comfort rather than sportiness – a hallmark of any great minivan.
