Now, don’t be surprised with what the three-pointed German has to offer us because the Mercedes-Benz Viano Pearl is not the new van which we spotted did some test drive. The brand new Viano may takes awhile to show up as production form and in the mean time, to fill the empty gap and the 2012 sales report, the German automaker decided to offer the current generation a limited edition in the form of Viano Pearl luxury van. So, can this limited edition van impress the European customers?
According to autoevolution.com, the Mercedes-Benz Viano Pearl dresses in Magno Allanite Grey paintjob. The three-pointed German automaker granted the van with features such as the 19-inch lightweight alloy rims and LED daytime running lights. Okay, judging by the photo, there is not much of new details on the exterior design which means that the special items could be storage inside.
As we step inside, the term luxury van for the Viano Pearl limited edition doesn’t too much because you will get the Bang & Olufsen BeoSound audio system with 18 speakers that guarantee will make you arrested by police if the sound disturbs the neighborhood, wireless LAN device, aluminum trimming, two-tone Nappa leather, and walnut rear floor. Phew… this is why you should not judge vehicle from its exterior look, eh?
Moving on folks as Mercedes-Benz assigns the 3.5L V6 petro0l engine – where else you can found van with V6 engine? – where this particular engine is able to deliver 258 horsepower. Another engine choice is the 3.0L V6 diesel engine which provides 224 horsepower. The Mercedes-Benz Viano Pearl will be ready for sale this summer with basic price tag at €99,000 or equals to $130,000 although no official info if Mercedes offers this model to US market or not.
