The Marco Polo is based on the V-Class and offers space for four people. It is equipped with a kitchenette, wardrobe, swivelling front seats, a bench/berth and roof bed. The compact camper van is the ideal companion for individualists and savourers who like to use their vehicle for longer trips whilst looking to retain as much independence as possible and enjoy familiar living comfort. They also attach importance to style and appreciate everyday practicality.
The Marco Polo Horizon, based on the V-Class, combines the high-quality design of the Marco Polo with the maximum functionality of the Marco Polo ACTIVITY, thanks to its flexible seating configurations with up to seven seats and sleeping options for up to five people. As such it is the ideal supplement to the portfolio with appeal to additional target groups. From September 2017, a series of new optional equipment features for the Marco Polo Horizon and Marco Polo will offer customers even more opportunity to individualise their vehicles with regard to both style and functionality.
In an accident scenario defined by TÜV Rhineland in 2015, the Marco Polo was the first camper van to have proven in a crash test, over and beyond the conventional testing regime, how well the occupants are protected from the vehicle's load as well as the stability of the vehicle's fitted furniture. With the Marco Polo Horizon Edition, Mercedes-Benz Vans is launching another edition model at an attractive price of 55,750 Euro (including 19 percent VAT). The Marco Polo Horizon Edition will be available from September 2017. ■
