Mercedes-Benz has officially whipped the wraps off the T-Class. The German marque says the small van is truly premium and combines roominess and functionality with style and comfort like no other vehicle in its segment. 


According to the automaker, the T-Class is instantly recognisable as a member of the Mercedes-Benz family, with its design distinguished by balanced proportions and a “sensual” surface design with reduced lines. The T-Class measures 4 498 mm nose to tail, 1 859 mm wide and 1 811 mm in height.

The sliding doors provide an opening measuring 614 mm wide and 1 059 mm high. The firm says a long-wheelbase variant with “up to” seven seats will follow at a later stage. 


As standard, the T-Class is equipped with a 7.0-inch infotainment system, replete with smartphone integration, a multifunction steering wheel, air conditioning and keyless start. Ambient lighting with “up to” eight hues is included in Style and Progressive trim lines. 

A quartet of models is on offer. The diesel derivatives include the T160d and T180d. The former’s 1.5-litre, four-cylinder oil-burner produces 70 kW and 260 Nm. The 1.5-litre unit powering the T180d is endowed with 85 kW and 270 Nm. Claimed fuel consumption for the T160d and T180d is 5.3 and 5.5 L/100 km, respectively. 

The petrol models are powered by a 1.4-litre turbo-four, producing 75 kW/200 Nm in the T160 and 96 kW/240 Nm in the T180. The former has a claimed fuel consumption figure of 6.7 L/100 km, while the latter model’s claimed consumption is rated at 6.6 L/100 km. 

“The T-Class is perfect for everyone who needs plenty of space – from active families to sports enthusiasts. With it, we are steadily pursuing our strategic course of growth in the premium segments,” said Mathias Geisen, head of Mercedes‑Benz Vans.
