Due to its high floor, driving a Vaneo can be off-putting until you get used to it; you sit in an almost straight-legged coupe-like position. Visibility is good but the nose is invisible and the rear is hard to judge for parking. The cabin is well laid out but not particularly impressive in terms of stowage cubbies.
Mercedes-Benz Vaneo MPV space & practicality
Masses of headroom and a huge boot are the Vaneo’s selling points. Stripping out all but the driver’s seat can increase the load bay and there’s plenty of variation possible in-between. The Vaneo can also be modified to carry extra people with a seven-seat option. An optional sliding load tray helps getting heavy objects in and out.
