Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

The availability of front-wheel drive and a smaller engine may make the Mercedes Vito considerably cheaper to buy than it once was, but it’s still at the very top end of the segment for price.

Parts, too, can be expensive, but running costs are some of the most reasonable around. The 116 CDI model is the most economical option, with official fuel consumption of 49.6mpg, while the 111 CDI we recommend returns a still highly commendable 45.6mpg.

Overview

The latest Mercedes Vito is a stylish choice in the medium ban market, but while it's capable enough in some areas, rivals have it well licked in most others. It's an expensive choice, too.

  • Fine engine options
  • Sharp handling
  • Good interior build quality
  • Expensive
  • Firm ride
  • No high-roof option
