Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Inside, the Vito borrows heavily from the Mercedes V-Class passenger car, so it’s very well put together. However, as a working vehicle where the priorities are durability and practicality, it falls short. The toughened versions of traditional Mercedes switches for example, make the already lacklustre interior feel downright dull in comparison with rivals.

There are three open storage areas beneath the windscreen, and two cup holders, while a small tray beneath the gear lever is ideal for phones, keys, papers or notebooks. It’s just a pity the door pockets are narrow and there’s no overhead storage, because this means keeping things out of sight can be an issue.
