Mercedes wants to be sure its customers can reach every mission with the new generation Vito. So it introduces a four-wheel drive system for the utility vehicle.
The drive technology of the Vito 4×4 is based on the Vito with rear-wheel drive, automatic transmission with torque converter and electronically controlled brake force distribution. In terms of technology, it is closely related to the all-wheel drives fitted in Mercedes-Benz passenger cars.

The torque has a ratio of 45:55, while the driving power is distributed by the 4ETS Electronic Traction System combined with the ESP and ASR dynamic handling control systems.
Like the Vito models already introduced, the new Attention Assist and Crosswind Assist safety systems form part of the standard specification on the Vito 4×4.
The new Vito 4×4, in the 119 BlueTEC version, is equipped with the most powerful engine available. The four-cylinder powerplant produces 190 hp from its 2.15-litre displacement while achieving a maximum torque of 440 Nm. In this configuration, the Vito 4×4 complies with the future Euro 6 emissions standard.
The engine power is transferred by the 7G-TRONIC PLUS, linked with an ECO start/stop function. The Vito 119 BlueTEC 4×4 reaches a top speed of 199 km/h (123 mph). Nonetheless, it boasts fuel consumption of just 6.4 l/100 km (36 mpg). This corresponds to 169 g/km CO2.
