Debuted at the annual Caravan Salon exhibition in Dusseldorf this summer, the new Mercedes-Benz Marco Polo brings a whole new level of luxury to the compact camper van.
Competing against the Volkswagen California, Mercedes-Benz has based their Marco Polo camper on the standard V-Class. It is designed to seat or sleep up to four people and comes complete with a mini kitchen, wardrobe and fold away table.
I love the stylish interior, in particular the gorgeous light or dark decking for the floor and the creamy Lugano leather upholstery.
For sleeping, a split backrest allows the back seats to be independently flattened into a double bed, at the touch of a button. A slightly larger foam mattress is also located in the pop-up roof.
Tinted rear glass, and a curtains to the windscreen and side windows keep your privacy intact and a stylish portable chairs and table set is also included.
The engine is made up of three four-cylinder turbo diesel engines, ranging from 134bhp and 188bhp, with the 161bhp 220 CDI capable of 47mpg with comparatively low 158g/km of C02 emissions.
The Camper is already on sale in Germany but Mercedes-Benz has no UK launch date unless interest increases. Sob. With prices from close to £45,000 I am sure i’m not the only Brit who would love a night in this luxury glampervan!
