This is a well-presented two-bedroom detached house with a newly fitted kitchen and dining area, with yacht wood flooring, situated in the heart of anywhere you care to park it. You get the idea.
The Mercedes V-Class Marco Polo is a bite-size luxury property on wheels, and it’s just had a few updates as part of a facelift for the entire V-Class MPV range.
Chief among them – a very welcome refresh in the engine and gearbox department. The OM654 four-cylinder diesel engine from the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Mercedes-Benz GLE and Mercedes-Benz CLS, with two power outputs (220d and 300d), is now available, along with Mercedes’ nine-speed automatic gearbox.
Elsewhere in the V-Class lineup, automatic emergency braking is now standard and the styling has been tweaked inside and out. So, have those changes turned the Marco Polo into a must-have holiday adventure vehicle?
Well, it’s not short on passenger space, that’s for sure. It’s more than five metres long and has a three-metre wheelbase, but, when you clamber into the back, you will still be amazed at the amount of stuff they’ve been able to cram in. There’s seating for four, with rear seats that fold down into a double bed, and a pop up roof that allows space for another double bed on the makeshift ‘second-floor’. There's also a full-on kitchen installation with a sink, gas hob, fridge and plenty of cupboards and storage compartments.
