The 2024 Mercedes-Benz Vito Facelift has been available since 2014 and the slight facelift that came in 2020 was not enough to alter the appearance of the vehicle. So, Mercedes is preparing a more extensive update for 2023 and hopes to keep its van on the market for the next few years. Our spy photographers spotted the prototype with a lightly camouflaged design of the Vito in Germany just a few days after the first spy reveal of the updated EQV. Similar to the former in that the only components of the Vito’s bodywork that remain secretaries the bumper on its front along with the headlights, taillights, and a few parts that form the rear gate.
2024 Mercedes-Benz Vito Facelift Review
From the camouflage, it appears that the Vito will receive a revised front bumper with a slightly different design for intakes, brand new headlight designs as well, and a new grille, which is more akin to Mercedes’s modern design style. This is because the nearly unchanged front end keeps the same character lines that were seen in Mercedes’s earlier models however, buyers of the LCV aren’t likely to be bothered by the design of the front end. But the Vito will be distinguished visually from the more expensive-looking V-Class.
Moving to the rear to the rear, the revised taillights on the Vito seem to be similar to the coming EQV as well, and all versions may have LED graphics. The model in the photo could be a low-end model as evidenced by the non-painted bumpers and the steelies that look basic, but it does have sliding doors on both sides. The other changes on the rear are expected to be small with a focus on the trim, badge, and lettering of the model.
The interiors of this prototype were covered in a way that we couldn’t get a true design. The changes to Vito’s interior may or might not reflect the new V-Class and EQV models, which are expected to be redesigned with air vents, as well as the new digital cockpit, which will have an increased screen as well as an upgraded electronic instrument cluster. The most notable feature is an updated version of the MBUX infotainment system that is identical to the version utilized in Mercedes the passenger car range.
For engines, it is expected that Mercedes will upgrade the existing 1.7-liter as well as 2.0-liter diesel motors to comply with the more stringent emission standards as the eVito is still available as an electric version equipped with a 90 kWh lithium-ion battery, and a 201 horsepower (150 kW/204 PS) electric motor in the front.
