The Mercedes-Benz T-Class MPV has been unveiled.

2023 Mercedes Benz T Class MPV – Overview

The full-size Mercedes-Benz Sprinter or the mid-size Mercedes-Benz Metris is available to American customers looking for a van with a prominent emblem.

Here are the major highlights:

  • Mercedes-Benz has unveiled its new T-class vehicle for the European market. It’s a passenger variant of the company’s small freight van, the Citan.
  • Interior features include faux leather, LED lighting, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, and smartphone connectivity.
  • A turbocharged gas inline-four with 129 horsepower is the most powerful engine option, and two diesel engines are also available.

In Europe, van buyers have a smaller option in the Citan, which was redesigned in August 2021.

Based on the Renault Kangoo’s bones, the second-generation Citan has evolved into a family-oriented passenger van known as the T-class, which Mercedes claims is “bringing comfort into the private compact van category.”

Exterior Design

Despite its resemblance to the Renault Kangoo’s appearance, the T-Class is a Mercedes through and through.

The MPV has a vast three-pointed star and a typical Mercedes grille with chrome details.

In addition, it has its headlamps, hood, and front wings.

The T-class is 177.1 inches long and 71.3 inches in height, with seating for five people. Mercedes says a long-wheelbase version with seven seats is on the way.

Engine Specifications

A variety of inline-four engines are available, including two 1.5-liter diesel engines and two turbocharged 1.3-liter gas engines.

Unfortunately, the most powerful gas engine produces only 129 horsepower and 177 pound-feet torque.

A six-speed manual transmission is standard, although a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission is available for the two diesel engines and the more powerful gas engine.

Later in the year, an all-electric variant dubbed the EQT will be added to the lineup, using a powertrain borrowed from the Renault Kangoo ZE.

Interior Design

The T-Class has a multi-function steering wheel, instrument graphics, round air vents, and other alterations designed to make it look like a Mercedes.

The same Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) functionality as the A-Class and B-Class is available on a 7.0-inch infotainment display, including the “Hey, Mercedes” conversational speech search prompt.

The T-Class has plenty of utility, with substantial door bins and enough storage space, as it befits a car of this class.

Foldable plastic tables are also placed on the back of the front chairs.

A smartphone connection, keyless entry, a 5.5-inch digital display in the instrument cluster, and LED interior lighting are standard on every T-class.

The dashboard is finished in gloss black trim, and much of the cabin is covered in imitation leather.

Mercedes touts the sizeable sliding door apertures and low rear sill for extra practicality, and the rear bench seat can fold flat to allow for more storage room.

For even more opulent interior and exterior trim, buyers can choose the Style or Progressive Line options.

Price

The T-class will start at just under 30,000 euros ($31,500 at today’s exchange rates), but we don’t expect Mercedes to introduce this vehicle to the United States anytime soon.
