    Under the hood, the Mercedes-Benz V-Class Elite will continue to use the 2.2-litre diesel engine tuned to develop 160 bhp and 380 Nm of peak torque. The oil burner is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Internationally though, the V-Class facelift gets a new four-cylinder OM 654 engine with the V250 d and V300 d getting a 2.0-litre diesel engine. The newly developed powertrain is available two states of tune - 190 bhp and 239 bhp. The transmission is also the modern 9G-TRONIC unit.

    Expect prices for the Mercedes-Benz V-Class Elite to around the Rs. 90 lakh (ex-showroom) mark. The model does not have a direct rival in the country, at present, but could soon face heat from the Toyota Vellfire MPV that is expected to go on sale soon.
