Comparison: Boot space Mercedes-Benz Vito vs. competitors 2024

How much cargo can handle this ?

When it comes to the Mercedes-Benz Vito, the boot space isn't just about fitting your groceries. It's about accommodating everything from your kids' football kits to a house move. The latest generation Vito promises the versatility and capacity needed for any task, whether you're running a business or planning a family road trip. Known for its practicality and reliability, the Vito has consistently delivered a spacious boot, but how does the current model stack up against its predecessors and competitors? Let's take a deeper dive into the evolution of its boot space, its standing in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, and how it fares against other similar vehicles.

Mercedes-Benz Vito - How has the boot space changed over the generations?

The Mercedes-Benz Vito has undergone significant transformations over its various generations. The earliest model, the Vito 638 (1996-2003), offered a generous 4,900 litres of space with the rear seats folded. However, things took a strange turn with the Vito 639 (2003-2010), which, though still roomy with 4,650 litres with the seats up, offered no data on its maximum boot space. A noticeable nosedive happened with the 2010-2014 Vito 639 facelift, plummeting to a meagre 430 litres. Thankfully, the tides turned with the arrival of the Vito 447 (2014-2019), which delivered a more respectable 720 litres. The current model, the Vito 447 (2019-2024), sees the boot space soar to a staggering 6,000 litres with the seats folded. It seems Mercedes-Benz decided to go back to the drawing board and emerged victorious.

The boot space compared to other Mercedes-Benz models

Within the Mercedes-Benz stable, the Vito stands tall and proud. Its boot space utterly dwarfs models like the Mercedes-Benz AMG SL with just 213 litres and the AMG GT Coupé with 321 litres. Even the luxury-packed S-Class Limousine stumbles at 550 litres. Larger models like the GLE Coupé and G-Class AMG Station-Wagen {long} still falter with capacities of 655 and 667 litres respectively. Remarkably, only the Vito Tourer with 720 litres and the mammoth eVito Tourer with 990 litres come close. And then there's the EQV, boasting an impressive 1,030 litres. Yet, none can really rival the Vito's sheer load-lugging prowess, especially with its tailgate-stretching 6,000 litres when the seats are down.

How does the boot space of the Mercedes-Benz Vito compare to it's nearest competitors?

Against its nearest competitors, the Vito is undeniably the king of the hill. Take, for instance, the Ford Mondeo with its commendable but pales-in-comparison 500 litres. The SsangYong Korando might hold its head high with 486 litres, but again, nowhere near Vito's domain. Even heavyweights in the commercial vehicle sector like the Renault Trafic, offering up to 1,200 litres, still don't come close to Vito's cavernous interior. And sure, the Nissan Interstar and Renault Master boast 3,000 litres each, yet it's the Vito's ability to morph size and practically that truly shines. In length and wheelbase, the competitors also stumble; with the Renault Trafic at 4,782mm length and 3,098mm wheelbase, compared to the majestic stance and far superior utility of the Vito. In the battle of the boots, the Vito clearly stands on a pedestal of its own, offering unmatched versatility and flexibility.
