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

How much cargo can handle this ?

The Mercedes-Benz Vito isn't just another van; it's practically a chariot for those who have to lug around a lot of stuff day in and day out. The current model comes in a variety of configurations that make it as adaptable as a Swiss army knife, including its boot space, which is crucial for small business owners, delivery drivers, and anyone who understands that cargo capabilities can make or break a workday. The Vito stands as a formidable player in the Mercedes-Benz lineup, slotting between the nimble Citan and the gargantuan Sprinter, ensuring that it's a go-to option for anyone looking for a mid-sized van with impressive storage capabilities.

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

The evolution of the Vito's boot space over the years reads like a history lesson in automotive adaptability. The first Vito 638 (1996-2003) had a cavernous trunk with rear seats folded, packing a mighty 4900 litres of storage. Fast forward to the 639 (2003-2010) and the boot space saw marginal improvement, hitting a respectable 4650 litres. Then came the 639 facelift (2010-2014), which left many puzzled with a paltry 430 litres. The 447 model (2014-2019) rectified things with a more practical 720 litres. The latest iterations, the 447 facelift (2019-2024) and the 447 second facelift (2024-now), have pushed the rear seat folded capacity up to a staggering 6000 litres, solidifying the Vito's reputation as a reliable workhorse.

The boot space compared to other Mercedes-Benz models

Compared to its Mercedes siblings, the Vito's boot space stands out as a substantial offering. Yes, you could point to the likes of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Tourer, which swallows a monstrous 9000 litres with seats out of the way, but the Vito trumps most within the brand. Taking on models like the EQA and A-Class, both touching around 340-350 litres, the Vito makes them look like they're carrying lunchboxes. Even the larger B-Class struggles to compete with its 498 litres. For those needing serious haulage without stepping up to a full-blown van like the Sprinter, the Vito's expansive trunk space hits an excellent balance, especially more so than something like the eVito Tourer, which manages only a slightly more generous 990 litres.

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

When pitted against its rivals, the Vito's boot space offers a compelling argument. Take the Renault Trafic for example, it’s a worthy adversary at 1200 litres when seats are up and extends to an impressive 3100 litres when flattened. But the current Vito models blow these figures out of the water. The SsangYong Korando, with 486 litres and up to 1312 litres with seats folded, barely scratches the Vito’s paintwork in comparison. Then there's the Ford Transit—a giant in the industry—boasting about 6300 litres, which is more than decent until you realise the Vito can go head to head with its 6000 litres. Even the Nissan Interstar behemoth, fit for a cargo colossus, when compared to the Vito, the numbers speak for themselves. The Vito might not always pack the largest raw numbers, but it strikes a brilliant balance of practicality, size, and versatility, besting many of its competitors in the mid-sized category.
