What you Need to know about The Mercedes-Benz T-Class

Despite its resemblance to the Renault Kangoo’s silhouette, the T-Class is a Mercedes through and through. The MPV has a large three-pointed star and a traditional Mercedes grille with chrome highlights. It has its own headlights, bonnet, and front wings, as well.

The T-Class has sliding rear doors with fixed windows that provide easy access to the cabin. Buyers can choose between a near-vertical tailgate that opens at bumper level or a twin ‘barn-door’ arrangement.

The T-Class has a multi-function steering wheel, instrument graphics, and round air vents on the inside, among other changes designed to give it a Mercedes-like appearance.

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 practicality, with large door bins and plenty of storage space, as befits a car in this class. Foldable plastic tables are also integrated into the back of the front seats.

The T-Class is a standard-wheelbase 5-seat model that measures 4,498mm long, 1,859mm wide, and 1,811mm tall. The carmaker plans to release a long-wheelbase version with up to seven seats in 2023.

A Renault-sourced 1.3-litre turbo-petrol engine with two power outputs – 102hp and 130hp – and a 1.5-litre diesel engine with two power outputs – 95hp and 115hp – power the T-Class. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission available on the more powerful petrol and diesel models.
