► New 2015 Mercedes Marco Polo Activity

By YouCar

Mercedes- Benz today presented two new stars that stand for freedom and independence: the all-new Marco Polo and Marco Polo ACTIVITY camper vans and recreational vehicles. The compact exterior dimensions, with a length of 5.14 metres and a width of 1.93 metres (excluding mirrors), combine with the electromechanical power steering to ensure great manoeuvrability and impressive agility. With a height of 1.98 metres they are able to enter all standard garages, multi-storey car parks, underground garages and car washes. At the same time, the Marco Polo and the Marco Polo ACTIVITY offer a standard of dynamic performance, comfort and economy on a par with a Mercedes-Benz passenger car. In this way, they allow the utmost flexibility and spontaneity in daily and leisure use. Numerous driver assistance systems ensure exemplary safety. Crosswind Assist and ATTENTION ASSIST are on board as standard. The compact Marco Polo ACTIVITY recreational vehicle boasts exceptional versatility. With a highly variable interior, comfortable berths for up to five people, five engine variants from 65 kW to 140 kW (88 hp to 190 hp) and three drive types (front, rear and all-wheel drive), it can be customised to individual requirements. This makes it the ideal vehicle for young families as well as those enjoying sports and recreational activities – for 365 days of the year. The Marco Polo ACTIVITY is equipped as standard with a three-seater bench with one-piece backrest and bed extension. The bench can slide forward on rails. In this way, the capacity of the luggage compartment can be more than doubled in an instant to accommodate surfboards, paragliding equipment or even a bicycle inside the vehicle. Anyone who requires even more room, e.g. for carrying newly purchased shelf units, can also use the surface of the bed and the floor underneath the bed as load space. Under the bed are two drawers that can be removed, allowing items to be loaded through the resulting space. In just a few movements, the bench seat can be converted into a comfortable bed for three people. An additional sleeping facility for two people is offered by the roof bed under the pop-up roof on board the new Marco Polo. Featuring a cold foam mattress and spring elements with high point elasticity, this bed offers a standard of lying comfort that is exceptional in the segment. Other standard equipment items are the folding table, multiple bottle holders and cup holders, two electric vent windows, curtains in the rear and pre-installation for a radio. The starting price for adventures with the Marco Polo ACTIVITY is 38,960 euros (price in Germany incl. 19% VAT). ► SUBSCRIBE NOW: ► WEBSITE: ► FACEBOOK: ► TWITTER: ► GOOGLE+:
