Düsseldorf- In the run-up to the Düsseldorf Caravan Salon, 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. Both vehicles introduce new ideas in their segment. Featuring modern design, the ultimate in functionality and excellent sleeping comfort, they are equally ideal for long trips or daily and urban use.

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.

Featuring a fully equipped kitchen and a wardrobe with a swing-out, illuminated mirror, the Marco Polo also comes with a sliding seating/sleeping couch, rotating front seats, a folding/sliding table and a roof bed. This compact camper van combines maximum functionality with supreme comfort and style, setting new standards in its segment in the process. The interior resembles a modern lounge for discerning individualists who wish to use their camper van both for leisure purposes and on an everyday basis. For an exceptional quality feel its modern design features stylish light and dark contrasts, high-grade materials, a standard floor covering that looks like yacht decking, and atmospheric LED interior lighting including optional ambient lighting.

The kitchen module has a remarkably innovative stowage system. It consists of a large, self-closing drawer with extending worktop, two smaller, self-closing drawers which can also be opened when the bed is folded out, and a large stowage compartment with a sliding door. The covers for the kitchenette are made of smoked safety glass. This means that light continues to flood in through the window even when the covers are folded upwards. The kitchenette is fully equipped with two gas burners, a sink and a compressor refrigerator with a capacity of 40 litres. The fresh water tank has a capacity of 38 litres, the waste water tank 40 litres. Both tanks are therefore considerably larger than in the predecessor model.
