Teased and re-teased via either official sketches or caught by our spy-photographers testing pre-production prototypes, the Mercedes-Benz Viano replacement now shows its interior in all its glory.
The following set of photos were first posted by Autocar in one of the rare “pin it in the calendar” moments when they actually do have an insider scoop about an upcoming model.

Set to switch back to the V-Class moniker – which hasn't been used since 2003, when it was replaced by the current Viano – the new Mercedes-Benz MPV is set to fill in the void left by the disappearance of the R-Class from the German manufacturer's model range.

Apart from the much more upscale ambiance, the passenger version of the 2015 V-Class is also set to sport a new touch-pad control interface that's used in conjunction with the now familiar Comand controller. With it, users can effectively use hand-writing to communicate with the Comand infotainment system or the navigation.

As with previous generations, the more rugged, light commercial vehicle version will sport the “Vito” nameplate, while the premium passenger version shown in the photos below will technically be a luxury office on wheels if fitted with the right features. The production version was initially set to be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, with the market launch to happen in July 2014, but these leaked photos make us believe that we may get a taste of how the car looks much sooner than that.
