The van looks pretty stock on the outside, but for camping duties the Marco Polo has a few tricks lined up its sleeve inside – from the stowage facilities and seating/sleeping arrangements to the all the outdoorsy equipment. The interiors get a complete, high quality makeover with a new floor plan, fabric or leather seats, yacht-inspired wooden flooring, piano black trim and porcelain-colored surfaces to give an impression of “unexpectedly generous space,” according to Mercedes-Benz.

Being a camper, the van gets a dedicated kitchenette with two gas burners, a sink and a compressor refrigerator with a capacity of 40 liters and a cooling output of up to minus 20 degrees Celsius. On board are two tanks-the fresh water tank with a capacity of 38 liters, and the waste water tank with 40 liters of capacity.

It’s time to sleep. With the flick of a switch, the two electrically adjustable rear seats will be transformed into a lavish bed. And for those who want to gaze at the stars for a bit before sleeping, there’s a second one as well in the pop-up roof compartment.

The Marco Polo will be offered with three four-cylinder turbo diesel engines in three output variants (134hp, 161hp and 188hp). It goes on sale in Germany July 29th onwards.
