When we hear the words “Marco Polo,” we instantly recall the days of wandering aimlessly in the pool for a half-hour with our eyes closed. Turns out he was a real guy, and we hear he even sucked at the game named after him.

But Mercedes-Benz thinks “exploration” when using the famous exploder’s name for its new camper van. Based on the latest-gen V-Class, the Marco Polo has been developed in cooperation with the camper van experts at Westfalia, and the result is a blend of functional and fancy. Get all homey with the two gas burners, sink and compressor refrigerator. The included fresh water tank has a capacity of 38 liters, while the waste water tank holds 40 liters. Sleep it off on the two-seater bench in the rear which can be repositioned or converted into a bed at the touch of a button. Choose from three four-cylinder turbo diesel engines in three output variants (134hp, 161hp and 188hp). Get your orders in (in Germany) starting July 29.
