Marco Polo and Marco Polo ACTIVITY with all-wheel drive: More traction for maximum flexibility in recreational and day-to-day use

  • 4MATIC all-wheel drive: maximum traction and handling stability with exemplary efficiency
  • The Marco Polo: modern travel lounge for discerning individualists
  • The new "Mercedes-Benz Touch" app: convenient operation of the infotainment system via smartphone
  • The Marco Polo ACTIVITY: the all-rounder all set for any adventure
With the Marco Polo and Marco Polo ACTIVITY, Mercedes-Benz has succeeded in adding new highlights to the compact camper and recreational van segment. Both models feature modern design, ultimate functionality and excellent sleeping comfort, they are equally ideal for long trips or daily and urban use. After the top 250 d models rated at 140 kW (190 hp), the engine variants 220 d (120 kW/163 hp) and 200 d (100 kW/136 hp) are also available with all-wheel drive. This means that the Marco Polo and Marco Polo ACTIVITY offer even more flexibility in recreational and day-to-day use. A further convenience highlight is also available for the Marco Polo: the "Mercedes-Benz Touch" app, which was specially developed for the infotainment system COMAND Online. For the first time in a camper van, it is possible to operate the infotainment system from any seat using a smartphone – and even from a camping chair placed outside the door of the Marco Polo.
4MATIC all-wheel drive: maximum traction and handling stability with exemplary efficiency
With 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive the Marco Polo and Marco Polo ACTIVITY offer almost limitless possibilities for any need – and with exemplary fuel efficiency. All three Marco Polo 4MATIC models consume only 6.7 l per 100 km (177 g CO2/km). The Marco Polo ACTIVITY all-wheel drive models 200 d, 220 d and 250 d are even satisfied with 6.6 l per 100 km (174 g CO2/km).
The 4MATIC drivetrain which also powers the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and C-Class has a compact, lightweight and low-friction design with a longitudinally mounted engine and the transmission integral with the transfer case. In conjunction with the ESP®, ASR and 4ETS dynamic handling control systems, the basic 45 to 55 percent drive torque split between the front and rear axles provides for effortlessly superior and reliable handling. If one or more wheels lose traction, 4ETS slows them down in a fraction of a second and automatically distributes power to the wheels with better roadholding. Conventional mechanical differential locks are therefore not needed.
This technology, which is also deployed in Mercedes-Benz SUVs and off-road vehicles, saves on weight and at the same time increases driving safety and comfort. This enables the Marco Polo and Marco Polo ACTIVITY 4MATIC models to take bumpy gravel roads, muddy dirt roads, snow-covered passes and rain-soaked roads in its stride. It also improves moving off and acceleration, particularly on poor road surfaces or in unfavourable weather conditions. Also on board of all the all-wheel drive models as standard is Downhill Speed Regulation (DSR).
The compact exterior dimensions, with a length of 5.14 m and a width of 1.93 m (excluding mirrors), combine with the electromechanical power steering to ensure great manoeuvrability and impressive agility. And with a height of 1.98 m, both models are able to enter all normal garages, multi-storey car parks, underground garages and car washes. The same also goes for the 4MATIC models. The vehicle height remains unchanged thanks to the compact design of the all-wheel drive system.

The Marco Polo: modern travel lounge for discerning individualists
Whether with all-wheel or rear-wheel drive – the Marco Polo combines maximum practicality with exceptional comfort and style. The compact camper van features a fully equipped kitchenette with an innovative stowage system, a wardrobe with a swing-out, illuminated mirror, rotating front seats, a folding/sliding table and a roof bed. The two beds offer outstanding sleeping comfort for up to four persons. The interior has the atmosphere of a modern lounge for discerning individualists. Modern interior design featuring an elegant light-dark contrast, high-quality materials, flooring in yacht decking look as standard and atmospheric LED interior lighting including optional ambience lighting conjure up an exceptionally high-class feel inside the vehicle. The seats are upholstered in a choice of silk beige and black Santiago fabric, silk beige Lugano leather or now also in black Lugano leather.
The new "Mercedes-Benz Touch" app: convenient operation of the infotainment system via smartphone
Additional convenience is provided by the "Mercedes-Benz Touch" app, which was developed for the infotainment system COMAND Online. This features a virtual rotary pushbutton control with which all audio and video sources, the internet and the navigation system can be controlled via a smartphone. This means that the music volume can be turned up and down, or a different track can be selected from the comfort of the rear bench seat, from the luxury bed under the roof or from outside on the camping chair.
The optional COMAND Online multimedia system features fast 80 GB hard-disc navigation, a DVD player for cosy movie nights, internet access and numerous additional functions. It excels with an exceptionally photorealistic map display, relaying of traffic data in real time, useful apps and an additional Bluetooth® profile allowing internet access using an iPhone®, for example. Operation is via the touchpad, the COMAND Controller, LINGUATRONIC voice control or via the "Mercedes-Benz Touch" app. Together the app and touchpad are the key to the most modern control and display concept in this vehicle category.
The Marco Polo ACTIVITY: the all-rounder all set for any adventure
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 variants (front, rear and all-wheel drive), it can be customised to individual requirements. As such, it is the ideal vehicle the whole year round for young families as well as for sports and outdoor activity enthusiasts.
The Marco Polo ACTIVITY is equipped as standard with a three-seater bench with backrest and bed extension. The bench can be slid 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. Under the bed are two drawers that can be removed, allowing long items to be loaded through the resulting space. When spending the night in the vehicle, the bench seat easily converts 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 Marco Polo. Featuring a cold foam mattress and spring elements with high point elasticity, this bed offers a standard of sleeping 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, pre-installation for a radio and an auxiliary battery supplying power in the interior. Depending on the outside temperature and intensity of use, the battery will last for up to three days without recharging.
