The Vario can be used as a basis for a diverse range of bodies. (The bodies shown here are not directly available ex-factory.)


Tailor-made transport: an idea with staying power Take the advantages of a van, combine them with the strengths of a light-duty truck and apply a modular principle. The result is a recipe for success – a recipe to which the Vario owes its exceptional positioning within the van segment. To ensure that it maintains that position, we have built in a little futureproofing – with modified engines and transmissions, a new interior and above all with BlueTec® – SCR diesel technology from Mercedes-Benz, which enables the Vario to comply with the EURO4 emissions standard.

The Vario is available in over 60 exfactory variants, models ranging from the more conventional panel van to chassis variants for specific body solutions. This immensely broad, applicationoriented range and the wide variety of individualisation and custom-body options ensure that there is a Vario for virtually every commercial need. Or in other words, the Vario that doesn’t exist has yet to be invented.

Presenting the ideal business model Based on an adaptable range of combinations and custom-body options, the Vario model series offers tailor-made yet cost-effective vans for your transportation needs. Ideal, whether you’re transporting packaged or bulk goods, urgent deliveries or sensitive items, tools or a whole team of workers. Whichever variant you decide on, there are certain core qualities that all of our Vario models share – the legendary quality, reliability and longevity that characterise a Mercedes-Benz van.


The panel van. Space in abundance Load capacities similar to those of a light-duty truck combined with the handling qualities of a van – if this is what you are looking for, the Vario panel van is the perfect solution. In terms of both payload and capacity, this is a giant among vans and, as such, the ideal partner in regional haulage, in industry and commerce, in the removals business or in the public sector.

The Vario panel van offers a choice of different capacities and equipment, designed to meet your own personal requirements and to tailor your van specifically to your intended use. The panel van is packed with intelligent, wellengineered details: the virtually vertical side walls and the flattened wheel housings, for example, ensure an effective use of space when stacking or when adding individual interior fittings. The Vario panel van is ideally designed for loading Europallets too.

The dropside. A reliable partner With its proven record as one of life’s “takers”, the Vario dropside offers maximum payload limits which make it perfect for heavy loads – ideal, for example, in the construction industry, in the building materials trade, in the haulage sector or when transporting packaged goods. It is available with a standard cab or a crew cab. The crew cab comfortably seats up to 7 – and still leaves plenty of room for cargo in the dropside body*.

Choosing a Vario dropside means refusing to compromise – both in terms of suitability for everyday use and in terms of longevity. The various sizes of aluminium dropsides feature solid fixtures and a robust design – everything is where it should be, and there is an unmistakable logic behind every design decision. You can tell straight away that this is a van that is based on practic al expertise and designed for practical use.

▸ Four wheelbase variants* ▸ Cargo area of 6.92 m² to 14.79 m²* ▸ Payload of approx. 2.5 t to around

The tipper. A versatile all-rounder When the load is heavy and the roads are narrow, the Vario tipper comes into its own. With power steering and a turning circle approaching that of a car, it is as impressive on cramped building sites as it is in the market gardening and landscaping sectors. The extremely practical combination of high payload and easy handling is also available with a crewcab as an option*.

True to their origins, all Vario tippers are extremely versatile. Configured as a three-way tipper ex-factory, they can be loaded with up to around 3.8 tonnes and unloaded from the right, left or rear. And if you have to deal with more than your fair share of rough terrain, you will appreciate the versions with permanent all-wheel drive and standard-fitted interaxle and rear differential locks*. ▸ Two wheelbase variants* ▸ Payload of up to around 3.8 t thanks

to reinforced tipper* body and reinforced frame* ▸ Available with optional crew cab, which seats up to 7, instead of standard cab* ▸ Vario 813 DA/816 DA/818 DA allwheel-drive tippers designed for use on rough terrain (medium vehicles)* *Factory fitted tipper bodywork not available in the UK. Local alternatives are available. Your Mercedes-Benz van dealer will be pleased to discuss other alternatives

The ideal workplace The timeless design is continued inside the Vario. You’ll be impressed by the clear layout and functionality of the cab and the robustness of the materials used. There is space in abundance on board – and ample comfort for up to 7 people. Comfort is a key factor here. After all, the job is stressful enough.


The interior of the Vario has a straightforward design, free of unnecessary clutter that could distract the driver from the task in hand. The design focuses on taking the stress off the driver and providing the others on board with a relaxed, comfortable ride.

▸ Clear cockpit layout, non-reflective

▸ Comfortable seats, designed to be

Glossary AdBlue Fuel tank

SCR cat

BlueTec® SCR diesel technology BlueTec® is the pioneering SCR diesel technology from Mercedes-Benz: a costeffective and ecological solution which helps your Vario to comply with the EURO4 emissions standard. The SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) exhaust gas treatment process uses technology capable of ensuring the necessary reduction in exhaust gas emissions while optimising engine output and fuel consumption at the same time. The BlueTec® system includes modified engines with a higher peak pressure, which improves combustion and reduces the number of particulates. Further com-

ponents of the system include a catalytic converter and an AdBlue tank. AdBlue additive is simply filled up from a pump and carried in this separate tank on board. From here it is fed via a metering unit into the exhaust gas from the engine and is converted by the heat into ammonia, which is required for the chemical reaction in the catalytic converter. The catalytic reaction here converts the nitrogen oxides into ecologically harmless substances – nitrogen and water.

Anti-lock braking system ABS ABS prevents the wheels from locking during braking. Speed sensors continuously monitor the speed of each wheel. If ABS detects that a wheel is at risk of locking up, the brake pressure is reduced. When the danger of locking has been averted, the pressure is increased again. ABS helps the driver to maintain steering control of the van, even during emergency braking.

All-wheel drive The permanent all-wheel-drive variants of the Vario deliver enhanced pulling power and traction on difficult terrain. A selectable off-road ratio ensures greater tractive power on rough ground. To further improve traction, both the differential in the transfer case and the rear axle differential can be locked.

Differential lock The differential lock ensures that the wheels of a driven axle turn at the same speed. This prevents individual wheels from spinning, which improves traction and enhances safety, particularly on uneven or slippery surfaces, when pulling away on a gradient or on rough terrain.

Driver’s front airbag To round off the safety equipment, a front airbag is available for the Vario’s driver’s seat. It enhances driver safety, acting in partnership with the seat belt as an additional retention system.

44

Glossar y

Note: Airbags in no way diminish the need for occupants to fasten their seat belts correctly at all times.


Load restraint Due to the dynamic forces which occur when transporting goods, an unsecured load can start moving uncontrollably due to slipping, tilting or rolling, thus increasing the risk of accident and injury.

With their load-restraint systems and wide range of optional extras, MercedesBenz vans provide professional loadsecuring solutions. The Vario includes a range of different bulkhead variants and load-securing rings.

(Top left and centre diagrams) Load restraint is primarily achieved by placing loads against the front or rear bulkheads and the sides of the vehicles, and then filling any gaps. It is also possible to use aids such as braces, bars, partition nets or cargo barriers (direct load restraint) (Top right diagram) Loads can be tied down to the floor using lashings. This increases friction between load and floor, preventing slippage (indirect load restraint)

Safety steering column The safety steering column, installed in the Vario in conjunction with the driver’s front airbag, helps to reduce movement of the steering column in the event of a frontal collision. The aim is to minimise the risk of injury for the Vario driver in a frontal collision. The various joints and telescopic sections allow the safety steering column to yield in a frontal collision. In this way the movement of the steering wheel is largely decoupled from the deformation of the front-end structure of the vehicle.

Three-point seat belts with belt tensioners Correctly worn three-point seat belts restrain vehicle occupants in their seats in the event of a frontal collision. The system can be extended with a pyrotechnic seat belt pre-tensioner, which is available in conjunction with the driver’s front airbag. If the seat belt pre-tensioner is activated via the airbag control unit, it tautens the seat belt in fractions of a second. This means that the occupant takes part in the collision-induced vehicle deceleration in longitudinal direction at an early stage and as a result is subjected to a lower dynamic load. It can also reduce forward displacement

of the occupant, so the danger of the head and body contacting the steering wheel and/or interior components is reduced. If the driver’s front airbag (special equipment) is selected, the driver’s seat is fitted with the seat belt pre-tensioner as standard. Note: Never drive without your seat belt!

Upholstery The high-quality fabric and/or leatherette upholstery lines for the Vario are designed for heavy-duty use. They are easy to care for, hard-wearing and underline the visual elegance of the interior.

▸ “Brasao” fabric upholstery, black

This hardwearing, dirt-repellent, flame-retardant fabric is the standard upholstery.

▸ Leatherette upholstery

Particularly easy to care for, this black leatherette upholstery is available as an optional extra.
