The Mercedes-Benz T-Class will be revealed later this month. It will be based on the Citan van giving you space for five tall adults and a huge boot for the same price as an A-Class hatchback.

As a result it’s a rival to van-based family cars like the Peugeot e-Rifter, Vauxhall Combi Life and the Volkswagen Caddy

Mercedes-Benz T-Class price and release date

The Mercedes-Benz T-Class will be priced from around £25,000 when it goes on sale in the summer, following its 26 April reveal. A pure-electric model will follow in 2023 and is likely to be priced from around £32,000.

Mercedes-Benz T-Class exterior and interior design

The Mercedes T-Class will look like a Citan van with rear windows, body-coloured bumpers and alloy wheels replacing the steel items fitted to the Citan. 

It won’t be the most elegant looking machine on the road but in the case of the T-Class, form follows function. Its boxy exterior shape means you get lots of room inside – there’s space inside for five full-sized, individually adjustable seats. Large sliding doors give your passengers loads of access to the back of the car and mean you can open the doors without worrying they’ll get pranged in tight spaces.

While it has the space of a van, you can expect the T-Class to feel as posh as some cars. You’ll get an interior that’s made from soft-touch plastics and neat details like Mercedes’ trademark turbine-style air vents. 

You’ll also get a freestanding infotainment screen that’s driven by Mercedes MBUX operating system, which offers a remarkably accurate voice activation system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will also be fitted. 

Mercedes-Benz T-Class: engines and performance

The Mercedes-Benz T-Class will come with a choice of 1.3-litre petrol engines (with 100 or 130PS) or 1.5-litre diesels (with 95 or 115PS), a six-speed manual gearbox is fitted as standard with the option to upgrade to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. 

You can expect petrol models to return fuel economy of around 40mpg while the diesels will be good for more than 50mpg. A pure-electric model will join the line-up in 2023 with a range of more than 150 miles. 

We’ll have more info on the new T-Class following the car’s reveal on 26 April.
