The armored Mercedes-Benz V-Class has been highly sought-after for VIP transportation amongst businessmen and politicians in Europe for decades, and INKAS has brought the armored Mercedes-Benz Viano to the North American market, adding it to their lineup of INKAS armored luxury passenger minivans.

Designed with high trim interior elements and premium security features, this Mercedes-Benz V-Class model provides a safe ride in style for up to eight occupants including the driver, and accommodates various seating arrangements for optimal comfort. Ideal for business leaders working on-the-go, the Mercedes-Benz Viano offers folding tables and cupholders in the second-row seats.

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz Viano comes with a redesigned bumper featuring distinctive cooling air inlets, sleek new headlights, and a new structure in the radiator grille, while its superior styling and luxurious interior truly make it stand out from other passenger minivans. The interior is equipped with cutting-edge details including a seven-inch touchscreen and infotainment system, high trim elements are also used in the instrument panel as well as side paneling. Finished with the finest materials, the luxury seats even feature reclining, massage and climate control. 

Making use of its expertise and skilled engineers, INKAS has succeeded in armoring this vehicle without impeding on the enjoyment of the interior cabin, specifically noted by the OEM-sized bulletproof glass. INKAS has also performed significant engineering reinforcements to the sliding door mechanisms and structure in order to support the extra weight of the ballistic glass installed within the doors, while keeping the automatic mechanism fully operable.

The INKAS Mercedes-Benz Viano is equipped with innovative lightweight armor providing protection to the CEN BR6 armoring level, and can withstand the explosion of two hand grenades detonated simultaneously below the minivan floor. INKAS has added armoring to the entire perimeter, ceiling, and floor, as well as integrated its own proprietary overlap system to protect door seams. It features state-of-the-art armoring solutions including premium ballistic glass, upgraded brakes and suspension, run-flat tires, and a P/A system as well as strobe lighting in order to further enhance the security of the vehicle.

Whether the vehicle is used for transportation of VIP clients or long rides in hostile areas, the armored 2021 Mercedes-Benz Viano will ensure exceptional performance and a smooth driving experience. Upon request, INKAS can accommodate various interior customizations to suit client preferences, as well as offer a vast array of additional protective systems.
