9G-TRONIC automatic transmission
The 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission is standard on all Vito versions with rear drive. The automatic transmission with torque converter replaces the 7G-TRONIC.

The driver can also select the "Manual" mode and change gears manually using the paddles on the steering wheel.
Safety and driving assistance systems
Active Brake Assist and DISTRONIC
The new Active Brake Assist detects a possible risk of collision with the vehicle in front. The system first warns the driver with a visual and audible warning. In case the driver reacts, the system supports the driver with the brake pad. However, if the driver does not react, the system applies effective braking action. The system also detects stationary objects and pedestrians passing by in urban traffic.
Introduced for the first time in Vito, DISTRONIC is an efficient tracking aid. The system follows the vehicle in front, maintaining the distance determined by the driver, and relieves the driver preciously in highway or stop-and-go traffic. The system, which works to maintain the faithful following distance with the vehicle in front, accelerates by itself or brakes in a soft form. The system, which detects a harsh brake movement, first warns the driver visually and audibly and then brakes autonomously.
Renovated and better quality interior
The new Vito features the "Mercedes Star" positioned in the middle of the completely new front grille integrated with DISTRONIC and optional equipment for Active Brake Assist or body-colored front bumpers. In addition, all Vito versions are optionally available in a full chrome version.
The interior of the new Vito Tourer has also been updated. The previously used "Tunja" fabric gives way to the "Caluma" fabric, which offers a flexible structure and elegant appearance. At the left and right ends of the dashboard, new turbine-like ventilation grilles come into play, bringing a sporty look. The center console in Glossy Piano Black, offered as part of the Chrome Package, offered as standard in the Vito Tourer, Vito Mixto and Vito Combi models, further raises the perception of quality. Chrome is also applied around the ventilation grilles, along with the spoken hardware. - Carmedia.com
