There are many, many situations where a sedan (even a large one) cannot carry the number of people required. Minivans often fall short by one or two spots, and even when they can carry the full complement, are far from comfortable (or, if we’re being honest, something you and your group want to be seen arriving in!). All too often, in these situations, groups are forced to hire a minibus or other vehicles that is unnecessarily large and expensive given their needs. It was with this in mind we decided to include a somewhat smaller, but comfortable and sophisticated option in our fleet. It became clear in short order that the best option was easily the Mercedes-Benz 8-seater Viano van.
The Viano has been named by automotive critics and publications alike as the premier people-mover of its size (AA of Britain’s near-perfect review stated: “Image is everything in the world of business and it should come as no surprise that the Viano is the big cheese in the executive travel world.”). This statement comes as no surprise – the name ‘Mercedez-Benz’ is synonymous with luxury and success. And with the reputations our clients have worked hard to build, Corporate Coaches wants to make sure this reputation is evident in their mode of transport.
However, we certainly do not choose any of our vehicles on the name or public perception alone. We needed our 8-seater van hire option to be comfortable, well appointed, efficient and capable of meeting all our clients’ needs. The Viano delivers all this in spades. Far from having a cramped ‘minivan’ feel, the Mercedes is incredibly spacious, with the UK’s go to car guide, Parker’s, commenting the vehicle is“capable of carrying eight in comfort [with a] massive and versatile interior.” The vehicle that RAC touted as “a paragon of practicality” further stands out due to what they noted as “its rare combination of spacious seating and generous luggage capacity.” No longer do passengers have to pre-plan a lighter luggage plan due to expectations of limited luggage space. The Viano is also an excellent choice for groups smaller than eight with a large complement of luggage – the interior is very customisable. But if there is more luggage that can fit, we provide trailers at no extra charge!
Carrying the Mercedes name, the interior is just what you would expect with climate control, extremely comfortable seating and a number of convenient technological features to make your ride an infinitely relaxing one – from high-tech suspension to soak up any rough roads to ambient lighting and sublime sound systems for the musically inclined. We also make every attempt to minimize our effect on the environment, and with its revolutionary BlueEFFICIENCY engine technology, the Viano releases far less harmless emissions than similarly powerful engines, giving the best of both worlds.
For smaller groups hoping to avoid hiring multiple vehicles, being crammed into an uncomfortable minivan, or hiring an unnecessarily large vehicle, our 8-seater Mercedes-Benz Viano is a perfect choice. Cementing the status of your company or event from the outside, inside you and your party will ride in comfort and style – yet still, enjoy considerable savings.
