It marks the first time that the Marco Polo has won the Compact Camper Van category. The vehicle impresses with its unique combination of cutting-edge design, maximum functionality, and suitability for daily use. The elegant design idiom, high-quality materials, bright color scheme, and discreet ambient lighting make the camper van interior look very valuable. In addition, the camper van has space for up to four passengers, features a fully equipped kitchenette, a wardrobe, and very comfortable beds. Thanks to its compact body and outstanding vehicle technology, the Marco Polo is as dynamic, comfortable, and economical as a Mercedes-Benz car. What’s more, it can be driven into all standard parking garages and car washes. The camper van’s many innovative driver assistance systems provide it with an exemplary level of safety. Two of these systems, Crosswind Assist and ATTENTION ASSIST, come as standard.
