Renting a Mercedes Vito (lincasanova, are you there?)

Jump to last reply

I need to rent what is described as a Mercedes Vito, rated at 9 passengers and 8 pieces of luggage (which strikes me as overly optimistic), for a group of eight in Spain. I am concerned that the Vito is a "small" 9-passenger rather than a "large" one, meaning the seating will accommodate 9 but it's really a bit cramped – or a lot cramped.

I have rented-leased 9-PAX vans many times in Europe and know there are vehicles that are fine for 8 and even 9, and those that really don't work for such a number.

Besides crowding in the passenger area, some vans have a quite small luggage space, probably about 18 inches deep (by the usual several feet wide and high), which is quite limiting.

Any advice that anyone could give me about their experience with this vehicle, including photos, if you have them, would be most welcome.

(I realize that I may not get a Vito after all this, and that different rental agencies may have a given brand/model but with different specs, but I am playing the odds here.)

Many thanks in advance.
