The design idiom of the headlamps deliberately cites the S-Class and so highlights the claim to leadership of the Mercedes among MPVs. The V-Class is the first vehicle in the segment which provides all light functions in LED technology as an optional feature. The all-LED headlamps with Intelligent Light System make for a visual highlight and at the same time enhance safety (see "Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive" section). Their inner workings are arranged on three levels from top to bottom. At the top are the LED indicators, which form the brand's hallmark "torch" and span all other lighting elements like an eyebrow. Underneath, running in a sweeping line, are the LED daytime driving lamps. Low beam, high beam and cornering light are arranged on the lower level. All in all, 34 LEDs in each headlamp give the vehicle an unmistakable appearance and, compared with conventional systems, offer much improved vision in the dark.
