The Vito is a medium size van produced by Mercedes, and first appeared in 1996. The radically redesigned and updated second series came out in 2003.
Like all vehicles in its class, the Vito is available as a panel van or a people carrier. The people carrier comes in various equipment levels, the most prestigious and luxurious of which are sold under the Viano name.
Compared to other vehicles in the same class, the Vito offers advantages in terms of chassis strength and engine power.
The panel van is available in various length and height combinations. While the body is not as square as that of the Trafic, for example, it is certainly average for the class. Cargo volume and load capacity are competitive too.
There is one problem, however, that the Vito shares with all vans: the standard liners are simply not able to prevent damage to the body panels if unsecured loads slide around or fall over.
If heavy items strike the bodywork, they can easily cause the sort of dents we are all too familiar with, along with cracks in the paint that expose the metal underneath. In time, this leads to the formation of rust and the classic brown streaks we see on so many vans. Repairing this kind of damage is extremely expensive – an expense easily avoided by fitting Syncro System van liners.
While the Vito’s standard floor is reasonably strong, is can still be dented by protruding parts or unevenly distributed loads.
To prevent this, the Syncro Group has been making floor liners in plywood or aluminium and bodywork liners in painted steel or aluminium for the Vito since 1996.
Syncro floor panels
for the Vito come in high-grip, damp-proof, 12 mm thick, marine-grade, resin-bonded plywood with stainless-steel edges at the doors, or in special, annealed aluminium alloy tread plate.
Syncro wall liners
for the Vito come in galvanised and painted steel or aluminium sheet. The vast Syncro catalogue also contains wheel arch liners, door liners and window grilles for the Vito.
Syncro floor and interior liners for the Vito are all made in Italy using sophisticated CNC machines to ensure excellent finish and competitive prices.
The materials used are lightweight and robust. Syncro liners save you money in the long run as they prevent costly damage to your Vito and help protect its resale value!
