K&N 33-3033 replacement washable air filter

A K&N air filter will add up to 50% more airflow into your Vito or V-Class engine

The Mercedes-Benz Vito is a light van available in an astonishingly large number of variations. Different engines, different drive axle options, different interior configurations. Given the vast variety of configurations, it’s amazing that a single air filter fits all Vito and V-series diesel models from 2014 through 2016, and K&N offers the perfect replacement: the 33-3033 panel air filter.

The Mercedes van is branded as the Vito when configured as a standard panel van, or as the V-Class when passenger seats and amenities are installed. It’s available in three different wheelbases, and interestingly enough, the choice of front wheel drive, rear wheel drive, and all-wheel drive configurations.

The 2.15 liter four-cylinder DOHC turbocharged diesel engine is available at three power levels: 114 CDI which produces 136 horsepower; V the 116 CDI with a 163 horsepower output, and the 119 BlueTEC, which pumps out 190 horsepower. The 163 horsepower and 190 horsepower versions employ a twin-turbocharger with a small, high pressure turbo providing a quick boost at low RPM and a large, lower pressure turbo providing increased performance at higher RPM. The 136 horsepower lower output version has only a single turbocharger.

A six-speed manual transmission is standard. A 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission with torque converter is optional for the Vito 114 CDI and Vito 116 CDI and standard equipment on the Vito 119 BlueTEC and the Vito 4x4 with all-wheel drive. It’s also the world's only seven-speed automatic transmission available in a van.

The 1.6 liter diesel engine installed in the Vito and V-Class is a 130 horsepower four cylinder DOHC design with four valves per cylinder and turbocharging, purchased from Renault and also used in various Renault and Nissan models.

While Mercedes-Benz diesel engines are well-known for producing power, there’s still an opportunity to add more horsepower, as well as increase torque. That’s why K&N has developed the 33-3033 replacement air filter for Mercedes V-Series and Vito vans. The K&N filter provides an increase of up to 50% more air flow to the engine. And by increasing the flow of air, the result can be better throttle response and improved torque at all points of your V-Series or Vito diesel engine’s operating range.

A K&N air filter will add up to 50% more airflow into your Vito or V-Class engine

The increased airflow of a K&N air filter is a result of utilization of multiple layers of oiled cotton filter media, which offers less resistance than traditional filters. This filter material also offers excellent filtration of microparticles that can damage your engine. To make certain that each filter design provides high intake airflow without sacrificing engine protection each is verified through K&N’s in-house testing lab, which adheres to strict ISO 5011 protocols.

Once the K&N 33-3033 air filter has been installed you’ve eliminated the need to purchase and replace traditional filters for the life of your Mercedes V-Series or Vito van. The only maintenance needed is a service you can do yourself in just a short time. At intervals of 50,000 miles or about 80,000 kilometers (depending on your driving conditions) clean and re-oil your air filter with a K&N air filter cleaning kit, returning it to like-new condition. Your one K&N air filter is designed to last for the lifetime of your vehicle, which K&N guarantees will perform for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles without requiring replacement.
