This comes in the form of the new variant called the V 220 d Long with Luxury Seats, which as the name suggests, is equipped with two plush captain’s seats on its second row. The said captain’s seats are clad in leather and provide more space and comfort than the regular V-class' seats. 

These seats can also slide forward and backward with a simple push of a button. Apart from that, the aforementioned captain’s seats also have six-way power adjustments, and the seat-back can be reclined up to sixty degrees. These also come with an adjustable leg rest.

In total, the V 220 d Long with Luxury Seats can carry up to six occupants including the driver.
