The Ultimate Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.
The Only V-Class Conversion with a Full-Length, Level Lowered Floor plus;
Up to 6 Seats + Wheelchair 7 Speed Automatic Powered Ramp & Tailgate
The Brotherwood® ‘Klastar’ Mercedes-Benz V-Class conversion is designed and engineered from the ground up at our manufacturing facility in Dorset, England, to be the ultimate Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.
The Klastar conversion is unique in it’s development, handbuilt and finished by a select team of our most experienced engineers; ensuring a quality of finish and craftsmanship a class above any other Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.
The Mercedes-Benz V-Class is the pinnacle quality, luxury and safety, packed with innovative technologies to enhance driver assistance, ride quality and safety. The Brotherwood® Klastar conversion is designed with passenger safety in mind; the Power Assisted Wheelchair Restraint System is dynamically tested, whilst the ‘STORQ’ Self-Tensioning Restraint System automatically tensions the wheelchair restraints; ensuring a safe and stable ride for the wheelchair user.
The Brotherwood® Klastar conversion is designed with families in mind. The lowered floor and central wheelchair position enables the wheelchair user to travel inclusively, as part of the family group. We also aim to provide an equal head-height for ablebodied and wheelchair seated passengers alike; this enables easier conversation and promotes the feeling of inclusivity and wellbeing for the wheelchair user.
In addition to 2 full-size passenger seats in the second row alongside the wheelchair user, a further 2 folding cantilever action seats can be optionally equipped in the third row. The high quality seats match the original Mercedes-Benz interior, are extremely comfortable and large enough to seat adults; yet can be folded aside in seconds when not in use or to allow wheelchair access.
At the heart of the Brotherwood® Klastar conversion is a perfectly level, lowered floor. This unique Brotherwood® design offers numerous benefits for the wheelchair user. By lowering the floor, the visibility for the wheelchair user out of the windscreen and side windows is greatly increased, making every journey more enjoyable. More headroom is also generated; creating a comfortable, spacious cabin ideal for taller wheelchair users. The centre of gravity for the wheelchair user is also reduced, which considerably reduces the sensation of body roll as the vehicle leans from side to side.
Ensuring that the floor is level offers greater comfort for the wheelchair user, with a naturally ergonomic seating position. Enabling the wheelchair user to travel centrally within the vehicle also ensures a more comfortable ride, as fewer bumps and undulations in the road surface are felt when positioned further forward in the vehicle.
Celebrating Over 5000 WAVs Converted
We reached a historic milestone this summer – converting and supplying our 5000th new WAV to yet another delighted client; the Wilkinson family, who can now enjoy comfortable journeys in and around their home town of Southampton and further afield.
I have to say I have been impressed with the handover and quality of the vehicle. The ride comfort for our daughter is vastly improved over our previous vehicle as well is her view of the journey. The attention to detail is second to none, from the USB ports we requested to the AC/DC convertor stored in a place which effectively conceals it. The fitting kit is probably the simplest and easiest we have had and should be standard on every wheelchair vehicle - it takes away the stress of a journey with the associated complications."

Low, Flat, Level Lowered Floor
A sloping floor, sitting too high or far back in the vehicle can not only be isolating, but also an uncomfortable ride for the wheelchair user. The low, level floor of a Brotherwood® conversion offers a stable, comfortable, natural seating position, for better visibility, inclusion and ride quality.
Folding Third Row Seats
A Pair of folding cantilever action seats can be optionally equipped in the third row. The high quality seats match the original Mercedes-Benz interior, are extremely comfortable and large enough to seat adults; yet can be folded aside in seconds when not in use or to allow wheelchair access.
Full Size Second-Row Seats
The second row seats are full size for optimal passenger comfort, yet still offer 26" of space in between thanks to our innovative Brotherwood configuration. This means the wheelchair user can travel between the 2 rear seats inclusively.
STORQ automatically applies extra tension to the wheelchair restraints – ideal for those with limited grip or dexterity who might struggle with traditional buckles. By ensuring the rear restraints are properly tensioned, the wheelchair user enjoys a safer, more stable ride.
The Hook-i PAWRS is a remote-controlled, powered front restraint system, to assist loading a wheelchair and passenger. No pushing required, simply attach the restraints and press the remote control for effortless loading of combined wheelchair and passenger weights up to 250kg.
Luxury and convenience go hand in hand. In addition to powered opening of the sliding doors and tailgate, the access ramp is fully automated, deploying and retracting via remote control.

This innovative system can use a variety of parameters to detect signs of tiredness and alert the driver, alerting you when it’s time to take a well earned break.
Collision Prevention Assist
Constantly monitors the distance between you and the vehicle in front, warning before a potential collision and automatically boosts the braking power in the event of danger.

The Power Assisted Wheelchair Restraint System is dynamically tested to safely restrain combined wheelchair and passenger.
The new patented Brotherwood STORQ System makes securing the wheelchair simple. Ensuring the wheelchair restraints are tensioned is critical for passenger safety and ride quality.
