Unrivalled Comfort


At the heart of the Brotherwood® Klastar WAV conversion for the Mercedes-Benz V-Class is a perfectly level, lowered floor. By lowering the floor, visibility for the wheelchair user out of the windows is greatly increased. More headroom creates a comfortable, spacious cabin ideal for taller wheelchair users. The centre of gravity for the wheelchair user is also reduced, considerably reducing the sensation of body roll as the vehicle leans from side to side.

The level lowered floor offers greater comfort, with a naturally ergonomic seating position. Travelling centrally also ensures a more comfortable ride for the wheelchair user, as fewer bumps in the road surface are felt when positioned further forward in the vehicle. The V-Class rides exceptionally well, with a smooth and refined experience for all passengers.

Inclusive Design


The Brotherwood® V-Class conversion is designed with families in mind. The flat, level lowered floor with central wheelchair position enables the wheelchair user to travel inclusively, as part of the family group. An equal eyeline for all passengers enables easier conversation, better outward visibility and promotes the inclusion of the wheelchair user.

A further pair of seats can be optionally equipped in the third row. The high-quality seats match the original Mercedes-Benz V-Class upholstery for a luxury feel. Choose from folding cantilever seats, extremely comfortable and large enough for adults; or our slim tailored fixed seats which allow full-time wheelchair access.


Quality Redefined


The Mercedes-Benz V-Class WAV is the pinnacle of quality, luxury and safety, packed with technology to enhance driver experience, ride quality and safety. This class-leading vehicle is complemented by the Brotherwood Klastar conversion – a stunning feat of engineering which redefines comfort and quality for Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles.

The Klastar conversion is thoughtfully designed to enhance passenger safety of the V-Class; the PAWRS 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.

Conversion Process

The Brotherwood ‘Klastar’ Mercedes-Benz V-Class WAV is expertly engineered to provide market-leading interior headroom, visibility, comfort and inclusion.

Our unique conversion process utilises precision engineering and unique design to install our signature flat, level lowered floor. Reducing the centre of gravity reduces the feeling of body-roll when compared to a wheelchair travelling the standard-height floor, whilst giving a clearer view out of the windows and windscreen.

Finished with our handcrafted interior the Klastar truly stands a class apart.

V-Class Features

Mercedes V-Class Wheelchair Floor

Low, Flat, Level Floor

A steeply 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 level, lowered 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 (subject to availability). 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.
