Mercedes-Benz Sprinter


It is not often I get the chance as an journalist to drive a few commercial but when I do it is always interesting. So I was excited to get a chance to drive a huge, brand new Mercedes Sprinter van. Previously under the Dodge brand a Ram grille, the Mercedes-Benz built is a back for 2013 as a proper with three pointed and all.

Manufactured in Düsseldorf and in Germany, Mercedes-Benz Sprinters are in 2500 and 3500 models a 3.88, 4.53 or 5.0 ton Gross weights and in three different styles: Cargo van, Van and Cab chassis. The Sprinter can be Standard Long (22#8217;8#8243;) or Extra-Long with a 12#8242; or 14#8217;2#8243;

Stand out features include doors that swing 270 degrees and lock to the body The sliding door on the passenger’s is the widest in its class at 4#8217;3.2#8243;. the Cargo van can be equipped with a sliding door on the driver’s something no competitor has.

All are flush with the floor for loading and the high roof mean interior height in the load area is increased 5#8217;5#8243; to a whopping 6#8217;4#8243;! means you can stand up and walk the vehicle from the front seat cabin without outside.

The Sprinter is powered by a 3.0-litre, V6 engine with direct and BlueTEC technology providing the with 188 horsepower and an excellent 325 of torque at just 1,400 Gearbox is a 5-speed automatic very interestingly with mode. Fuel economy for class of vehicle is about 13 km according to driving conditions and

Despite its huge length, the rack-and-pinion steering has a class-leading turning circle and proves and surprisingly nimble.

Commercial driver will the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter’s premium As well as a tilt/telescopic steering and as standard air conditioning, firm-supportive with a height-adjustable cushion are along with a reclining seat. Heated seats are but for Canada with its cold I think heated seats really be as standard as the huge of this van does get very

The cockpit is well designed and most controls are good, but a few niggles- the shift lever is to manipulate and the stereo, and minor center consoles are very and hard to operate if you are wearing on a cold winters days. I the buttons/controls need to be chunkier with the cup holders. The assortment of compartments around the cockpit, and the windshield is good, but cargo and lockable covers for tools etc be a good option.

Safety is superb, with and front passenger airbags available side airbags and airbags to maximize thorax and protection. Of note and very is the new electronic stability program Adaptive ESP, which the attributes of the antilock braking (ABS), acceleration skid (ASR), electronic brake distribution (EBD), Brake (BAS) and start-off assist This handling stability aid a number of parameters in critical to activate the brakes on individual as well as adjusting engine to stabilize the vehicle in the event of situations.

The optional Parktronic system parking manoeuvres easier by drivers of any object in front or the Sprinter through visual and warnings. A rear-view camera 7-inch monitor is also but in my opinion these features really be as standard equipment as is no rear visibility at all with rear doors and this is a vehicle destined for crowded routes.

Being a Mercedes with all the and quality means the cost top domestic rival will be The base MSRP of $42,900 is but the higher value at resale, fuel economy, high dynamics and safety are well it. Highly recommended.

2013 Sprinter 2500 Van. from $42,900.
