It comes in a new look. And the inner values are convincing as well. With its new appearance, the Sprinter will probably make some new friends. Highly efficient thanks to its low fuel consumption, safe thanks to its innovative assistance systems, and fit for the future thanks to Euro VI.
The new Sprinter offers a new design, five new safety systems, engines that meet the future Euro VI emissions standard and an excellent, low fuel consumption. Five new assistance systems will help reduce the number of accidents. The following systems are celebrating their world debut in the Sprinter: Crosswind Assist, which is fitted as standard, as well as COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST and Blind Spot Assist, which are both optional. Other new features include Highbeam Assist and Lane Keeping Assist. In addition, Mercedes-Benz has improved the Sprinter’s handling even further. The lowering of the chassis has improved the van’s drag and fuel consumption and makes it easier to load and unload cargo.
The new Sprinter is the world’s first van to meet the future Euro VI emissions standard in all of its engine variants. Euro VI drastically reduces the emission limits for nitrogen oxides (NOx), total hydrocarbons (THC), and particulate mass.
The developers have used the additional exhaust treatment stage to optimize the injection and combustion processes as well as the boost pressure. The results are lower fuel consumption and less combustion noise.
The new Sprinter’s appearance has also been substantially enhanced and made more striking. In line with Mercedes-Benz’ current design, the van’s radiator grille is now more vertical. The grille’s three slats are perforated and wedge-shaped. Another change involves the headlights, which are now more angular. The new hood is higher and the bumpers are more distinctly shaped. The new Sprinter is immediately recognizable from the rear, due to its double-segmented taillights. Its interior has also been further enhanced. Comfort has been boosted by the new upholstery and seat coverings, the thicker steering wheel makes gripping easier, and the fresh air nozzles boast chrome applications if the customer opts for a multifunctional steering wheel. The knob of the gearshift lever has been redesigned as well.
