Safety as a result of innovation: The Sprinter facelift 2013 features several assist systems which have never been seen before in the transporter segment before.

With five new assist and safety systems, Mercedes-Benz expands its role as the world’s innovation leader in the transporter segment. The systems at a glance:

No chance for side wind

Crosswind Assist forms part of the Electronic Stability Program and is standard-fit. Crosswind Assist virtually fully compensates for the effects of gusts of wind on the vehicle, within the bounds of physical possibilities. The result: less active course-correction is required.

Always a distance

DISTRONIC proximity control comprises two functions: it includes a forward collision warning, and it can also sense that a collision might be imminent. Whenever needed, the Adaptive Brake Assist is automatically engaged.

Everything at a glance

Blind Spot Assist uses four short-range radar sensors and alerts the driver upon detecting another vehicle moving in the parallel lane in the blind spot: by means of a red warning signal, which appears in the glass of the exterior mirror, or – if the driver overlooks this warning and indicates to change lane – an acoustic warning signal will additionally start.

Safely on track

Such a signal is also activated if the vehicle is about to cross a solid line with the driver neither accelerating nor decelerating the car, as the Lane Keeping Assist considers this as unintended.

Optimum light

Highbeam Assist automatically changes from high-beam mode to dipped-beam mode, thus allowing for a continuous adaptation to the prevailing traffic situation. The system ensures better and earlier recognition of the course of the road – and it adjusts the headlamp range automatically so oncoming traffic or vehicles in front are not blinded.


Regardless of what job you have to tackle – the Sprinter will make your day-to-day tasks easier. And even if those tasks are weighty ones, together, you’ll move mountains. Thanks to a host of different variants and over 600 optional features, the Sprinter can meet a wide variety of requirements.
