Mercedes-Benz Sprinter & Minibus

A key player and a workhorse.  The Sprinter is more than a vehicle, it's a true partner you can always reply on to support you all the way when there's a job to be done.

As the van that established the whole vehicle segment, the Sprinter has been ahead of the crowd since 1995.  It is the result of the process of continuous development with which we ensure that the Sprinter always offers the best in terms of reliability, quality, safety, flexibility, economy, sustainability and service.

Best in its class – with the largest range of variants.

When we designed the Sprinter, we took on board all the ideas that can help to make your everyday work easier. For example, the panel van’s cargo volume of up to 17 m3 can be loaded from three sides*.  Whatever your transport requirements, your Sprinter makes it possible. Available in three wheelbases, three body lengths and with three different roof variants, the Sprinter is the perfect transport solution.

The list of equipment^ below makes loading and unloading your Sprinter even safer, even more efficient and even more convenient.

  • 270 ̊ rear doors
  • Electrically operated step for load compartment sliding door 
  • Flexible load securing and cargo-retention system
  • KEYLESS ENTRY for the load compartment sliding door 
  • Rear door step

* Load compartment sliding door on right side is available as optional equipment.

Setting new standards for safety.

The Sprinter has no need to hide behind any passenger car when it comes to safety specifications – its unrivalled safety packages are unique in the van segment. One of the highlights, a component of the Driving Assistance Package, is COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST. This system gives visible and audible warnings if there is insufficient braking distance and provides assistance with emergency braking. The optional safety packages and their components are shown in the table below.

Your Sprinter is delivered as standard with Crosswind Assist* and a range of standard safety features, such as a driver airbag and front passenger airbag, three-point seat belts with belt tensioners and belt force limiters for the driver and co-driver (where a single co-driver’s seat is fitted), head restraints with 2-way adjustment, load securing rings, a hydraulic braking system, adaptive brake lights and heated exterior mirrors with integrated additional wide angle mirrors. In addition to all this you can choose from a broad spectrum of further equipment options for even more safety.

*Only available on certain  models.

Incomparable. Functionality has never been more comfortable.

The new generation telematics, the multifunction steering wheel with chrome highlights, the shift/selector lever and the 'Tunja black' fleeced lined seat cover fabric are complemented by many other interior appointments and equipment items which increase driving comfort and enhance the overall efficiency of the working environment in your Sprinter. The spacious interior with its high quality ergonomic design meets the highest standards of functionality, quality and comfort. A large number of practical stowage facilities, such as those above the windscreen which are fitted as standard, offer plenty of storage space and keep the cab tidy.

The clear favourite, off the road too. 

There are many routes to business success – and not all of them take the form of paved roads. With the optional engageable all-wheel drive*, featuring increased traction, improved driving stability and latest generation ADAPTIVE ESP,® your Sprinter can also overcome the challenges presented by adverse weather and road conditions. With the 4ETS (electronic traction system), which automatically brakes the spinning wheels individually, a higher drive torque for sufficient tyre traction is produced.

In addition to its all-wheel drive capability, the Sprinter is available with the following equipment as standard to make off-road use even safer and more flexible.
 
*Available for selected variants

Your safety is our highest priority.

The most important standard features of your Sprinter are directed towards your safety. It is the first van to be equipped as standard with Crosswind Assist* which uses strategic brake applications to counter any tendency to drift off to the side of the road and so helps you stay on course. Its innovative ADAPTIVE ESP® dynamic handling control system takes account of the load status to improve directional stability and traction in critical situations. ADAPTIVE ESP® is complemented by a number of functions, two particularly important examples being Disc Wipe^ and Electronic Brake Prefill^^.

* Crosswind Assist is available for the panel van with a permanent GVW of 3.49 t or 3.88 t as well as mid, long or extra long body lengths and a standard or high roof. 
^ In the event of rain, this system regularly removes the film of water from the brake discs, thereby helping to reduce the stopping distance.
^^ Reduces the reaction time in the event of braking and therefore reduces the stopping distance too.

Next-generation diesel engines.

The world is moving faster. That's why the Sprinter is not just up to speed; it helps keep you in front.

Whichever engine you choose, delivering power on the road as effectively as possible is taken care of by the standard ECO Gear 6-speed manual transmission. The ECO Gear 6-speed manual transmission has a greater transmission spread, broader overall gear ratios and corresponding reduction in engine speed. Or, if you prefer, the 7G-TRONIC 7-speed automatic transmission is also available.

Available in two power output versions, our advanced 4-cylinder CDI diesel engines set new standards in terms of economic efficiency and sustainable mobility. If you're looking for more power, the V6 CDI diesel engine can deliver a torque output of 440Nm with the standard ECO Gear manual transmission or optional smooth, fully automatic transmission which no other van in the market offers. Increased torque, smoothness, economy and pulling power are all delivered across the range of Mercedes-Benz engines.

A van that drives like a car.

With the optional 7G-TRONIC 7-speed automatic transmission,the Sprinter is the first and only van in its class to offer the smooth running characteristics and ride comfort of a passenger car. Even when confronted with heavy traffic, the Sprinter’s dynamic handling makes city driving easy and enjoyable.

And to make your trip even more comfortable there is the option of the fully integrated Becker® MAP PILOT navigation system and a reversing camera to aid parking and enhance safety when manoeuvring.

You can choose from a range of optional seat configurations to configure the Sprinter to meet your specific requirements.

Move more people in style, comfort and safety.

Whether you choose from the Sprinter 313 standard length Minibus with or without factory fitted seating for 12, or take advantage of the various wheelbases, roof heights and engine output options available, the Sprinter Minibus will have you and your passengers travelling in the lap of luxury.

With its well-equipped modern interior and exterior and class-leading safety systems, including advanced stability control systems and up to six airbags, both driver and passengers enjoy a high degree of practicality, comfort and reliability.
