The New Mercedes Sprinter Announced
Get Mercedes Sprinter from Westwood Motor Group
Mercedes-Benz is claiming several ‘firsts’ for its new Sprinter – including the world’s first van to meet the future Euro VI emissions standard in all of its engine variants. And Mercedes says a combination of factors including highly efficient diesel engines, optimised powertrain, longer axle ratio, and the BlueEFFICIENCY PLUS package has reduced fuel consumption to a minimum of 44.4 mpg (NEDC combined), which is claimed as a record value for the segment.
The new Sprinter will also come with the ASSYST maintenance calculation system as standard in Europe. Thanks to this system, the van’s maintenance intervals have been extended to up to 37,000 miles.
Mercedes has pioneered driver assistance systems with the Sprinter and five new assistance systems – including several claimed to be van firsts – will be available on the new Sprinter. They are Crosswind Assist, which is fitted as standard, and Collision Prevention Assist and and Blind Spot Assist, which are both optional. Other new features are Highbeam Assist and Lane Keeping Assist. The developers at Mercedes-Benz are convinced that these electronic assistants will play a key role in helping to reduce accidents in the van sector.
The new Sprinter’s appearance has also been substantially changed. In line with Mercedes-Benz’s current design, the van’s radiator grille is now more vertical and ‘confident’. The grille’s three slats are perforated and wedge-shaped. Not only does this change create a more dynamic impression, it also increases the airflow.
Inside, comfort has been boosted by new upholstery and seat coverings, a thicker steering wheel makes gripping easier, and the fresh air nozzles boast chrome applications if the customer opts for a multifunctional steering wheel. The Sprinter is also fitted with a new-generation radio system that equips the van not only with state-of-the-art electronic entertainment features and Bluetooth telephone equipment (including a telephone keypad and phonebook), but also the Becker MAP PILOT navigation system.
Customers can order the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter beginning in June 2013; deliveries will commence in September.
