Mercedes Sprinter : The Premium Passenger Van Available In Market

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is a light and heavy commercial vehicle for mass people-carrying needs. The Sprinter is designed primarily for businesses like travel and tour agencies. Power comes from a 2148cc four-cylinder Common-Rail Direct Injection diesel engine in two states of tune. The Sprinter Business 311, which is a high roof model, puts out a power 109 bhp @ 3800 rpm and torque of 270 nm @ 1400- 2400 rpm, and the Sprinter Executive 313 delivers 129 bhp @ 3800 rpm of power and 300 nm @ 1600-2400 rpm of torque. A five-speed automatic transmission is standard. Despite being bigger and taller than everything else, the Sprinter is easily manoeuvrable thanks to a more modern chassis design. It feels notably less truck-like and benefits from the visibility afforded by its colossal windshield and short front end. Also a reasonably carlike driving position and respectable handling help make the Sprinter feel manageable around town.

Yes it has a Mercedes-Benz badge, but don’t expect wooden trim, leather upholstery or the latest high-tech gizmos inside the Sprinter. However, build quality is notably better than in other full-size vans, and it also has a more modern feel to it. Thanks to its sliding-door opening, the Sprinter makes entering and exiting the passenger area a cinch. Inside, it has a space-efficient design and with the low load floor and the high roof option walking upright inside the van is easy. The passenger van features four rows of seats behind the driver and comfortably seats 15 passengers and 1 driver. Comfortable seating space and legroom with reclining seat rows and roll-seat for the last seat row offers convenience for all passengers as well as more flexible space for luggage. Notable features in the top variant include 180° opening rear doors, dual air-conditioning with outlets in every row, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, 4-speaker hi-fi sound system of radio and CD/MP3 player with USB, central locking and keyless entry with immobilizer system, joystick gear shift lever on dashboard, interior lighting, electrically adjustable and heated rear-view mirrors.

The Sprinter is equipped with disc brakes all around with Electronic Stability Program and ABS to keep the vehicle from locking-up and skidding in panic braking situations. It is also equipped with Acceleration Skid Regulation (ASR), which is activated automatically whenever the engine is started, to control and enhance the traction with the aid of brakes and engine control. Self-supporting body including hollow sheet-steel components results in an extremely torsional rigid body with reinforced chassis. Stabilizer bars allow for better road holding and balance. A better crash behaviour is also achieved due to longitudinally fitted engine. There is a Drivers Airbag and safety belts for every seat as well.

The Sprinter is well suited for both urban or suburban environment and the highway. It is one of the best passenger van available in the market and hence significantly more expensive than most other vans in the segment. The extra cost may be hard to justify, but the Mercedes Sprinter brings a premium feel to the large van market and makes a great statement for a tourist bus with the powerful and superior heritage of the German brand.
