Trendsetting, efficient, reliable.
It is so versatile that you will find just the right one for your transportation task and it looks so good that it is bound to always make a great impression. The new Sprinter Platform Vehicle offers an impressive variety of options, with 3 vehicle lengths, standard cab or crewcab and a loading area of up to 9.2 m2. Its many variants and available equipment / appointments range widely: from efficient entry-level vehicles to very comprehensively equipped vehicles.
Vehicles with the new front-wheel drive offer a favourable entry-level price and additional payload over vehicles with rear-wheel drive, for example. Drivers benefit from an intelligent operating and display concept as well as from a modular stowage compartment concept, which, just like the selection of multimedia and assistance systems, can be individually adjusted to your requirements. We have of course kept the well proven features. For example, many body and expansion solutions can continue to be used without major modifications.
This means, thanks to innovation and more than 20 years of experience, the Sprinter is once again setting a milestone as a forward-looking, efficient and reliable mobility solution that advances your company.
The cab of the new Sprinter Platform Vehicle with its typical Mercedes-Benz radiator trim and modern headlamps is already a visual highlight. The cockpit has also been redesigned and convinces equally with high-quality design and exceptional functionality. For example, with an intelligent, modular stowage compartment concept and KEYLESS START.
The loading area of up to 9.2 m2 is enclosed by high-quality aluminium sidewalls. This creates a robust loading area that is suitable for pallets and can accommodate two 1200 x 1000 mm industrial pallets side by side. Optionally, the stowage boxes on the right and left under the platform provide a lockable, splash-proof stowage area, e.g. for tools or material. Each has a volume of 30 litres.
Other benefits include the wide range of drive system variants: depending on the operational profile and desired handling characteristics, you can order your Sprinter Panel Van with front-wheel, rear-wheel or all-wheel drive1. Gearshifting is either manual via a 6-speed manual transmission2 or automatic via the 7G-TRONIC PLUS or the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission, unique in the segment3.
In order to make work as economical and pleasant as possible, various radios, multimedia systems and connectivity solutions are available for the Sprinter upon request. Depending on requirements, the offer ranges from the smartphone holder to the radio with Bluetooth® interface and hands-free function, as well as the multimedia system with high-resolution touchscreen, fast hard-disk navigation with 3D map display and smartphone integration4. Operation is just the way you want it: simple. The multimedia systems for example, can be operated via the high-resolution touchscreen or Touch Control button on the multifunction steering wheel. All operating and display units are easy to reach and read.
As the modern working world is full of digital solutions, we have equipped the Sprinter with an integral communications module, which forms the technical basis for a continuous internet connection within the vehicle. This allows the use of current and future Mercedes PRO services. Their benefits range from minimised downtimes to predictive Maintenance Management and a Digital Driver's Log, making a jumble of paper a thing of the past.
The Sprinter Platform Vehicle, with its loading area of up to 9.2 m2, its choice of standard cab or crewcab and 3 vehicle lengths, offers an impressive variety of options. This is extended by 4 engines, numerous optional extras, suspension versions and industry-specific solutions by body manufacturers. This allows you to configure vehicles with a permissible GVW of up to 5500 kg. If required, a trailer load of up to 3500 kg can additionally be attached. Optionally, the stowage boxes on the right and left under the platform provide a lockable, splash-proof stowage area, e.g. for tools or material.
The Sprinter Platform Vehicle is designed for safety throughout. The solid basis for this is formed by its bodyshell, which is particularly stable thanks to its construction and the material composition.
Add to this several assistance systems. After all, even the most experienced driver can get into situations in which support can be welcome and helpful. The range extends from the standard Crosswind Assist to Active Brake Assist and Lane Keeping Assist – the latter two being standard for vehicles with a permissible GVW over 3500 kg. In the dark, the optionally available LED High Performance headlamps illuminate the roadway far and bright.
In case of an emergency, standard airbags help to protect the driver in a collision. 5 further airbags are available for driver and co-driver upon request.
In the Sprinter you are choosing a vehicle that has impressively proven its economy for more than 20 years. The new Sprinter Platform Vehicle continues this success story with its proven quality and reliability. You benefit from its economy right from the outset: with an attractive entry price and numerous configuration options that allow you to order exactly what you actually need.
Because we like to make good things even better, we have continued to optimise the consumption of our diesel engines. Additional advantages for the economy of your business result from the additional payload thanks to the optional 50-litre main tank5 and the optionally available GRP rear axle suspension.
The Sprinter Platform Vehicle thus combines frugal fuel consumption and intelligent functionality into an all-round economically-efficient mobility solution.
