Mercedes Sprinter sets the pace on emissions and safety

The all new Mercedes Sprinter is expected to set the pace in its class in terms of fuel efficiency, emissions and safety when it goes on sale in June.

Along with a striking new appearance and engines that meet the future Euro VI emissions standards, the Sprinter also has a set of features which are expected the pique the interest of small business van buyers, including:

  • Best in class fuel economy of 44.4mpg;
  • Euro VI emissions compliance - the first van in its class to achieve this standard;
  • State of the art safety features;
  • Service intervals at 37,000 miles;
  • A 7G Tronic auto gearbox;
  • The latest entertainment system including Bluetooth connectivity and satellite navigation system.

The Sprinter’s much lauded new safety system comprises of Crosswind Assist, which is fitted as standard as an integral element of the vehicle’s electronic stability program. Collision Prevention Assist, Blind Spot Assist, Highbeam Assist and Lane Keeping Assist are all offered as options or as part of one of the Sprinter packages.

There are a range of engine variants available on the new Mercedes Sprinter, all of which meet the strict future Euro VI emissions tests, drastically reducing the production of nitrogen oxides, total hydrocarbons and particulate mass.

To date, the new van has undergone more than five million miles of endurance testing, passing each element of the test with flying colours.

When the Sprinter is released in June, both four and six cylinder engines will be available, producing output ranging from 95hp to 190hp. There is a choice of two transmission systems, from the ECO-Gear six speed manual or 7G Tronic Plus seven speed lock up with automatic clutch.

The Sprinter also comes with a striking new appearance, with a high bonnet and more distinctly shaped bumpers. From the rear, the new van is immediately recognisable with its double-segmented taillights.

If you’re in a rush to get behind the wheel of the new Mercedes, the Sprinter will be available to order in June with the first deliveries in September.
