KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 3/29/2013


Seeing as the aging fleet of Ford and GM vans can still get the job done, the notion of owning a Mercedes-Benz for your commercial hauling and people-moving needs might seem like overkill. But for those who believe "good enough" is not enough, there's the 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. In addition to higher-quality interior materials, more customizability, and better fuel efficiency than its domestic rivals, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is remarkably maneuverable around town. On the practical front, the optional high-roof allows someone 6-foot-3 to stand upright within the cargo area, and the load-in height is the lowest in the segment. As a people-schlepper, the Sprinter lineup offers everything from a 12-passenger van to a shuttle-style MiniBus with seating for up to 18.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you seek a commercial-grade vehicle capable of moving massive amounts of people or cargo, the Sprinter's laudable fuel economy, multitude of configurations (high-roof, 2500 or 3500 chassis, short or long wheelbase), and expansive cargo room will fulfill your utilitarian demands.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Less expensive newcomers like the Nissan NV and forthcoming Ram Promaster (available summer 2013) can match the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter step-for-step when it comes to versatility, customization, and driving dynamics. Furthermore, the 2014 Ram Promaster rates best-in-class for fuel economy.

What's New for 2013

Outside of a new preventative maintenance package, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter sees no changes of note.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van is surprisingly capable considering both its size and the rather small displacement of its 3.0-liter turbo diesel V6 engine. But, what the diesel lacks in horsepower, it more than makes up for in torque, which is what you really need to pull a heavy vehicle like the Sprinter. Acceleration isn't quick, but it is steady and predictable. We're impressed at how quiet the Sprinter's diesel engine is, even under full throttle. Mercedes has tuned the Sprinter's suspension to be as smooth as possible while still delivering some stiffness in the areas of body lean and roll. Steering is a bit heavy at low speeds, but not so difficult that bulging biceps are required to turn the wheel. Despite its size, the 2013 Sprinter possesses a rather tight turning radius, an attribute most delivery drivers will hold in high regard.

Favorite Features

TURBODIESEL ENGINE
The 3.0-liter V6 offers impressive pulling power and equally impressive fuel economy in a package that is both longer lasting and easier to maintain than traditional gasoline-powered engines.

MINIBUS PACKAGES
Pre-packaged configurations for Hotel, Airport, Commuter and Paratransit make it easy to tailor the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter to fit your transportation needs.
