Vehicles with Safety & Quality Ratings
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is all-new this year, with new exterior and interior styling, a new standard 4-cylinder diesel engine with a 7-speed automatic transmission and additional accident-avoidance safety equipment. There is more high-end optional equipment too, such as an available onboard navigation radio by Becker.
Outside of a new preventative maintenance package, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter sees no changes of note.
Once seen as awkward and overpriced, the 2014 Sprinter from Mercedes-Benz has become the norm. Serving everyone from shuttle services to fleet managers, the Sprinter has become the new darling of the service industry. Its tall roof, short hood and fuel-efficient diesel engine choices trump the competition in almost every category, save for towing and payload. Similar looking vans from Nissan, Ford and Ram have already debuted, but none have the Sprinter's proven track record. The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter can be configured to seat up to 18 passengers or serve as a rolling repair shop. The optional extended-height roof creates enough room to allow someone 6-foot-3 to stand completely upright, while the standard loading floor height is among the lowest in the segment.
