The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger Van is a vehicle worth considering if you have a large group to transport. The test vehicle has 12-seats, a high ceiling that allows you to walk inside, and a powerful turbocharged V6 diesel engine. This vehicle was built to run, according to Mercedes-Benz, and we agree.
What is a Sprinter Van? What is new in this van?
The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is ostensibly new for 2019, but underneath it’s virtually the same car, save for new LED headlights and taillights. The most important modifications for 2021 are a gasoline option for 1500 and 2500 Cargo, Crew, and Passenger Vans, a greater GVWR on 2500 and new 4500 models, and an optional 10.25-inch touchscreen display. All Cab Chassis versions now come standard with a window and thorax-pelvis airbag.
New 2022 Version will come with a “OM 654 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel with a cast aluminium block and Nano slide cylinder walls”. This diesel variant has 4 different versions 114, 150, 170 and 190 max horsepower which gives it an extra power and class.
Sprinter vans may be customised for HVAC and plumbing, electrical and telecommunications, product delivery, food refrigeration, and other common services.
How many people can accommodate in a Sprinter Van?
All private car service and limo rental providers says, “Although Mercedes-Benz offers a 15-seat configuration, the Sprinter Passenger Van can seat up to 12 passengers (14 seats for the passenger, plus one for the driver)”.
Features of the Van?
Push-button start, a 13-speaker audio system, a rear-view camera, USB charging connections, rear warm/cool vents, a roof-mounted A/C unit, a fuel-fired heater booster, 180-degree rear opening doors, and a GVWR rating of 9,050 pounds were all standard features on our Mercedes Benz Sprinter 2500 4×4 Passenger Van.
Our Sprinter Passenger Van has Active Brake Assist, Blind-Spot Assist Mirror, Attention and Traffic Sign Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, and a 360-degree camera as options. The 4*4 packages included a Jet-Black exterior, leatherette interior, comfort driver and passenger seats, and low and high range 4*4 options.
The interiors of the van –
According to technical auto body shops, the Sprinter Passenger Van has a high seating position and may benefit from a step inside. The view from the driver’s seat is commanding after we pushed ourselves up. The cabin isn’t luxurious, but this van is perfect for business use, so you won’t need anything else. Because this van featured the high roof option for increased headroom, we took a look into the cabin.
Our passenger van can seat up to 12 people, and there’s plenty of room behind the back seat for baggage, goods, and storage. It’s easy to load because the rear doors swing open 180 degrees. The side doors swing open to give a convenient access point for a passenger (minus the high step-up).
Technological Interior Support?
When backing up this enormous van, the driver can see clearly thanks to the large windshield and large side mirrors, as well as the rear-view camera. On the job, drivers may utilise the new MBUX infotainment touchscreen. The 10.25-inch display on our test model is one of two options. Sirius Satellite Radio is included in the MBUX system, which is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The heavy tint on the wide side windows keeps the sun out and the occupants comfortable. Passengers will be toasty warm in the winter and cool in the summer thanks to the top-mounted A/C unit. The black leatherette chairs are quite comfy and should suffice for shorter excursions. The leatherette seats should be simple to clean if spills occur.
Sprinter Van are an ideal investment.
Commercial and industrial applications are suited for the Sprinter Passenger Van. Many of these Mercedes-Benz vans transport passengers to and from Denver International Airport and ski resorts throughout the winter. The diesel engine and four-wheel drive are the ideal additions, given where this automotive journalist lives. It’s worthwhile to spend the extra money on these enhancements if you can afford it.
