The new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van – which arrives here next Autumn – is the first to meet future Euro VI emissions standards in all its engine variants, according to the German manufacturer.

Long regarded as the workhorse of the Mercedes-Benz light commercial vehicles fleet, the new Sprinter will arrive here enhanced by a substantial number of external and internal design changes.

Outside, its most striking features include a new front end appearance set off by a new, more prominent radiator grille and angular headlights. Redesigned double-segment taillights are the most prominent rear end feature.

Inside, notable improvements include new upholstery, a thicker steering wheel, redesigned gear lever and a new-generation radio system with state-of-the-art electronic entertainment features, Bluetooth and navigation system.

Despite meeting strict Euro VI emissions standards, the performance of the Sprinter’s diesel engines will remain unchanged, with four and six-cylinder units producing outputs ranging from 95 to 190 bhp.

As an alternative to its diesel engines, it will be available also with a Euro VI supercharged 1.8-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine as well as a natural gas powered variant for those who require it, both producing 156bhp.

Power is transmitted either by the ECO-Gear 6-speed manual transmission or by 7G-TRONIC PLUS seven-speed automatic transmission with lock-up clutch – another world first for vans. It comes fitted with five new safety assistance features designed to prevent accidents from occurring.
