Mercedes Sprinter van

The Mercedes Sprinter van has been a huge part of the large van market for nearly 25 years and the latest model introduced in 2018 by Mercedes vans has made it better than ever before. The Sprinter van has been dubbed the most intelligently connected van the world has ever seen for its range of telematics and van fleet management software.

Despite its huge size and stature, the Mercedes Sprinter van is still incredibly comfortable and easy to drive, with a car-like feel behind the wheel and capability of carrying the heaviest of loads. The Mercedes Sprinter offers everything you could possibly want from a large van, with payloads comfortably in excess of one-tonne to boot, with the option of front-wheel drive alongside traditional rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive models.

Behind the wheel arches, the load compartment measures 1.7-metres wide, with a maximum floor length of 4.8 metres, whilst road handling sets the bar in the large van segment, meaning even the least experienced of van drivers can feel at ease behind the wheel of the Mercedes Sprinter.
