The new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is officially launched on February 6, 2020 and is ready to enter the world market of commercial vehicles. The new 3-generation Mercedes-Benz Sprinter was developed independently by Mercedes , in contrast to its predecessor, created in cooperation with Volkswagen . In our review, the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2019-2020 – photos and videos, the price and configuration, technical specifications of the German truck, offered already in 1700! various configurations. Sales of the new generation Mercedes-Benz Sprinter in Europe and Russia will start in early summer of 2020 at a price in Germany from 23788 euros, but for German business customers the cost of the new product will be from 19,990 euros at the expense of 19% VAT.
The new Sprinter was developed by Mercedes-Benz almost from scratch with the use of a huge amount of modern technology, as well as the adVANce concept with Mercedes PRO technology, which allows tracking commercial vehicles for more productive use and delivery of goods to consumers in a short time.
The previous two generations of the Sprinter model during the release from 1995 to early 2020 sold around the world with a total circulation of more than 3.4 million copies. The car is so popular that it is perceived by motorists as if it were a regular car, and is often used as the main one.
I would like to note that, in comparison with the predecessor, the appearance of the new Sprinter has changed minimally, and more correctly, it has evolved. Designers awarded the front of the body of the novelty with a larger falshradiator grille and compact narrowed headlights (optional, full-LED head optics).
The lateral and rear parts of the body remained practically unchanged, if you do not take into account enlarged plafonds of side lights with partial LED filling and strict panels of rear swing doors without punching.
The new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is offered with a choice of three wheelbase sizes from 3250 to 4325 mm, 4 variants of overall overall length, the ability to choose the height of a passenger car, several types of body (van and van, minivan and camper, pickup and chassis for installation of all kinds equipment, as well as cargo and passenger versions), front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive, as well as all-wheel drive transmission, 114 to 190 diesel turbo diesel engines, 6 gearboxes, 9-speed automatic 9G-Tronic and 7 automatic for Vers first cars with all-wheel drive. Add as a bonus the opportunity to order the floor of a cargo platform made of wood, plastic or steel.
The new Mercedes Sprinter is able to provide transportation of cargo up to 17 m3, passenger capacity up to 20 people, and the total weight reaches 5500 kg (minimum 2500 kg).
The cab of the new generation Sprinter was created taking into account the higher requirements of the customers in terms of comfort and ergonomics. However, the interior of the basic versions of the German truck looks quite simple and, to put it mildly, budgetly: a simple steering wheel, a front panel of rough gray plastic with large ventilation deflectors and a huge box for storing small items, an open shelf under the ceiling. But the usual joys in the form of an audio system and air conditioning are absent.
The next level of equipment implies the presence of a simple audio system, a more solid steering wheel with buttons for controlling the on-board computer, additional venting vents in the center of the front panel and a shelf under the ceiling equipped with covers.
Such stingy equipment is not surprising for the simple reason that we have a car cab for commercial transportation, but … The Sprinter can be not only a truck or a van, but a super comfortable passenger minibus capable of carrying up to 20 people. For such versions of the novelty, not only a full-function multifunction steering wheel, a dashboard with a color screen of the on-board computer, a driver’s seat with electric adjustment, front heated seats, but also two or three zone climate control, MBUX multimedia systems with 7.0 or 12, 25-inch color touch screens (the same are installed in the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class (W177) ). If you want, you can order a rear-view camera for the new German bead with a demonstration picture in the salon mirror, a circular vision system and adaptive cruise control.
