Mercedes-Benz freshens its 16-month-old Sprinter van range with more features

13 Mar 2008

COMING only 16 months after the current generation came to Australia, the latest Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van range adds even more features, as well as some new models - including the 311 CDI SWB (short-wheelbase) model that is destined for nationwide use by Australia Post, and a 12-seat Transfer minibus. Joining the line-up from September will be three ‘Super Single’ models that can take Australian standard-size pallets, which are wider than European pallets, without sacrificing payload like most vans. Engine choices are unchanged, with three 2.1-litre turbo-diesels (65kW, 80kW and 110kW) and a 3.0-litre TDI V6 with 135kW. Extra standard equipment includes cruise control with speed-limiter, seatbelt reminder warnings and entry assist handles.
Model release date: 1 March 2008 to 1 February 2010

Previous model


Released: Oct 2006
Ended: Feb 2008
Family Tree: Sprinter

Mercedes-Benz introduced the current Sprintere to Australia in October 2006, powered by three four-cylinder turbo-diesel engines ranging in output from 65 to 110kW plu a new, 135kW turbo-diesel V6. A big bonus in this category was a choice between a six-speed manual and a five-speed automatic transmission. Cabin comfort was in keeping with three-pointed-star expectations, as was the ride and handling of this range of rear-drive workhorses. Sure, the prices are premium, but the all-important life-of-vehicle running costs tend to whittle away at the initial high investment.
