Car reviews - Mercedes-Benz - Sprinter - range


There's a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter for virtually every workplace application

12 Oct 2006

MERCEDES-Benz has gone all-out with its new Sprinter range to set a new benchmark in the light commercial category. Three four-cylinder engines with power outputs ranging from 65 to 110kW and a new, 135kW turbo-diesel V6 provide plenty of application opportunities. And - a big bonus in this category – there’s the choice between a six-speed manual and a five-speed automatic transmission. Cabin comfort is in keeping with three-pointed star expectations, as are 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.

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter LCV

Released: January 1995
Ended: October 2006
Family Tree: Sprinter

The Sprinter range was launched in 1995 in the 308D and 412D range of cab-chassis and vans in both short and long-wheelbase variants. Progressively engines were upgraded. In 2001, the Sprinter cab-chassis gained a 2.2-litre diesel for the 308CDi with an output of 60kW/200Nm. By 2002 demand for the smallest Sprinter allowed Mercedes-Benz to add this 2.2-litre CDi engine to the 208CDi. By mid-2003 the Sprinter diesel received a facelift and a much-needed lift in performance, with a five-cylinder turbo-diesel that developed 115kW/330Nm, which was initially restricted to the emergency services sector. In 2004 the Sprinter gained the option of a six-speed automated manual called "Sprintshift".
