With the new generation of this iconic van, Mercedes-Benz underscores its role as a pioneer, driving innovation with the introduction of modern safety technologies in the large van segment.

Further underscoring this, the new Sprinter is equipped with a range of optional safety and assistance systems which, until recently, were reserved exclusively for Mercedes-Benz passenger cars.
