2020 Mercedes Sprinter Van Price

2020 Mercedes Sprinter Van Price

For Mercedes, the third generation of Sprinter marks a turning point. The new 2020 Mercedes Sprinter van is indeed now available in traction and gives pride of place to new technologies. A risky but controlled offensive because the manufacturer of the star renews at the same time proven solutions.

2020 Mercedes Sprinter Redesign and Changes

In Mercedes France, the marketing in the next month of June 2018 is experienced as a relief. The sellers present in the network have indeed struggled to stem the decline in sales of the Sprinter following the announcement of its renewal. In 2017, the German van registered only 10 159 registrations, a decrease of 2.2% in France. Previous years had on average a volume closer to 12,000 copies. The star brand has therefore refined this third generation to attract new customers with touches of modernity beneficial while trying to retain professionals already conquered by known and effective recipes.

The range always offers very multiple versions. The Sprinter is available with several engines, three boxes (one manual, two automatic 7 or 9 reports) and especially three transmissions. Alongside the traditional propulsion and 4×4, Mercedes inaugurates a declination traction. Thanks to this innovation, the Sprinter can offer an increased payload of 50 kg and a lowered loading threshold of 80 mm compared to the propulsion. In the engine, the chapter is Diesel V6 190 hp for the model and 4 cylinders developing 114, 143 and 163 hp (177 hp in traction).

Regarding the utility versions, the van is marketed with formats ranging from L1H1 to L4H3. The single or double cab, deck, and passenger transport versions are also renewed. For fans of the genre, Mercedes has also planned a motorhome body.

Finally, on the utility side, the Sprinter remains within the average of the category with a loading space of between 3.980 m² and 7.606 m², a loading capacity ranging from 7.8 m3 to 17 m3, a maximum loading length of 2732 mm to 4810 mm, a maximum width of the load compartment of 1787 mm, a loading height of 1719 mm to 2243 mm, a maximum payload of up to 3000 kg (on the 5.5 tonne variant) and the possibility of carry up to 7 Europe pallets. In the catalog, 1,700 versions can be configured.

2020 Mercedes Sprinter Test Drive

The discovery of the Sprinter is positive. The cabin offers ergonomics well thought with a multifunction steering wheel without too many buttons and therefore quite practical. Similarly, the engineers have incorporated plenty of storage for bottles, phones, files, etc. Three compartments, a little too deep, are also located above the dashboard.

Note that they have a non-slip mat that avoids seeing, for example, his pens scatter in the cockpit at the first corner came. On our test model, a nasturtium split into two further optimized storage possibilities.

The presentation is very correct but the overall design, with this screen 10.25 inches above the center console, leaves doubt. Like the S-Class sedan, Mercedes wanted to upgrade its Sprinter. At the time of the design in the laboratory, this project could prove judicious. Nevertheless, beyond aesthetics, a question arises. How will this equipment age with professionals regularly facing rougher conditions (dirt, mud, dust, etc.) than the muffled environment of the big discount?

The finish, finally, despite some assemblages perfectibles surely consecutive to the fact that we tested models of pre-production, is of good quality. Small significant detail of the care brought, Mercedes installed a small pad on the armrest of the door very nice. However, this nice example of attention is not found everywhere. After several kilometers, the third-generation Sprinter brings some unusual inconvenience from Mercedes.

Thus, the attention paid to the soundproofing is behind the other models of the brand. Aerodynamic noise generates a fairly high noise level and the engine is heard perfectly. Our L2H2 test model, powered by the 114-hp 4-cylinder engine coupled with a 6-speed manual transmission, did not like the rushes. The best is, therefore, to take advantage of its flexibility at low speed or stall at a speed not too excessive on the highway. Regarding depreciation, the engineers explained that they had relaxed the settings compared to the older generation. Our test track could only confirm what he said, but the fact is that the new 2020 Mercedes Sprinter has become a bit too soft.

New Mercedes Sprinter Equipment

The organization of the range has not yet been unveiled at the level of finishes. As a result, tariffs are just as secret. On the other hand, Mercedes insisted on the driving aids that the sprinter will benefit from. The van will be able to receive an optional or serial crossing alert (Active Lane keeping assist), a parking assistance equipped with front and rear radars and, above all, a back-up camera with a 360 degree vision, braking (Active Brake Assist), the trajectory control during lateral wind gusts (Crosswind assist), a driver fatigue detection system (Attention assist), a parking exit assistance with automatic braking in case of Detection of traffic or pedestrians (Parking Assist) or even an adaptive speed controller.

For everyday equipment, Mercedes has only indicated that the medium-range finish, which is the bulk of sales, will mainly have a height and depth steering wheel adjustment, a multi-function steering wheel, an audio system with Remote control, USB and 12v sockets, power windows, Central locking, etc.

New technologies for two users

With its new sprinter, Mercedes is aiming for a “premium” keen technology clientele and companies with fleet managers. Two systems have indeed been established. The first, named Mercedes Pro Connect, offers several integrated services within a platform that enable professionals to benefit from specific financings, from individual mobility solutions such as geolocation, information Conduct of drivers, the forecasting of interviews, etc. In practice, a beautiful gas plant that does not concern the artisan mono-possessor.

Also to settle the latter, the German manufacturer has concocted the MBUX (Mercedes Benz User Experience) with a voice control. This system of info-entertainment running on a Linux software makes the sprinter move into a new technological world and demonstrates the competence of the Germanic engineers. On the other hand, for the daily life of a professional, the relevance of the MBUX questions. To activate it, occupants must call it by its small name “Mercedes” before requesting any information. Example: “Mercedes? Yes, what can I do for you? I want to eat ‘ and a list of addresses of nearby restaurants appears on the screen. Practical but calling all day long Mercedes, to have some information, can become tiresome especially as the engineers told us that it was impossible to change the surname. Other limit of the system, if during a conversation, the word Mercedes is pronounced, MBUX will “take” the word and therefore will activate to know what to do! In short, this intelligent system reveals certain limits and is intrusive.
