The Mercedes Sprinter van is the commercial vehicle that many owners/operators of large vans aspire to as the Sprinter has set the benchmark for quality built vans since back in 95. But do they really live up to their reputation? The short answer is yes, however with new vans such as the New Ford Transit hot on their heels, the gap is certainly closing.
The Sprinter range is an extensive one with four vehicle lengths and three roof heights to choose from with cargo volumes from 7.5m3 of up to 17 m3 and load length stretching to 4.8m on the biggest of them.

They are all still powered mainly by the Euro-5 2.2 litre CDi engine in 95ps and 130ps or the 3.0 litre 190ps with fuel economy ranging from around 28-38mpg across the range and service intervals now a huge 37,000 miles meaning less time spent off the road and lower running costs.
Safety has featured high on the list with the New Sprinter boasting ‘first van to be equipped as standard with Crosswind Assist’ on many models and other optional safety packages such as Driving Assistance Package which includes Collision Prevention Assist.
The new design of the interior looks and feels as you would expect from a Merc. It is well designed and well put together using quality materials and is a definite improvement on the older interior which just felt functional. Still a class act but not streaks ahead of some its competitors any more. Not a particularly cheap van (even at our prices) although lifetime running costs are excellent.
We can "totally" recommend the service received from Paul and Totally Vans.
In addition to the final price being extremely competitive, the entire process was absolutely painless. So much so, made me question why previous vehicle purchases were so laborious!Michael, Claire, Adam and Albi – Commercial Catering Contracts LTD.
I am always a little apprehensive when buying a new vehicle. What is the best model for my needs?, Which is the most appropriate funding solution? Am I getting a good deal? etc. Totally Vans gave me all of the facts and enabled me to make an informed and confident decision. Antony Cockerell - AR18
