All-new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter offers progressive design and comfort

Nasser Bin Khaled (NBK) Automobiles, authorised general distributor of Mercedes-Benz in Qatar, presents the all-new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter in the country. 

The new Sprinter, available now at the Mercedes-Benz showroom on Salwa Road, elevates the benchmark for the large van segment, offering an innovative and diverse range of product features that serves specific market needs more effectively than ever before. Through its technology and intelligence, it offers every customer a model tailored precisely to his or her needs.

The 2019 Sprinter transitions from a commercial vehicle with pure utility value to an impressive business car for commercial fleets and businesses. It pioneers the new design idiom of Mercedes-Benz Vans and embodies the inherent emotional appeal and intelligence.

The Sprinter has different priorities dependent on the customers’ needs and requirements. Ranging from the basic specification variant for customers who value proven Sprinter attributes such as standard-fit electronic stability programme (ESP) and standard safety equipment like Crosswind Assist, through to the highest specification model where high-resolution touchscreens and high-quality materials determine the visual impression and ambience. 

The stowage compartment concept exemplifies the adaptability of the interior. A choice of open or closed compartments, and a lockable compartment within the roof liner in the cockpit area, enable the configuration to be tailored precisely to the given requirements for the workplace behind the wheel. 

The desire for multiple individualisation options is continued in the temperature regulation, with a new advanced air conditioning system ideal for the Mena region. The powerful one-zone automatic climate control system, Thermotronic automatically regulates the fan, air distribution and temperature to the comfort level of a passenger car. 

The new Sprinter is completely dedicated to safety: supporting Mercedes-Benz Vans’ role as a driver of innovation and a pioneer in the introduction of modern safety technologies in the large van segment. 

With the presentation of the new Sprinter, a whole range of optional safety and assistance systems is now available from Mercedes-Benz Vans that were previously maintained within the passenger car series. These include the radar-based distance control system Distronic, Active Brake Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist. 

The Sprinter comes also with standard-fit Crosswind Assist, Active Brake Assist and Lane Keeping Assist. Three camera solutions, from the reversing camera with rear view mirror display to the 360 degrees camera, are optionally available to further enhance the good overall view from the cockpit. 

The optionally available LED high performance headlamps provide for optimum illumination of the carriageway in dark.  Standard fit airbag can help the driver in a collision.  An additional five airbags are optionally available for driver and co-driver. 

The four-cylinder diesel engine, available with Euro V emission standards and suitable for Qatar fuel characteristics, has a displacement of 2.1 litres with rear-wheel drive generating with 120kW (163hp). 

The 7G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission is also available for the Sprinter for the first time combining exceptionally smooth gearshifts with exemplary fuel efficiency and relieves the driver of manual gear-changing with keyless start as an option.  

The seven close-ratio gears keep the engine speed as low as possible in every driving situation. This has a positive effect on the fuel consumption and improves noise reduction. The transmission operated via the gear shift paddles behind the steering wheel spokes allow shifting gears manually as well.   

The infotainment system is just one example of the completely new control and display logic in the cockpit. As it is already familiar from the passenger car model series, the instrument cluster with a large display consolidates all the control lamps between the speedometer and rev counter.
