4 Reviews that Showcase the Benefits of Mercedes Sprinter Cargo Vans
Are you in the market for a best-in-class cargo vehicle that can help you or your business effectively transport large amounts of materials or equipment? If so, the Mercedes Sprinter Cargo Van may be the perfect fit for your needs. Its ample space, combined with superior comfort and a high-quality engine, make it great value for anyone in the market for a transport vehicle.
But don’t just take our word for it. Over the years, Mercedes’ standout cargo van has been reviewed by a number of publications for its quality, comfort, and safety. Here’s what they had to say:
Car and Driver
The popular and prestigious magazine loved the vehicle so much, it gave it not only a 4.5/5 star review but also named it to its top 2016 Editor’s Choice picks. According to the reviewer,
Mercedes-Benz continues to be ahead of its time by combining design, productivity, and safety in one innovative package with the Sprinter line of commercial vans.
In an an earlier review, Car and Driver acknowledges the fact that the Sprinter is much more common in Europe than the United States, but questions why. After all, this is a high-powered vehicle with enough prestige to “bring the Sprinter to the forefront of commercial buyers’ minds.”
In reviewing the 4×4 version of the Cargo Van, this magazine cautions that not everyone may need as powerful of a vehicle. Step back to appreciate this fact: the reviewer is actually wondering whether the Sprinter 4×4 is too good for personal use.
Other than that hugged, the review is overwhelmingly positive. Autoweek is particularly impressed with the safety features:
When it came to testing Sprinter’s Crosswind Assist system, Mercedes wasn’t taking chances with the weather: The company arranged for a trio of 600-hp airboats to blast the van with a 90-mph wind as it passed by at 45 mph. As is often the case with stability controls, the most dramatic evidence of the system’s effectiveness was its lack of drama; from inside the van, a slight wiggle and a few pulses from the ABS system were the only indication we’d encountered anything out of the ordinary.
In addition to the above-mentioned benefits of the Sprinter Cargo Van, this car publication specifically points out the vehicle’s high resale value. In fact, Motor Trend points out, the Sprinter was awarded ALG’s Residual Value Award for full-size commercial vans in 2015, suggesting its price efficiency over time.
Other positive trends, according to Motor Trend, are high-quality diesel engines along with low ownership costs and the above-mentioned four-wheel drive capability. In short, it’s a quality vehicle both as you purchase it and over time, making it a sound investment for your business.
New York Daily News
In two separate headlines, New York Daily News calls the Mercedes Benz Sprinter the King of Vans and the Ultimate Rugged Workhorse. Both is high praise, and both is backed up by a comprehensive review in the publication’s auto section. Here’s our favorite part of the review:
The absolute best part about driving a Sprinter, if you haven’t figured it out already, is that apart from its massive capacity for stowage and hauling, this van’s driving dynamics completely belie its size and center of gravity. Thankfully, the driving position in a Sprinter is more like a passenger car’s than that of a rent-and-move box truck. It’s maneuverable in the tight confines of a city, where other large vans would feel portly and ponderous.
Don’t just believe us when we praise the comfort, capabilities, and functionality of the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van. Plenty of independent reviews have come to the same conclusion, considering it a leader in the full-size commercial van category.
