Innovations

Ever since we put the first van on the road in 1896, we've been constantly reinventing it with industry-leading innovations designed to improve efficiency, functionality, safety, and comfort. These are just a few of the leading innovations that go into our work vans.

Efficiency

Powertrain

Your business always looks for ways to improve. That’s why we’re always innovating. With the most advanced powertrain available and extended maintenance intervals, nothing works as efficiently. Lower fuel consumption. Increased service life. And robust flexibility to meet your demands.

The Metris is now equipped with a powerful 9G-TRONIC 9-speed transmission gasoline engine, as well as new maximum payload options. The Sprinter offers both a 9G-TRONIC 9-speed transmission gasoline engine, and a 7G-TRONIC Plus 7-speed automatic transmission diesel engine.

Maintenance Intervals

Whether it’s the full-size Sprinter, or the right-size Metris, every van we make has impressively-high maintenance intervals of up to 2 years or 30,000 km for the Sprinter diesel engine and up to 1 year or 25,000 km for the gasoline engine. The Metris also has an impressive service interval of up to 25,000 km, to keep you on the road, raising productivity and lowering the total cost of ownership.

Driver is responsible for monitoring fluid levels and tire pressure between service visits. See Maintenance Booklet for details.

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)

Ready to carry the weight of your workload – and suit how you work. The Metris now comes with two upgraded options – 2.9t & 3.1t – for the Cargo Van, while the Passenger Van can hold 3.1t. The heavy-hauling Sprinter can load a maximum GVWR of 5.5t, and offers options to accommodate your business needs.

Safety

Active Brake Assist25

Active Brake Assist25 senses the likelihood of a collision with a vehicle ahead and sends both a visual and audible warning followed by initiating autonomous braking.

Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®26

Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®26 senses traffic conditions and actively controls your speed to keep you at a safe distance.

Digital Interior Mirror

For a rear-view vision to help you move forward, look no further. Get greater clarity when manoeuvring spaces with a digital screen to assist reversing. Ideal for jobs that need a partition wall, without compromising your line of sight.

Improved Rear-view Camera27

The Improved Rear-view Camera captures your rear surroundings on the display when reversing or manoeuvring. Three different camera angles will help give your workday a greater outlook.

Active Parking Assist30

Parking that’s smarter than ever. Helps you find a space, automatically steer in and out of them, while alerting you of your surroundings through PARKTRONIC’s sensors and audible warnings.

Crosswind Assist22

Crosswind Assist22 helps stabilize your van and boosts safety in strong, gusting crosswinds. This standard feature helps ensure that your vehicle remains in its lane at highway speeds.

Load-Adaptive Electronic Stability Program (ESP®)4

ESP®4 actively intervenes to help keep the van firmly under control and safe by automatically braking individual wheels and reducing engine power to help stabilize the vehicle if wheelspin, understeer, or oversteer is detected.

Highbeam AssistSM

Highbeam AssistSM adjusts the high and low-beam headlamps automatically, allowing for continuous adaptation to the prevailing traffic situation. The system helps ensure better and earlier recognition of the course of the road.

Blind Spot Assist20

Blind Spot Assist20 now has Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA),24 which employs automatic braking to avoid a collision with traffic crossing the vehicle’s path (e.g., vehicles or pedestrians) when reversing.

ATTENTION ASSIST®23

ATTENTION ASSIST®23 helps prevent drowsy driving by monitoring your driving patterns and providing an early warning in case fatigue is detected.

Active Lane Keeping Assist19

Active Lane Keeping Assist19 can provide you with visual and audible warnings if your van leaves its lane unintentionally. A camera in the windshield monitors the road ahead and helps detect when you may have veered away from lane markings.

360° Camera27

When the Reverse gear is selected, the 360° Camera27 uses four digital cameras to generate various views of the vehicle’s surroundings and show them in real time on the multimedia display.

Functionality

Best-In-Class1 Payload Capacity

Thanks to its sturdy unibody design, and all-steel frame the Sprinter delivers a Best-In-Class1 Payload Capacity of up to 3,370 kg (7,429 lbs). And with up to 1,225 kg (2,701 lbs) of capacity, the Metris allows you to carry more than any compact work van in Canada.

Best-In-Class1 Cargo Capacity

Plastic Floors

Save on weight to prioritize loading capacity. Plastic floors for the Cargo Van can reduce up to 15 kg of weight compared to wooden flooring. Low weight, anti-slip, waterproof and low wear; perfect for keeping your business efficient and safe.

MBUX Telematics System

With its innovative MBUX (MERCEDES-BENZ USER EXPERIENCE) that delivers content from navigation to entertainment and includes optional “Hey Mercedes” voice control and its smartphone integration for Apple CarPlay® and AndroidTM Auto28 with Bluetooth®29 capability, the Sprinter is more than a van — it’s a mobile workspace.

Rear Doors

The rear doors feature new hinges with self-locking mechanisms.

4ETS (Electronic Traction System)

The Sprinter 4x4 features an advanced, electronically engaged 4-wheel drive system that eliminates mechanical 4x4 differential locks and provides increased traction, enhanced directional stability, and road adhesion.
