Eurotransport.de was on the road with the Mercedes Sprinter Kombi, which has 190 hp, a medium wheelbase, high roof and space for up to nine people.
In Germany, the Mercedes Sprinter is the number one; in Europe, it plays a prominent role. Along with the Iveco Daily, VW Crafter, Fiat Ducato, Ford Transit and suchlike, the Mercedes plays a key role on the market. Especially the Kombi version proves to be an all-round talent with two roof heights and three wheelbases. Whether as a shuttle bus, transporter for work teams and travel companies during the week or as a leisure vehicle for big families on the weekend.
The V6 diesel engine with three liters displacement delivers 190 hp, already developing a maximum torque of 440 Nm from 1,400 rpm. Its spontaneous response characteristics even at low revs are convincing, and it quickly accelerates the vehicle (with an unladen weight of 2,580 kg after all) over the entire rev range in spite of the high-ratio rear axle. The emission control equipment ensuring the Sprinter's compliance with the Euro 6 emission standard is surely partly responsible for the higher unladen weight. This subdued engine with balance shafts is more than powerful enough for the Mercedes.
