2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger Van Review: A Premium People Mover

Many picture luxury sedans and sports cars when they think of Mercedes-Benz, but the German automaker has been active in the commercial segment for over a century now. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger Van is the latest in a long line of people movers, designed specifically to transport passengers capably and in comfort. It is particularly popular in the tourism industry, but wherever there are logistics challenges to be overcome, the Sprinter will be there. A choice of three engines is provided, with the strongest being a 188-horsepower diesel V6. That may not sound like much, but it's more than enough to supply smooth performance around town. Of course, it's a premium vehicle range, since those of the types of cars Mercedes excels are producing. But is an upmarket and featureful cabin worth the price tag when the Ford Transit and GMC Savana can move people just as well, if not in quite as much luxury?

Verdict: Is the 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger Van A Good Minivan?

The boxes a passenger van needs to tick are not the same as in every other automotive segment. However, the Merc Sprinter tries to go above and beyond that. It doesn't just supply loads of room for people and their stuff. There are also a lot more comfort and convenience features that most other automakers feel are unnecessary to such utilitarian vehicles. The fact that it's also quite good-looking, for a van, is just a cherry on top.

While there are no safety rating reviews of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger Van, there are more standard and optional advanced driver assists than you'll find in most other vans. The German automaker also has an excellent reputation for reliability. Now in its third generation, the Sprinter is refined to the point where it can easily go toe-to-toe with the best vans in the USA. It's more expensive, yes, but well worth the price.

What Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger Van Model Should I Buy?

There is no need to go for the base-engine model anymore, thanks to the new turbodiesel four-pot. This delivers the same level of performance with improved fuel economy. The V6 is stronger still, but not really necessary for this type of vehicle. However, it is essential if you want the four-wheel drive train. Aside from this, you'll need to consider just how much space you actually need. The 4-door Sprinter is presented in standard or extended length, as well as with a standard or high roof. This lets you configure it for between 12-15 seats. The price of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger Van starts at $43,120 but options catapult this up quickly.
