25 years of Sprinter: the van that defines standards.
Tools, gadgets, building material, accessories – the Sprinter has brought along almost everything. A story of setting and delivering trends, not following them.
Timeless through change.
The birth of a legend.
In order to emerge as the sequel to the "Bremen Transporter" that had become the backbone for many craftsmen, entrepreneurs and carriers, the Sprinter had to send a clear message in 1995. Of course, it was able to score points with its design, which was unusually modern for those times. What also distinguished the Sprinter from the beginning was its versatility: whether longer, shorter, stronger, lighter, whether with a flatbed, a cargo area or several rows of seats, the Sprinter's success story is largely based on its flexibility.
Good becomes better.
In 2006, the time had come and the successful first generation had done its service after eleven years. With the second generation, the visual enhancement was conspicuous, the striking design was overhauled and thus remained trendsetting. In addition, there were numerous technical innovations: an extra-wide sliding load compartment door, an improved braking system, ADAPTIVE ESP, bi-xenon headlights with static cornering and bend lighting were just a few of the innovations that, along with a completely redesigned engine range, were intended to underline the Sprinter's benchmark position.
The best things come in threes.
Still to be encountered on the roads today: the first-generation Sprinter.
The replacement after eleven years.
Advanced technology and a large number of variants: the second-generation seamlessly continued the success of its previous model.
The current screamer.
The third-generation Sprinter sets standards in design and connectivity.
