25 years of the Sprinter: the van which defines standards.
Tools, gadgets, building materials, accessories – the Sprinter has already carried just about anything. Setting and delivering trends instead of following them.
Timelessly through change.
The birth of the legend.
In order to set itself apart as the successor to the "Bremer" van which was the backbone of many tradespeople, entrepreneurs and delivery companies, the Sprinter had to make a clear mark back in 1995. Of course it was already able to score some points with the design, which was unusual for the time. But what also distinguished the Sprinter from the outset was its versatility: whether longer, shorter, stronger, lighter, whether with a platform, load compartment or several rows of seats, the Sprinter's success story is based to a large extent on its great flexibility.
Making good better.
In 2006 the time had come and the successful first generation had diligently done its service for eleven years. With the second generation, the visual progress couldn't be ignored – the striking design had been overhauled and thus continued to set trends. Plus, there were numerous technical innovations: an extra-wide sliding load compartment door, an improved braking system, ADAPTIVE ESP, bi-xenon headlights with static cornering light and active curve illumination were just some of the new features that, along with a completely revised range of engines, were intended to underpin the Sprinter's benchmark position.
All good things come in threes.
A successful debut.
Still found on the roads today: the first-generation Sprinter.
The replacement after eleven years.
Advanced technology and a wide range of variants: the second generation seamlessly continued the success of its predecessor.
Today's exclamation mark.
The third-generation Sprinter sets standards in terms of design and connectivity.
