Mercedes Sprinter is For Big Families


Visitors: 320

Minivans, SUV's, and the glut of other vehicles marketed towards families all have one thing in common: they're big on the outside, cramped on the inside. Not only that, but they aren't practical for longer trips that involve packing luggage for yourself and all of your kids. They may be adequate for the average nuclear family, but if you've got the makings of a small soccer team living under one roof, you might need an upgrade.

Say hello to the Mercedes Sprinter, Chrysler's response to the sea of awkward and unattractive vans that have flooded the sales floors. The passenger version of the Sprinter is stylish and sleek with tinted rear windows and a graceful sloping front end. Packed with unique standard features, multiple customization options, and tons of available add-ons, the Mercedes Sprinter is taking the family van to the next level.

The highlight of the Mercedes Sprinter is easily its spacious interior. It has ten full-sized, removable seats and with your choice of body lengths (233 or 273 inches) and roof heights (standard or high). If that isn't enough room for your family, you probably need to pack less or buy a bus.

The other perks about the Mercedes Sprinter is that you can easily tailor it to suit your family's needs. Its towing capacity (between 5,000 and 7,500 lbs) and cargo area make it an ideal van for long road trips. With a 3.0-liter turbo diesel V6 with 154 horsepower (optional 3.5-liter gasoline V6 also available), the Mercedes Sprinter gets better gas mileage and fuel economy than many smaller vans, so those long drives will be easy on the wallet.

The Mercedes Sprinter can also be converted into a comfortable camper. Its durable flooring and seating flexibility make it simple to transform it from van to home on wheels. Many Sprinter owners have had great success in adding beds, mini fridges, and other amenities to their van.

Other features that make the Sprinter such an appealing family van is a choice of two wheelbases, either 144 or 170 inches, five-speed automatic transmission, stability control, standard climate control, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, antilock brakes, and an emergency window. If you want to customize your van even further, Chrysler has many available extras such as rear parking assist, sun roof, and heated seats.

There is no doubt that the Sprinter is a big vehicle. Its width may appear imposing, but it is a surprisingly agile and graceful drive. A popular van in Europe for many years, the Sprinter was engineered to navigate the narrow streets and tight turns common in other countries.

Although you may have seen Sprinters being used as cargo, delivery, or shuttle vans, the passenger version is a great option for those looking for a comfortable and attractive family vehicle. Chrysler has adapted it to suit a suburban lifestyle while maintaining a reasonable price. If you and your family are in the market for a cushy ride with room to spare, the Mercedes Sprinter is the van for you.

If you have a big family and often take them for some outing, then Mercedes Sprinter is the best option for you. It has all facilities to make your drive comfortable and smooth. Space, speed and fuel economy makes it suitable for your family. For details, visit .
