The new Sprinter will offer the most advanced connectivity solution ever fitted to a van. Mercedes PRO connect will launch in June 2018 with the arrival of the first new Sprinter models. 18 Services will be available at launch and will offer innovative and class-leading services. The Communication Module, offered as standard, has an in-built LTE SIM-card which offers rapid data transmission between vans, drivers and vehicle managers. Technical highlights include Eco Monitoring – which allows real-time fuel consumption data to be reviewed.
Theft Management monitors the alarm^ and pre-defined geofences to warn against possible thefts. Real time and historic location coordinates can be reviewed and several service and maintenance parameters can be monitored to prevent downtime. Also debuting in the new Sprinter is MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience, technology carried over from the passenger car range, is fitted as standard in conjunction with a 7-inch touch screen; with steering wheel touch pads, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, USB-in, Media Interface and finally DAB radio for the first time in a Sprinter.
An MBUX head unit with a 10.2-inch touch screen is also available. All MBUX headunits are available with an optional integrated Navigation System with Live Traffic and a range of Mercedes PRO Headunit functions.
The new Sprinter redefines safety. Again. With Active Brake Assist, the new Sprinter can brake autonomously to help prevent rear-end collisions and collisions with pedestrians. The Sprinter is the only van available on the market with Active Brake Assist with pedestrian protection included, underlining Mercedes-Benz’ commitment to the safety of drivers and other road users alike. Like the Vito, the new Sprinter will also be fitted with ATTENTION ASSIST drowsiness detection, to prevent fatigue and encourage drivers to drive responsibly with breaks when they get tired. The Mercedes-Benz Emergency Call system can summon rescue services in the event of an accident whilst Rear Cross Traffic and Exit Alert monitors the rear of the vehicle, and can autonomously brake in the event of an impending collision. In the event of an accident, Sprinter automatically applies its brakes to prevent secondary collisions.
