As a chassis or closed vehicle, the Sprinter serves as the basis for numerous mobile homes. With its five new safety systems, the Sprinter has risen to a completely new level of safety technology in the van segment.

The Crosswind Assist is fitted as standard equipment in most model variants. Its sensors measure the force of the gusts of wind that come from the side. The system then counteracts these forces, leading to a significant reduction in driver stress. Drivers feel safer and more comfortable as a result, and they do not overreact to gusts of wind.Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2014. Panel van.

The other four safety innovations for the new Sprinter are optional: Lane Keeping Assist, Blind Spot Assist, High Beam Assist, and COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST. The last of these alerts the driver if he or she is too close to another vehicle or an obstacle.Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2014. Flatbed.
