The Mercedes Sprinter is a large van with a big heart. When the second generation version was launched in 2006, that heart meant a class-leadingly efficient range of diesel engines that really took the fight to large van rivals. These refined units offered potentially large efficiency savings to businesses who appreciated this model's spacious, practical, high quality virtues. It ought to stack up well as a used buy too. Does it? Let's find out.
Despite its European success, this Sprinter still isn't one of the first vans that many British business think of when they're looking for a really large used LCV. Yet perhaps it should be. It's as big and practical as any of its rivals, with a more refined powertrain. Plus, crucially, if you get a model that was originally specified correctly, you'll be buying into a set of running cost figures that can't be bettered in this segment.
Yes of course there are cheaper rivals. Some of them feel a little more avant garde too and have cleverer cabs. But when it comes to the things that actually matter when it comes to running a vehicle of this kind, the Sprinter ticks most of the important boxes with the kind of thoroughness that you'd expect from something bearing the famous Three Pointed Star on its grille. All of which means that whatever your business, this could be your righthand van.
