Nasser Bin Khaled (NBK) Automobiles, the authorised distributor of Mercedes-Benz in Qatar, has presented the all-new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter in Qatar.
The all-new Sprinter is available now at the Mercedes-Benz showroom on Salwa Road.
“The new Sprinter elevates the benchmark for the large van segment, offering an innovative and diverse range of product features that serves specific market needs more effectively than ever before. Through its technology and intelligence, the new Sprinter offers every customer a model tailored precisely to his or her needs,” NBK Automobiles has said in a statement.
The 2019 Sprinter “transitions from a commercial vehicle with pure utility value to an impressive business card for commercial fleets and businesses”. It pioneers the new design idiom of Mercedes-Benz Vans and embodies the inherent emotional appeal and intelligence.
The Sprinter has different priorities dependent on the customers’ needs and requirements.
Ranging from the basic specification variant for customers who value proven Sprinter attributes such as standard-fit electronic stability programme and standard safety equipment like Crosswind Assist, through to the highest specification model where high-resolution touchscreens and high-quality materials determine the visual impression and ambiance.
The stowage compartment concept exemplifies the adaptability of the interior. A choice of open or closed compartments and a lockable compartment within the roof liner in the cockpit area, enable the configuration to be tailored precisely to the given requirements for the workplace
behind the wheel.
The desire for multiple individualisation options is continued in the temperature regulation, with a new advanced air-conditioning system ideal for the Mena region.
Found in a separate control panel below the display for the telematic system, the modular construction of the ventilation system allows both the integration of a standard heating system and the use of a roof-mounted air-conditioning system with a separate cooling circuit. The high-performance overhead air-conditioning system supplements the air-conditioning at the front to up to 7kW with an additional 11kW of rear cooling output, both running on independent circuits, to reach a possible combined total of 18kW to deliver the ultimate in climate comfort in the passenger
The powerful one-zone automatic climate control system Thermotronic automatically regulates the fan, air distribution and temperature to the
comfort level of a passenger car.
With the presentation of the new Sprinter, a whole range of optional safety and assistance systems is now available from Mercedes-Benz Vans that were previously maintained within the passenger car series. These include the radar-based distance control system Distronic, Active Brake Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist.
The Sprinter also comes with standard-fit Crosswind Assist, Active Brake Assist and Lane Keeping Assist. Three camera solutions, from the reversing camera with rear-view mirror display to the 360 degrees camera, are optionally available to further enhance the good overall view from the cockpit. Standard fit airbag can help the driver in a collision. An additional five airbags are optionally available for driver and co-driver.
The exterior of the Sprinter has a new “sensual design without compromising its role to support business needs and requirements”. Vehicles in modern fleets are increasingly being given the role of company representatives, whereby the Mercedes-Benz design strategy, established in the passenger car sector, creates the basis for this.
The Sprinter Tourer can accommodate up to eight people plus the driver. With the longest of the four vehicle lengths and the highest roofs, the Sprinter Panel Van offers a load compartment volume of up to 17cubic metres. When necessary, a trailer load of up to 3,500kg can additionally be attached with a permissible gross combination weight of up to 8,750kg.
With over 600 items of optional equipment, including special fleet and suspension solutions, the sprinter can be adapted precisely to one’s requirements.
The four-cylinder diesel engine, available with Euro V emission standards and suitable for Qatar fuel characteristics, has a displacement of 2.1 litres with rear-wheel drive generating with 120kW (163hp).
The 7G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission is also available for the Sprinter for the first time.
Rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, the new Sprinter covers two drive variants, and can therefore be optimally configured for the relevant transport requirement and operating profile.
The interior also follows the design philosophy of ‘sensual purity’. Characteristic features include the contrast between the gentle, emotional, yet clear lines along the larger surface areas in the cockpit which has also been revamped.
The infotainment system is just one example of the completely new control and display logic in the cockpit. For passenger transport, the new Sprinter is available with different configurations in the passenger compartment and different equipment variants for the seating.
Partnering with Arobus, a renowned bodybuilder solution provider – Mercedes-Benz Vans Mena has converted the Sprinter into a ‘Shuttle’ variant for the Middle East. The Sprinter ‘Shuttle’ lineup comes in three seating configurations from 15 to 22 seats plus the driver.
