Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Enhanced By Hartmann

Although the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is not the typical vehicle tuning specialists normally enhance, it did not prevent Hartmann from providing the utilitarian vehicle with its own tuning package, as indicated on a recent report from worldcarfans.com.

Brabus Turns a Mercedes Sprinter Van Into a Business Lounge

The Mercedes S 65 AMG Coupe and S 600 Guard certainly stole the show at the 2014 Moscow International Auto Salon. In addition to the two, there’s one more vehicle that is worth noting, the Brabus Business Lounge. The vehicle is based on the platform of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van. For the untrained eye, its body would be easily mistaken as the standard Mercedes Sprinter van. However, some giveaways which would reveal that it has been tuned are its 18-inch Monoblock weels, LED daytime running lights, twin-exhaust systems, and face-lifted front bumper. Inside the Brabus-tuned Mercedes Sprinter van is the fun really starts. The tuning firm has added four leather-trimmed executive seats in its cabin. The seats were… Continue Reading »

Airstream Converts a Sprinter Interior Into an Ultra Luxurious Cabin

Airstream recently launched its new project called the Autobahn. Basically, the Autobahn is an enhanced version of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van. It features a redesigned interior, which further improves its productivity and comfort features. The Autobahn is the newest addition to the Interstate Series in Airstream’s “touring coaches” range. However, the Autobahn lacks the camper characteristics of the Interstate. Thus, the newly-configured Sprinter of Airstream does not come with live-in amenities. The Autobahn’s style has a minimalist design, but it does provide better and safer seating arrangement. Overall, it has six reclining seats in its cabin for its passengers plus the driver and the passenger’s seat in front. In addition to the extra space,… Continue Reading »

How Mercedes-Benz’s high-end status affects sales of Sprinter vans in the US

Mercedes-Benz is a well-known luxury brand, and while the established brand name–as well as all the other stuff that comes with it–works well for marketing its passenger vehicles, it could sometimes present a problem for other areas of the automaker’s business. Take the Sprinter van, for example. The Sprinter is one of the best-selling commercial vehicles from Mercedes-Benz, and it is seen as the go-to model for growing the commercial vehicles aspect of the company’s business in markets outside Germany and Europe. In the United States, though, sales are hampered by the brand’s high-end reputation. While Mercedes-Benz has been keen on introducing more affordable compact variants of its cars, like… Continue Reading »
