Mercedes-Benz has introduced its new Sprinter van on the Irish market. Equipped with a number of standard and optional safety features that are appearing in this category of vehicle for the first time.
Making its world premiere in any commercial vehicle and available as standard, is Crosswind Assist. This important new safety element kicks in automatically to help keep the van on course in strong gusting winds.
Two other ‘world first’ safety elements making their debut in the new Sprinter and available as optional extras are Collision Prevention Assist which sounds an alert if the van comes too close to moving traffic ahead and Blind Spot Assist which alerts the driver to the presence of other vehicles when changing lane.
Also new are Lane Keeping Assist which warns the driver if the vehicle drifts off course and High Beam Assist which provides optimal illumination of the road ahead.
