With the sturdiness of the sprinter chassis combined with the practicality and space benefits of the Luton conversion, this van is a perfect example of versatility. Regarding function and style, you really do get the best of both worlds.
The Mercedes Benz Sprinter Luton at a glance
At a glance, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Luton offers comfort and control with a 2.0-litre diesel engine, manual transmission and modernised cab interior.
These features, combined with the maximised Luton loadspace and a platform tail-lift, make this an incredibly versatile vehicle, particularly for those who are require to move large and, often awkward, items.
Indeed due it’s lorry-like capacity but small vehicle agility, the Luton style van has long been favoured by removal specialists, courier drivers, and small business owners as a practical and versatile form of transportation. What’s more, as each Mercedes-Benz Luton model is converted by their certified bodybuilding partners, each is still fully covered by a 3-year warranty.
Starting from £459 plus VAT when bought on finance at Van Sales UK, the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Luton excels when it comes to driveability, comfort, loading capabilities and overall convenience, making it ideal to suit both your personal and professional needs.
Engines and Spec
If you’re considering the Luton variant of the Sprinter, perhaps for your courier or removals business, it is likely that storage and payload capacity are pretty high up on your list of priorities. The Mercedes Benx Sprinter comes with plenty of practical additions such as ample loadspace, a strengthened phenolic flooring and a 500gk platform tail-lift.
Power is also key for those in the removals industry. And as far as power is concerned, the Sprinter’s 2.0-litre diesel engine speaks for itself. Due to the van’s rear-wheel drive design, the van can move heavy cargo easily and has little trouble pulling away, even at payload capacity. Front-wheel drive version is available, although it should be noted that the RWD remains best-suited for larger loads and heavier journeys.
All newer Sprinter models are fitted with a 6-speed manual gearbox providing fast and responsive driving through urban areas and traffic. However, this plethora of gear choice comes at the cost of fuel economy. Sprinter owners can expect to be averaging around the 30mpg mark.
What kind of interior storage space does the Sprinter Luton have? Well inside the van’s cabin, you’ll find a spacious, sleek and aesthetically appealing interior layout.
The new standard specification leather seats are incredibly comfortable, which is big tick for anyone who spends most of their day driving from one job to another. A state-of-the-art infotainment system, which is controlled by a handy 7-inch touch screen display makes navigation, entertainment, communication and safety easier than ever.
The controls are found in a practical and convenient place on the steering wheel and the 6-speed gearstick is located below the central column in what can be considered as a well thought out design that enhances the drive. With keyless start function and overall sleek appearance, the cab feels futuristic and modern.
If we were to be critical of one element in the Sprinter Luton’s interior space, it would be the build quality of the dashboard itself which, despite a range of great features and high-tech additions, feels a little cheaper in terms of build quality.
