Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Tipper Review
The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Tipper at a glance
When you think of the Mercedes-Benz brand, you may think of luxury and stylish vehicles. What many do not think of are versatility and practicality. But this is where the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter range of vans comes in. Described as one of the most adaptable large vans on the market, it champions reliability and efficiency while keeping the driver, their passengers, and the payload safe and secure.
The Tipper variety of the Sprinter van is the ideal choice for the easy load and unload of goods, due to its open body and large cargo length (3,320mm by 2,040mm). Using the powerful auxiliary battery, tipping heavy loads has never been easier. With the hit of a switch, the van can easily tip loads of over 1000kg out, perfect for businesses or workers who need to quickly and easily move large amounts of materials.
Want to know more about the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Tipper? Van Sales UK has put together this blog on some of the key features and benefits of the vehicle.
Engines and Spec
In terms of the engine, a new 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine design debuted in mid-2020, giving power outputs of between 114hp to 190hp, and torque output of 300 Nm to 440 Nm. It is available in the new front-wheel drive variant, with rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive also available.
The front-wheel drive key advantage is allowing for an increased payload, with other benefits being a lower loading sill height and an optional nine-speed automatic gearbox in place of the standard six. Whatever your traction requirements, you can choose a Sprinter perfect for you.
Active brake assist is available as standard in the Sprinter Tipper, helping drivers to keep safe on the road. You’ll also feel reassured by some of the additional safety features, such as a deadlock, alarm and visible VIN. It has 6 recessed floor load eyes that will help you to secure goods during transport and is built to last with a welded high-strength steel body frame.
In terms of how it is to drive, you can expect a smooth ride with a comfortable suspension that will adjust to road surface imperfections with ease. The handling and manoeuvrability allow a driver to operate with confidence on all types of roads, able to safely and securely reach destinations.
While the champion feature of the Tipper is the open cargo section attached to the powerful auxiliary battery, the interior is also built to please. Available in a single cab and a double cab variant, the Sprinter Tipper can be adapted to suit a single, lone contractor or a team of workers.
The MBUX infotainment system debuts in new models of the Sprinter, with a high-resolution 7-inch touchscreen as standard that utilises What3words, their geocoded map system, ‘Hey Mercedes’ voice control, and much more.
It has comfortable seats with enough space for 3 in the single cab variant, and 6 in the double crew cab option. The attractive yet functional design allows a driver to easily operate the vehicle, with a steering wheel that allows for controlling the screen and instrument cluster with ease.
In terms of storage, you can expect a trio of dash-top trays, and even under-seat storage space, perfect for equipment and other paraphernalia.
