Third-generation van looks more luxurious than ever

The new-generation Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has been teased on social media ahead of a reveal on February 6.

Pitched as a "completely redesigned" model, the new Sprinter is claimed to "#adVANce" the commercial segment in its upcoming third-generation version.

In a 25-second video clip posted by Daimler's head of commercial vehicles communications, Florian Martens, we can see the new Sprinter will have electric seat adjustment – with controls from Mercedes-Benz passenger cars – a redesigned dashboard fascia with the optional of a new infotainment system, and an electric park brake.

Thanks to official images released in December (below), we also know the Sprinter will feature modern connectivity solutions like USB ports, WiFi hotspot, electric sliding side doors, and Mercedes Pro Connect fleet management online services.

Compared to the current model, the Sprinter's cabin is far more modern and in-line with the company's luxury passenger car range.

We also know the Sprinter will feature in-house-developed underpinnings, compared to the current car that had a lot in common with the previous-generation Volkswagen Crafter.

We'll have to wait until February 6 to see the Sprinter's revised exterior, though we have been given a taste of what's to come through a design sketch released in September last year (above).
