Pricing begins from $72,479 before on-road costs for the 414CDI, and $87,926 before on-road costs for the more powerful 416CDI.

Both trims make use of a 2.1-litre twin-turbocharged four-cylinder diesel. In 414CDI trim, it has an output of 105kW/330Nm, the 416CDI has an output of 120kW/360Nm.

The Sprinter Transfer Minibus is built on a medium wheelbase platform with power sent through a seven-speed torque-converter automatic transmission to the rear wheels.
