The new Sprinter is a pioneer in its class. Five world premieres of safety systems support the driver in critical situations and perfectly complement the array of safety measures already in place. For a level of safety with which Mercedes-Benz once again comes a decisive step closer to achieving the vision of accident-free driving.
ADAPTIVE ESP<sup>®</sup> as standard – keeping you safely on track.

ADAPTIVE ESP® as standard – keeping you safely on track.

Safety has always been the top priority at Mercedes-Benz. The Sprinter is equipped with electronic stability program ADAPTIVE ESP® as standard, making it the safest vehicle in its category. ADAPTIVE ESP® enhances safety and ride comfort in certain critical situations by coordinating and enhancing the operation of the brakes and engine management. Complemented by many other features - such as Electronic Brake Management systems and Load adaptive Control systems amongst others, ADAPTIVE ESP® provides a high level of driver assistance and increases stability in critical dynamic situations.

Crosswind Assist: helps counteract drifting.

Crosswind Assist: helps counteract drifting.

The Crosswind Assist supports lane keeping when the vehicle is exposed to strong gusts of winds, e.g. when passing a truck. The new Sprinter is the first van with Crosswind Assist as standard for all Panel vans and Crewbuses.

At speeds over 80 km/h, the system helps correct the vehicle’s course by means of automatic braking interventions on the wheels facing the wind. The need for counter-steering in response to sudden gusts is markedly reduced, relieving the strain on the driver.

Collision Prevention Assist*: warns the driver of impending collisions.

Collision Prevention Assist*: warns the driver of impending collisions.

This radar-based proximity warning assistant, combined with adaptive Brake Assist, helps the driver maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front, thus helping reduce the risk of a rear-end collision. A radar sensor in the front bumper continuously measures the distance from the vehicle ahead in the same lane and the relative speeds of the two vehicles. The proximity warning assistant calculates the necessary safe distance on the basis of this information. Collision Prevention Assist is constantly active in the speed range from 30 to 160 km/h. Stationary obstacles can be registered when the vehicle is moving at speeds up to 70 km/h.

Lane Keeping Assist*: helps you stay on the road.

With Lane Keeping Assist, a camera behind the windscreen films the road ahead. An integrated electronic control unit processes the data continuously, identifying the road surface and markings by differences in contrast. If the van threatens to cross a lane marking without the indicator flashing or without respective changes to the accelerator or brake, the control unit will conclude that the vehicle is leaving its lane unintentionally and will warn the driver with an acoustic signal.

Blind Spot Assist: support for safer lane changes.

Blind Spot Assist: support for safer lane changes.

Lane-changing in urban traffic, overtaking outside of built-up areas and on the motorway – all these situations require drivers to make safety-critical decisions in a matter of seconds. The optional feature Blind Spot Assist supports the driver by warning him of other vehicles in the so-called “blind spot” directly alongside and up to 3 m behind the car. It is activated via the instrument cluster and is operational from speeds of 30 km/h.

Highbeam Assist*: optimum brightness on the road ahead.

Highbeam Assist*: optimum brightness on the road ahead.

The Highbeam Assist feature ensures optimum road illumination by switching high beam on or off according to the given situation. The system is based on a camera inside the front windscreen that continually observes the traffic situation in front of the vehicle. When the camera detects two-track vehicles or motorcycles travelling towards or ahead of the driver's vehicle, high beam is automatically dipped to low beam. Highbeam Assist is able to distinguish between moving and stationary objects. When the road is clear once again, the assistance system switches back to high beam. Highbeam Assist operates at vehicle speeds above 35 km/h.

Passive safety in every van: driver airbag as standard.

The standard driver’s airbag is integrated into the steering wheel. In an accident it is inflated within milliseconds by a gas generator, reducing the risk of the driver’s head or chest becoming seriously injured by the steering wheel during a frontal collision.

The optionally available co-driver airbag is installed in the front passenger side of the dashboard.

Bi-xenon headlamps: superior illumination for safer driving.

Safety is further enhanced through improved illumination of the area immediately to the side of the vehicle through bi-xenon headlamps with LED daytime running lamps and cornering light functions. This enables pedestrians and other obstacles to be spotted sooner, reducing the risk of accidents. The system also makes life easier for the driver when manoeuvring at poorly lit loading ramps or in the dark. Having a second headlamp-integrated light source avoids disconcerting other road users by producing a gradual lighting change.

See what’s behind you – with the optional reversing camera.

The optionally available reversing camera is a visual parking aid and enhances safety when reversing or manoeuvring. It improves the vehicle's rearward visibility. When reverse gear is engaged, the reversing camera displays the area behind the vehicle on a 17.8 cm screen in the cockpit.

Disc brakes: the ideal partner for sophisticated safety features.

The new Sprinter is equipped with disc brakes on all wheels. These brakes support several safety features in the vehicle, making the Sprinter the safest van in its class.
