The Sprinter minibuses

Economy

There are many reasons why the Sprinter City 75 pays off in the long run. One of these is the optimised lifetime of all moving vehicle parts, such as engine, transmission, drive shafts or passenger doors. Another is the standard and wear-free retarder with hand and foot control for brake-friendly driving.

The Sprinter City has always been one of the most economical minibuses in its class. And this won’t be changing anytime soon. The proven OM651 BlueTEC engine is impressive both economically and ecologically. Thanks to state-of-the-art SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) technology, it has been fulfilling the Euro-VI Standard for years and is extremely frugal in terms of consumption. Fuel-saving is also helped by the speed-sensitive electromechanical power steering.

The proven 7G-Tronic PLUS automatic transmission with Drive Select and paddles remains integrated as standard. A new feature is the standard HOLD function. It holds the vehicle in position, for example when starting off on a hill, until the accelerator pedal is depressed*. Comfortable and at the same time economical driving is guaranteed by the powertrain specially adapted to the Sprinter City 75.

In spite of its impressive 8.5 metres in length and permissible total weight of 6.8 tons, the Sprinter City 75 is designed as a two-axle vehicle. In addition to the visibly independent structure from the B-pillar, the design and load capacity of its vehicle structure and its rear axle distinguish it from the Sprinter VAN. This dual-rear drive axle has a maximum payload of 4.8 tons and its standard air suspension ensures a constant vehicle level with consistently high ride comfort.

With a body width of only 2.02 metres and a turning circle of 15.3 metres, the Sprinter City 45 is extremely easy to manoeuvre. A permissible total weight of 5.0 to 5.5 tons ensures adequate weight reserves even when fully occupied by up to 28 passengers.

Opinions about the vehicles and their special areas of use.

Opinions about the vehicles and their special areas of use.

“We opted for the Sprinter City 75 because the city traffic is arranged here in Göppingen so that you can’t get through with big buses. We have six Sprinter Cities in operation. They run every day in a rolling system in twoshift mode.”
