Who are Mercedes?
Loved by everyone from Princess Diana to Michael Jackson, Mercedes needs no introduction. This luxe car manufacturer also makes a handful of van models, which have picked up a clutch of awards. Take your pick from the Citan, the Vito, the X-Class and the Sprinter.
The Citan is the smallest in the range, but it boasts a large load compartment and a choice of three lengths. It’s agile, great for city streets, and economical too.
The X-Class is a pick-up truck with style, providing you with a luxury cabin environment and a comfortable ride, while the Vito gives you a powerful V6 engine and serious space.
And since its launch in 1995, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has won numerous prizes, most recently for its superb technology. The latest model includes in-house telematics and built-in connectivity.
If you’re looking to lower your environmental impact – as well as your costs – consider the eVito. It’s 100% electric and drives up to 93 miles on a single charge – more than enough for simple trips around town. It’s also cheap to run and you’ll save money on both tax and maintenance.
