The new Mercedes Sprinter with all-wheel drive is available for order in Russia


Russian dealers of Mercedes-Benz started the accepting of orders for light vehicle of third-generation Mercedes-Benz Sprinter cars with all-wheel drive, the press service of the German brand reports.

The all-wheel drive is connected with the engine running, when the car is standing still, or at low speeds up to 10 km / h. In this case, the torque on the Sprinter 4x4 is distributed between the front and rear axles in a ratio of 35:65.

The 4ETS electronic traction control system is fully integrated into the Adaptive ESP electronic stabilization system and it is specially adapted to work with all-wheel drive. At the same time, all the integral functions of the Adaptive ESP electronic stabilization system were preserved - the ABS anti-blocking system, the ASR anti-skid system, the EBV electronic brake force distribution system, the BAS emergency braking system and the AAS anti-recoil system.

A particular importance in view of the variety of body options for the Sprinter light-duty car is belonged to the device for estimating the mass of the load and the center of gravity of the car (Load Adaptive Control, LAC). Thus, the adaptive ESP system, based on the nature of the vehicle’s movement — for example, in the case of special superstructure, registers a high center of gravity and adapts its control characteristic to the existing situation. Adaptive ESP increases the degree of security especially off-road, for example, when driving on slopes with a large lateral slope of the car.

The new Sprinter 4x4 received the new ground clearance increased of 155 mm on front and of 135 mm on rear. So, the front overhang angle on the Sprinter with an admissible total weight of 3.5 tons is 26 degrees instead of 16 degrees on the Sprinter with conventional rear-wheel drive, and the rear overhang angle on a van with a short overhang is 25 degrees (17 degrees). The longitudinal angle of the road - which is important when driving road surface has bumps - on the Sprinter 4x4 with a standard wheelbase increased from 14 degrees to 23 degrees. In compare with the traditional drive the mass of Sprinter 4x4 increased by only 140 kg.
