Helpful in many traffic situations.

Long motorway stretches, lane changes on multi-lane highways or manoeuvring on ramps: there are many situations in which assistance systems can support the driver. The Sprinter can be equipped as needed depending on the vehicle use. All the assistance systems have one thing in common: they are all state of the art. For example, the Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, which can independently keep the preset clearance to a vehicle in front and therefore make long journeys more relaxed. Or the Parking Package with 360° camera, Parking Assist and Drive Away Assist, which, thanks to its all-round view, can be a valuable support when parking and manoeuvring.
