The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has scooped two top awards at the VansA2Z Van of the Year celebration, which took place last week (15 March 2012) at Twickenham Rugby Stadium – Best Large Panel Van; an award shared jointly with the VW Crafter, which is built by Mercedes-Benz, and Best 4×4 Panel Van, proving its worth both on and off the road.

In addition, the mighty Fuso Canter was Highly Commended in the Light Truck category.

Steve Bridge, Van Sales and Marketing Director for Mercedes-Benz UK, said: “The Sprinter is widely recognised as the finest vehicle in its class, and to win two awards at the VansA2Z Van of the Year celebrations really is testament to the strength and appeal of this hard-working vehicle. This is the second year in a row we have won Large Panel Van with VansA2Z.”

VansA2Z Editor, Neil McIntee said: “Last year’s winner, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, retains its Large Panel Van of the Year crown. The van is beautifully put together and is available in a huge array of configurations and multiple wheelbases with load volumes going up to 17.0m3. There is also a wide selection of chassis cab variants ready and waiting to have appropriate bodywork fitted.

“We have also had the opportunity to test the Sprinter 4×4 in some very demanding conditions and were quite amazed by how proficient the system is in action; even on normal road tyres – well done to Mercedes-Benz!”
