New vans for 2018, 2019 and 2020

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2018

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has built up a formidable reputation in its short 20-year lifespan, in terms of safety, comfort and reliability in the large van sector. This year (2018) sees the introduction of the third-generation Sprinter (MKI 1995-2006; MKII 2006-2018), which will be powered by the same 2.1-litre engine as the previous generation.

Mercedes-Benz Vito 2019

Despite only hitting the market in 2014, the third-generation Mercedes-Benz Vito has quickly passed its sell-by-date. In a recent group test (read more on Vito v Transit Custom v Transporter), the Vito was bottom of the pile and sharply criticised for its ride and handling, uninspiring dashboard design and outdated technology. An update is scheduled for late 2019/early 2020.
