Should You Buy a New or Used Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van?

Sprinter Van

The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is one of the most well-respected commercial vans in the world, not just because of its conveniently customizable interior, but also because of longevity. Look around and you’ll find plenty of used Sprinter vans on the road, making them a cost-effective option if you’re looking to add one to your fleet. But, before you head to the bank to discuss financing, there are important reasons why we believe the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans are worth the investment for Los Angeles drivers.

Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX)


Mercedes-Benz User Experience, or MBUX, is a revolution in driving technology. The new user interface is equipped with state-of-the-art artificial intelligence that learns as you use it. Not only that, but the MBUX feature can also be fitted with either a 7-inch or 10.25-inch touchscreen for unprecedented control and visibility.

Traffic Awareness

Even the best-designed vans have their share of blind spots, which can make driving the busy roads around Pasadena challenging. The new Sprinter vans offer the following optional features to effectively act as a second set of eyes on the road:

  • Blind Spot Assist
  • Active Brake Assist
  • Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC®
  • Active Lane Keep Assist
  • Traffic Sign Assist
  • And more!

Financing Options

Unless you choose a Certified Pre-owned Sprinter van, you won’t qualify for certain finance rates and incentives from the manufacturer. Without these perks, you could find yourself paying almost as much for your used van as you would buying new.

Warranty Protection

Of course, buying new also means your investment is covered by a manufacturer’s warranty as well. Imagine how much a recalled part could cost your Alhambra area business? Choosing a new vehicle means you have the power of Mercedes-Benz behind you, covering you automatically against defect.

Wide Selection

There are abundant pre-owned Sprinter vans available, but finding the perfect cargo van, crew van, or passenger van right when you plan to buy can be a challenge. Choosing a new van means you get what you want when you need it.
