• Stuttgart/Finland, Mar 8, 2012 - Even in snow and the most frigid temperatures the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter once again demonstrated its strengths and outperformed its competitors. As in past years, eight editors accepted the invitation of the Finnish automotive magazine Auto, tekniikka ja kuljetus to subject the vans to rigorous tests. Competing against one another this year were vehicles from the large van segment, i.e. in the weight class up to 3.5 tons GVW.
