Front wheel, rear wheel or all-wheel drive  – with the 3 drive variants for the Sprinter there is likely the matching drive for every transport task and for almost any driving profile.
The advantages of the front wheel drive are, amongst other things, the exceptional traction when the vehicle is lightly laden, in the large load compartment volume and in the high load with low boot sills. Exclusively available for this drive variant: the new 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission.
With the rear wheel drive the separation from the drive and steering improves the driving comfort and optimises the turning circle. The handling also becomes more agile – particularly with the more powerful engines. In trailer operation, the drive on the rear axle also shows its strengths.
The engageable all-wheel drive 4x4  improves the traction, particularly in difficult climatic conditions or bad road conditions, and therefore offers a bonus in terms of driving safety and vehicle dynamics. For demanding uses a reduction gear can additionally be ordered. For the first time, the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic transmission is available for the Sprinter with all-wheel drive  for exceptional ease of shifting and high fuel efficiency.
