Safety Enhancements –
When Mercedes built the new Sprinter, they didn’t just aim to set a new benchmark for vans – they set out to make one of the safest vans on the road, period. To accomplish this lofty goal, Mercedes brought all of their legendary knowledge, research, and development to the task.
Active Brake Assist senses the likelihood of a collision with a vehicle ahead and sends both a visual and audible warning followed by initiating autonomous braking, and an industry exclusive to include pedestrian active braking.
The new active distance distronic is an intelligent cruise control system that senses traffic conditions and actively controls your speed to keep you at a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.
The new active lane keep assist will provide you with visual and audible warnings if your van leaves its lane unintentionally.
Blind spot assist including Rear Cross Traffic Alert – employs automatic braking to avoid a collision with traffic crossing the vehicle’s path including traffic passing while the van is backing up.
Crosswind Assist detects strong gusts of crosswind and helps the driver to stay on course. At speeds over 50 mph it corrects the vehicle’s course by means of automatic braking intervention on the wheels on the side of the vehicle facing the wind.
LED High Performance Headlights improve illumination, maximizing the view of the road ahead while further enhancing the vehicle’s overall aesthetic with a sleek optional front-end design.
The 2020 Revel will have technology like never before with the new VS30 Chassis.
