The V 260 LWB measures 5.140 mm in length with the V 260 XLWB standing at 5.370 mm (+230 mm). The longer wheel base of the V 260 XLWB provides the luxury of ample cabin space to the rear passengers.

With these features, the V-Class sets the benchmark as the MPV offering a high level of safety and comfort on par with typical Mercedes- Benz passenger car standards.
Sprinter: outstanding flexibility and practicality
The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is outstandingly equipped for everyday business operations. Across Indonesia, numerous transportation-, emergency- and private services value the safety and comfort features of the Sprinter.
The Sprinter 315 CDI A3 is equipped with the 6-speed ECO gear 360 manual transmission. This transmission ensures the reduction of fuel consumption and keeping emissions low – important arguments in favour of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter for the use by professional and private services.
For more than 20 years now the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter has been setting the benchmark in the 3.5 t van segment, meeting the needs of customers. When it launched the first Sprinter in 1995, Mercedes-Benz Vans had recognised the signs of the times and the needs of customers. High quality standards were established, both in development and in production.
Revolutionary aspects right from the start included the dynamic design, the numerous base variants, the efficient engines, exemplary safety equipment and the ergonomic cockpit. This innovative concept, the outstanding product quality and satisfied customers ensured a successful start for the sophisticated van. Coupled with its high profile, the Sprinter gave its name to an entire vehicle category and is today synonymous with the segment for vans with a gross vehicle weight of up to five tonnes.
