The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter continues into 2013 with very few changes. An optional 7-speed automatic transmission is the most significant new feature, while the braking system is also updated with new electronics. The brakes will automatically apply a small amount of pressure in the wet to keep rotors dry and full braking will now automatically be applied if the car detects an emergency braking situation.
