2017 Ford Transit Connect vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Review

Comparison Review

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Ford Transit Connect is a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Ford Transit Connect and the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Transit Connect is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford Transit Connect, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

Drivetrain
The Ford Transit Connect has much lower torque than the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Ford Transit Connect has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, allowing you to much more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is clearly the choice over the Ford Transit Connect for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Transit Connect has a little less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford Transit Connect seats a lot fewer people than the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. The Ford Transit Connect has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.
