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).

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.

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.
