When it comes to commercial vehicles, there isn’t an overwhelming amount of choices available to Boston Nissan shoppers. In fact, until recently there were really only two manufacturers to choose from; neither of which were from the Nissan family. Thanks to Nissan and the invention of their high-quality passenger vans like the 2013 Nissan NV 2500, there are now more options than ever before. But how does this new line of passenger vehicles stack up? Let’s compare the former industry-leading Mercedes Sprinter 2500 to Nissan’s newer line.
No matter how you slice it, there are more features on the 2013 Nissan NV 2500 than there are on the base level Mercedes Sprinter 2500 – which is even more impressive when you consider that the Nissan is typically priced much lower. For example, the Nissan has power remote driver and passenger mirrors, while the mirrors on the Mercedes are manual. This can make a big difference when trying to maneuver an oversized van.
The 2013 Nissan NV 2500 also has a rear bumper step where the Mercedes does not, and the Mercedes does not feature standard daytime running lights like the 2500 does. There are two AC power outlets in the Nissan, compared to zero in the Mercedes. Cruise control and a front reading light are both standard on the Nissan, while unavailable on the Mercedes.
A big innovation for the Nissan is the fact that the front passenger seat folds down. Not only does this create more cargo space, but the seat folds in such a way that it can be used as a desktop. This is incredibly convenient for the professional driver who needs to pull over and make the best use of his or her time.
The Nissan not only has a low tire pressure warning system, but it has a system that’s specific to each tire, so you’ll know instantly which tire is experiencing the problem. The Mercedes doesn’t offer this feature at all, nor does it have back parking sensors that warn if the van is getting too close to something while being parked. Finally, the Mercedes does not offer the security system that’s standard on the Nissan.
It’s easy to see that the 2013 Nissan NV 2500 has more intuitive features than the Mercedes. When you also consider that it’s typically offered at a lower price, Nissan is the clear winner.
