Experience Mercedes at the Mercedes-Benz Van Experience Live
Matt Morton

HERE’S a chance for you to experience the new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter panel van and X-Class pick-up – for free.

Mercedes is holding its Mercedes-Benz Van Experience Live for van owners and operators.

It’s at the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire and runs from 21-28 June, 2018 (weekdays only).

If you go, you will get the chance to put the X-Class through its paces on the off-road course.

Also available will be the rear-wheel drive and new front-wheel drive variants of the new Sprinter for assessment on on-road routes around Millbrook Proving Ground.

The Vito and Citan will also be available to drive with a special MPG challenge on the city course. There will also be hands-on safety system demonstrations.

The complete new van range will be available, alongside the Approved Used offering, as well as many examples of bodybuilder configurations to view.

Steve Bridge, Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Vans, commented:

“Van Experience Live provides the first opportunity to properly test the new Sprinter. It also provides an unmissable opportunity to test the X-Class on arguably one of the best off-road courses in Europe.

“We enjoy welcoming guests to this event every year and certainly 2018 promises to be another fantastic occasion; almost 22,000 people have attended Van Experience Live during the past 14 years.”

Van Experience Live 2018 is a free event open to all van users, owners and operators, with free food and drink available throughout the day.
