Mercedes-Benz Sprinter City 77: official details, photos and specs

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Mercedes-Benz will showcase five travel coaches and transit buses at the 63rd IAA Commercial Vehicles, in Hall 14/15 in Hanover on Sept. 23-30, 2010. The carmaker will display the zero-emission Citaro FuelCELL Hybrid but what the audience will be really watching out for is the world premiere of the Sprinter City 77 for urban use.

Mercedes-Benz based the minibus on a conventional Sprinter up to the B-pillar. But the bus body with twin rear axle and continuous low-floor area is an exclusive in-house development for the Sprinter City 77.

The minibus, which seats 40 passengers, is slotted between the Sprinter City 65 and the Citaro K. Compared to the previous City 65 flagship model, the new Sprinter City 77 is about a meter longer and offers ten passenger seats more.

The urban bus also features two outward-swinging double doors, which can be operated with an innovative drive concept. It also has a kneeling function, as well as a bright interior with its large windows and large glass doors.

Mercedes-Benz released a statement, describing the minibus to be "ideal" for use as a shuttle bus for airports or trade fairs and for rural services too. It stated further that the minibus is easy to handle because of its relatively short wheelbase and sleek design.

The separately mounted body has a width of only 1.99 meters, which means that this biggest member of the Mercedes-Benz minibus lineup is ideally suited to tight inner city areas.

Powering the Sprinter City 77 is a four-cylinder diesel engine with an output of 120 kW (163 hp) and maximum torque of 360 Nm. It is partnered to a fully automatic 5-speed transmission as standard.
