How many people can fit in a Sprinter Passenger Van?2017 Sprinter Passenger Van seating capacity

Believe it or not, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Passenger Van can be configured for up to 12 people. This configuration has both a driver and a front row passenger. In back, the second and third row can both accommodate three people while providing enough room for passengers to move through to the rear fourth row, which can seat four people.

There are several Sprinter Passenger Van configurations including standard roof, high roof, 144-inch wheelbase, 170-inch wheelbase, front wheel drive, and all-wheel drive options. Interestingly enough all configurations and combinations can still support seating for up to 12 people.

What is the roof height of the Sprinter Passenger Van?

The standard roof provides plenty of interior headroom. In fact, with the standard roof, there is just over 64 inches from the floor to the roof. That’s just over five feet, much more than your standard SUV. The standard roof is only available on the 144-inch wheelbase model but accommodates both the front-wheel drive and the all-wheel drive variants.

There is also a high roof option that comes standard on the 170-inch wheelbase and is an option on the 144-inches wheelbase model with front-wheel drive. This high roof option provides over 75-inches of vertical interior room. That’s enough room for a 6-foot adult to stand up and still have 3 inches to spare.

The side door height is also impressive. With the high roof option, you get just over 70-inches of height meaning that the average person won’t even have to duck down. The standard roof provides a 59-inch tall opening.

The side-door opening width stays the same regardless of how long the wheelbase is or how tall the roof is. It provides a very accommodating 51-inch opening. You also have the dual rear doors, which provide plenty of room to load the back end up with cargo.
