When you think of Mercedes-Benz, you think of big luxury sedans, roadsters, and the SLS supercar. You don’t think of cargo vans – it just seems so out of place. Well, guess what? Mercedes-Benz is one of the big players in the worldwide cargo van market with the Sprinter van lineup.

For the past few years, Mercedes-Benz has been making inroads with the Sprinter van lineup in the U.S. With the 2013 Sprinter, Mercedes-Benz decided to host an event that shows all of the advantages the Sprinter lineup has to offer. They called it “Test the Best.”

We had the chance to check out the Test the Best tour and participate in some of events such as a fuel economy run, braking exhibition, and a slalom course.
