SPY: The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van receives a refreshed face for 2013

Apart from the new Citan and future Viano arriving in 2014, the Sprinter is also due to undergo a facelift procedure destined to keep the vehicle attractive up to 2017, when a new generation is set to enter the stage. The front fascia is the part set to change the most after the restyling process, as it gets new headlights optionally available with LED daytime running lights and a beefier radiator grille with the big Star placed in the middle. For the rest of the body, just subtle or no visual improvements are expected. The engine lineup will likely stay the same, but further tweaks in the efficiency department are bound to happen, that will help reduce the CO2 emission and improve fuel economy. At the moment, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is getting the taste of Scandinavian snow and ice, as the winter development is fully underway. Check out further spy shots after the jump!

Any talk of a 4x4 version for 2013? If so, I am soo ready to buy. Not too excited about having one converted by an aftermarket company. I assume it would void the warranty and cost a bundle.
Looking for a solid vehicle to bring to the family to the mountains and love all of the flexibility and looks of the Sprinter !

Yes, we too are holding out for a 4x4 Sprinter. Hopefully this will be the year. We live in the mountains and 4x4 is a must with any vehicle. The Sprinter provides so much flexibility for all kinds of uses. I can hardly wait.

The 4x4 is available in germany since 2008, Thought you could order it worldwide (factory-4x4 by Mercedes, no aftermarket 4x4)

I'm in canada and have been holding out for a sprinter intel awd model. Rumor now suggests 2014.

I'm also in Canada, and I'm holding out for the intelligent awd drive model. But I'm losing patience. Hope Fords new transit will go 4x4.

Définitively, a MB Sprinter with 4x4 option in Québec, Canada will be à hit. I'm a hunter and this kind of truck is completely absent in the market (just 4x4 pick-ups). Patrice Raulin.h
