It may be heavy..but the much more heavier Actros truck is the easiest vehilce I've ever driven..It'll be the same in the case of Sprinter too..

yes its a comfortable people mover, available in low roof version too.

Once hired it for taxi in germany, real comfortable ride & very impressive pickup(felt it while driver was making an entry into autobahn)

comparable vehicle is ford transit, i have driven one. we borrowed it from our employer for a weekend getaway to nederlands.
