Measuring 8.7 metres in length, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter City 77 is currently the top city bus in the Mercedes-Benz minibus range. The low-floor chassis with tandem rear axle and the body of the Sprinter City 77 were specially developed by the Mercedes-Benz minibus division. Carrying up to 40 passengers, it closes the gap between the Sprinter City 65 and 10.5 metre Citaro K. Compared with the previous top model (the Sprinter City 65) in this range, the Sprinter City 77 passenger compartment is around one metre longer and includes ten additional seats, a continuous low-floor design without steps, and a second wheelchair space. This high transport potential is based on a permissible GVW of 6.8 tonnes.
The chassis of the three-axle Sprinter City 77 features an independent suspension and single tyres all round. Thanks to its compact design and relatively short wheelbase, even the largest Mercedes-Benz city minibus is at home in confined inner city areas. The Sprinter City 77 is also ideal for use as a shuttle bus for airports and trade fairs, and for rural-service operation.
Finished in arctic white, the Sprinter City 77 is powered by a 4-cylinder CDI diesel engine with a 120 kW (163 hp) output. A 5-speed automatic transmission is included as standard. Complying with the EEV (Enhanced Environmentally Friendly Vehicle) and Euro V emissions standards, the Sprinter City 77 is the environmentally compatible model of the future for bus/coach transport specialist Winzenhöler. In addition to the standard-specification wheelchair space (door 1) for passengers with limited mobility, a second wheelchair space (including retractable ramp) has been included at door 2.
