We always want to like Eurovans but we can never quite do it. This Canadian import might change all that. Though the styling of the US spec Eurovans is seemingly holding up better every day, they've never done anything for us. Even a VR6 badge on the later models couldn't sway us.
We're assuming that this Transporter came in from Canada under the 25 year rule as nothing like this was ever sold in the US. A 2.4L diesel, 5-speed with Syncro AWD should have the 1987 Vanagon in our Garage a little worried for its place.
The exterior looks clean and neat and is toughened by Moto Roster approved black steelies.
The interior is pure "1990's girlfriend's Jetta" right down to the head unit on the dashboard and the seat pattern.
The work van setup could be a bit limiting but it could be a great base for an adventure van, bike hauler, or an awesome track day support van.
The price on this one on eBay in Florida is a little dear, but we don't blame the seller as there can't be too many others out there in the US.
You can now order the Mercedes Sprinter in the US with the 4x4 diesel setups but you'll be pushing $50k when you're all done. If this were $8,500 we'd take our chances with this oddball and be guaranteed not to ever park next to another one.
