Mercedes-Benz Sprinter - 77.6% pass rate

By 2013, the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter was on the verge of being replaced with an updated model; however, as our MoT data illustrates, it remains one of the UK's best large vans for passing the first test. 

Suspension is the only area that drags down the Sprinter's average score, with anti-roll bars and leaf springs being twice as likely to fail compared to the national average. However, when it comes to lighting and electrics, the Sprinter performs 29 per cent better than expected.
