The Inkanyezi offers passenger comfort, thanks to 23 durable and easy-to-clean vinyl seats.
Getting in and out of the vehicle requires little effort, as the Inkanyezi is fitted with a side-step. It provides an extra layer of safety, by minimising chances of slipping while getting into the vehicle or disembarking.
A hard-wearing Marley floor provides an anti-slip surface and protects the van’s floors from impact damage and scratches.
On the outside, the vehicle shows off its local heritage, as it comes fully branded with the South African flag sticker, which is aesthetically pleasing but also acts as a reflector, for safer night-time driving.
With the Sprinter Inkanyezi, Mercedes-Benz Vans offers a complete package. With in-house financing available from Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, dealers are able to tailor-make affordable financial packages for all taxi customers.
In terms of after-sales, it is fully supported by the manufacturer’s dealer network. Mercedes-Benz Vans has an extensive dealer network to provide the necessary support to Inkanyezi customers, such as flexible servicing hours and dedicated taxi service bays in their workshop.* All this equates to the quickest possible lead time for services and repairs.
The Inkanyezi is in the business of elevating safety standards. The Inkanyezi comes standard with robust seat anchorage and Adaptive Brake Lights. In an emergency, the normal brake light turns into a flashing brake light, which is proven to be more eye-catching to other motorists.
Optional extras to bolster safety include Active Brake Assist, Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, Parking Assist and Lane Keeping Assist, 360° camera and Blind Spot Assist with Rear Cross Traffic.
The rear-wheel drive Inkanyezi 516 CDI is powered by a 2 litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine that delivers on its promise of power and economy, a combination that can directly impact profitability in the taxi industry. The trusted unit offers 120kW with peak torque of 330Nm, available between 1200 and 2200rpm.
