Hymer has introduced Mercedes Sprinter-based versions of its popular B-Class range.

The B-Class range of A-class motorhomes received a complete redesign last year, with all-new habitation bodies featuring bold, high-fronted rooflines. At the time of launch, the new bodies had only been designed for the Fiat Ducato base, but now they’ve been adapted for the Mercedes Sprinter.

The B-Class range of A-class motorhomes received a complete redesign last year, with all-new habitation bodies featuring bold, high-fronted rooflines. At the time of launch, the new bodies had only been designed for the Fiat Ducato base, but now they’ve been adapted for the Mercedes Sprinter.

 

Hymer has resurrected the Hymermobil StarLine badge for these new premium B-Classes. There are six models in the range, four of which have double floors. The larger models come on the tag-axle Sprinter 516 chassis, with an MTPLM of 5000kg, while the smaller models come on the 4200kg Sprinter 316 chassis. All models come with 163bhp engines as standard, but can be upgraded to 190bhp units, and can also be equipped with torque converter automatic transmissions. Hymer claims to have extensively road-tested the StarLine prior to launch, carrying out braking, swerving and cornering tests, both in dry and wet conditions, in collaboration with Mercedes.

 

Spec levels are high, and include cruise control, Bi-Xenon headlights, twin garage doors on garage bed models, automatically retracting electric entrance steps for driver’s side doors, illuminated cab entry and electric cab windows. Details of UK availability have yet to be confirmed, but in Germany prices will start at €80,990.
