It’s twenty years since the Mercedes Sprinter first graced these shores, so the manufacturer is celebrating with a limited edition model limited to just, er, 1,200 vans. Standing out from a normal Sprinter thanks to ‘Sprinter 20’ badging, unique wheel trims and a chrome grille, the celebratory model also comesContinue Reading

Dacia is to enter the light commercial vehicle market in the UK later this year with a special commercial version of the Duster SUV, to be called, unsurprisingly, Duster Commercial.
