all-disc, antilock brakes are standard
comes standard with stability control, traction control
Although the 2008 Dodge Sprinter Wagon has not been rated for crash safety by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), reviewers give the van high marks for the many safety features it offers.
Cars.com reports that with the 2008 Sprinter Wagon, Dodge offers as standard safety features all-disc anti-lock brakes and an electronic stability system that "adjusts for how the Sprinter is loaded and adjusts its inputs to compensate." Not standard but available are side impact and side curtain airbags.
Kelley Blue Book points out that "the tall windshield and long door glass provide the driver excellent visibility, while the short pointed nose improves aerodynamics as well as ease of parking." They also mention the Sprinter's larger "side mirrors include separate convex mirrors to expose objects hidden in the driver's blind spots."
Edmunds calls attention to "optional front and rear parking sensors and a rearview parking camera" for the 2008 Dodge Sprinter, plus such standard equipment as "folding wide-angle heated mirrors" and an "emergency exit window."
The 2008 Dodge Sprinter Wagon offers a number of safety features but hasn’t been crash-tested.
