2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris Van

Legacy of the Mercedes Metris Van

Through the years, Mercedes-Benz has kept that pioneering spirit alive by developing that make working easier, safer, and more efficient.

Passenger Vans

If your business needs to move passengers safely and efficiency, the Metris can accommodate up to 8 passengers — perfect for vanpools, shuttles, chauffeurs, taxi businesses, and a variety of customized interiors. And it’s attractive TCO is further enhanced by its fuel efficiency that provides 22/mpg while delivering plenty of horsepower (208hp) to comfortably transit the busiest urban thoroughfares.

Observations and Experiences

Driving the Metris feels more like you’re driving the Mercedes-Benz C-Class than a Sprinter Van. Car and Driver Magazine described the Metris as “complete with a taut ride, level cornering, and crisp feel through the steering wheel and the brake pedal, attributes we haven’t felt in a van this size…ever.” Others have remarked on this quiet ride, which is a true achievement for any cargo van.

The Metris provides a full compliment of features that provide exceptional safety features to other compelling benefits. Vehicles come with up to 8 airbags for exceptional crash safety.
