How Does the 2017 Metris Compare to the Competition?

One year after it was introduced as an all-new midsize cargo van, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz Metris Cargo Van returns with a powerful and fuel-efficient powertrain, responsive drivetrain, long list of advanced features, and numerous premium safety features to help keep everyone and everything safe and secure. This year’s Metric is a compelling choice for drivers and business owners who have real commercial or fleet needs but don’t need as much space or power as a full-size cargo van.

Of course, you may also be considering other cargo vans on the market. Don’t just take our word for it: see how the Metris compares to the likes of the Nissan NV200, Ford Transit Connect, and Ram ProMaster City before taking it for a test drive at Vin Devers Autohaus of Sylvania.

Size and Cargo Dimensions

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz is a midsize van that is better capable of maneuvering around town, squeezing into tight alleys for deliveries, and saving money on fuel, but it’s also the most spacious option available in the segment.
