Meet The Metris

March 21st, 2016 by


Introducing Metris. As the first mid-size commercial van from Mercedes-Benz, the Metris will change the way you do business. Gone are the days of settling for vehicles that are too small for your cargo or too bulky for your garage. Metris is sized just right to fit anything and anywhere.


The Metris Cargo Van was purposefully built for the long haul. It has the payload, durability, and versatile cargo space you’d expect from a larger model, yet parks conveniently in your garage at the end of the day. With a combined 23 miles per gallon,19 it’s not just efficient when it comes to gasoline—it’s built to work for long periods without service or maintenance, giving you one of the lowest costs of ownership in its class.

Passenger Van

Metris is the first choice when it comes to moving passengers safely and efficiently, providing a suite of standard VAN safety technologies such as curtain airbags1 all around, Load-Adaptive Electronic Stability Program (ESP®) 18 with Crosswind Assist,3 and ATTENTION ASSIST®2 Although it has space enough for up to eight passengers, it offers fuel consumption comparable to that of a much smaller van, with a combined 22 mpg.19 Add optional comfort features like electric sliding doors and Automatic Climate Control, as well as additional safety features such as Active Parking Assist, Blind Spot Assist,5 COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST,4 and Lane Keeping Assist,6 and you have the perfect van for your shuttle, chauffeur, or taxi business in the garageable size you want.


Metris keeps your total cost of ownership low and your productivity high. When you spend less time and money on maintenance, your whole company runs more smoothly. Metris fits your business—and your bottom line.


It may stow and tow like a large commercial vehicle, but it doesn’t have to feel like one. Metris drives with a Best-In-Class turning radius and easy car-like handling. Electromechanical steering with standard gearshift paddles responds to wheel turning quickly, returns to the straight-line position swiftly, and maneuvers easily at high and low speeds.

A 5.8″ high-resolution display screen puts you in touch with an optional Becker® MAP PILOT® Navigation System,15 for peace of mind on the road. An optional multifunction steering wheel gives you control over music, phone calls, navigation, and more, right where you need it. With everything at your fingertips, you can feel comfortable knowing you’re always on the right track. Thanks to an available Automatic Climate Control System and heated front seats, both driver and passengers can enjoy the perfect temperature, mile after mile. With seating that feels more like that of a sedan, standard cruise control, two large cup holders (with two additional cup holders standard for front passengers), and plenty of cockpit storage options, you just might forget you’re driving a commercial van.
