Mercedes-Benz Announces New Metris Van | Adrian Steel

Are you a trade professional looking to purchase a cargo van that’s powerful enough to haul all of your equipment, yet compact enough to maneuver dense city streets? The new Metris cargo van by Mercedes-Benz might be your answer.  The Metris debuted on March 4, 2015 at the Work Truck Show to positive reviews and Mercedes-Benz plans to make this mid-size cargo van available in the United States starting in October. Similar to the Vito, which is only available in Europe and Mexico, the Metris van meets the highest standards of efficiency, safety, and comfort.


The New Model is Designed for City Use

If you’re a trade professional who operates from home, then this midsize commercial van was designed to fit your needs!  It’s smaller than the full-size Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, but larger than compact cargo vans like the Ford Transit Connect, and fits nicely in your home garage. The compact design combined with a big cargo volume of 186 cubic feet, make this mid-sized cargo van ideal for heavy traffic areas.


The Metris Van Boasts Outstanding Safety Systems

The Metris van comes equipped with a whole host of safety features including ATTENTION ASSIST®, a drowsiness detection system specifically designed to keep you alert on long drives. This system takes into account a wide array of factors from environmental conditions to how often you interact with the vehicle’s controls. The system then determines if the driver is fatigued and sounds an alert. Another safety feature of the Metris van is the Crosswind Assist with Load-Adaptive ESP®. This system makes use of precision sensors, which keeps the vehicle under control by automatically braking individual wheels. Perfect for high wind or torrential rain!


More Compact, but Still Powerful

The Metris mid-size commercial van boasts:

  • Four-cylinder M274 gasoline engine
  • Seven-speed automatic transmission
  • 208 horsepower
  • 258 pound-feet of torque
  • Long wheelbase
