In February of 2020 our team used the Mercedes-Benz Metris cargo van to haul 100 cones, a couple pop-up tents, boxes of merchandise, banners and signs and more to the Avenues Mall for the early morning cruise-in. The Metris swallowed it all and had plenty of room for more.
Not too big and definitely not too small, the Mercedes-Benz Metris Mid-Size Commercial Van provides incredible cargo capacity for very little money. Matter of fact, the Metris is the least expensive U.S. Mercedes-Benz with a starting price of $28,950.
Our Metris is powered by a fuel efficient 4-cylinder gasoline engine that makes 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque and sends power to the rear wheels through a 7-speed automatic transmission. Even though the Metris looks much bigger on the outside, we found the driving dynamics similar to a Mercedes-built minivan, if that existed. Braking was excellent, steering on point and much to our surprise, the suspension felt quite sporty.
