Hosting a monthly Cars & Coffee event can be a lot of work. From the pre-planning and advertising to the day of the actual event, there are lot of moving parts. With an event the size of Jacksonville’s Cars & Coffee, with 800-1000 vehicles in attendance, setting up requires a lot of equipment.

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.
