2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris Buyer's Guide

If you’ve been paying attention to the van market, you’ve observed old-school body-on-frame truck-based vans are on the wane. Instead, a whole new wave of lightweight, unit body, exceptionally fuel-efficient models—vans having more in common with cars than trucks—are taking over the commercial van industry. Thanks to the success of its full-size Sprinter, Mercedes-Benz has added a smaller commercial van to its U.S. lineup. Larger than the small vans, and smaller than the large vans, the mid-size 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris minivans supplanted the Mercedes-Benz R-Class in Europe. Marketed here this year as the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris, the model has been called “Vito” in Europe since 1996. Configured for passengers, the minivan is called “Viano” over there. Together, the two comprise the Mercedes-Benz V-Class.

What makes it move?

Power for the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris van comes from a 208-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 258 ft-lbs of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission will rout the output of the engine to the rear wheels. While there are diesel engines with all-wheel drive powertrains available for the V-Class minivans in Europe, initially, the US markets will get the 2.0-liter four and rear-wheel drive only. To boost fuel efficiency, the engine is fitted with the Mercedes-Benz ECO automatic stop/start function. EPA figures have yet to be announced.

Why buy the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris?

According to Mercedes-Benz marketing materials, the 2016 Metris minivan’s value proposition includes superior craftsmanship, high cargo/towing capacity, and an attractive price. It is designed specifically for ease of use in large urban areas, while remaining at once agile and spacious. The Metris’ tidy size means it can fit into municipal parking garages, but it can also readily meet the wide variety of load-hauling needs of those operating home-based businesses. On the safety front, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris van features Attention Assist, Crosswind Assist, and load-adaptive ESP—all as standard equipment.
