The Mercedes-Benz Metris was introduced in 2015 to be a smaller, more manageable van for delivery drivers and construction workers, taking cues from its larger Sprinter sibling. For 2021 it gets a gentle refresh and new features, and goes on sale in the first half of 2021.
The Mercedes-Benz Metris offers two wheelbases. The standard measures 126 inches for both cargo and passenger variants. The long wheelbase version is 135 inches for maximum cargo space. Mercedes notes the Metris meets all requirements in goods and freight transportation.
The Metris also features a bunch of door and window options, as well as roof rails. The load compartment comes standard with a wooden floor. A plastic floor is optional.
Active Brake Assist is available. It detects a vehicle or pedestrian crossing your path and brakes automatically. Mercedes’ Distronic radar cruise control is also optional. “In addition, the Metris can be individually equipped with numerous other assistance systems, such as Active Parking Assist, Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist.”
All Metris variants now get the company’s 9G-Tronic transmission as opposed to the last gen’s seven-speed. It even features Mercedes’ Dynamic Select functions with drive modes for comfort and sport.
A digital rearview mirror takes an image from a camera in the rear and projects it to the driver. This works when the cargo compartment is full and is operated using the anti-dazzle switch.
An emergency call system comes standard. With crash sensors, accidents are registered immediately and rescue services can be called automatically. The call can also be initiated manually using the SOS button in the overhead control panel.
The Metris comes with either MB’s Audio 30 or Audio 40 infotainment systems that both have 7-inch screens and are available with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Audio 40 system features navigation.
There are multitudes of upfitters that can set your Metris up to fit your business.
