The Mercedes-Benz Metris lineup will not experience any significant revisions in 2022 due to the automaker's plans.
The GLI's lower back bumper sports a honeycomb shape and wider dual exhaust pipes to boost the sedan's sound.
The passenger van is exclusively available with the longer wheelbase; the cargo van is available with either a 126- or 135-inch wheelbase.
All Metris vans use a 208-hp, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. Nine-speed automatic transmission drives the rear wheels.
Mercedes vehicles have great towing and payload capacities. Metris can tow 5000 pounds. Comparatively, the Ford Transit Connect can tow 2000 pounds.
The Metris is available in passenger and cargo van versions, with the latter receiving ratings of 19 mpg city and 23 mpg highway.
Metris has one more seat than Transit Connect. The second and third rows can be moved or removed to accommodate passengers and cargo.
Although the interior isn't as luxurious as a standard Mercedes, the design is attractive and the accommodations provide a respectable level of comfort.
We were dissatisfied that the steering column cannot be telescoped and that the bottom seat cushions are too narrow for persons with larger posteriors.
Every Metris comes with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. It takes the place of the dated 5.8-inch screen that was previously standard.
The new system, in contrast to the older one, has been updated to incorporate support for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Additionally, the vehicle has improved radio reception and an integrated navigation system with real-time traffic data.
The Transit Connect has a longer powertrain warranty, while the NV200 has the best limited and powertrain warranties in its class, beating the Metris.
