Hard-working and thoroughly efficient, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris is a mid-sized van with super-sized capabilities. Business owners in Maui have a choice between two simple yet sophisticated trims: Cargo Van and Passenger Van. Whether you’re searching for the perfect vehicle to haul tools and machinery, or to carry passengers to their destinations, the new Metris is right for the job. See what else the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris can do below!
As one of the most efficient vehicles in its segment, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris can be enhanced with optional ECO-START®/Stop, which reduces fuel usage and emissions by turning off the engine at stoplights and in similar situations. With the help of ECO-START®/Stop, the Passenger Van earns an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city/23 mpg highway rating, while the Cargo Van lands gets a 21 mpg city/24 mpg highway score. What’s more, the new 2016 Metris offers up some of the highest power available to the commercial van class:
2.0L 4‐cylinder turbo gasoline engine with Direct Injection (208 hp and 258 lb‐ft)
7‐speed automatic transmission with standard shift paddles (7G‐TRONIC®)
Special suspension for the Passenger Van
Electromechanical power steering
Best-in-class turning radius of 38.7 feet
6.5 J X 17 steel wheels
91 Octane fuel is recommended, but regular fuel – min. 87 Octane – is satisfactory
Select Dimensions and Capacities
With much higher towing and payload capacities than your typical commercial van, the Metris gives you the means to tow additional goods, all while hauling more than ever in its spacious cargo bay.
Designed with you in mind, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter offers a seemingly endless list of benefits to Maui business owners, which includes:
Versatility: From its compact design, to its plethora of optional packages, to its customizable rear doors, the Metris adapts to your business’s needs. You can even put the finishing touch on your Metris with a bold exterior color, such as Jupiter Red, Navy Blue, or Mountain Crystal White.
Impressive Capacities: Easily one of the most impressive aspects of the Metris is its capabilities. Both Metris configurations can tow up to 5,000 pounds and haul 1,874 to 2,502 pounds. The Cargo Van brags a massive 186 cubic feet of storage space, while the Passenger Van offers optional eight-person seating.
Service Savings: Routine repairs on commercial vehicles can be expensive for small- to medium-sized business. With a service interval of up to 15,000 miles, the Metris helps you cut back on maintenance costs, letting you put more funds toward expanding your company.
Abundant Comforts and Technology
Many commercial vans focus so strictly on utility that they neglect comfort; the 2016 Metris isn’t one of the crowd. Furnished with storage compartments, four cup holders, cloth or leatherette upholstery, a passenger-side sliding door, and 180- to 270-degree opening rear doors, the Metris includes all of the features you’d need while on the job. What’s more, the cabin leaves plenty of room for infotainment. The central 5.8-inch display lets you stream music, or connect with customers and team members via Bluetooth®* handsfree calling. To personalize your Metris Van’s interior, you can select any of the following optional features:
Heated front seats
Interior chrome accents (Passenger only)
Multi-functional steering wheel with a trip computer
LED cargo lighting (Cargo only)
4.2-inch pixel matrix display
Becker® MAP PILOT® navigation system
Full-height plastic paneling for the cargo area (Cargo only)
Stay Safe On the Job
During your daily work routine, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter uses its arsenal of safety features to safeguard you, your passengers, and cargo. Standard front, side, and window airbags (six on Cargo, eight on Passenger) cushion the cabin, while optional driver assists like a rearview camera, Blind Spot Assist, COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST®, and Lane Keeping Assist, keep you protected from every angle. Additional safety features for the Metris include:
Load-Adaptive ESP®: By braking the wheels individually, Load-Adaptive ESP® helps correct wheelspin, understeer, and oversteer.
ATTENTION ASSIST®: Once this driver attention monitor learns your driving habits, it can notify you when your drowsiness levels are on the rise.
Optional PARKTRONIC® with Active Parking Assist: Using front and rear parking sensors, this system detects objects close to your front and rear bumpers, and emits a warning tone to help prevent damage or an accident.
