Mercedes-Benz Metris Van

New Mercedes-Benz Metris cargo vanThe new Mercedes-Benz Metris van had its North American premiere at the recent Work Truck Show, though it’s been around in European and other markets as the Vito for some time.

The Metris is a “right-sized” vehicle with what the manufacturer calls “a unique combination of full-size van cargo capacity and payload but with the dimensions designed to thrive in urban environments.” It’s said to fit into underground parking garages while offering up to 67% more payload and over 40% more cargo volume than other mid-size commercial vans currently available here.

The cargo van’s Canadian MSRP starts at $33,900 while the passenger van’s starts at $37,900.
