2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris vs. Sprinter

When you think of Mercedes-Benz, you probably think of luxury. You should. But in addition to the brand's stunning sedans, sports cars, cabriolets, and SUVs, you'll also find the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. As one of most recognized names in the commercial van class, the Sprinter has long been a staple for businesses, both small and large. But beginning this October, the Sprinter won't be the lone Mercedes-Benz van in the lineup, as Mercedes-Benz introduces the mid-size Mercedes-Benz Metris. As a smaller alternative to the Sprinter, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris will represent a small, more affordable, and ultimately, easier to drive option.

While the Sprinter has earned its reputation based on its swift handling and maneuverability, the size of the Metris lends itself to a more familiar experience behind the wheel. Like the Sprinter, the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris will be available in both passenger and cargo configurations, meaning it will be a great asset for families or transportation companies.

Which Mercedes-Benz Van is right for you?

Although the 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris and Sprinter are both considered commercial vans, they serve the needs of very different owners. On the passenger configuration side of things, the larger Mercedes-Benz Sprinter can seat up to 12 passengers where the Metris makes space for up to seven. Of course, in both configurations, space is more abundant than it would be in your typical mainstream vehicle. 

Unsurprisingly, the cargo models tell a similar story, but the seats are replaced with wide open space for storage and hauling. The base Sprinter Cargo model features 530 cubic feet of space, which is great in certain scenarios. But drivers who don't need such abundant space will appreciate the large, yet convenient 186 cubic feet of space. 

The 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris is expected to join the Sprinter on the Loeber Motors lot in the fall of 2015, so you can start your own side-by-side comparison.
