: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

What's New

The 2021 Mercedes-Benz Metris-Class benefits from several updates, including a nine-speed automatic transmission, a redesigned grille, upgraded seat fabric, and a larger touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Adaptive cruise control and a rearview camera mirror are available for the first time. The Metris is a midsize van designed primarily for commercial use.

Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz Metris-Class

The Metris comes in two configurations: Cargo Van and Passenger Van. The cargo version starts at $34,125 including destination, and the passenger model is priced from $38,335.

Engine Choices

Every Metris is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 208 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. A new nine-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters sends power to the rear wheels.

The Cargo Van is EPA-rated at 21 miles per gallon city, 24 mpg highway, and 22 combined. Estimates for the Passenger Van are slightly lower at 20/24/21 (city/highway/combined).

The Cargo Van has a payload capacity of 2,668 pounds, while the Passenger Van handles up to 2,150 pounds. Both models can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Cargo Van seats two and offers 183 cubic feet of cargo space with the standard 126-inch wheelbase. With the optional 135-inch wheelbase ($525), capacity increases to 199 cubic feet. The standard swing-out rear doors open up to 270 degrees to facilitate loading. Doors that open at 180 degrees are available at a credit of $124. Buyers can order a liftgate instead for $497.

The Passenger Van starts out with seating for seven in three rows and 180-degree rear doors. Seating for eight is available for $406. Either way, there are 37.4 cubic feet of cargo space. For a credit of $578, the Metris can be had in a two-row, five-passenger configuration with 97.3 cubic feet behind the rear seat. The liftgate remains available, but not the 270-degree doors or extended wheelbase.

Safety Features

The Cargo Van comes standard with a driver alertness monitor and crosswind stabilization assist. The $1,289 Safety Package adds blind-spot monitoring, a first aid kit, automatic wipers, a 4.2-inch driver information display, heated power side mirrors, and multifunction leather-wrapped steering wheel. Automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control are available together for $915. Individual options include lane keeping assist ($523) and a rearview camera mirror ($57).

The Passenger Van is available with a Premium Safety Package ($1,824) that includes everything in the Cargo Van's Safety Package, plus lane-keeping assist. A rearview camera mirror is a no-cost option, but adaptive cruise control and automatic braking aren't available yet on passenger models.


Every Metris now comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, an AM/FM receiver, front speakers, a USB port, Bluetooth, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Navigation is part of the $901 Driver Efficiency Package for the Passenger Van. It's a $400 standalone option on the Cargo Van.

CarsDirect Tip

If company image matters, we highly recommend the body-color bumpers and chrome grille on any 2021 Mercedes-Benz Metris-Class. They do wonders for the van's appearance for under $500.
