Road trip review
Norfla71, 7/29/2017
Van is borrowed from my mother, who put just under 3,000 miles on it in about 6 months. Taking a trip with the family for 3 weeks, starting in Jacksonville, FL, going through DC, Hershey, Columbus and Dayton, Ohio, Dearborn, Michigan and back through NC before returning home; about , 2,000 miles roundtrip. First leg from Jax to DC, about 750 miles non-stop. After 4 hours needed to get a seat cushion for extra support. Being based on a cargo van none of the seats are very comfortable, even with the optional "drivers comfort" package; rear seats are atrocious (zero adjustability; about as utilitarian as church pews). However, both kids got their own seats for a change, so little complaining. Otherwise, dated infotainment worked for my needs, and navigation got us where we needed. Powertrain is excellent; much more useable power then expected. Engine and transmission work especially well together to get and keep van moving. Seem-less shifting if left alone; however, use the paddles to downshift and the trans gets confused for a second, not sure if it needs to be in higher or lower gear. Once sorted acceleration is great; cruise control is very responsive. We hit the usual DC area rush hour traffic and the van made it much easier to navigate, much less stress. MPG is impressive, getting about 25 overall on 87 octane, and have been running it the entire trip without issue. Anyone considering one of these keep the commercial roots in mind; any of the minivans or 3 row crossovers would be much better suited for comfort; however, for an overall package, you can't beat the overall utility. Finally, I got stuck in a dead end street, about 2 lanes wide. Not wanting to back up into a busy street I turned that van completely around without backing up; the turn circle is so tight you need to be mindful of curves. Backup camera could be better (limited field of vision, not very wide or deep behind) but the lines are helpful, and kept us from damage. For a commercial van it's quiet and comfortable; very smooth ride even on rough Maryland roads. I also like the ability to sweep out the floor and wipe off the optional MBtex vinyl seats.

ordered optional seats and they are very comfortable,fuel economy at 75 was 25.5 mpg,...cruises at 75 easily...7 speed trans. is a pleasure to drive.,u will not believe the power of the 4cy, perfect except four :needs to be 6" higher,would still fit in a garage and would help walking around...road noise in cargo van...will insulate....,needs to burn regular fuel instead of recomened 91 oct......50 to .70cents more per gal equals $9 to $12 more per fillup..,better milage,some 6cyl vans get 28 mpg
9 Metris vans and nothing but problems
MetrisOwner, 4/11/2018
We have dedicated a purchase order for 9 Metris vans so far, nothing but problems with them. All vans at 15k or less in miles. Transmission shifter failure, electronic issues, climate control venting and display issue, multi check engine lights, tires and alignment issues, incorrect maintenance alerts on display. Don't be fooled for the 15k mile service interval either, its not exactly true. We are also in a major metroplex and each MB dealer is terrible to deal with that we have tried so far. Only one good dealership so far out of state but under the warranty and part limitations. Would love to just park all of them at the dealer and walk away rather then continue to cringe for what is next to happen.
Nice vehicle
Joe Bush, 1/20/2018
I like it but the seats are not that comfortable for any long distance travel.

More about the 2017 Mercedes-Benz Metris

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz Metris is a midsize cargo van that is larger than other small cargo vans while offering similar city-friendly maneuverability. It can also be ordered as a passenger van if you'd rather use it for shuttling duties, an option that few of its rivals offer. As with most Mercedes vehicles, additional extras for the standard Passenger and Cargo models are spread throughout multiple options packages, as well as stand-alone upgrades. Worker versions of these two models are structured differently, with options bundled into a smaller number of packages.

The Metris is offered in two-seat Cargo and seven- or eight-seat Passenger models. Each is available in standard or Worker trim levels. All four combinations share the same basic features and robust turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is considerably more powerful than those in competing vans. Standard features are lacking compared to what you'll find in other Mercedes vehicles but are right in line by segment standards. These include automatic headlights, remote locking and unlocking, air-conditioning and Bluetooth.

Many more features are available and are grouped into different packages, depending on which configuration you start out with. Generally, Worker models have a lower base price and fewer choices than the standard models. Only a few exterior colors are available, and features are grouped into two to three pricey packages. Standard Passenger and Cargo models carry a higher sticker but offer a greater degree of customization, and additional features are grouped into a larger number of reasonably priced packages.

Although many extras are available for all Metris models, there are a few unique options for Passenger and Cargo models. Cargo versions can be ordered with 270-degree swing-out cargo doors (doors are flush with the body when fully open), cargo rails with anchors, a refrigeration prep package, and storage solutions via the MasterUpfitter program. Passenger models are eligible for power-sliding rear doors, automatic climate control and seating for seven or eight.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz Metris is slightly more expensive than competitors in Worker form, while standard models are dearer still. But the Metris is also larger than its contemporaries, the engine is more powerful, and its payload and towing capabilities are greater. Materials and build quality also feel superior to what you'll find in rivals. If you believe the Metris' benefits are worth the extra cost, use Edmunds' peerless shopping tools to find your perfect cargo or passenger van.
