Metris Van Dimensions

Selecting a commercial or business van is an important decision. You want a van that meets your physical needs while representing a professional image. When you show up in a Mercedes-Benz Metris Van, it makes the statement that professionals are arriving to take care of business.

Since Mercedes-Benz offers both the Sprinter and Metris van models, customers are often curious as to the difference between the two vehicles. In short, the Sprinter is a bigger van, has a more powerful engine, and offers more body options. But when a sleeker, smaller vehicle is what your company needs, then the Mercedes-Benz Metris Van is the perfect answer.

If you are considering a decision to acquire a commercial or business van, it makes the best financial sense to consult the tri-state area’s Mercedes-Benz service and sales experts.

Below, we’ve provided Metris van dimensions and other information you need to make an informed decision.
