What Makes The Metris Van Perfect for Families

When looking for your next vehicle, whether your family is growing or you simply need more space for your Utah County Commutes, your choices may at some point come down to vans. Many makes offer their own vans (including the Dodge Caravan and the Chrysler Pacifica–which have cluttered the streets by now!), but we’d like to propose another contender: the Mercedes-Benz Metris Passenger Van.

Here are five reasons why the Metris is the best choice for your family:

1) Superior Comfort

Let’s begin with the most important part: your family will be very comfortable when driving and riding in the Metris thanks to vinyl seats that can adjust easily and a large trunk that ensures you never have to worry about cargo in your foot space.

Numerous entertainment features, such as wireless streaming to an SD card slot, also help make sure that you and your passengers never get bored on the road–perfect for those scenic Utah national park visits.

2) Quality Engine

Mercedes-Benz is the epitome of German Engineering for a reason. Buy this van and you will get a quality vehicle that is sure to last you for a long time to come, which makes it ideal for Utah terrains.

A 7-speed automatic transmission allows for a smooth ride both on busy city streets and highways, while 208 horsepower can transport you, your family, and plenty of luggage without slowing down at all. You will get all of that with 24 miles per gallon (highway)–a remarkable number for a van this size!

3) Maximum Safety

When you are looking for a family vehicle, safety comes first. Fortunately, the Metris surpasses even lofty aspirations. It’s been called a “Safety NBA Allstar” by Car and Driver Magazine, thanks to a number of features specifically designed to keep all passengers safe.

The car is designed to assist drivers on the road, too, thanks to Parking Assist, Blind spot assist, and Crosswind Assist technology. Load-adaptive stability control, as well as eight individual airbags, are sure to keep every one of your passengers safe and sound.

4) Ample Space

This is where, especially compared to other van alternatives, the Mercedes-Benz Metris Passenger Van truly shines! Like its competitors, it offers third-row seating for eight–but the individual seats are much more spacious than you might expect.

In fact, you won’t find a bench in this family van. Instead, you will find six individual back seats in addition to the driver and passenger seats that ensure personal space for each of your family members and passengers. That, in addition to a large trunk even without folding down the back row, ensures a comfortable ride under ALL conditions. When the weather outside is frightful, or suddenly changes as Utah weather is known to do, rest assured your Metris will keep you all safe and comfortable.

5) Surprising Affordability

Given all of the above features and the prestigious Mercedes-Benz name (and of course, the Mercedes-Benz star on the front and back of the Metris), you might expect to pay out of your nose for the Metris Passenger Van. In fact, that’s far from the truth. The German car maker offers its base model for no more than $33,000, which is cheaper than the comparable (and smaller, much more common, and average-looking) Chrysler Pacifica.

Even with the addition of other features, you will end up with a quality vehicle for a surprisingly low cost. Your growing family’s finances are important and this van won’t break the bank.

In short, your family should at least test drive the Metris when looking for a vehicle that can do it ALL.

Its comfort, quality, safety, space, and affordability make it the perfect vehicle, both for larger families and smaller ones that want to enjoy extra cargo space.
