Metris vs. Transit: Performance & Handling

If you’re looking for better fuel efficiency and smooth shifting on the Cook County roadways, the Mercedes-Benz Metris outshines the Ford Transit. See the difference for yourself:  

  • Fuel Economy: While the Transit offers greater horsepower and torque, its EPA-estimated 14 city/19 mpg rating doesn’t measure up to the Metris Van’s astounding 21 city/24 mpg highway rating.
  • Transmission: With a broader gear range, the 7G-TRONIC® connected to Metris Van’s engine offers smoother, more intuitive handling than the Transit’s 6-speed automatic transmission.

Metris vs. Transit: Pricing

Meanwhile, to experience the capabilities of the Ford Transit, business owners better be prepared to spend more. Pricing for both models is as follows:

  • 2019 Mercedes-Benz Metris: Starting at $26,570* MSRP
  • 2019 Ford Transit: Starting at $33,135 MSRP

Metris vs. Transit: Utility & Safety Features

On the Ford Transit, you’ll find 16-inch steel wheels, a hinged passenger-side door (low-roof configurations only), and air conditioning. The Mercedes-Benz Metris, however, introduces a little extra convenience and peace of mind into your workday with the following exclusive features:

  • 17-inch steel wheels
  • Multi-function steering wheel
  • Sliding door on the right
  • Daytime running lamps
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
  • Mud and snow tires
  • Optional partition with sliding door package

While the Transit includes a rearview camera, the Metris counters with Crosswind Assist, ATTENTION ASSIST®, Rescue AssistSM, and a Load-Adaptive Electronic Stability Program — all standard.
