The 2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris probably won’t feature bigger changes. Introduced in 2015, this minivan is actually the North American version of the popular Vito van. It comes with pretty interesting design characteristics, different from the rest of the vans on this market. A straightforward van design is what you can expect from this model, but some of its versions offer a pretty long list of standard equipment, which takes comfort and convenience to a pretty high level. Another strong point of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris will be its powerful but also efficient engine, which makes this van more capable compared to the competition. Expect to see the new model late in the next year.
2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris will definitely continue in the same way. Count on a common van shape, decorated with the front end that closely resembles the current design language of the company’s passenger cars. The thing that separates this van from the competition is size. This one stands in the middle, between small and large vans. Such an approach provided numerous benefits compared to both classes of vans. On one side, the Metris offers significantly more interior/cargo space compared to smaller competitors. Also, you can count on superior performances and far better-equipped cabin. On the other side, it is significantly more maneuverable than full-size vans and offers superior driving experience. It comes in both cargo and passenger variants.
The interior is pretty straightforward. There is no fooling around, just a common van design, without too many flashy details and with only necessary equipment, at least when we are talking about base models. Seats are very comfortable and also offer a very good driving position.
2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris Configurations
The 2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris will continue in several variants. Basically, we can classify all these versions in two groups – passenger and cargo vans. Also, both of these types are available in super-affordable Worker versions. The Worker Cargo is the cheapest version of the van, free of any kind of convenience. It comes with very basic features, including a monochrome display. However, it is available with optional packages that can add things like automatic wipers, heated mirrors, a rearview camera, cruise control, roof rails etc.
The Worker Passenger models add a 5.8-inch touchscreen and a 9-speed audio system. It is available with more optional packages, so you can also add power sliding doors, simulated leather upholstery etc. Also, this version comes with visual upgrades like alloy wheels, body colored bumpers etc.
When it comes to standard Worker and Passenger models, pretty much all optional features from above are standard. When it comes to options, you can get a few more optional packages, including a very nice Safety package with systems like lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and automated parallel parking etc.
2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris Engine
This compartment is definitely one of the model’s strongest points. Compared to smaller competitors, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris will be way more powerful. You can on a familiar 2.0-liter turbo inline-four, which delivers 208 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The efficient engine comes in a pair with a 7-speed automatic transmission, which sends power to rear wheels and provides a pretty smooth ride. This van is pretty quick. It needs less than 8 seconds to reach 60 mph, definitely a class-leading result. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris will also continue to be a class-leader in terms of towing and hauling, which goes around 5.000 and 2.500 pounds, respectively.
2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris Release Date and Price
We expect to see the 2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris sometime late in the next year. It should go in a range between 26.000 and 40.000 dollars.
