Metris Performance: Handling Features

The Metris Van uses a series of intelligent systems to improve handling on Vallejo and Benicia roads. Here’s two examples:

  • Crosswind Assist: At highway speeds, this feature uses targeted breaking to prevent strong, side-blowing winds from shifting the Metris Van off course.
  • Load-Adaptive Electronic Stability Program (ESP®): If wheel-spin, understeer, or oversteer is detected, this system intervenes automatically by breaking individual wheels to correct the van’s course.
