Performance Strengths

Because they fit into different van segments, the Metris and Sprinter feature different performance strengths:

  • Mercedes-Benz Metris – The Metris is a flexible minivan that comes with a capable turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that makes 258 lb-ft of torque and gets up to 24 mpg highway, saving you money at the gas pump. It’s also smaller than larger utility vans, making it easier to move around in tight city streets.
  • Mercedes-Benz Sprinter – The Sprinter is a full-size van and serious workhorse that’s able to get up to 325 lb-ft of torque with an available turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine. And when you need to trailer big loads, the Sprinter can tow up to 7,500 pounds at a time.
