Mercedes-Benz Minivan Brings Best Of SUVs, Vans

Posted on November 21, 2016 by - Also by this author - About the author

MORGANVILLE, N.J. --- For the last five years, the choices among limousine and livery vehicles have only grown more diverse. Now, an entirely new category of vehicle has enhanced the industry fleet mix, with the entry of the Mercedes-Benz Metris minivan. 

While it's been a staple of livery fleets in Europe for years as the Viano, the minivan has remained a curiosity in the American livery segment until now. Mercedes-Benz debuted the Metris at the International LCT Show in March as part of its U.S. rollout, and now First Class Customs Inc. shows the upfit potential.

A First Class, new, four-passenger 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris is available on Limoforsale.com for $57,900 at 25 miles.

You would be hard-pressed to determine whether the Metris is more like a SUV or a van. Limousine luxury level amenities include: Dual sliding doors, loaded chassis, four OEM leather recliners, upgraded trim, burl wood accents, suede headliner, upgraded audio with Bluetooth, 110, and USB power ports, movable seats, two custom OEM consoles with tray tables, and cupholders.

The bottom line for operators is it can carve out its own pricing category, either similar to a SUV or between a SUV and a strech or van, depending on the market. Heads up to budget-conscious C-suite clients who want more leg- and head-room.
