2016 Metris Cargo vs. 2016 Nissan NV vs. 2016 Chevrolet City Express
2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris
2016 Nissan NV
When you think of the ideal commercial van, chances are you think of a hefty payload capacity, durable performance, and reliable safety features. Here at RBM of Alpharetta near Johns Creek, Georgia, you’ll find a wide selection of the latest 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris Vans. For your convenience, we’ve stacked the Metris up against two formidable competitors in the commercial van class: the 2016 Nissan NV and the 2016 Chevrolet City Express.
2016 Metris Cargo vs. 2016 Nissan NV Cargo
The Metris Cargo and Nissan NV Cargo models come standard with a 208-hp 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and a 261-hp 4.0L V6 engine, respectively. While the NV’s base engine is slightly stronger, the Metris boasts a 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission, which is smoother and more fuel-efficient than the NV’s 5-speed automatic. In fact, the 2016 Metris Cargo Van earned an EPA-estimated 21 mpg city/24 mpg highway rating. Due to the NV lineup’s GVWR of 8,500+ pounds, the EPA doesn’t require fuel economy ratings. However, the base NV Cargo scored an unimpressive Car and Driver Observed rating of 11 mpg.
Convenience and Technology
Standard Safety Equipment
Whether you’re transporting passengers, tools, or goods, you want nothing less than reliable safety systems assisting you every step of the way. Both the Cargo and Passenger configurations for the Metris and NV include the basics, such as comprehensive airbags, emergency braking assist, traction and stability control, and more. The Metris, however, takes driver and passenger peace of mind a step further by integrating ATTENTION ASSIST® – a high-tech program that alerts drivers of potentially dangerous driving behaviors. Crosswind Assist and Load-Adaptive ESP® also come standard, and work to keep your Metris Van stabilized at all times.
2016 Metris Cargo vs. 2016 Chevrolet City Express
2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris
2016 Chevy City Express
Both the 2016 Metris Cargo Van and 2016 Chevrolet City Express come equipped with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. The City Express’s output of 131 hp and 139 lb-ft of torque is overshadowed by the Metris’s specs: 208 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Paired with the City Express’s 2.0L engine is a CVT, which plays a large role in its favorable economy ratings. All in all, the City Express is engineered for cost-effective fuel-efficiency, but falls short when it comes to engine oomph. The Metris Vans’ fuel economy ratings are a tad lower, but both configurations offer a happy medium between fuel-efficiency and rugged power.
Interior Dimensions and Capabilities
Available Driver Assistance Tech
As commercial vehicles, both the Metris and City Express offer up a reassuring set of passive and active safety features. However, a quick comparison of the two shows the Metris’s standard arsenal of security features and driver assistance equipment puts it ahead of the race yet again. While a rearview camera and parking assist feature are optional on both the Metris and City Express, the Metris offers a lengthier list of available safety features, which includes Lane Keeping Assist, PARKTRONIC®, Blind Spot Assist, and COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST®. Alpharetta and Johns Creek businesses are free to customize their Metris Cargo or Passenger Vans for greater safety across the board.
