2021 Mercedes-Benz Metris gets new design and more optionsNovember 24, 2020
In the USA, the Mercedes-Benz Vito van is known as Metris. The model appeared in this regional market five years ago. Now the Germans are ready to offer their customers a van of the new model year.
The car not only received several cosmetic changes, but also acquired new equipment.
So, for example, in terms of appearance, the new product got a modified radiator grill, which retained the star logo in the center. And the interior of the car has new upholstery, and there are now new vents in the sporty style on the sides of the dashboard. Optionally, they can be styled using chrome – there is an additional Chrome Package for this.
The digital rearview mirror guarantees clear visibility in all conditions. You can switch to the traditional “mirror” view using a special button. Also, the updated van got the new Audio 30 and Audio 40 multimedia with a seven-inch touchscreen and support for smartphones and advanced security systems.
Another notable change is the 9-speed automatic transmission, which replaces the previous gearbox by seven steps. The engine is a two-liter 4-cylinder turbo engine producing 208 horses.
The new Metris will reach the leaders in America in the first half of 2021. The brand will offer the Americans a cargo van with two wheelbase options – 3.2-3.4 meters and a passenger van with a wheelbase of 3.2 meters.
Meanwhile, the 2021 Honda City hatchback made its debut in Thailand. The car boasts optimal dimensions, good roominess and striking design.
