2018 Ram ProMaster City vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris
Finding the right vehicle for every job can be very important for commercial shoppers. This is especially true for those looking in the commercial van market. There are several attractive options on the road, and many of them offer different value. In this 2018 Ram ProMaster City vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris comparison, the two vehicles are not exactly comparable. While the 2018 ProMaster City is a true compact vehicle with class leading payload and interior space in its segment, the Mercedes-Benz option actually falls in its own midsize class. This may be important for businesses that need that balance of interior, but may not be worth the extra investment (both initially and when it comes to fuel economy) that the Mercedes-Benz model requires.
Depending on the needs of a business, either of these vans may offer value, but we like the size of the Ram van, and the up to 28 mpg in highway driving that the 2018 ProMaster City can offer drivers.

Drive Options and Features on the 2018 Ram ProMaster City
While the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris offers more interior space and a higher payload capacity, the 2018 Ram ProMaster City can bring other advantages. It comes standard with a five-inch touchscreen display, which also includes Bluetooth connectivity and a rearview camera. While the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris also comes standard with a rearview camera, it does not offer touchscreen capabilities. The Ram compact van in this 2018 Ram ProMaster City vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris comparison also comes with front-wheel drive, which sets it apart from the rear-wheel drive on the Mercedes-Benz model. While there are advantages to both driving styles, front-wheel drive can offer drivers more control when it comes to ice and snow, which may give this small van the edge in northern areas like Minnesota.
Even though the 2018 Mercedes-Benz Metris is an intriguing midsize van option, we like the best-in-class features and many upfitting options that are available with the compact 2018 Ram ProMaster City.
