Mid to late October arrival expected for first mid-sized Mercedes-Benz van to hit New England, Mercedes Benz of Westwood reports
Westwood, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/25/2015 -- Mercedes Benz of Westwood announced that it will be accepting some of the region's first shipments of the Mercedes Metris mid-sized van in October. Packing the legendary quality and capability of the full-sized Mercedes Sprinter van into a more agile and compact form, the new 2016 Metris will appeal to those looking for a hard-working van with improved maneuverability. The new Metris mid-sized van will be available to buyers at Mercedes Benz of Westwood in October, marking the first appearance of the eagerly awaited vehicle in New England.
"The Mercedes Sprinter is an incredible vehicle, delivering so much reliability and cargo-carrying capacity to so many owners," Mercedes Benz of Westwood James Tully said, "Now that level of quality is going to be available for the first time in a more compact, mid-sized van. We're proud to be introducing the Metris to New England in October and confident that the new van is going to impress our customers. It is the S Class of the Mid-Size Van segment in the US"
Although thought of by many in the United States as a primarily luxury-oriented manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz has a long history of producing no-nonsense, work-focused vehicles. Whether that means powerful tractor-trailers or the venerable Sprinter van, Mercedes-Benz vehicles have been mainstays for commercial and industrial users throughout Europe and much of the rest of the world for decades.
In recent years, buyers in the United States have started to catch on, too. After the 2001 U.S. launch of the company's Sprinter van under the Freightliner mark and a subsequent 2007 generational update, Mercedes-Benz took brand ownership of the vehicle in 2010. Since then, the Sprinter has quickly become a highly regarded alternative to traditionally popular full-sized vans from American makers like Ford and Dodge.
With U.S. buyers already appreciating the reliability, value, and capability of the full-sized Sprinter van, the arrival of the mid-sized Metris has been eagerly anticipated. Its ancestors having already proved their bona fides overseas for nearly two decades under labels like "Vito" and "Vitoria," the 2016 Metris has received rave early reviews, as with a recent 5-star rating from Car and Driver magazine.
Mercedes Benz of Westwood will be a particularly appropriate launching point for the New England introduction of the new Mercedes Metris Van. At a website known as "Sprinter Guy Boston," the dealership's representatives have been educating New England residents about the advantages of the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter for over a year. Visitors to that site can now also find plenty of information there about the upcoming 2016 Mercedes-Benz Metris van. Mercedes Benz of Westwood expects to have the new Metris available to buy starting in mid to late October.
