Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Transit-250 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz Metris.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Transit-250 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz Metris. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Transit-250 is much higher than that for the Mercedes-Benz Metris.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Transit-250 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz Metris, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Ford Transit-250 and the Mercedes-Benz Metris are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Ford Transit-250 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz Metris, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
