Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Sienna will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz Metris.

Convenience
With the Toyota Sienna, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz Metris, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Clearly, the Mercedes-Benz Metris is a better financial choice over the Toyota Sienna, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Mercedes-Benz Metris and the Toyota Sienna have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz Metris is much slimmer than the Toyota Sienna, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Mercedes-Benz Metris, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Sienna.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Mercedes-Benz Metris does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Sienna.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz Metris has the same turning radius as the Toyota Sienna, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Mercedes-Benz Metris is clearly the choice over the Toyota Sienna for pulling heavy loads. The Mercedes-Benz Metris has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Sienna.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Mercedes-Benz Metris seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Sienna. With the Mercedes-Benz Metris, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Sienna.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz Metris comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Sienna.
