Both the Mercedes-Benz Metris and the Toyota Sienna have similar Destination Charges.

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.

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.
