TCC’s Bottom Line
Roomier inside than you might expect, the Ford Transit Connect makes a terrific cargo hauler and a decent option for those looking for a minivan alternative. The Mercedes-Benz Metris hits the sweet spot of the commercial van segment as it's just a bit bigger than the Ford Transit Connect, but it's a lot smaller than the big Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. The 2017 Nissan NV200 makes a good budget cargo van, but if you've got more fleet money to spend, rivals offer increased capability.
