The Metris Passenger offers an optional collision warning system, which detects an impending crash through forward mounted sensors and flashes a bright light and sounds a loud, distinctive tone to warn the driver to brake or maneuver immediately to avoid a collision. The system also pre-charges the brakes to begin deceleration more quickly. The Voyager doesn't offer a collision warning system.

The Metris Passenger’s optional lane departure warning system alerts a temporarily inattentive driver when the vehicle begins to leave its lane. The Voyager doesn’t offer a lane departure warning system.

The Metris Passenger offers optional Parktronic™ to help warn the driver about vehicles, pedestrians or other obstacles behind or in front of their vehicle. The Voyager doesn’t offer a front parking aid.

The Metris Passenger’s driver alert monitor detects an inattentive driver then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The Voyager doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the Metris Passenger and the Voyager have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height-adjustable front shoulder belts, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras and available blind spot warning systems.

The Mercedes Metris Passenger weighs 520 pounds more than the Chrysler Voyager. The NHTSA advises that heavier vehicles are much safer in collisions than their significantly lighter counterparts.

To reliably power the ignition and other systems and to recharge the battery, the Metris Passenger has a standard 190-amp alternator. The Voyager’s 180-amp alternator isn’t as powerful.

The battery on the Metris Passenger is under the seat, which protects it from hot underhood temperatures that can degrade battery life. By keeping the Metris Passenger’s battery 20 to 30 degrees cooler, its life is increased by years. The Voyager’s battery is in the hot engine compartment.

Regenerative brakes improve the Metris Passenger’s fuel efficiency by converting inertia back into energy instead of wasting it. The Voyager doesn’t offer a regenerative braking system.

For more complete vehicle control the Metris Passenger has Touch Shift, with the available convenience of an automatic transmission and the complete gear control of a manual transmission without the inconvenience of a clutch. Touch Shift allows the driver to eliminate unwanted shifts and maximize engine braking by down shifting while cornering. The Voyager doesn’t offer a transmission that allows complete gear control.

The Metris Passenger’s tires provide better handling because they have a lower 55 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Voyager’s standard 65 series tires.

The Metris Passenger has a standard full size spare tire so a flat doesn’t interrupt your work or a trip. A full size spare isn’t available on the Voyager, it requires you to depend on roadside assistance and your vehicle will have to be towed.

The Metris Passenger’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Voyager doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Metris Passenger’s wheelbase is 4.4 inches longer than on the Voyager (126 inches vs. 121.6 inches).

For better maneuverability, the Metris Passenger’s turning circle is 3.3 feet tighter than the Voyager’s (36.4 feet vs. 39.7 feet).

The engine in the Metris Passenger is mounted longitudinally (North-South), instead of sideways, as in the Voyager. This makes it easier to service and maintain, because there are no rear spark plugs and the accessory belts are in front.

J.D. Power and Associates surveys of service recipients show that Mercedes service is better than Chrysler. J.D. Power ranks Mercedes fifth in service department satisfaction. With a 65% lower rating, Chrysler is ranked 26th.

The Metris Passenger’s front power windows open or close fully with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside the car. The Voyager’s standard passenger windows don’t open or close automatically. The Voyager LX’s rear windows don’t close automatically.

If the front windows are left open on the Metris Passenger the driver can close them from a distance using the remote (remote must be aimed at door sensor). On a hot day the driver can also lower the windows the same way. The driver of the Voyager can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Metris Passenger’s optional wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield. The Voyager’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are optional on the Metris Passenger to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The Voyager doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

The Metris Passenger has a standard automatic headlight on/off feature. When the ignition is on, the headlights automatically turn on at dusk and off after dawn. The Voyager has an automatic headlight on/off feature standard only on the LX.

The Metris Passenger’s standard automatic temperature control maintains the temperature you set to maintain a consistent, comfortable environment. The Voyager doesn’t offer automatic air-conditioning.

The Metris Passenger’s optional Active Parking Assist can parallel park or back into a parking spot by itself, with the driver only controlling speed with the brake pedal. The Voyager doesn’t offer an automated parking system.
