Mercedes Benz Citan


Mercedes finally unveils its new Citan van in full production trim.

The new urban van fulfils a broad range of commercial applications. Based on a panel van, this urban van is available in three different lengths: Compact, Long, Extra-long. Three high-torque, turbodiesel direct-injection engines with outputs from 75hp (55kW) to 110hp (81kW) and a nippy, supercharged petrol engine generating 115 hp (84kW) cover all standard requirements. It’s also designed and equipped better than almost all vans in the market.

The interior is designed around the driver with soft padded seats and high quality materials. But at the end of the day it’s a van and it has to be good at carrying stuff around.

The Mercedes-Benz Citan will be unveiled to the public for the first time at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show in Hanover in September 2012.

Details of features

Comprehensive safety equipment

As is the case with every Mercedes-Benz vehicle, safety plays a big role in the new Citan. The urban van comes with the Electronic Stability Program ADAPTIVE ESP® as standard, which takes the vehicle load into consideration. This innovative dynamic handling control system in the new Citan combines the functions of the anti-locking braking system ABS®, VDC® (Vehicle Dynamic Control) which counters over- and understeer, and TCS® (Traction Control System). It also includes ASR® (Acceleration Skid Control) and drive and braking torque control.

Characteristic Mercedes-Benz Appearance

The Mercedes-Benz Citan is instantly recognisable as a Mercedes-Benz thanks to the vehicle’s characteristic brand look. The Citan is the first model in the Mercedes-Benz van range to feature our new family appearance. Providing the brand signature, the chromed star is self-assuredly set against the prominent, robust radiator grille with three sporty perforated louvres. The Mercedes-Benz Citan’s bold headlamps and the pronounced V-shape to the bonnet with its clearly defined edges are equally striking.

The trapezoidal shape of the air intake in the bumper emphasises width and the powerful impression made by the Citan. Again, this feature is one of the brand’s typical style elements at the present time, from the latest Mercedes-Benz cars in the compact class through to the new Actros.

Equipped to a high standard for ergonomics and comfort

Just as distinctive, the interior of the new Mercedes-Benz Citan is equipped to a high standard. Both the driver and front passenger benefit from equally firm, comfortably padded seats. The form-fitting shape of the backrests in particular provides lateral support, thereby ensuring comfort and safety. Drawing on the brand’s typical design, the fabric cover is breathable, durable and easy to care for.

As powerful and striking as the exterior of the new Citan, the instrument panel is designed around the driver. The surface has a leather-like grain for an attractive look and feel.

Drivers of any other Mercedes-Benz will immediately feel at home in the cockpit of the new Citan and not just due to the familiar star on the steering wheel: the combination switches, gearknob, and switches on the instrument panel all meet Mercedes-Benz’s usual standards for the driver’s area in terms of layout, look and function. Trim over the glove compartment enhances the interior further.
