The second-generation Mercedes-Benz Citan combines compact exterior dimensions with a generous amount of space. Thanks to a number of different versions and practical equipment details, it offers plenty of different usage possibilities and convenient loading. Cabin configurations consist of a panel van and passenger tourer for now but more variants such as a long wheelbase and Mixto version will become available at a later stage.
The second-generation Mercedes-Benz Citan is available with up to two sliding doors. These offer a wide opening on both sides of the vehicle measuring 615 mm with a load compartment opening height of 1 059 mm.
The Tourer configuration boasts a tailgate featuring a rear window but as an alternative, it is also available with rear doors. The rear bench seat can be folded down in the ratio of 1:3 to 2:3 and numerous stowage spaces and compartments facilitate everyday use of the second-generation Mercedes-Benz Citan.
A plethora of engine options are available for the Second-generation Mercedes-Benz Citan. The panel van range boasts firm’s turbodiesel 1,5-litre four-cylinder engine with three states of tune.
