The Mercedes-Benz Citan has been upgraded: the engines have more torque and are more cleaner and new options are available.
Since June, all Mercedes-Benz Citan registered as passenger cars comply as standard with the Euro 6 emissions regulation and all Citans registered as a commercial vehicle can also specify Euro 6 compliance as an option.
Without using the extra service fluid AdBlue, all 1.5 liter diesel engines meet the Euro 6 requirements. The maximum output remains the same – 75, 90 and 110 HP – but the maximum torque has increased up to figures ranging between 200 and 260 Nm.
The 1.2 liter petrol turbo from Citan 112 meets the Euro 6 regulation and has the same power of 114 HP, while the maximum torque has increased in kickdown mode from 175 Nm to 205 Nm. This extra torque is provided in the second, third and fourth gear for a maximum time of 20 seconds.
The Citan 112 is also available as an option with a 6G-DCT dual clutch transmission.
The list of options now includes a new multimedia system developed especially for the Citan. It has a 1-DIN form, is operated via a 3.5-inch touchscreen and includes GPS navigation, USB port, micro SD card slot, an AUX, Bluetooth and DAB+ digital transmission. The reversing camera is also on the optional list.
The long wheelbase Mercedes-Benz Citan crewbus has a new name – Citan Tourer – to bring the nomenclature for the Citan into line with the new Vito.
