Mercedes-Benz Citan

The Mercedes-Benz Citan is a light van or mini MPV  introduced in 2012 by Mercedes-Benz  as a replacement for the Vaneo . The varied body styles of the Citan are due to the fact that the vehicle is aimed at both the passenger and light commercial vehicle markets. The Citan is the first Mercedes-Benz to be launched into the commercial vehicle market  since the Vito  in 1995. Now, the German brand has launched an extra long wheelbase Citan in its home country.

The Mercedes-Benz Citan measures 4705mm long and offers seating for up to seven people. It is spacious enough for passengers but also for carrying all kinds of stuff. The extra length enables the model to carry 300-400 liters (10.6-14.1 cubic feet) of luggage but the room can be expanded to up to 3500 liters (123.6 cubic feet) when the second row is folded flat and the third row is removed. So, it can definitely ensure the room needed in any business.

The Mercedes-Benz Citan is powered by a 1.5-liter (1,461cc) diesel engine that develops 90 PS (66 kW) and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque as well as 110 PS (81 kW) and 240 Nm (177 lb-ft) of torque. The extended wheelbase Citan is currently on sale and German pricing begins at €19,400 (excluding VAT). Although Mercedes hasn’t exactly had success with its minivans, the Citan aims at the alternate transport of people and material in commercial use, for use as a taxi and on the mixed-use for professional and private purposes. It might be appreciated, but only time will tell.
