Mercedes-Benz Citan is now EURO 6 compliant, more luxurious
Following numerous further developments, the Mercedes-Benz Citan has become even more attractive. The modifications have been made with a focus on progressing to the Euro 6 emissions standard. With new optional extras ranging from a double passenger seat and a factory-fitted navigation system to a skylight and reversing camera, the Citan is now even more practical and individual than before.
The new emissions standard has certainly made the Citan clean for the future: all variants of the Citan with diesel engine achieve Euro 6 simply through internal engine measures and a storage-type NOx catalytic converter. No complex SCR technology is necessary, so drivers of the Citan will no longer have to worry about using the extra service fluid AdBlue. The compact turbodiesel engine with a displacement of 1.5 l is available in three output categories from 55 kW (75 hp) through 66 kW (90 hp) to 81 kW (110 hp).
Thanks to new optional equipment, the Citan is now even more individual. “Long” models registered as passenger cars are available with a split tilting skylight above the front seats if desired. The glass is tinted and each half can be opened manually in the driving direction. The Citan panel van is made even more flexible with the new double passenger seat. Both seats have height-adjustable head restraints and three-point seat belts. If nobody is using these seats the backrests can be folded forward, with the centre backrest then acting as a writing surface if needed. There is a stowage compartment underneath the double seat, accessible from above by folding forward the single-piece seat cushion.
A new navigation system developed specially for the Citan points the way to the destination. The device has a 1-DIN form factor and is operated via a touch-sensitive 3.5-inch screen. As well as GPS navigation with map material for Europe, the equipment includes a USB port, a micro SD card slot, an AUX interface and Bluetooth with hands-free functionality. The DAB+ digital transmission standard ensures excellent radio reception.
