Here's how YOU rate the medium-sized Citan van…
Would you believe us if we told you what the best reasons to drive a Mercedes-Benz Citan are? Well, perhaps you might if it came directly from some of our customers. Vanarama's Laura Day reveals why the Citan is a top-class van, straight from the horse's mouth!
A smart-looking and practically-sized van – the Citan is great if you're looking for a small van that's big enough to fit all of your tools in, but still compact enough to handle those tight, town lanes. Want to find out more? Here's what our customers think…
"Stylish and well built."
There's a reason why people choose to drive a Mercedes van, and that's because put simply – the badge appeal sells. After all, who doesn't want to drive a top-of-the-range van?
Mercedes vans have become very popular among companies that want to convey a more upmarket image. Turning up to your latest job in a snazzy van can sometimes make all the difference to customers, when it comes to good first impressions. If you really want to be considered a professional and smart-looking company, look no further…the Citan is your perfect match.
"Very economical and a pleasure to drive."
The Citan was designed to combine low fuel consumption with high level performance, and there's no doubt that it delivers. The 90bhp 109 CDI engine is best suited to short-distance work, while still offering good performance and economy.
Impressively refined and rather car-like, acceleration in the Citan is rather perky. In fact, driving this compact van feels more like driving a car! Its practical size means it is ideal for city driving too.
"Bigger and more comfortable than expected."
It's true! For a small van, this Citan has got BIG plans. Whatever your trade may be, there's plenty of room in the back for all your tools. The barn doors are great too because they're easy and quick to open and shut.
And, one of the first things you notice when you get behind the wheel of the Citan is just how comfortable it is. The adjustable driver and passenger seats offer plenty of support and leg room, and the location of the gear stick is another feature that improves the driving experience, because it falls perfectly to hand.
Choosing your wheels
It's true: a van is a toolbox and a necessity for any tradesman, but that doesn't mean that you can't still drive the very best, nonetheless!
Whatever your needs, choosing a Citan allows you to benefit from its compact size and manoeuvrability. And, while commercial vehicles are chosen primarily for their running costs and reliability, but it's hard to ignore the sheen that the Mercedes badge provides.
