- More comfort and better looks
- £2,000 more than standard Citan
- Only available in long wheelbase
Mercedes-Benz has launched a sporty derivative of its small panel van, the Mercedes-Benz Citan. Like the larger Vito Sport, the Citan Sport boasts a high specification list, including alloy wheels, sports mats, and air conditioning.
The new specification will be aimed at owner-drivers wanting to stand out from the crowd and requiring more comfort. Mercedes-Benz says that as there’s no need to ‘spec-up’ a standard model, the Citan Sport is a more cost effective route to a premium and distinctive small van.
On the outside, the Citan Sport receives a choice of six metallic paints, colour coded bumpers, wing mirrors, 16-inch alloys, daytime running lights and chrome trim on the grille, sidebars and tailgate. On the inside, air conditioning, Sport-badged floor mats and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.
Only long wheelbase variants of the Citan Sport will be available, although there is a choice of a 89bhp (109CDi) or 109bhp (111CDi). Prices start from £16,490 plus VAT for the 109CDi, which is £2,000 more than the base model, and rises to £17,255 plus VAT for the more powerful 111CDi.
