The modifications have been made with a focus on achieving the Euro 6 emissions standard. With new optional extras ranging from a factory-fitted navigation system to a panoramic roof or reversing camera, Citan is now even more practical and individual than before. All new products and features are available to order from June onwards.
The Citan is now low-emission in compliance with Euro 6 – achieved without the use of SCR technology
As from June all Mercedes-Benz Citan Tourer models will comply with the Euro 6 emissions regulations as standard. For Citan van variants, Euro 6 compliance will become available later in 2015 as an option, well in advance of this becoming a legal obligation.
The new emissions standard has certainly made Citan clean for the future: all variants of Citan with diesel engine achieve Euro 6 through internal engine measures and a storage-type NOx catalytic converter.
BlueEFFICIENCY package and more torque for diesel with Euro 6
All Citan Tourer models come with the BlueEFFICIENCY package as standard. Among other features, this includes an ECO start/stop function and improved fuel consumption for the diesel models up to 65.7 mpg on the NEDC combined cycle. Citan achieves this outstanding consumption figure without compromising performance.
Progressing to Euro 6 actually increases maximum torque by 20 Nm for each diesel engine, to figures ranging between 200 Nm and 260 Nm. This translates into a noticeable rise in pulling power of around 10%. Output remains unchanged at between 75 hp and 110 hp.
Even more individual: practical new optional equipment
Thanks to new optional equipment, Citan is now even more individual. ‘Long’ Tourer models registered are available with a panoramic roof featuring split tilting skylights above the front seats if desired. The glass is tinted and each half can be opened manually and separately in the direction of travel. Over the rear, the new integral panorama skylight ensures that the interior is flooded with light.
A new navigation system developed specially for Citan points the way to the destination. The device is sized to the 1-DIN format and is operated via a touch-sensitive 87 mm (3.5-inch) screen. As well as GPS navigation with maps for Western Europe, the equipment includes a USB port, a micro SD card slot, AUX interface and Bluetooth. The DAB+ digital transmission standard ensures excellent radio reception. (DAB+ is expected to be available from Q4 2015).
The new optional reversing camera makes manoeuvres at low speed easier, thereby boosting safety. The camera is located by the licence plate holder on the tailgate or rear door. It is activated when reverse gear is engaged. The camera image is shown on the interior mirror and automatically dimmed if the light intensity is strong. Guide lines help with judging distances. Also new is the optional anti-theft alarm system for Citan as a panel van or crew van models. The remote control on the vehicle key is used to activate it.
New name: the Citan Traveliner is now the Citan Tourer
As well as new technical features, the Citan Traveliner has a new name: the Citan Tourer. This brings the nomenclature for the Citan in line with the new Vito
