From October 2019 production, Citroën UK will introduce a new engine and gearbox option – 2.0L BlueHDi 120 S&S EAT8 – to the SpaceTourer MPV. This new powertrain combines the French brand’s 2.0L BlueHDi 120 S&S diesel engine with the EAT8, 8-speed automatic gearbox.
Citroën says that the new model, which is priced at £1,700 above the 1.5L BlueHDi 120 S&S 6-speed manual in equivalent trim, offers “real value to customers looking for an automatic gearbox”.
In addition, the new 2.0L BlueHDi 120 EAT8 brings with it a significant improvement in braked trailer weight over and above the 1.5L BlueHDi 120 manual. Versions with the new engine and gearbox combination will be capable of towing up to 2.3 tonnes.
SpaceTourer is available in two distinct ranges, designed with either families or business users in mind. The family oriented ‘Feel’ and ‘Flair’ trim levels both come with eight seats as standard and family-friendly features such as rail mounted rear seats, a child observation mirror and six sets of Isofix mounting points with top tethers. In terms of size, both trims are available in Medium and XL, with the latter offering an additional 35cm of overall length.
‘Flair’ models are specified with standard features such as: black leather seat trim; driver and front passenger seats with individual armrest, electric adjustment, heating and massage function; panoramic glass sunroof; and twin ‘hands free’ electric sliding rear doors (with foot-operated remote sensors). ‘Flair’ trim also provides features including head-up display, blind spot monitoring, 180 degree colour reversing camera, keyless entry and start, Citroën Connect Nav and an uprated HiFi pack.
Citroën SpaceTourer is also available for corporate customers in the form of ‘Business’ and ‘Business Lounge’ trim levels. ‘Business’ trim provides up to nine seats as standard, a hard wearing TPO plastic floor and air conditioning.
SpaceTourer ‘Business Lounge’ versions feature most of the upscale features from the ‘Flair’ trim, but with a more business orientated seating configuration in rows two and three. As standard, ‘Business Lounge’ derivatives feature four armchairs in the rear cabin complete with Isofix mounting points, longitudinal and back rest angle adjustment, and the seats in row two can be mounted forward or rear facing. A rail-mounted table can be added at extra cost to convert the SpaceTourer ‘Business Lounge’ into a mobile meeting room.
Citroën SpaceTourer MPV boasts outstanding boot space and modularity. Sliding and removable row two and three seats allow you to tailor SpaceTourer to suit all your load capacity needs, with luggage space up to a cavernous 4554-litres (when loaded to the roof in an XL length vehicle with row two and three seats removed).
The updated range can be ordered now, with first deliveries commencing from late October 2019.
