A new extra-long Traveliner variant of the Mercedes-Benz Citan urban delivery van will soon be available to order, with a total of seven seats, offering outstanding flexibility.
The new variant is ideal for alternating between carrying crew and cargo in commercial applications, use as a taxi, or for a mix of professional and private use: as a highly flexible Traveliner with up to seven seats, the Citan is able to cater to a multitude of different requirements.
Based on the extra-long version of the Citan (length 4,705 mm), with a permissible gross vehicle weight of 2.2 t, the extra-long Traveliner offers a new third seat row, consisting of two individual seats.
These are independently adjustable fore-and-aft by 130 mm, and can be individually folded down, or removed as required. They can be easily accessed once the seats in the middle row have been folded down. Passengers in the rear row have additional stowage facilities in the side wall panels.
Depending on the position of the individual seats, the load space behind them will take between 300 and 400 litres of luggage. Removing the seats in the third row increases the cargo capacity of Citan to 2,200 l. And if the middle row of three seats is folded down too, the load space is enlarged again to 3,500 l.
The Citan is highly practical, as highlighted by the standard equipment for the extra-long Traveliner, which includes a flexible cover for the load compartment, as well as load-securing rings in the floor for securing the cargo when the seats are folded down or removed.
Available to order from August 2014 in the UK, the new model variant offers a choice of two engine output ratings, as either the Citan 109 CDI (90 hp) or the Citan 111 CDI (110 hp), with prices starting from £17,810 plus VAT.
The new vehicle will be on display at Mercedes-Benz VanExperience LIVE, an invite-only van operator event taking place during the next two weeks for more than 1,800 van operators. To book a place at VanExperience LIVE, operators can contact their local Mercedes-Benz Van dealer.
