Mercedes-Benz revamps urban delivery van with Euro 6, extra torque

 

Mercedes-Benz has updated its Citan range, with new Euro 6 emissions standard diesel engine models, new torque in the petrol variants, and a new name.

According to the manufacturer, the diesel models do not need SCR technology to achieve the Euro 6 emissions limit.

"All variants of the Citan with diesel engine achieve Euro 6 simply through internal engine measures and a storage-type NOx catalytic converter," Mercedes-Benz says.

"No complex SCR technology is necessary, so drivers of the Citan will no longer have to worry about using the extra service fluid AdBlue.

"The compact turbodiesel engine with a displacement of 1.5 l is available in three output categories from 55kW (75hp) through 66kW (90hp) to 81kW (110hp)."

The diesel models are available with Benz’s BlueEFFICIENCY package, which offers an ECO start/stop function, a lower fuel consumption of 4.3L/100km, and an extra 20Nm of torque.

 The new petrol Citan 112 range responds faster than previous versions, Benz says, and will be available with a 6G-DCT dual clutch transmission.

"While the output of the engine remains the same at 84 kW (114hp), in kickdown mode the engine now boosts torque in the short term to 205 rather than 175Nm," Mercedes-Benz says.

"This extra torque is provided in the second, third and fourth gear for a maximum of 20 seconds.

"It helps in situations such as overtaking, thus making it a further safety factor."

The new transmission features two clutches, one for the even-number gears and one for the odd, allowing the vehicle to ‘pre-select’ the next gear and quickly move between.

A crawl function and a start-assist system are also on offer.

Aesthetically, the hand brake lever has been updated and a handle has been added to the inside of the tailgate.

Mercedes-Benz says optional extras include a double passenger seat, factory-fitted navigation system, a skylight and a reversing camera.
