Mercedes-Benz rolls out Citan small van in Europe


Mercedes-Benz has announced that it will now start taking orders for the Citan city van. According to the automaker, the Mercedes-Benz Citan is available to order and will initially be launched in two variants: a panel van and a tourer.

Additional variants will be launched along the way which include a long wheelbase and a Mixto version.


The Citan is touted as a family or utility vehicle that offers a small and compact appearance while giving its owners generous interior space. This space can be used in a diverse range of applications, especially in inner-city distribution operations.

Mercedes-Benz says that both the panel van and tourer trims will also be available in base and pro equipment trims.

On the pro trims, the door handles and sliding door strip covers are painted in the vehicle’s body color. Inside are LED light illumination, the Mercedes‑Benz audio system, a height-adjustable driver's seat, air-conditioning, and electric windows in the front with comfort function.

The panel van with the pro equipment trim will also have plastic flooring on the load compartment.

An interior design package will also be made available which adds high-quality equipment details like a high-gloss black trim element in the instrument panel support, chrome surrounds around the air vents of the dashboard and around the speakers, as well as chrome interior door handles.

The Mercedes-Benz Citan’s tourer variant comes with two sliding doors as standard while the panel van only comes with one. An additional sliding door can be installed for a nominal cost.

Besides the closed partition wall between the cab and the load compartment, the Citan Panel Van can also be ordered with a folding version, said the automaker.


A MBUX multimedia system will be offered in the Mercedes-Benz Citan which gives the small city van a seven-inch touchscreen audio head unit with smartphone integration for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Navigation through the MBUX multimedia system can be had as an optional add-on that offers rapid hard-drive navigation, thanks to the "Hey Mercedes" voice assistant.

Other optional extras include the LED high-performance headlamps, the Citan panel van active safety package, the parking package, and the rear parking package.

The Citan panel van active safety package adds safety features like active brake assist, active lane-keeping assist, speed limit assist, and blind-spot assist.

The parking package adds active parking assist with Parktronic while the rear parking package offers additional ultrasonic sensors and a camera in the handle of the tailgate or rear doors.

Mercedes-Benz says that deliveries of the Citan on the first markets can be expected by the end of October with prices ranging from €19,348 to €26,481.
