A new extra-long Traveliner variant of the Mercedes-Benz Citan will soon be available to order with seven seats.
Mercedes claims the van 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.
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.
Available to order from August 2014, the new model 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.
