The Citan Tourer is designed for individuals that want to get more out of life, business, and leisure time.

The Citan variants is the Tourer 112; a five-seater crew vehicle with folding rear seat bench, sliding doors on each side and with a long wheelbase.
As it is the case with every Mercedes-Benz vehicle, safety plays a big role in the new Citan. It comes with the Electronic Stability Programme, as standard, which takes the vehicle load into consideration. This innovative dynamic handling control system in the new Citan combines the functions of the anti-locking braking system, which counters over- and understeer, and Traction Control System. It also includes acceleration skid control and drive and braking torque control.

The Citan focuses on functionality as it is all about meeting the challenges faced in day-to-day operations. Functional features include a large glove compartment, a stowage compartment between the front seats and a useful overhead stowage compartment across the entire width of the windscreen to accommodate all those items that drivers keep on hand on a daily basis. The practical, standard equipment for the new Citan includes a height-adjustable steering wheel, central locking with remote control and exterior mirrors which can be adjusted from inside. The Citan also sets a good example when it comes to fuel consumption and performance as the engine line-up has the right solution for every requirement profile. It is available only with front-wheel drive, and a high-torque petrol engine as standard for the local market.
