Mercedes-Benz Citan is immediately recognizable as a Benz vehicle because of its characteristic brand look. Its chromed star, which provides the brand signature, is set against its prominent and robust radiator grille that comes with sporty perforated louvres. Moreover, the Citan's bold headlamps, as well as its emphasized V-shape to the bonnet, are impressively striking.
Additionally, the air intake’s trapezoidal shape emphasizes the car’s width as well as the powerful impression it makes. This feature is another one of Mercedes-Benz’s typical current style elements.
Also emphasizing width, the rear window’s angular lower edge mirrors the vertically mounted tail lights’ line. This particular detail on the new Citan reflects the expertise of Benz designers. Meanwhile, on variants that feature rear-end doors, their number plate is fixed on the left-hand side of the doors that is wider. As for the Citan models with a tailgate, their number plate is positioned on the center.
The new Mercedes-Benz Citan is an irresistible urban delivery van that sports a unique appearance and that smoothly fits into the portfolio alongside the Benz Sprinter and Vitovans.
Furthermore, the Citan’s distinctive interior is equipped with high-standard features. The driver and the front passenger both benefit from comfortable and firm padded seats. Meanwhile, the form-fitting backrests provide lateral support, ensuring not just comfort but also safety. And drawing on the typical design idiom of the brand, the seat cover is durable, easy to care, and made from skin-friendly and breathable fabric.
