New Citroën Dispatch Van
Citroen Dispatch Van Review - Medium Sized Van That Can Do It All
The new Citroen Dispatch van offers a wealth of features designed to support your business and meet all your needs. Key benefits include a competitive payload, comfort, impressive performance, safety and practicality. This van is available in three sizes: XS, M and XL and comes in three trim levels: X Pro, Enterprise Pro and Driver Pro.
You can expect a smooth, comfortable and refined driving experience from the Dispatch. The latest version has major improvements to the ride and handling compared to the previous version. The latest model has a lower centre of gravity due to the lower position of the engine. This has reduced body roll in the bends and increased firmness on the road. The suspension has also been designed to deal well with bumps, especially with a higher payload. This will help keep your business equipment safe and allow you to enjoy your journeys to and from work.
There is a choice of four engines available for the Dispatch which are from 100 to 180bhp. These are equipped with Citroens BlueHDI technology, which all meet the latest Euro 6.2 standards. The new generation of Euro 6 BlueHDI diesel engines is known for their ''Best in Class'' levels of consumption and CO2 emissions. Alongside this, you can expect low running costs with its impressive MPG figures of up to 53mpg, making it one of the leaders in its class. No matter which engine you choose, you can expect exceptional economy and maximum driving pleasure. The table below displays the power outputs for the new Citroen Dispatch:
|Citroen Dispatch 1499cc||Power outputs|
|BlueHDI 100 S&S||102hp / 270Nm|

You can choose between the 8-speed automatic transmission (EAT8) or a 6-speed manual gearbox to suit your business requirements and driving needs. The automatic features Quickshift technology, which provides fast and fluid gear changes which are ideal for main roads and in-town driving.
