Mercedes-Benz has recently announced a series of updates for the Citan which will be offered for sale starting next month.

The Mercedes-Benz Citan is getting ready to be introduced at dealerships with its new upgrades. According to the German based automaker, the model in question will be coming with a rearview camera, with a 3.5-inch display for the GPS navigation system, the “split tilting skyling” above the front seats for the long versions and several other goodies. The carmaker is also stating that the Citan crewbus has been now named the Citan Tourer, similar to the nomenclature used on the Vito.

“The new emissions standard has certainly made the Citan clean for the future: all variants of the Citan with diesel engine achieve Euro 6 simply through internal engine measures and a storage-type NOx catalytic converter. No complex SCR technology is necessary. This means that drivers will no longer have to worry about using AdBlue as an extra service fluid”, says the carmaker in its official press release.

Besides meeting the Euro 6 emission standards, the diesel engines is also getting the ECO start / stop function, which is lowering the fuel consumption to just 4.3 liters / 100 km. For each diesel engine, the torque is ranging between 200 Nm and 260 Nm of torque, 20 Nm more for each one, while the output is said to have remained unchanged at 75 HP (55 kW) and 110 HP (81 kW). The 2016 Mercedes-Benz Citan will be offered for sale starting from June but no pricing details have been announced at this time.
