Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Unsurprisingly, the Citan will cost you more than its Kangoo sister, but it does of course have superior badge appeal.

In addition, it’s possible to get close to the 62.8mpg and 61.4mpg that the 94bhp and 114bhp models managed respectively in official tests.

We would suggest specifying the Appearance Pack to make the Citan look a little less basic – it adds body-coloured bumpers and door mirrors – along with the Comfort Pack.

The Mercedes Citan offers good fuel economy and competitive cargo space, but equipment feels a little basic and some rivals are better to drive.

  • Fuel-efficient engines
  • Precise steering
  • Mediocre ride and handling
  • Tech is a bit basic
