Performance & drive

What it’s like to drive, and how quiet it is

The steering is one of the best features of the Citan, because it’s light yet responsive. However, in other respects the drive is a little rough around the edges.

Mercedes has tuned the Citan to its own preferences rather than relying on Renault’s suspension settings, but the result still isn’t as dynamic or smooth-riding as the Ford Transit Connect or the Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Partner and Vauxhall Combo sister vans.
