Buyer’s guide to the Citroen Dispatch van

Buyer’s guide to the Citroen Dispatch van

Here’s what you need to know about Citroen’s popular mid-size van.

Citroen is one of the best-known firms around when it comes to commercial vehicles, and the mid-size Dispatch is one of the best models in its class – rivalling the likes of the Volkswagen Transporter and Ford Transit Custom.

The latest model feels more car-like than ever thanks to a shared platform with various Peugeot and Citroen cars, while offering superb comfort and a supremely efficient line-up of engines.

Here’s what else you need to know about the Citroen Dispatch

What engines are available?

With diesel engines still dominating in the commercial vehicle world, it’s only models that you’ll be filling up from the black pump that are found in the Dispatch currently.

There are plenty to choose from, though, with the range beginning with a 1.5-litre unit available with outputs of 99bhp or 118bhp. The former comes as standard with a six-speed manual transmission, though with the latter you’re also able to choose a smooth eight-speed automatic gearbox.

If you’re looking for something more powerful, Citroen delivers with an excellent 2.0-litre diesel unit, which is available with outputs of 148bhp and 178bhp. The less powerful unit features a manual gearbox, though the latter makes do with the automatic.

Later in 2020, Citroen is also set to unveil a new all-electric version of the Dispatch, which is set to appeal to those predominantly driving around cities.

What trim levels are available?

Plenty of trim options are available with the Dispatch, with equipment highlights and prices as follows.

X – from £21,975

Standard kit includes remote locking, cruise control with a programable speed limiter, an adjustable driver’s seat, Bluetooth, a DAB radio, electric front windows and electrically operated and heated door mirrors.

Enterprise – from £23,330

This grade brings useful features such as rear parking sensors and automatic lights and wipers.

Driver – from £28,760

This high-spec version adds front parking sensors, as well as a reversing camera and blind-spot monitoring. Electric folding door mirrors also feature, along with body-coloured bumpers and metallic paint to bring additional style to the model.

What about personalisation?

Personalisation isn’t what vans are traditionally known for, but buyers do have plenty of choice in what they want from their Dispatch.

For starters buyers can choose three different body styles – including the XS, M and XL – each adding additional practicality.

There are plenty of colour options on offer, too, including a dark blue, orange and the typical white that’s the free colour.

There aren’t a huge number of conventional optional extras on offer, but dual-zone climate control (£300) and grip control offering additional traction (£650) could be worthy add-ons.
