Double clutch

dynamite for Citan


Mercedes-Benz Citan

MERCEDES-BENZ Vans has launched a line-up of dual-clutch automatic transmission versions of its popular Citan model.

It means selected Citan 112 variants will be up for grabs with the new 6G-DCT automatic transmission from next month.

Citan panel van and Tourer models with the 112 petrol engine can benefit from the double clutch transmission, which combines the comfort of a six-speed automatic transmission with the driving dynamics of a manual gearbox in a compact and light-weight design.

The six-speed dual-clutch transmission consists of two sub-transmissions, each with its own clutch.

As one transmits drive to the wheels, the other pre-selects the next gear, allowing for near seamless gear changes without loss of traction.

Prices are from £15,820, excluding VAT, for the 112 panel van long 6G-DCT and £17,900 for the Tourer long variant.

Both have an official Combine fuel figure of 44.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 144g/km.

Mercedes-Benz Vans is the sales and marketing organisation responsible for all Daimler Van products and services in Britain.

In 2015, Mercedes-Benz Vans celebrated its best ever year in the UK, with 36,212 vehicles registered - a sixth consecutive year of growth.
