2014 Mercedes Citan Gets New Renault Engines [Video]
There's the Citan 111 CDI, which uses the most powerful version of Renault's four-cylinder 1.5-liter diesel engine, already available on the Citan. But the big surprise, the Citan 112, which uses the 1.2-liter TCe engine used by cars like the Megane and even the Dacia Duster and Lodgy.
The 111 CDI is rated at 109 hp (110 PS) and 240 Nm of maximum torque. It's only available with a six-speed automatic gearbox and claims fuel efficiency of 4.4 L/100km thanks to standard stop/start. German orders are already being taken at €17,130 plus tax.
The 112 model is rated at 112 hp or 114 PS and should have 190 Nm of torque (no official figures released). It gets much poorer fuel economy at 6.1 L/100km, but of course there's an upside. The model is much cheaper to buy at €15,810 plus tax.
The Citan light van and mini MPV models are basically the same as Renault's Kangoo, thanks to a partnership between Daimler and the Renault-NIssan Alliance. Both models are actually built together as well, in the norther French town of Maubeuge.
