From £6.95 A Day: The Mercedes-Benz Citan
MILTON KEYNES, UNITED KINGDOM – Jan 8, 2013: The new Citan compact van marks the entry of Mercedes-Benz into the small van market. Packed with clever features, an efficient diesel engine in three power outputs and a choice of three wheelbases, it’s backed up by competitive finance packages allowing customers to run a Citan for as little as £6.95 per day. Or, if you prefer, the equivalent of two bacon rolls.
This, in a van capable of carrying loads of up to 735 kg and a volume of up to 3.8 m3, that sets new benchmarks in efficiency in its class and features the high standards of quality and customer care expected of a Mercedes-Benz.
Available to order now, prices for the Citan start from as little as £13,095 for the 108 CDI Compact. Alternatively, the 109 CDI Compact Trade Edition can be purchased for £6.95 per day, or £48.75 per week, equating to 35-monthly payments of £195 following a one-off payment deposit of £585 based on a fixed-term Agility finance offer. Purchased outright, the 109 CDI Compact Trade Edition can be ordered for £13,645. The monthly payment-led finance is based on a Mercedes-Benz Agility Contract Purchase package.
Contract Hire customers also benefit from highly-competive rates - the Citan 109 CDI Compact “Trade Edition” is available with a one-off deposit of £630, followed by 35 monthly payments of £210.
Steve Bridge, Van Sales and Marketing Director for Mercedes-Benz UK, said: “The new Citan is certainly creating a stir within the van industry. Right from the day we released the first sketches the level of interest was and has been relentless.
“We have a lot of interest across the entire Citan model range and we’re now in a position as a manufacturer to offer a compact van, capable of carrying up to 735 kg with a small footprint, which is ideal for both retail and business customers.
“Having the backing and support of the established Mercedes-Benz Commercial Vehicle Dealer Network brings our customers huge benefits too. It also gives us the assurance of knowing that the customers owning and operating experience will be class-leading and the envy of the industry.
“With a number of finance options available I have great confidence in the fact that the new Citan will not only be an attractive vehicle but a trusted partner and most of all, an affordable business asset.”
