Citroën UK has added a new engine and gearbox option to the Dispatch range. The Dispatch BlueHDi 120 S&S EAT8 eight-speed automatic M (Medium length) in popular ‘Enterprise’ specification will be available as a Panel Van, or a Crew Van with three additional second row seats. Prices start from £26,580 (Basic MRRP*). The new versions are available to order now, with production starting later this month.



Citroën UK has introduced two new models to its Dispatch range, in the form of new BlueHDi 120 S&S EAT8 automatic 1400 Panel and Crew Vans. These latest additions to the Dispatch range are powered by the brand’s efficient 1,997cc BlueHDi diesel engine developing 122hp (90kW) at 3,750rpm, with maximum torque of 340Nm (250lb.ft) at 1,750rpm. In addition, stop and start (S&S) technology is fitted as standard to optimise efficiency.

The EAT8 eight-speed fully automatic transmission offers a range of advantages for drivers, as well as van operators. Drivers in stop/start city traffic can completely concentrate on the road ahead and leave the gear selection to the transmission system. With eight speeds to choose from, the transmission will shift to the best gear for the driving conditions, helping to minimise fuel consumption and emissions. The EAT8 ‘box can also detect when additional engine braking is needed and change down as necessary to help control vehicle speed.

The smooth automatic transmission can be of help if fragile loads are being carried, by helping to eliminate uneven or jerky gear changes. Van operators can also benefit from reduced mechanical wear, particularly in city driving, where constant and uneven gear changing can cause excessive clutch wear. For increased driver comfort, all versions equipped with the new engine and gearbox benefit from steering column mounted paddles for manual changes, should they be required.

The new BlueHDi 120 S&S EAT8 auto drivetrain will be available with the popular, and very well appointed, ‘Enterprise’ trim in both Panel Van and Crew Van M (Medium length) models. Dispatch Enterprise trim provides comprehensive specification, including: air conditioning, rear parking sensors, 7-inch colour touchscreen with Citroën Connect DAB radio, Bluetooth®, Apple Car Play™, Android Auto, automatic lights and automatic windscreen wipers.

Production of the new models begins later this month, with first deliveries anticipated from November 2019.
