The next generation of CitroŽn Relay vans has been revealed, with
the new commercial vehicles boasting a huge number of standout features.
Fans of the series will notice many alterations to the new Relay van
when compared to its predecessor. For one, the exterior of the
commercial vehicle catches the eye thanks to the addition of large,
high-mounted headlights, a prominent front grille and a chevron design.
Inside the reimagined CitroŽn Relay, one of the most appealing
features is that the van’s cabin has been designed with the driver’s
and passenger’s comfort in mind. Those behind the wheel can enjoy the
sophistication of the dashboard layout, for example, while the crew are
sure to feel relaxed sat on a dual passenger seat that comes
incorporated with a drop-down desk unit.
Electric windows, door mirrors that are electrically operated and
heated, as well as DAB radio all also come as standard on the
next-generation Relay van.
Getting from A to B with the new CitroŽn Relay should be a joyful
green occasion too, seeing as the van’s entry-level HDi 110 engine is
capable of achieving a fuel economy figure of 41.5mpg — this increases
to 42.8mpg for drivers who opt for an e-HDi 130 engine with Stop &
Those who need to carry goods inside their commercial vehicle on a
regular basis will also be pleased to hear that the next-generation
Relay can boast a payload from 1140kg to a magnificent 1995kg.
Jeremy Smith, the Head of Commercial Vehicles & Business Sector
Operations at CitroŽn, summarised the appeal of the French
manufacturer’s new van by stating: “When it goes on sale in the third
quarter this year, the new Relay will build upon the success of its
predecessor which, even at the end of its production life, is still
delivering high UK sales volumes.
“We expect the wide choice of new Relay variants — all offering
class-leading load carrying practicality and low cost of operation,
coupled with even higher standards of equipment — will increase its
popularity with both national fleets and small and medium enterprise

However, anyone hoping to acquire an impressive fresh set of wheels for
the summer months should take heed of Mr Smith’s mention of the current
Relay van still being popular across the UK.
What’s more, these vehicles can be purchased at very affordable prices right now from such used commercial vehicle retailers as Van Monster. This includes a selection of 13 reg vehicles that barely have any miles on the clock or second hand vans.
