has long been a key player on the light commercial vehicle (LCV)
market. The constant match between CitroŽn’s range and market trends
enabled the Marque to take 10.2% of the European market (26 countries)
and the number-three spot in 2005.
To give an idea of the
importance of the LCV business for the Marque, 1 CitroŽn in five sold
worldwide is an LCV and 1 LCV in 10 sold in Europe is a CitroŽn.
Positioned between the Berlingo and the new Jumper, the new CitroŽn Jumpy is an excellent addition to the LCV range.
After a successful 11-year run with the previous edition, CitroŽn has
developed the new Jumpy with a view to conquering market share. The
vehicle offers new features to appeal to a broader customer base.
The new Jumpy is packed with technological innovations and equipment
dedicated to passenger and driver comfort and safety. The new vehicle
offers many more combinations in terms of volume, payload and load
length. This versatility is designed to appeal to increasingly
The new Jumpy features:
• a bigger payload: the
new version of the CitroŽn Jumpy has a much bigger payload, ranging
from 1,000 kg to 1,200 kg, versus a range of 815 kg to 900 kg on the
• more load volume: the new Jumpy
combines two lengths with two wheelbases and two body heights. The load
volume has been increased significantly to a range of 5 m3 to 7 m3, versus 4 m3 to 5 m3
for the previous Jumpy. The interior load length of the new Jumpy has
also been increased by 12 cm to 16 cm depending on the version, and can
be extended a further 65 cm with the optional stowage tunnel for long
loads in vans with a partition.
• a broad range of body styles and trims. The
new version of Jumpy consists of two main families. The first comprises
standard panel and window vans, as well as flatbed cabs for bodywork
conversions. The second consists of combi vans for transporting people.
combi van family is intended for small-business people whose work
involves transporting people, and for consumers who are looking for a
spacious, functional vehicle. The combi van family offers three trim
and equipment levels and a five-seater and a nine-seater version. The
top two trim levels for the combi van will be marketed under the name
Atlante with a monogram on the vehicle, except in Germany and
right-hand-drive countries. The interior of these versions features a
carpeted fl oor and upholstered door panels.
• status-enhancing, dynamic styling. On
the outside, the tough, modern design of the front end features a gutsy
radiator grille and oversized bumper for extra protection against
shocks. The rear has been designed for easy loading.
At the same
time, the layout of the driving position, soundproofing and ergonomic
design, ensure that the cabin satisfies the requirements of the most
demanding business users and consumers.
• a wide choice of engines. There
is a choice of three diesel engines: the 1.6 HDi 90 (66 kW), the 2.0
HDi 120 (88 kW), and the 2.0 HDi 140 (100 kW) fitted with a particulate
filter. All three engines are mated to manual gearboxes, with six
speeds in the case of the last two. One petrol engine, the 143 bhp (103
kW) 2.0i, is offered, with a manual five-speed gearbox.
The new Jumpy can also be fitted with a wide array of options rarely seen on the LCV market, such as pneumatic rear suspension and automatic wipers and headlights.
With ABS and EBS fitted as standard, Jumpy also offers excellent road handling.
