Citroen Nemo Multispace: car-van multi-tasker

Nemo Multispace road test

Review: Ralph Morton

Citroen Nemo Multispace 1.4 HDi

What is it?

Citroen’s handy urban van kitted out as a passenger car with five seats. Ideal for light delivery work where a full commercial vehicle isn’t needed – such as florists and gardeners – but you also get the benefit of a car, too. Available with 1.4 petrol or 1.4 diesel engine.

What’s hot?

Boot torch is magnetic: usefully clamps to body
  • Rear seats fold down for flat cargo area
  • …with 2500 litre space when rear seats completely removed
  • Two side sliding doors for easy access
  • Cute, chunky looks
  • Comfortable seats with attractive trim…
  • …This doesn’t feel like a ‘cheap’ car made from a van
  • There’s electric windows, power steering, too
  • Diesel engine gives excellent mid-range acceleration…
  • …And miserly fuel consumption of 62.8mpg
  • With low emissions of 119g/km there’s £35 road tax
  • High-up seating position gives good view of the road
  • Precise gearchange from chunky gearlever
  • In car mode plenty of passenger space thanks to upright seats
  • In-out rear access easy with specific open and close door latches
  • Thoughtful touches like magnetic boot torch which clamps to bodywork…
  • …Useful for changing wheels in the dark

What’s not?

Business Van Manager Road Test Rating

Why have a van and a car when the Citroen Nemo Multispace does both? The Nemo Multispace makes perfect sense for non-VAT registered traders that need a small delivery vehicle during the weekday, but a car in the evenings and weekends. The Nemo is economical, spacious and lots of fun. A small business winner.
