Built on the same platform as the new Peugeot Boxer and Fiat Ducato, this is the heavily re-worked Citroen Relay

CITROEN will launch the new Relay at the CV Show this week.

There are big improvements in the cab, class-leading payloads, and up to 15% better fuel consumption compared with the old model.

The load space has been re-worked too, with square-sided load compartments, wide load decks and some of the lowest load deck heights in its class.

And doesn’t it look good! The new Citroen Relay incorporates a redesigned front end with large high-mounted headlights incorporating daytime running lights. It also includes a new grille and a multi-piece bumper to minimise accident damage and repair costs.

A comprehensive choice of variants will include:

  • Panel vans in 3, 3.3, 3.5 and 4-tonne GVW formats.
  • A choice of four panel van load lengths and three roof heights for load volumes of 8, 10, 13 and 17cu m.
  • Payloads from 1140kg-1995kg.
  • A choice of 3.5-and 4-tonne GVW chassis cabs.
  • A 3.5-tonne GVW chassis crew cab.
  • 3.5-tonne GVW back-to-back cab units for special low-loading, hi-cube conversions.
  • New Relay specialist tippers, dropsides and Luton vans.

Four engines are available in the new Citroen Relay range offering the choice of 110, 130 and 150 engines – all  mated to 6-speed gearboxes. The 130 engine is also available in e-HDi format with Stop & Start on selected versions.

The Citroen Relay 30 powered by the HDi 110hp engine 41.5mpg officially. For the same van with the Stop & Start-equipped e-HDi 130 engine, this  rises to 42.8mpg.

The Relay 35 L3H2 HDi 130 does 38.2mpg, which is increased to 39.2mpg with the e-HDi 130 engine.

All New Relay panel vans  up to 3.5-tonne  have sub-200g/km CO2 emissions, reducing to 175g/km for the Relay 30 e-HDi 130 powered model.
