Citroen Dispatch Review

​Citroen’s third generation Dispatch is an important vehicle for the Citroen brand and one not to miss if you are looking for a medium sized van.

How does it drive

The latest generation of the Citroen Dispatch is vastly improved, narrowing the gap to the Transit Custom and the VW Transporter. The engine in the Dispatch is straightforward and great for all types of workloads - the entry level 95 BHP 1.6 litre BlueHDi unit is perfect for light loads and local driving. The 1.6 is also available in the more robust 115 BHP. For heavier loads and longer journeys, the 2.0 litre model gives you more pulling power and is available in 120,150 and 180 BHP. For multi-drop or the slightly lazier driver, the 180 unit comes in the latest and efficient EAT6 Auto box.

This latest reincarnation of the Citroen Dispatch is far more comfortable and quieter to drive than the previous model. PSA’s EMP2 platform and stiffer suspension offers a car-like feel. Overall, the Dispatch is great around corners and soaks up all the typical UK road imperfections. For more traction and better driving in extreme conditions, Citroen offer the option of Grip Control Traction System which will assist in slippery off highway and wintery conditions.
