At Rygor we understand your safety is paramount. The Citan offers industry-leading safety features, including ADAPTIVE ESP® (Electronic Stability Program), Brake Assist and ABS fitted as standard. With short stopping distances and excellent response in wet conditions, you can have complete peace of mind with the Citan.

Adaptive ESP

ADAPTIVE ESP® is an innovative handling dynamics control system that supports drivers in critical driving conditions by improving the vehicle’s directional stability, taking its load into account. It actively intervenes in certain dangerous driving situations – such as impending risk of skidding – by applying a specific braking force to individual wheels, adjusts the engine power output to suit the situation and even dries the brake pads in wet conditions.

As well as aiding directional stability, ADAPTIVE ESP® combines the functions of the anti-lock braking system (ABS), acceleration skid control (ASR), electronic brake force distribution (EBD), Brake Assist, Rollover mitigation systems and the Start-off Assist system to make your CItan even safer.


The Citan comes with driver’s airbag as standard, while passenger airbag and thoraxbags are optional extras. Thoraxbags are positioned in the backrests and offer the driver and passenger enhanced torso protection in a side impact, the airbag deploys in hundredths of a second, protecting against injuries to the torso, before immediately deflating to allow easy exit or access by emergency services.

Light and rain sensor: for a clear view on things

Stay safer in a van that’s actively looking out for you. The optional light and rain sensor automatically modifies the lights and wiper frequency to the light and the weather conditions. As dusk is falling, or when entering a tunnel, the vehicle lights switch on automatically, while the first drops of rain activate the wipers, with speed intelligently adjusting to the intensity of the downpour.


Parking sensor – for ultimate city manoeuvrability

Bumps and dings increase the cost of motoring – and if left unattended, negatively affect perceptions of your business. The optional acoustic reversing aid with distance sensor makes very precise manoeuvring possible, facilitating parking in tight spots and helping to avoid potentially costly vehicle damage. The system, which operates on the echo sounding principle, alerts the driver when it recognises that space is becoming tight behind the vehicle, with a sound that becomes progressively louder as the obstacle gets closer.

Driving Experience

Benefit from the Citan’s manoeuvrability. Whether you are driving through the inner city streets or travelling down windy country lanes, you’ll notice the ease of driving and the Citan’s excellent fuel economy (62mpg) contributing to it’s affordable running costs.

Citan interior


It’s what’s on the inside that counts, and the Citan interior combines comfort with practicality to produce ideal driving conditions. The ergonomic design partnered with plenty of functional stowage space makes this one versatile van.


We know that a van often doubles up as a driver’s office during the working day, so in addition to standard equipment, the Citan includes a range of intelligent technology to help keep your business moving.

  • Bluetooth® connectivity to your mobile phone, for safe, hands-free calling
  • Stream audio from your phone or MP3 player
  • Connect – and recharge – your devices through the USB port
  • Air conditioning system means you control the climate inside your Citan
  • Diesel engines are fitted with a durable electric PTC heater booster to help defrost, demist and heat up your van faster
  • Optional reversing camera to aid manouverability
