At Rygor we are passionate about the products we sell and always take the time to gain real feedback from our customers on their vans and trucks. But we don’t stop there! We put our Mercedes-Benz vehicles to the test every day within our own business too, particularly when it comes to our parts delivery vans.
Not only do we have a huge range of parts in stock at all times, our team of parts drivers courier stock to our branches on a daily basis, as well as driving it straight to your door, to ensure we keep customer vehicle downtime to an absolute minimum, getting you back on the road quicker.
One particular parts delivery Citan van has really been put through its paces in the last few months, racking up more than 95,000 miles on the clock!
Dave, a Rygor parts delivery driver based at our Westbury branch, can travel up to 300 miles a day in his Citan van, which is why we went to him to find out how the Citan really performs on a daily basis.
“Without a doubt, the Citan is a fun van to drive. It’s well known for its excellent fuel economy which is an absolute necessity considering the number of miles I can do in a week, but it also has brilliant manoeuvrability which makes for a comfortable drive and of course, easy parking! That’s the advantage of a smaller vehicle.

“What I feel is one of the best features of the Citan though is the cage in the long wheel base version, which can swing round to create extra room at the front of the vehicle, so I can get larger products in the back when needed. You can also drop the passenger seat which allows you to carry an even larger load and with a pop-up roof space, there’s even more allowance for larger cargo when you need it. The Citan is the perfect small vehicle for distribution and means I can get almost any part in the back of the van and out to our customers, quickly.

“I really enjoy my job, and being on the road for the best part of the day, it’s a good job that I do! Mercedes-Benz prides itself on manufacturing high quality, safe vehicles, designed with the driver’s comfort in mind and the Citan certainly embodies those assets. I get to drive the Citan every day and I truly think it is an excellent van.”

So if you’re looking for a sleek and small van, with the option for more space when you need it, choose the Citan. Get in touch with your local Rygor Van Sales team today for more details.
