Citan Sport scores company car role for Caledonian director

I’ve written before about the success the Mercedes-Benz Citan is having in the small van market, especially with SMEs who value the combination of style, quality and status it offers.

The director of a Scottish civil engineering company has now taken things one step further and opted for a Citan Sport as his company car.

Drew Matthews, who is director of Livingston-based civil engineering firm Caledonian Group, recently chose a long-bodied Citan Sport 11 CDI as his personal vehicle.

The new van was ordered alongside 2 new 5.0t Sprinter CDI vans and nine long and extra-long Citan 109 CDI vans for his crews to use.

Commenting on his choice, Mr Matthews said:

“It’s the ideal vehicle for me – practical, with a good load space, but also very comfortable, and a joy to drive. The air-conditioned cab is really well appointed and the Bluetooth system means I can communicate with staff and customers while I’m on the move.”

The Citan Sport is a specced-up model with considerable kerb and driver appeal. It includes a host of extras such as 16-inch alloy wheels, a chrome grille, sidebar and tailgate trims, daytime running lights and colour-coded bumpers and door mirrors. Among the interior enhancements, meanwhile, are a leather steering wheel, special ‘Sport’ mats, air-conditioning and Bluetooth connectivity.

All of the new vans were fitted with safety systems including rear-view cameras, audible reversing warnings, beacon bars and Class 1 reflective markings by the supplying dealer.
