The new Relay interior is better than the previous version, but it still feels rather functional. Adding a small touchscreen monitor (optional) does, however, make it feel more modern inside.
Until release this new model underwent a robust testing programme. Citroen performed over 4million kilometres of test driving and 500,000 door shuts to bring the new parts through their paces.
One of the increasing range of Citroen van models (which now includes the Nemo, Berlingo, Relay and C2 Enterprise Van), the Dispatch is a mid-size panel van that boasts good usability and load room while taking up little space on the lane. In the Dispatch line, there are a number of different sizes offers with up to 7m3 load space; or in the Combi and Crew Van versions, seating up to 9 people. Ride and handling are consistent and refined, though body roll limits the cornering speed in the higher roof line models. Despite being one of a large van collection, the Dispatch continues to stand out as a reliable and practical workhorse.
In all conditions the loading and unloading operations are simple with two sliding side doors. The diameter of each sliding side door varies between 1,075 m and 1,250 m, and between 1,485 m and 1,755 m in height, depending on the edition.
The reversing camera and parking sensors are also good choices, making it less of a hassle to reverse into a tight spot. The reversing camera screen shows two yellow lines illustrating the rear doors, so you can park up without fear that the doors will not be unlocked at the back.
Citroën Relay is also a guide in convenience, promoting body and mind health for optimal working conditions. On board, you’ll find all the choices for executing your tasks.
The Relay has one of the largest load bays in this van class, at 1.870 mm between partitions and 1.422 mm between the arches of the inner wheels. This means it can suit a flat Europallet and you can push it into the side door which is 1.250 mm long as well. The reinforced doors should help avoid damage if the driver of the forklift crosses the gap, too.
Citroën Relay is targeted at businesses that hold equipment and staff on all sorts of sites which can often be difficult to reach. More safety on all silhouettes with black wheel arches, defensive plate under the motor and aprons at the front and back. Grip Control and Hill Assist Control improved traction combined with multi-season tyres. Comfort features including front air conditioning and ventilated glove box, handsfree Bluetooth and USB port, cruise control and speed limiter, and a clipboard mounted on central windshield.
If you can stretch financially, going up from standard trim to Enterprise specification is well worthwhile. It includes air conditioning, speed regulating cruise control, 5-inch colour and steering wheel monitor touchscreen audio set, rear parking sensors and a perimeter warning.
The smallest H1L1 van offers the lowest running costs in the series, although this makes it the most economical with a stop-start system fitted to the 130hp engine. With S&S, Citroen guarantees emissions of 154g / km for the 130hp, rising to 158g / km either for the 110hp or the optional 130hp engine in the smallest body. Depending on platform, the 160hp engine is only available in larger Relay versions, where it develops 163-173g / km.
