Modest tweaks for a new van

The Mercedes Citan is good enough for MacGyver, but the folks at KTW Tuning thought it could still use some work.

Looking tastefully restrained, the model is equipped with red brake calipers and attractive 18-inch alloy wheels with 225/40ZR18 92Y tires. There's also 10mm wheel spacers and lowering springs which promise to deliver improved driving dynamics.

The tuning kit is certainly modest, but thankfully so is the installation price of €1999 which includes VAT.

The new Mercedes-Benz Citan W 415, that sends the Swabians as a replacement for the Vaneo in three variations in the hotly contested "races" with other manufacturers, features a new high roof combination of Stuttgart, which introduction on the market at end of October 2012 caused a sensation.

The city van consists of the words City and Van, without use of two letters, the Citan - can be “tuned“at reasonable costs. This car has been appropriately and efficiently, showed by the KTW Tuning Company in Lower Saxony Hildesheim using presented example exceedingly vividly here. The vans missed only KTW Tuning-18-inch rims with five double spokes which were rather suitable for the scene.

On the appropriate XL tires there can be read the following side dimensions: 225/40ZR18 92Y. Through the additional integration of on-site 10-mm spacers Citan is quite wide now. The procedure which implied shortening of the KTW Tuning springs is reflected in driving dynamics features the rest of necessary functions. When the appreciative observer looks at the wheels, his eyes are caught by the red brake calipers.

It is therefore clear: just newly arrived Citan is now available not only in the official versions: Van, Mixto and Combi, but also in the version created by KTW tuning. The Hildesheimer asks 1999 Euro for installation including VAT for the complete conversion. There also included a good piece of advice into the price. The vehicle, by the way, has a mileage of around 3,000 km. Others prefer to let their hands off of things that can be built by others, with KTW Tuning it is certainly available today. The KTW Autohaus GmbH is the best known all over Europe for the sale of new and used Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles such as Vito, Viano, Sprinter and, of course, Citan.
