Citroen has launched a new drivetrain option on the SpaceTourer MPV. The van’s least powerful 118bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre diesel engine can now be had with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Prices start at £36,620 for the entry-level model, with first deliveries expected in October. 

Citroen claims the new engine and gearbox combination brings a significant improvement to the SpaceTourer’s towing capacity. With the new drivetrain, the SpaceTourer’s braked towing weight increases to 2.3 tonnes – a half-tonne improvement over the manual-equipped 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel base-model.

The new powertrain is only available in standard wheelbase form and is offered with two of the SpaceTourer’s existing four trim levels. Consumer-focussed Feel models come as standard with automatic headlights, front fog lamps, rear privacy glass, cruise control, automatic dual-zone air-conditioning and a seven-inch infotainment system.

Citroen also offers the SpaceTourer in its corporate-focussed Business specification. It’s designed to act as an economical shuttle vehicle and features a hard-wearing TPO plastic floor, seating for up to nine and air-conditioning. Prices start from £36,250.

Optional extras for both models include Xenon headlights (£600), a panoramic glass roof (£500), a detachable tow bar (£300) and headlight washer jets (£100). Citroen’s GripControl customisable traction control system is also available with a set of 17-inch alloy wheels for £1,160.
