Citroen is making a new engine and gearbox combination available with its Dispatch medium van.

This involves an eight-speed automatic gearbox, which was previously only available with the range-topping 180hp 2.0-litre diesel engine, now also being paired with the engine in its 122hp form.

The new powertrain, which comes with stop/start technology as standard, is being offered only in the medium length Dispatch with the Enterprise trim level, but with a choice of panel van or crew van bodystyles.

Standard equipment with Enterprise trim includes air conditioning, rear parking sensors, automatic headlights, automatic windscreen wipers, and a 7in colour touchscreen with DAB radio, Bluetooth, Apple Carplay and Android Auto.

Prices for Dispatch vans with the new powertrain, excluding VAT, are £26,580 for the panel van and £29,500 for the crew van.

Orders are open now, with the first deliveries expected in November.
