The What Van? Road Test: Citroen Dispatch (2019)

Date: Wednesday, October 28, 2020


Rear Dr

Load bay

Twin rear doors, which can be swung through 90° – and through 180° if you release the stays – plus a sliding door on each side of the body gives access to the cargo area. The cab and the load bay can be locked and unlocked separately from behind the steering wheel, and all the doors lock automatically when the light commercial is in motion.

Six tie-down points are provided and a full-height steel bulkhead should protect the occupants of the cab if unsecured items slide forwards.

Under the Moduwork banner, a flap in the bottom of the bulkhead directly behind the outboard passenger seat allows extra-long items to be slid forwards into the three-seater cab. 

The outboard seat can be folded upwards and backwards against the bulkhead to create extra carrying space. Doing so reveals an additional tie-down ring in the passenger seat footwell.

Hardboard panels on the doors and above the wheel boxes provide some defence against scratches and scrapes. The load area will require timbering out properly, however, in order to protect it against more significant damage, and that will include a tailored timber cover for the unprotected load bed.

The Enterprise and Driver models can both be ordered with an optional Easy Entry Pack (not fitted to our demonstrator) that includes keyless entry and start, twin electric sliding side doors with hands-free opening and an electronically lockable fuel filler cap – yours for a hefty £1,125 if you feel you really want or need it.
