New diesel engine added to Citroën SpaceTourer range

Improved emissions and economy figures, with two consumer trims and a business version to choose from

The Citroën SpaceTourer MPV range has been bolstered with the introduction of an efficient new diesel engine to replace two previous units.

The new Blue HDi 140 unit offers CO2 emissions reductions of up to 11g/km against outgoing models and is available with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission.

The new engine replaces the BlueHDi 120 engine with automatic transmission, although the lower-output model is still available with a manual gearbox. The top-level BlueHDI 180 engine remains available, and there is also the recently-announced e-SpaceTourer electric model.

Despite being cleaner, the new engine brings more power than the BlueHDi 120 diesel it replaces – up 20hp – and, when equipped with a six-speed manual, replaces the older BlueHDi 150 diesel engine too.

The Citroën SpaceTourer is available in two trim levels for consumers, as well as fleet-oriented specification. There will also be a choice of two vehicle lengths – Medium and XL (which offers an extra 35cm).

  • Feel comes with eight seats as standard with six sets of ISOFIX mounting points for child seats, among a variety of other included features.
  • Flair trim brings black leather seat trim, a panoramic sunroof and electric sliding doors with foot-operated sensors. It also adds a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring and a 180-degree colour reversing camera.
  • A Business trim level is aimed at corporate customers. It features up to nine seats as standard, a hard-wearing plastic floor and air conditioning. This version is only available in the shorter Medium length body.

Sliding and removable second and third rows give a flexible storage solution, providing up to 4,554 litres of boot space in an XL-length model with the seats removed.

Prices for the new Citroën SpaceTourer fitted with the 140 BlueHDi diesel engine start from £40,885 in medium-length Feel specification with an automatix transmission. All versions are available to order now, with first deliveries expected at the end of the year.
