Citroën reworks Nemo commercial van for 2011 (UK)

Citroën has revised its popular Nemo sub-compact van with the addition of a new diesel engine and stop/start.

While the previous 1.4i petrol engine remains, the 1.4HDi has been replaced with a 1.3HDi Fiat-sourced engine, which is more powerful and offers lower CO2 emissions. The new Euro 5 1.3HDi boosts power from 70bhp to 75bhp, with an increase in torque to 190Nm (140lb-ft), from 160Nm (118lb-ft).

The new Euro5 Nemo now increases combined fuel economy to 65.7mpg (4.2l/100km), while carbon emissions dip from 119g/km to 113g/km. A diesel particulate filter system (DPFS) is fitted as standard. When compared to the 1.4HDi, the new 1.3HDi will save an estimated £230, over three years and 20,000 miles.

The 1.4i petrol is also now Euro5 and offers better fuel economy and lower emissions over the previous variant. CO2 emissions drop from 164g/km to 148g/km while combined fuel economy is now rated at 44.1mpg (6.4l/100km). This engine is now primarily available for Ready to Run Dual Fuel (petrol/LPG) conversion.

Robert Handyside, Citroën’s Commercial Vehicle Operations Manager, said; “The new Euro 5 Nemo uses advanced technology very effectively to provide significant operational, financial, environmental and safety benefits. It now carries more, while using less fuel and also has significantly lower CO2 emissions. This is a van designed to suit today’s tough economic climate.”

The base ‘X’ Nemo starts at £9,165 for the 1.4i and £10,665 for the 1.3HDi diesel. Stand equipment includes driver’s airbag, flat-folding front passenger seat, height adjustable steering wheel, power steering, immobiliser, guide-me-home headlamps, trip computer, 12v power socket, and RDS stereo radio w/MP3 input.

Mid-spec LX starts at £11,365 and comes with remote central locking, height/reach adjustable steering wheel, electric front windows, electrically adjustable/heated door mirrors, height adjustable driver’s seat w/lumbar support and armrest, dash-mounted clip board, and nearside sliding door.

Range-topping Enterprise comes with air conditioning, Bluetooth, and rear parking sensors at £11,925.
