The Dispatch has long been Citroen's best selling van in the medium sized van sector. Mercedes Vitos, Renault Trafics and Ford Transit Custom models tend to rule the van world. Taking on this lot isn't something you'd want to do single-handed, so at the turn of the century, Citroen chose to share development of the second generation Expert with both Peugeot and Fiat, whose Expert and Scudo LCVs were pretty much identical and offered strong competition throughout this model's production life between 2006 and 2016. The first generation version of this vehicle occupied a kind of no-man's land in the market, bigger than something compact but not large enough to rival proper mid-sized Volkswagen Transporter-class vans.

This MK2 model though, got itself sorted out in that regard, the volume, Engine Sizes and how verstile, they were able to rival anything in the class. Buyers get clever design, proven engines and low running costs in a package that certainly seems to work on paper. The Dispatch comes in 2 different Models the "LX" and the "Enterprise" this being top of the range. LX still has your usual Electric Windows, Remote Locking, Twin Slide Loading Doors, Bulkhead,and Radio but the Enterpise adds extra with Rear Parking Sensors, Satalite Navigation, USB, Bluetooth Phone, Audio Streaming,Cruise Control and much more.
Engine choice in a Dispatch is pretty straightforward, all the units on offer are diesels, the entry-level 90bhp 1.6-litre HDi with its 179Nm of torque, and the 2.0-litre HDi model with 125bhp, offering a full 300Nm of torque, If you do feel the need for more power, then there's also a 136bhp version of the same unit on offer boasting 320Nm. On the move, this Citroen copes really well with the atrocious surfaces offered up by poorer sections of the British road network and its relaxed approach does also extend to the power steering which at speed, could offer a bit more feel. You appreciate its lightness around town though, where this van is impressively manoeuvrable for its size, and with a 12.6m turning circle. Indeed, a key factor behind the success of the first generation Dispatch was the way it remained compact and wieldy in the manner of smaller, more car-like vans from the class below. This MK2 model's bigger of course, but it retains much of that same usability around town.
