Citroen Relay review

Overall Rating: 5/10

New Citroen Relay takes driving aids, connectivity and comfort to a new level with features that are unique in its segment. Its range of diesel and electric engines has been extensively overhauled, guaranteeing professionals even greater efficiency and lower running costs.

New Relay is Citroën's most sturdy LCV, with a payload of up to 2 tons. It features a range of innovative equipment – worthy of a passenger car – ensuring optimum working conditions every day.


The front end of the new Relay has been redesigned to further reinforce the model's strong personality, while improving its aerodynamic characteristics. The bumper, radiator grille (now the same colour as the bodywork) and rear-view mirrors have been redesigned with this in mind. The black lower section has been reinforced to further enhance the vehicle's impact protection. More elegant, the new LED headlamps are also 30% more efficient than their halogen predecessors. Finally, the rear lights have also been given a new design.

In the passenger compartment, the new Relay's dashboard has been redesigned to offer improved ergonomics and a more elegant style, with a new digital instrument cluster and large central screen (see below). The steering wheel, gearbox controls and door trim have also been upgraded.


  • Relay's infotainment features have also been redesigned. On the mid-range versions, there is a 5" display screen that shows information about the media being used (radio, telephone, etc.). Audio can be streamed via Bluetooth, and the driver can interact safely and easily with their smartphone using voice recognition. On the top-of-the-range versions, Relay has a new 10" touch screen that includes radio, navigation aids, etc. Its smartphone-inspired ergonomic design makes it easy and fluid to use, thanks to widgets that function as shortcuts. It offers a Bluetooth hands-free function, wireless replication of your smartphone screen, and 3D navigation.
  • An optional 7-inch all-digital instrument cluster has been updated and is now clearer. The driver can customise the information display to focus on the data that is most useful to them. This screen can also be used to display on-board navigation information. As standard, the new Jumper features a new instrument cluster combining an analogue display for road speed and engine speed with digital gauges for fuel level and engine temperature, as well as a high-quality 3.5-inch TFT screen.
  • A wireless smartphone charger in the centre of the new dashboard eliminates the need to plug in and unplug your phone whenever you leave the vehicle.
  • An optional digital interior rear-view mirror is connected to a camera at the rear of the new Relay, providing a perfect view at all times.
  • Electric power steering that automatically adapts the level of assistance to the vehicle's speed, for greater precision at high speeds and greater smoothness in town.
  • An electric parking brake that's easier to use than a conventional handbrake.
  • A “hands-free access and start” system that enables drivers to lock, unlock and start their vehicle, all without having to take the key out of their pocket. A real advantage for professionals who often make many stops during the day.
  • 360° parking radar. Comprising 14 or 16 sensors (depending on the length of the vehicle) distributed around the new Jumper, the system displays the proximity of surrounding obstacles on the central screen.
  • New driving aids: driver fatigue alert, traffic sign reading, lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, intelligent speed limiter.
  • The Drive Assist pack: the first step towards driverless driving. This driving assistance package combines adaptive cruise control with stop and go, lane centring assistance and traffic jam assistance. At speeds of up to 30 km/h, for example in traffic jams, the system can autonomously control steering, braking and acceleration.


More suited than ever to all types of use, the new Relay comes with engines that combine performance and efficiency.

The new 2.2 Diesel engine is available in three powers: 120 bhp, 140 bhp and 180 bhp, combined with a new 6-speed manual gearbox. For the first time, an 8-speed automatic transmission is available as an option with the BlueHDi 140 and 180.
