Fear not, this isn’t a preview of Citroen’s 2017 WRC entry. No, Citroen seemingly had a quiet moment, a Dispatch to hand and a few minutes of WRC stars Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle’s time – so, they slung the pair into the brand’s new van, pointed them in the direction of the track and let fly. 

‘I’m impressed, that was really good – I enjoyed it. With slippery conditions on the stage, New Dispatch coped really well,’ said Meeke. ‘It gave me the stability I needed in the corners, with great handling, which made it easy and fun to drive.’

Citroen’s new Dispatch is on sale now, with prices starting at £17,915 – excluding VAT and fees.
