The marketing gurus at Mercedes have enlisted Richard Dean Anderson to help sell the new Citan.

Reviving his roll as MacGyver, Anderson will battle evil-doers in three webisodes that will be posted on the Macgyver-Citan.com website on September 18th. According to Mercedes, "In time-honored fashion, the maverick problem-solver uses quick thinking, dexterity and everyday items to overcome the challenges and adversaries that he faces. As he embarks on a fresh round of MacGyver adventures, he knows he can count on his newest partner - the compact, maneuverable and versatile Citan."

As we have previously reported, the Citan is essentially a rebadged Renault Kangoo. It will debut at the IAA Commercial Vehicle Show and be available with a supercharged petrol engine that develops 114 PS (84 kW / 113 hp). There will also be three diesels with outputs ranging from 75 PS (55 kW / 74 hp) to 110 PS (81 kW / 109 hp).
