The Civia train concept was created with passenger comfort and build quality in mind, and to meet the goals of reliability, frequency and punctuality. They have better provision for disabled passengers than older Cercanías trains.
Civia units use 3 kV overhead AC electrification. The maximum speed of Civia units in service is 120 km/h, but with modifications they will be able to reach 160 km/h.
Civia are modular units - trains can be formed from two, three, four or five cars as required. There are four car types:
- A1 - end car with driving cab and normal floor.
- A2 - end car with driving cab and normal floor.
- A3 - intermediate car and downstairs WC.
- A4 - intermediate car with normal floor.
