Citroen Berlingo

The new Citroen Berlingo retains the styling of the old car but the Peugeot 5008 shared platform increases the length and width but the roofline is a little lower than the old car, meaning there is even more room for up to five (you are not aware of the decrease in height) the boot has increased by 100 litres to a whopping 775 litres, still with no load lip.  The ‘M’ Berlingo will be joined by an XL car in 2019 that is 35cm longer and will offer seven seats.

 

Two trim lines, Feel and Flair, all cars have an 8 inch touchscreen with Apple Carplay / Android Auto, active lane keep, active safety braking, automatic lights and windscreen wipers, height adjustable driver seat and manual air conditioning, Flair models add rear electric windows (worth the upgrade alone), rear parkings sensors, three individual rear seats, electric parking brake, sat nav, alloy wheels and LED daytime running lights.

 

Two engines, a six speed manual 1.2 litre petrol with 108 bhp that returns a claimed 51.4 mpg and a 1.5 litre diesel available as a manual with 100bhp or a manual or 8 speed full automatic with 127 bhp, all claim over 65 miles per gallon. Prices range from £195 Advance Payment for the small diesel up to £895 for the Auto 127 bhp car in top flair trim.

*The Berlingo is the sister car to the new Peugeot Rifter and following the purchase of Vauxhall/Opel by the PSA group, the Vauxhall Combo Life. All are on the Scheme and the Vauxhall in XL variant with 7 seats.
