Used Citroën Berlingo Heading
The clever folk at Citroën don't really conform to stereotypes, and so the compact Berlingo MPV doesn't blend in with the normal, somewhat bland selection of other MPVs available. Instead, Citroën have turned the Berlingo into a futuristic, quirky-looking affair, that stands out for all the right reasons. But what else does a used Berlingo offer? Well, you can be sure to take advantage of:
- Funky styling
- Enhanced comfort
- A relaxing driving experience
- Decent build quality
Discover more about these factors in more detail below, and decide if the Berlingo is the right used vehicle for you.
Engines and Driving Experience
A simplistic choice of engines mean that choosing the right one for your needs is easy. You can choose a 1.2-litre petrol with either 107bhp or 127bhp, or a 1.5-litre diesel engine with either 73bhp, 100bhp or 128bhp.
The petrol versions can return up to 42mpg, whilst the diesels are unsurprisingly more efficient, with up to 57mpg possible. Buyers wanting a mix of both power and economy will want to go for the 127bhp petrol or 128bhp diesel.
As for the driving experience itself, the Berlingo comes with a five-speed manual, six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic - depending on model chosen. Being derived from a van, the seating is upright and visibility is very good. It's also very comfort orientated, mirroring most modern Citroën models.
Practicality and Running Costs
Depending on your unique needs, you can find a Berlingo M model, which has five seats, or a Berlingo XL model, which has seven seats. But it's worth noting both models offer heaps of practicality and quirks.
There's 186 litres of storage space via cubby holes and compartments in the Berlingo, along with a massive 775 litres of boot space (below the parcel shelf) in the five-seater, or 1050 litres for the seven-seater with the rear seats removed.
As for running costs, the Berlingo is brilliantly economical and won't break the bank when it comes to servicing, insurance and tax. This can be taken care of by any Evans Halshaw Citroën dealership.
Interior, Technology and Safety
Interior quality offers a well-assembled, robust and attractively trimmed ambiance, with some Berlingo models getting a rather unique and typically stylish green splash of colour. This gives the interior a nice aura, much better than that of plainer MPVs.
Crystal clear analogue dials work well with the central 8-inch infotainment screen, giving a nice balance of ultra-modern digital and analogue simplicity. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto ensure smartphone connectivity is taken care of nicely too.
As for safety, the Berlingo goes one better than the previous model in achieving a four-star Euro NCAP rating. Dependent on model chosen, safety tech includes adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, autonomous emergency braking and Advanced Grip Control to aid the cars traction in varying conditions.
Is the Citroën Berlingo right for me?
If you are after an MPV that offers superb practicality, whilst making use of funky and unique styling, then the Berlingo is certainly worth checking out.
The fact it's available with five or seven seats shows just how versatile you can make your Berlingo, along with how it can be turned into a 'van' when not carrying people about.
The Peugeot Rifter is almost identical to the Berlingo, if a little more reserved in the style department. Whist the Vauxhall Combo Life and Ford Tourneo Connect cannot match the Berlingo's funky, futuristic vibe.
It will all depend on whether standing out is right for you.
