Ten Second Review
The Citroen Nemo van is small enough to make light of the city traffic but can still carry a decent amount. A highly economical diesel engine is the icing on the cake for a product that, if it fits the bill, will be plenty good enough for most operators. Recent improvements for this enhanced Euro6 model include a torquier HDi 80 diesel engine which is a touch more frugal.
The idea of a small van might at first seem somewhat counterintuitive, as the reason for a van's existence is to get more gear in it more of the time than a passenger vehicle. Citroen has clearly demonstrated that there's a booming market for tiny vans, satisfied since 2008 by this model, the Nemo. Since then, this van has been continually improved, most recently with the addition of Euro 6 engine tweaks. It shares its basic design with two ivals, Peugeot's Bipper and Fiat's Fiorino.
One of the advantages of a modest size and weight is that you don't need a big engine to move it. In Euro6 form, the Nemo is offered with a 1.3-litre HDi 80 diesel that delivers 80bhp and 200Nm of torque. At the wheel, the gear lever is mounted on the dash as is the fashion with LCVs these days and the snappy, short-throw action is fun to operate. On the move, you won't be expecting this Citroen to be earth-shatteringly quick - and it isn't - but the chance to approach the speed limit has become a rare luxury in the areas where it's designed to work, so that shouldn't be a big concern. The Nemo has independent front suspension, while at the rear is the old commercial vehicle standard transverse beam. The set-up works well helping to give this van the lively and energetic feel on the road that the current supersized Berlingo has partially lost. The downside is that this Citroen is less comfortable a proposition on the open road, but around town its short overhangs and teeny dimensions make it highly manoeuvrable. The turning circle is super-tight at under 10 metres kerb to kerb.
Design and Build
Although styling might not seem less of a priority than sorting out the balance sheet to a business owner, good looks haven't hurt the Nemo's chances. In fact, many small urban businesses require a signwritten vehicle that projects a certain corporate image and the Nemo looks cheeky and unthreatening. The bumpers, the wheelarches and even the windscreen dome outwards and along with the wide track, this creates a squat, planted stance. The inherent chunkiness also suggests the Nemo is a tough customer and there's not much to dissuade you from that opinion on the inside. The design is simple and the materials robust but storage could be more generous. Space is adequate for driver and passenger but larger occupants might find it a little confined during a long day at the wheel. The Nemo measures just 3,860mm in length but uses its interior space to full effect in offering a 2.5 cubic metre load volume and a 610kg maximum payload. The space itself is usefully square and a ladder frame bulkhead protects the rear of the driver's seat. Choose the optional Extenso folding passenger seat and that load volume can be increased to 2.8 cubic metres with the load length increased from 1,520mm to 2.5mm; ideal for pipes, planks of wood or other long items.
Market and Model
The Citroen Nemo is offered in three trim levels. The entry-level X model features an MP3-compatible CD stereo, a trip computer, ABS brakes, a driver's airbag and pre-tensioner seatbelts. The LX adds the sliding side door on the nearside, electric front windows, remote central locking, the folding passenger seat and heated electric mirrors. Air-conditioning is an option, as are a Bluetooth hands-free kit and rear parking sensors. At the top of the Nemo range is the Enterprise model which is fitted with air conditioning, parking sensors and a dual-function Connecting Box, which includes Bluetooth and a USB socket. This equipment replaces the previous solus Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity feature on this model. The Connecting Box is also available as an option on Nemo LX vans.

PCP (Personal Contract Purchase) a simple cost effective way to buy your new or nearly new car.
You choose the car, the deposit, how long you want the contract to run for and the mileage you intend to do. You will then receive a quote for fixed cost motoring for the length of the contract. At the end of the contract you have a choice to either buy the car outright for an agreed lump sum (the GFV or final balloon payment), or hand the vehicle back to the lender.
Hire Purchase allows you to take ownership of a car once all payments are made.
This is one of the most popular methods to buy a new vehicle. You pay an initial deposit, then pay off the balance in monthly payments over an agreed period of time, when the payments are complete the car is yours.
One of the main benefits with Hire Purchase is the ability to buy a high value vehicle on monthly payments.
Hire Purchase allows you to tailor your finance package as deposit, length of time and monthly payments are all flexible.
Personal contract hire is very similar to normal contract hire, but is exclusively for private individuals. This is one of the most common form of leasing.
With a personal contract hire agreement you take control of a car for a contractual period – usually referred to as the ‘lease period’. You will make fixed monthly payments for the duration of the contract – when the contract expires you will simply return the car and take out a new personal contract hire lease. PCH means you never have to worry about resale values of your car.
