Ten Second Review
Citroen's improved Berlingo is one of the larger compact vans on the UK market, offering a usefully large payload capacity and a maximum load volume of up to 4.1m3. It's now smarter looking than before and gets some extra hi-tech, but the main news lies beneath the bonnet with a range of fresh BlueHDi diesel engines. As before, the driving experience these units deliver might not be as perky as some would like but the comfort and refinement are both a match for the sector's best efforts.
The star turn in Citroen's LCV line-up has long been the Berlingo van. The original model was launched in the UK in 1996 and it proved extremely popular with its straightforward design and robust construction. In more recent years, the second generation version has offered a more sophisticated option and aims to please compact van buyers who need something larger than Citroen's little Nemo. So, in this improved version, as well as a smarter look, there's a range of efficient BlueHDi diesel engines and in the cabin, an infotainment screen to give the interior a little more of an up-to-date feel. As before, buyers can opt for a smooth automated gearbox, the option of Grip Control for slippery roads and even all-electric technology. It all represents a commitment to product improvement that has been rewarded by businesses across Europe, where one in seven Citroen products sold is a commercial vehicle.
The second generation Berlingo actually shares its basic platform with the old first generation version of Citroen's C4 Picasso MPV. As a result, it's not surprising to find that ride comfort has been prioritised. Road and engine noise are well contained too, making sure that big distances fly by and the steering is light, combining with the tight 11m turning circle to aid manoeuvring. A few might notice that around the twisty stuff, this spacious Berlingo feels a little less agile and immediate in its responses and rolls a tad more than the original but most operators will accept a slight loss there. The Berlingo is offered with three BlueHDi diesel powertrains, plus there's an all-electric version and a minority-interest VTi 95 petrol engine option. Nearly all sales will be of the BlueHDi variants, which deliver either 75, 100 or 120bhp. Go for a BlueHDi 100 model equipped with Citroen's occasionally jerky ETG6 automated manual transmission and you'll find optimised pedal mapping to adjust power effectively for smoother start-ups and acceleration. Gear change speeds are modulated more precisely, based on driver input, for improved performance and comfort, and its optimised gear shift patterns further improve efficiency. For even greater safety on the road, this Citroen is available with Grip Control to increase traction, incorporating hill-start assist. Some versions can now be specified with a fixed speed limiter enabling the operator to set a permanent maximum speed from a choice of four available limits.
Design and Build
The look of the Berlingo van has been updated in recent years, with the bumper, radiator grille and daytime running lights all now being carefully integrated to give the front a smart appearance. The bumper and radiator design has been created to sit low and wide as part of a look that Citroen hopes will underline the robust strength of the vehicle. Internally, the Berlingo remains an impressive piece of work with good quality materials and neat design. The main cabin change is the adoption of a full-width over-windscreen storage shelf with map reading lights on either side for driver and passenger. Other stowage space remains abundant and clever solutions abound ready to swallow up all the paraphernalia of your working day. In the two-seater Berlingo, the single passenger seat folds down to reveal a desk and cup holders. There's also an 'Extenso' extra middle seat option. As before, there are two Berlingo bodystyles to consider and both are on the large side of what we expect from a compact van. Both versions share a 2,728mm wheelbase but the longer L2 model has 248mm extra tagged on behind. It means that even the smaller L1 is 4,380mm in length, that's 243mm longer than the original Berlingo with 350mm extra in the wheelbase department. Payloads range from 625kg to 850kg in the L1 and 750kg in the L2 version, sizable carrying capacities that edge awfully close to that of some small panel vans at the top end.
Market and Model
The Berlingo van comes in either shorter L1 or longer L2 bodystyles and virtually all trim variants get the option of the useful 3-seater 'Extenso' multi-function folding passenger seat. There's also a 5-seat crew van, an enhanced traction version, an all-electric model and a platform cab for special bodywork conversions. As for equipment, well all models include ABS brakes, a trip computer, a CD stereo, central locking, electric front windows and internally adjustable door mirrors. All Berlingo vans specified with the hi-tech ETG6 auto gearbox also have Electronic Stability Control (ESC), traction control with Hill Start Assist, a passenger airbag, cruise control with driver-adjustable speed limiter and a new Gear Shift Indicator as standard. For greater efficiency, safety and reduced driver stress levels, all Berlingo panel vans are fitted, as standard, with Citroen's unique - and recently enhanced - Trafficmaster telematics platform, which includes Smartnav dynamic satellite navigation system and Trackstar stolen vehicle tracking. Other useful options include front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera. There's also an optional 'Active City Brake' system which scans the road ahead as you drive at urban speeds for potential collision hazards. Inside the cab, the newly-introduced 7-inch infotainment screen can be specified with satellite navigation and various clever apps. It can also be specified with neat 'MirrorScreen' technology that duplicates the functionality of your smartphone.

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.
