Berlingoes diesel

Premium over petrol: Berlingo HDi costs $4500 more than the 1.4.

Citroen bowls up a diesel Berlingo ahead of a late-2008 successor, priced at $22,000

8 Feb 2008

IN AN effort to stave off its competitors before a new-generation Berlingo arrives later in 2008, Citroen has launched a diesel version of the current-series micro-van that will rival the likes of the new Renault Kangoo.

Priced from $21,990, which is $4500 more than the equivalent 1.4 petrol version, the Berlingo HDi is fitted with a 1.6-litre common-rail direct-injection turbo-diesel engine – as seen in the C3 HDi small car – that produces 66kW of power at 4000rpm and 215Nm from 1750rpm.

This is a sizeable improvement over the 57kW/111Nm 1.4 petrol model and translates into considerable benefits on the road.

The HDi's fuel range is extended further with its 60L tank (up 5L), while CO2 emissions are lower in the diesel, down from 176g/km on the 1.4 petrol to 143g/km.

Most other mechanical and specification details are unchanged (maximum payload remains at 800kg, for example), although the HDi is restricted to a single variant with a sliding door.

The entry-level Berlingo remains the 1.4 without a sliding door, which is priced from $16,490. All models are fitted with double swing-out rear doors, a front strut/rear torsion beam suspension, 14-inch steel wheels, power steering, a driver's airbag, air-conditioning and a two-speaker stereo with a CD slot. ABS brakes and a passenger's airbag are unavailable.
