When you are ready to get on board your Citroen Berlingo van the appeal of the van becomes totally clear. It has one of the most versatile cabins that are available for this type of van in market place at the moment. When you open the sliding doors (another practicality sorely needed with a van of this type), you will be confronted with an area that can accommodate up to 5 people. You may even start to think of your new Citroen Berlingo van as a bit of a tardis. There is loads of room for storage; it has nice an overhead locker much like that of an aircraft and brilliantly deep pockets. You also have the option to fold the rear bench flat to the floor and this will give you an incredible 3,000 liters or 659 gallons of space. When you look at the Citroen Berlingo Van from the outside it is hard to believe that you can get that much storage space, however, somehow Citroen have managed it with this model. The XTR and VTR are also fitted with air conditioning as standard.
If you prefer a petrol vehicle (personally, I don't know why anyone would these days), you can have either 108 or 88bhp versions which come with a 1.6 liter engine. My preferred choice would be the diesel version. This engine is also 1.6 liters and is powered by HDi. With the diesel version of the Citroen Berlingo Van you can expect to gain at least 50mpg when it comes to fuel consumption. Very economical if you are running a business and need a fleet of vans. Fuel is expensive these days and can be a huge drain on your bottom line profits, no matter how big or small your business may be.
Have you ever thought that it would be near impossible to have a van that does not drive like one? Well, the Citroen Berlingo Van has certainly managed that transition. Many people that drive small vans are in a hurry, this is because they have many tasks to carry out through the day and most of these can be time sensitive. This said you really do not need a van that is cumbersome and takes its time to get going. With the Citroen Berlingo Van, you will find that cornering is a dream and will feel much like the Citroen C4 car. The van hugs the road just like a car and is incredibly agile. Steering is another thing that can be a bug bear with small vans, not so with the Citroen Berlingo van, the steering is smooth and easy to control. The suspension with this little runaround has also been taken into account, this is important when choosing the right van for you. Some of the loads you may be carrying might be fragile and the last thing you need is to hit a pot hole or bump in the road only to find that the precious wedding cake you have just made for a client falls flat on its face! The Citroen Berlingo Van will shrug off any such problems with ease; in fact, you may not even notice that you have actually hit a bump.
Looking for value for money? Then the Citroen Berlingo van will not disappoint you. Value for money is especially important if you are a business looking to buy a job lot of vans. You will find that this van will cost you know more than a top of the range mini. Add to that the fact that you can expect 50mpg on fuel consumption and CO2 levels well within the legal limits, this van becomes hard to resist.
Air bags are something that everyone wants in their vehicles these days, it has been reported that they are one of the best inventions over the years and have saved a staggering number of lives (including mine). The Citroen Berlingo van comes with 2 airbags as standard; however has the capacity to be fitted with more should you want them. Again, going back to that all important issue of CO2 emissions, it is worth noting that Citroen were awarded a 4 star rating by EuroNCAP, something definitely worth boasting about.
