The new Citroën Berlingo will launch at the Commercial Vehicle Show, unveiled with advanced BlueHDi Euro-6 compliant engines and specification and styling enhancements.
On sale from 1 July, Citroën says the improved Berlingo brings further running cost reductions and environmental benefits, combined with better driver comfort and safety.
It’s the first model in the Citroën LCV range to adopt Euro-6 compliant BlueHDi diesel engines, which benefit from advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology. Citroën will introduce the engine across its LCV line-up between July this year and September 2016.
SCR technology goes through a three-stage process to treat emissions caused by combustion, eliminating 99.9 per cent of particles in the vehicle’s exhaust emissions to meet Euro-6 requirements for NOx reductions.
Euro-5 HDi 75 and HDi 90 engines are available in the new Berlingo until May 2016, available with 5-speed manual transmissions. The BlueHDi engines will, depending on the model, come with stop and start, manual five or six-speed gearboxes and Citroën’s ETG6 automated manual transmission.
New models will continue to provide operators with Teletrac Smartnav satellite navigation and Trackstar stolen vehicle tracking, an advanced telematics platform which can be upgraded at low cost to include Fleet Director, adding real-time fleet management capability.
New Berlingo vans have a redesigned grille and front bumper and are available with an optional Look Pack, featuring LED daytime-running lights.
Inside, Berlingo LX and Enterprise trim levels gain cruise control and a programmable speed limiter. The top-of-the-range Enterprise also gets an upgraded DAB audio system, incorporating a seven-inch touchscreen with Mirror Screen technology and alarm for increased security.
