2014 Citroen Berlingo Van

The diesel motor within the long-body Berlingo L2 matches the petrol for energy and displacement (66kW at 4000rpm, turbocharged one.6-litre), but trumps it for pulling energy with the extra 83Nm of torque (215Nm in complete, sent from 1750rpm). Also paired having a five-speed guide, the additional grunt assists shave one.two seconds from the L2’s dash time, whilst gas usage can also be thirty for each cent sharper within the diesel variant at five.8L/100km – a determine we arrived near to by averaging six.1L/100km inside a 7 days of predominantly brief, suburban journeys within our L2 check vehicle.

The diesel motor shudders at start-up and when turned off, and it is usually clattery below acceleration. There is sufficient torque to create it really feel able about city having a mild load within the back again, and it does its very best function in between 1750 and 4000rpm – any reduce and it labours; any greater and it is just creating sound.

The steering features a sloppy really feel, courtesy of the disconcerting diploma of perform within the wheel at lifeless centre. There is close to no suggestions in the street, along with a heaviness at reduce speeds close to the lock positions. Luckily, there is a reassuring steadiness towards the wheel via corners that relatively redeems the dealing with.

The see in the higher driver’s seat is commanding, with great ahead visibility and fantastic large wing mirrors to assist you retain monitor from the motion powering and both aspect. Reversing the Berlingo is really simpler than you might envision, with corners and wheels which are remarkably simple to evaluate. Offered its totally enclosed cargo segment, eyesight when reversing from driveways is predictably restricted, creating the $500 rear parking sensor choice a deserving expense.
