How much does the Citroen Berlingo Multispace cost to run?

The 1.5L diesel is the most economical Citroen Berlingo Multispace to run, taking into account insurance, tax and fuel efficiency.

The Citroen Berlingo Multispace 1.5L diesel costs £20.00 a year to tax, as it sits in tax band B.

It does just under 69 MPG on average, which means it will cost £9.00* in diesel every 100 miles driven.

In terms of fuel efficiency, it sits between the Nissan Note 1.5L diesel and the more thirsty Nissan Note 1.5L diesel.

The lower the insurance group, the cheaper a car should be to insure. This model is rated insurance group 8, which is lower than the Nissan Note 1.5L diesel, but higher than the Peugeot Partner Tepee 1.6L diesel. (If insurance cost is important to you then the Peugeot Partner Tepee has the lowest insurance group.)

Citroen Berlingo Multispace: How big is the boot?

The Citroen Berlingo Multispace has an above average boot space (762 litres of luggage with the seats up).

This would allow one pushchair and 5 large bags. Alternatively you could load up with 6 large bags or 6 cabin bags instead.

The Citroen Berlingo Multispace MPV is the best in class, and better than its closest rival Ford Grand C Max.

Is the Citroen Berlingo Multispace easy to park?

The Citroen Berlingo Multispace is very middle of the road - it fills three quarters of a space. There are lots of wider cars, but just as many that are narrower and feel easier to park. For example, the Nissan Note.

If you don’t park in the street that much, then the Berlingo Multispace is fine. It will go in to an average street slot, giving you a gap of 354mm to swing in and out. But if you street park a lot you may want to look at the Kia Venga.

Which Citroen Berlingo Multispace has the best performance?

The fastest Citroen Berlingo Multispace from 0-60, is the 1.5L diesel (if you’re a petrol head, it has 300 lbs/ft torque and 129 bhp). It hits 60 mph in 10.3 seconds.

The closest rival in its class is the Ford C Max 1.5L petrol, which will beat your Citroen Berlingo Multispace to 60 by 0.1 seconds. That’s a big gap in Formula 1, but not something you would notice in your commute to work.

What size caravan or trailer, can the Citroen Berlingo Multispace tow?

If you are towing you want good torque to pull away easily despite the extra weight, and the car needs to be at least 15% heavier than the caravan to keep you stable at speed.

The model that can tow the biggest caravan or heaviest trailer is the Citroen Berlingo Multispace 1.5L diesel which has 300 lbs/ft torque. It should be able to tow a braked caravan or trailer that weighs up to 1500kg comfortably.

You must check your car handbook – maximum towing weights vary considerably with different engine and gearbox combinations.
