CV Show 2016: Citroen to unveil updated Berlingo

Citroen will be showing off its updated Berlingo range at the NEC Commercial Vehicle Show 2016. The updates will include an all-new Euro6 engine line-up, with improve fuel economy and lower emissions. There's no details on pricing, but expect the revised Berlingo to reach showrooms in May.

The Berlingo was launched in 2008, but Citroen says the 2016 updates will make its best-selling van cheaper to run and more comfortable, with improvements to standard equipment. 

The all-Euro6 diesel engine line-up includes a new 75PS 1.6-litre BlueHDi, offered alongside the familiar 100PS and 120PS 1.6 variants. The Berlingo's 1.6-litre VTi petrol (95PS) also gets upgrades to bring it into line with Euro6 emission laws. The petrol and diesel engines will all be linked to a five-speed manual gearbox as standard. 

Citroen hasn't released any fuel economy or CO2 details for its new engines, but a spokesperson told Honest John Vans that the new engine line-up will "improve fuel economy, efficient and on-road driveability". Full details of the new engines will be released near to the CV Show, which takes place at Birmingham's NEC from 26 - 29 April. 

As well as new powertrains, Citroen will renew its range-topping Enterprise trim level, with all models getting air condition, touchscreen infotainment, parking sensors and Bluetooth as standard.
