Citroën Berlingo Multispace MPV (2008-2018) - MPG, running costs & CO2
Nearly 70mpg diesel economy makes the Citroen Berlingo an appealing package
There are two petrol and two diesel engines to choose from when buying a Citroen Berlingo Multispace. The most economical model is the BlueHDi 100 S&S, which is claimed to be capable of 67.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 109g/km. In real-world driving, its economy is likely to be poorer, particularly with a full complement of passengers and their luggage on board.
Citroen Berlingo MPG & CO2
The same engine without S&S (short for stop-start technology, which automatically switches the engine off when you're stopped in traffic) is cheaper but a bit less efficient, managing 65.7mpg with CO2 emissions of 113g/km for a slightly higher BiK band of 22%. Every version of the Citroen Berlingo Multispace costs £140 each year in road tax. The slightly more powerful BlueHDi 120 model doesn’t come with a huge economy penalty, returning up to 64.2mpg (22% BiK) with a standard six-speed manual gearbox and stop and start.
The 1.6-litre petrol VTi 95 is the least economical of all Berlingo engines. It has claimed fuel economy of 44.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 148g/km. If you tend to do short journeys and want a petrol Berlingo, it’s definitely worth upgrading to the turbocharged 1.2-litre engine; this is nicer to use and more efficient, returning 55.4mpg.
The Berlingo Multispace sits in insurance groups 10 to 17, meaning policies should be reasonably priced.
Citroen’s three-year warranty comes with no mileage cap until the third year, when a 60,000-mile limit is introduced.
The Berlingo’s simple mechanicals should make servicing fairly affordable. Citroen offers fixed-price servicing plans, which cover maintenance for 36 months or 35,000 miles and cost from £400 upfront or around £11 a month.
