For The engine gives good strength and economy, returning just over 50mpg on the combined cycle. XTR models come with a more rugged look.
Against Sadly, this engine comes only with the most expensive trim, making this by far the most expensive Berlingo - not great when this is a supposedly 'budget' buy.
What Car? says
Because this engine comes only with the dearest trim, this model comes at too high a price to pay for a Berlingo.

It’s important to decide how you plan to use your Citroen Berlingo Multispace before you decide which engine will be best for you. The petrol engine has enough oomph for it to keep up with family hatchbacks, but it's worth going for something a little stronger (ie diesel) if you plan on regularly carrying full loads.
Before you buy any Citroen – and the Berlingo is no exception – check websites and phone dealers to check the latest offers. The company’s own website is a good place to start, with an ‘Offers’ section that you can click through to from each car’s ‘homepage’.
Also, given that the basic specification is pretty sparse and you may well be buying some options, look closely at the various 'packs', which bundle together some useful options at tempting prices.
