For For a few hundred pounds more than the equivalent HDi 75, the 90 is much stronger and gives better performance, but comes with no penalty in fuel economy. It's our pick of the diesel engines.
Against The HDi 90 looks rather expensive next to a similarly powerful petrol model.

Overall, this has to be our favourite Berlingo: a decent package of equipment, a strong yet flexible and economical engine, plus plenty of space and practicality.

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.
