What used Citroën Berlingo Multispace estate will I get for my budget?
The Berlingo’s been around for so long that at the bottom end it’s possible to pay nearly anything for it. You could pick up a high-mileage early model for under £1000, and a good, clean runner for £1500. Spend £2000 if you can accept a mileage of around and above 100,000, or nearer £5000 if you want a 2011 car with an average mileage for the year. Up the dosh to between £6000 and £8000 for a 2012 car with a full service history, while £10,000 will net you a 2016 car with all the trimmings from a trader or independent dealer. Look to spend between £10,000 and £12,000 on a later 2017 or 2018 car.
How much does it cost to run a Citroën Berlingo Multispace estate?
Not surprisingly, the 1.6 HDI 100 diesel engine is the one to go for, if economy matters. Equipped with the automated manual ETG6 gearbox the official fuel economy figure is 67.3mpg, with corresponding CO2 emissions of 109g/km. As a manual, its official figure is 65.7mpg and 113g/km. The more powerful 1.6 diesel has a respectable 55.4mpg for 134g/km, while the best-performing petrol-engined Berlingo is the 1.6 VTi 95 with 44.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 148g/km.
Cars registered before the car tax changes of April 2017 came into force will have their annual VED tax based on the CO2 emissions, so these will be reasonable across the board and especially good for the diesel-engined cars. Those registered after that date will pay tax at the flat rate, currently £140 a year.
Insurance costs are reasonable, too, and servicing should be relatively cheap carried out at a franchised dealership, although there’ll be plenty of high street garages that will maintain a Berlingo, probably at a cheaper cost.
