What used Citroën Berlingo Multispace estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Citroën Berlingo Multispace estate?

Here's where the Berlingo earns its stripes, as it's frugal and cheap to maintain.

Both the 1.6-litre diesels give an official average of 47.9mpg; much better than the petrol models, which manage around 37mpg. The diesels also emit much less C02, making them cheaper to tax.

Insurance shouldn't be a worry, with the highest rating for the most powerful diesel being group 6. Servicing costs are roughly the same as its rivals'.

Resale values are fairly static, with the diesels worth not that much more than the petrols. Your choice of colour might make a difference, though, because some of the pastel paint colours widely available don't appeal to many buyers. Silver, metallic grey and more subdued colours are a better bet - unless the car is priced accordingly.
