Changes to Citroen Berlingo panel van diesels enhance cost effectiveness
The Euro 4 1.6HDi 75hp and 90hp diesel engines have now been re-homologated to deliver combined cycle fuel consumption improvements of up to 1.7% and CO2 emissions reductions of up to 6g/km.
Berlingo vans produced from October 2010 and powered by the 1.6HDi 75hp engine will have CO2 emissions of 147g/km (reduced from 153g/km), with fuel economy on the combined cycle up by 0.9% to 49.6mpg. Meanwhile the 1.6HDi 90hp engine’s CO2 emissions are reduced to 149g/km (down from 153g/km) and combined cycle fuel economy improves 1.7% to 50.4mpg.
Robert Handyside, commercial vehicle operations manager, said: 'Citroen continues to refine its Euro 4 engines to ensure its LCV customers benefit from fuel efficiency gains and emissions reductions. These latest changes, which are being introduced without any cost penalty, will ensure that the Berlingo maintains its position as one of the UK’s best-selling small vans.'
