Citroën revises Berlingo  and Dispatch LCV models

Citroën’s Berlingo and Dispatch LCV models have been refreshed for 2012, with new styling, additional equipment and improved efficiency.

The Berlingo gains a wider, more defined grille, a new chevron badge rising up to the headlights and a new headlight arrangement. Inside, the existing upholstery has been replaced by Citroën’s new ‘Gazyban’ grey trim

The new model is also available with Grip Control to increase traction, incorporating hill-start assist. HDi and e-HDi versions can now be specified with a fixed speed limiter enabling the operator to set a permanent maximum speed from a choice of four available limits.

The new Berlingo is offered with one petrol and four diesel powertrains. With improved efficiency and environmental performance, the HDi 75 now emits 133g/km of CO2  – down from 136g/km – thanks to changes including the new aerodynamic upgrades. The HDi 90 now emits 138g/km – down from 140g/km.

The e-HDi 90 Airdream EGS6, which features e-HDi micro-hybrid technology with stop/start and a six-speed automated manual gearbox, delivers CO2  emissions of just 123g/km.

Like the Berlingo, the Dispatch gains a new front end. It is also now available with hill-start assist and the same fixed speed limiter functionality as Berlingo.

Grip Control is available for the first time, with the driver choosing one of four modes: normal, all-terrain, snow or sand. This advanced anti-skid option optimises traction and adapts to all driving conditions. An optional tyre pressure monitor is also introduced.

CO2  emissions have also been reduced thanks to aerodynamic panels underneath the body and a ‘volt control’ function to optimise battery charge management by the alternator. This has seen Dispatch emissions fall to 177g/km from 182g/km for the HDi 90 engine models and from 179g/km to 168g/km with the HDi 125.
