Citroën’s Facelifted Berlingo Breaks Cover with Discreet Updates

Citroën has lifted the veils off its facelifted Berlingo, which will have its world debut less than two weeks from now at the Geneva Motor Show.

For 2015, the Berlingo has received a subtle styling update including a new front bumper with re-positioned LED DRLs and a new radiator grille. Additionally, Multispace versions gain two new body colors, Cumulus Grey and Moka Grey.

In terms of equipment, the Citroën Berlingo gets a new 7-inch Touchdrive Interface that groups media and navigation functions together, along with Mirror Screen technology. Available from November 2015, the latter allows the driver to duplicate their smartphone content and stay connected at all times via the 7-inch touchscreen.

Also from November, the Berlingo will be available with the Active City Brake system, while a reversing camera and front parking sensors will be offered from June.

But the most important update for customers of the Berlingo is the refined lineup of BlueHDi Euro6 diesel engines. The offer expands with the BlueHDi 120 S&S unit, which is offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox for the first time on the Berlingo.

The small van is offered with three diesel engines, with 75PS (74hp), 100PS (99hp) and 120PS (118hp). There’s also an electric version, which promises a driving range of 170 km (106 miles) between charges.

The Berlingo EV is powered by an electric motor that produces of 49kW (67PS) and 200Nm (147lb-ft) of torque, allowing it to reach a top speed of 110 km/h (68 mph).
