Citroen's new updated and lower emissions Berlingo and Dispatch vans will debut at this year’s CV show in April. The Citroen Berlingo boasts a more robust and expressive design for 2012 with many additional features, among the upgrades the Berlingo gains a wider more defined grille with a new headlight arrangement. The interior upholstery has been replaced by Citroens new Gazyban grey trim for a more modern look. 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 CO due to changes including the new aerodynamic upgrades. The HDi 90 now emits 138g/km down from 140g/km.
The Citroen Dispatch gains a new front end, featuring a new chevron design and a wide chrome grille that extends up to the headlights. The model also has enhanced equipment; the latest Dispatch is available with hill-start assist and the same fixed speed limiter functionality as the 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.
