Buyin advice needed
#1
Hi all,

Im looking to get myself a Citroen Berlingo.

Ideally XTR version, however what engines I should look at and what to avoid ??

What I am after:

- year 09-current, but don't want to spend fortune on it (so probably something around years 10-11);
- ideally XTR version with three separate rear seats (unless some VTR's have three seats in the rear??);
- must have roof rails;
- will be using it for UK/euro trips: two of us plus to bicycles (roof mounted or on the back towing bar etc.);
- was thinking of stronger 110ps versions as I don't think 90ps will be strong enough fully loaded etc?

What do you recommend guys?

BTW,

Recently have come across with Cat D VTR version 2013 for approx. £4k with 32k on the clock. With I believe e-hdi (?) engine/gearbox ??
I have absolutely no idea/experience with this version.
How good/bad is it?
Reliable ?

Worth looking at Peugeot Partner too as the 'Outdoor' model also has the roof bars and three seats in the back.

I've just bought one of those as for whatever reason they seemed to be cheaper or more plentiful than XTR spec Citroens.

For what it's worth I'm on my second HDi 90 engine. It's no road burner but I find it plenty torquey enough and have been all over Europe stuffed with camping gear. It's fine (and my other car has 200bhp :-) )

Never tried the 110 so ignorance is bliss :-)

Hi,
I have a xtr 90, 2011, and it copes fairly well fully loaded, though i always think i should have got the 115 for that extra poke.
My engine is Pre-e so is not as fuel efficent, i get about 45mpg average,  and i am trading up shortly, to a 120 blue hdi ( got there in the end Big Grin  )
