The Joys of Leasing a Citroen Berlingo

The first Citroen Berlingo vans first hit the roads in 1996, but the model we know and recognise today was initially released in 2008 with regular updates and improvements since. The most recent changes saw Euro 6 compatible engines and clean new styling added to the Berlingo's arsenal to push it ahead of it's fellow car derived vans, like the Volkswagen Caddy or new Ford Transit Connect.
The zippy Berlingo van has a multitude of uses and is is utilised in nearly every sector with great success thanks to it's versatility and maneuverability. Most popular in its panel van form, the Berlingo is one of the small vans on the market that comes with three seats in the front as standard.

Strong residual values on the Berlingo Enterprise mean that leasing the top spec model will usually cost you less in terms of finance than leasing the basic X or mid-level LX models. With modern technology present throughout the van such as a built in satellite navigation system, parking sensors and air conditioning the Enterprise model is an all round winner.
