Look at some such eye testing
The Citroen Berlingo MPV gets a boxy stance with the signature front grille and split headlamps. The recently spotted testing mule gets white paint and includes white inserts around the fog lamp housing, wide air dams, black cladding on the front and rear bumpers, signature side cladding, and steel wheels.
Engine options and power
It is too early to say anything about this car in terms of engine options. However, the test car that has come out is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, which is mated to a 1.5L petrol engine. Notably, in the global markets, this MPV is made available with both petrol and diesel engines. While the petrol model uses a 1.2-liter, 3-cylinder turbo unit that churns out 108bhp, the diesel version comes with a 1.5L motor that churns out 101bhp to 128bhp.
