Yes, we know all about the 2.0HDI being superceeded after 2005, the 1.6HDI has the same power output i.e. 90BHP but from a smaller cubic capacity engine (1600c.c.) which is supposedly a more efficient unit and will be more than adequate for the job...
Berlingo Multispace 2.0HDI '54 reg Mediterranean Blue
The 1.6 turbo-diesel is a cracking engine! If you're worried about power it can be chipped to around 128bhp and that improves the economy too.
The same motor is fitted to the Ford Focus and the Mini to name a couple,
but if you keep the oil fresh and change it every 9000 miles then you shouldn't get a problem.
I have one in my '06 Desire and it's great. :thumbsup:

Thanks for your feedback.I'll be going to have a look at a 58 reg 1.6 hdi 90 tomorrow so might throw a new thread on to see if anyone has experience of towing with this model.I'd go for a more usual towcar but hey- it just wouldn't be a berlingo !
