- Anybody driven Berlingo and Doblo car version/tow car advice
looking at towing 1200ishKG with car that can hold 2 or 3 bikes (easily) and then will be an ok and economical (diesel car) after done towing.
Currently have older 1.6HDI Berlingo, limited to 1100KG tow, newer Berlingo 1.6 are 1300KG tow but have seen Doblo – 2.0L, which strikes me as baing a bit more up to the job but I’m not a Fiat fan and the Doblo gets mixed reviews, very happy with Berlingo as all rounder (ie happy with as next car).
So any comments or any other diesel ‘cars’, big service intevals, reliable, that will tow 1200kg, take 2/3 bikes and bike gear with a bit of space easily (front wheel out is ok, but just straight in and out without dismantling) and do about 50mpg in rural 30-50 mode.Posted 5 years agodbSubscriber
Never towed more than about 850kg in my Berlingo 1.6hdi (90hp)
1200 sounds like a lot. Are we talking long distance, motorway driving or up and down hills big hills!
I think the 1.6 110hp would be ok power wise, but would the fiat 2ltr have a bigger clutch?
What about a VW Caddy – think you can get them 1.6 or 2ltr? May be another option.
