Citroen Nemo Leasing
A very compact van with very big ideas, Citroen’s Nemo proves that small can be beautiful for business.
Citroen's Nemo has proven to be one of the bestselling compact vans and the latest versions aim to keep things that way. It’s is small enough to make light of the city traffic but can still carry a decent amount. Plus Citroen Nemo contract hire rates can be very tempting.
Why Would You Want One?
One of the advantages of a little city-based LCV of modest size and weight is that you don't need a big engine to move it. In Euro6 form, the Nemo is offered with a 1.3-litre HDi 80 diesel that delivers 80bhp and 200Nm of torque. At the wheel, the gear lever is mounted on the dash as is the fashion with LCVs these days and the snappy, short-throw action is fun to operate. On the move, you won't be expecting this Citroen to be earth-shatteringly quick - and it isn't - but the chance to approach the speed limit has become a rare luxury in the areas where it's designed to work, so that shouldn't be a big concern.
Give Me the Key Details...
A Citroen Nemo lease opportunity is more than worth considering here. A highly economical diesel engine is the icing on the cake for a product that, if it fits the bill, will be plenty good enough for most operators. The Nemo’s good looks doesn’t hurt its chances either. In fact, many small urban businesses require a sign written vehicle that projects a certain corporate image and the Nemo looks cheeky and unthreatening.
This Citroen measures just 3,860mm in length but uses its interior space to full effect in offering a 2.5 cubic metre load volume and a 610kg maximum payload. The space itself is usefully square and a ladder frame bulkhead protects the rear of the driver's seat. Choose the optional Extenso folding passenger seat and that load volume can be increased to 2.8 cubic metres with the load length increased from 1,520mm to 2.5mm; ideal for pipes, planks of wood or other long items.
The Nemo has independent front suspension set-up works well, helping to give this van the lively and energetic feel on the road that the current supersized Berlingo has partially lost. Before considering the various Citroen Nemo leasing deals on offer, you’ll need to make your choice of model. There are ‘X’ and ‘LX’ variants – and the option of EGS auto transmission.
The Bottom Line
A Citroen Nemo lease gets you a more practical van than you might expect from this one’s diminutive size. Practical enough to make some buyers of larger Berlingo and Transit Connect-class compact vans think twice? Possibly. Pleasantly chunky styling, a nimble driving experience and a surprisingly generous cargo capacity will all help to persuade any doubters.
