Citroen Berlingo

The new Citroen Berlingo retains the styling of the old car but the Peugeot 5008 shared platform increases the length and width  (the roofline is a little lower but you can’t tell) meaning there is even more room for five or even seven passengers. The boot has increased by 100 litres to a whopping 775 litres, still with no load lip.  The ‘M’ Berlingo is joined by an XL car that is 35cm longer and offers seven seats. The Berlingo is a fantastic car, we owned one for 13 years, it offers a commanding driving position and more thrills than you would expect, sliding rear doors are the perfect way to enter and leave. If you are after a comfortable way to carry the family and you can get past its van heritage, this is all the car you need. Thats the thing about the Berlingo, it may not be the car you want but is is almost certainly the car you need.

 

Two trim lines, Feel and Flair, all cars have an 8 inch touchscreen with Apple Carplay / Android Auto, active lane keep, active safety braking, automatic lights and windscreen wipers, height adjustable driver seat and manual air conditioning, Flair models add rear electric windows (worth the upgrade alone), rear parkings sensors, three individual rear seats, electric parking brake, sat nav, alloy wheels and LED daytime running lights. XTR Pack is an option on the Flair trim which adds XTR badging on the front doors, black door mirrors and roof bars, 17-inch alloy wheels,  fog light surrounds and body-coloured front and rear skid plates.
