Citroen Berlingo

The new Citroen Berlingo retains the styling of the old car but the Peugeot 5008 shared platform increases the length and width but the roofline is a little lower than the old car, meaning there is even more room for up to five (you are not aware of the decrease in height) 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 will offers seven seats.

 

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.

The option to ad XTR pack to top trim Flair adds £600/£650 to the AP in some trims.
