The Citroen Berlingo is a highly practical, functional and versatile model that ensures an enjoyable travelling experience for driver and passengers alike. Shaping up with a bold, modern exterior and a spacious, comfortable interior, it ticks every box in both the 5 and 7-seater MPV markets.
Pitched as ‘The ultimate leisure activity vehicle’, the Berlingo has lots of exterior features to back up this claim. The body is sleek and dynamic, with modern lines and a distinctive Airbump design. The front is especially striking; comprising a shorter, raised grille alongside the unique brand two-tier lighting which includes fog lights and LED daytime running lights. The windscreen is set forward to increase space/brightness, and improve the view of the road ahead. The roof bars – also Airbump design – represent the robust strength of the bodywork, and provide extra storage space for family travels. The Berlingo is available in 2 sizes: the standard Medium size of 4.40m long and; the XL option which measures 4.75m.
The inside of the Berlingo can be accessed via two easy-to-use sliding doors, and an opening tailgate window. Citroen Advanced Comfort is used throughout, ensuring high-quality seating, suspension and passenger space. The interior is bright, supported by the large panoramic glass roof. The rear row of seats in both the 5 and 7-seater models can be folded, increasing the 5-seater model boot volume to 775 litres. The XL version can reach an incredible load volume of 4000 litres with all seats folded. Load space is increased further by the innovative Modutop technology – an aircraft-style storage area which adds another 92 litres. The Modutop provides further value through individual air vents and large glass panels which improve the feel of the car.
The 8” in-built touchscreen boasts a selection of features to ensure you are always connected. These include Citroen 3D Connect navigation and Mirror Screen technology, allowing you to connect/charge your smartphone and access your calls and music library. Many safety features are also prominent – including Blind Spot Monitoring System, Collision Risk Alert, Hill Start Assist and Lane Departure Warning System – all of which are designed to aid driving efficiency. Front parking sensors and a reversing camera support alongside Park Assist to make parking as effortless as possible.
The Citroen Berlingo has a choice of petrol and diesel engines, each returning low emissions and an impressive fuel economy. The 1.5L BlueHDi 100 S&S and 1.5L BlueHDi S&S ETG6 options can produce up to 130bhp, as can the 1.2L Puretech petrol option. The model is available in a range of colours, such as Soft Sand, Platinum Grey and Onyx Black.
