For For the price of a supermini, you can buy the vast space that a family needs. What’s perhaps more surprising is that the Citroen Berlingo Multispace is also a civilised car to drive
Against Although it’s based on the smart-looking C4 Picasso, the Berlingo looks more like a van than a car. Plus, there’s very meagre equipment (particularly safety kit) on the most basic versions
What Car? says
If you’re looking for a spacious, practical family MPV at a low price, the Citroen Berlingo Multispace makes a good choice. Avoid the weakest petrol engine if you’ll regularly carry heavy loads

It’s important to decide how you plan to use your Citroen Berlingo Multispace before you decide which engine will be best for you. The petrol engine has enough oomph for it to keep up with family hatchbacks, but it's worth going for something a little stronger (ie diesel) if you plan on regularly carrying full loads.
Before you buy any Citroen – and the Berlingo is no exception – check websites and phone dealers to check the latest offers. The company’s own website is a good place to start, with an ‘Offers’ section that you can click through to from each car’s ‘homepage’.
Also, given that the basic specification is pretty sparse and you may well be buying some options, look closely at the various 'packs', which bundle together some useful options at tempting prices.
