    My car

    My daughters (aged seven and ten) were cramped in my Vauxhall Astra but loved my wife's Zafira. 'Change you car, Dad', they said. After test-driving the Hyundai Matrix, Kia Carens, Vauxhall Meriva and Citroen Picasso, I travelled with a friend to Belgium in his Berlingo and was hooked.

    What a surprise - it has a wonderful driving position, bags of space, averages 53.5mpg and it simply purrs along on the motorway. And what great value - new it cost just £10,600 (including air-conditioning, and auto lights and wipers). Forget the looks, try one.

    My car

    I am one of the lucky first UK owners of a Berlingo Series III (October 2005 on).

    Citroen has further tweaked the interior and exterior design of Berlingo series II (2002 on) and deleted the 1.9-litre and 2.0-litre diesels. Instead, you get the stunning 1.6 HDi in either 75bhp or 92bhp format.

    This makes for a great package; the improvements inside and out are subtle but good, particularly the improved rear door handles, seats, and the inclusion of four airbags as standard.

    The real gem, though, is that 1.6 HDi - it's lighter than the 1.6 petrol, yet with more power than the 2.0-litre diesel. The car is now quick and very fuel efficient - 54mpg is my current average. The driving position takes a little getting used to, but it's pretty good and refinement is high.

    My car

    Cheap, cheerful and reliable. In fact, anyone who treats cars as status symbols should be forced to own one for a few months. This is a motoring tool that delivers without fuss or flamboyance. It is a wonderful little machine. As we say in the family, it's the automotive equivalent of big knickers.

    My car

    Apart from a few electrical niggles (airbag warning light, horn) all sorted under warranty I am very impressed with the practicality and reliability of this car.

    Get used to the fact that it is not a performance car and won't drive like one and you will not be disapointed.

    Far more comfortable than you would expect considering it's comercial origins.

    The 1.9D easily returns 45MPG Next time I have the multispace on my shotlist but probably the HDI Would be my next choice.
