There are actually two Citroen Berlingo variants: the van, which takes the name without change, and the Berlingo Multispace MPV, which is a heavily adapted version of the van designed to carry multiple passengers.
The current Berlingo van was updated in 2018 ahead of a complete overhaul in 2019, but despite its age, the existing shape van is still current and up-to-date with the latest emissions requirements and can still match rivals including the Ford Transit Custom, Vauxhall Combo and Volkswagen Caddy.
The Citroen Berlingo shares its chassis, engine and much of the bodywork with the Peugeot Partner, and both vans are available in two lengths - L1 and L2 – with just one standard roof height.
New Euro 6- compliant engines were introduced in 2015, chief of which was the arrival of a a 1.6-litre BlueHDI unit in three differing power outputs: 75bhp, 100bhp and 120bhp. A six-speed automated manual transmission (called ETG6) was also brought in, while a six-speed manual was made standard on the two higher power engines, leaving the entry-level model to get a five-speed gearbox.
The Berlingo has three trim options: entry-level X, mid-range LX and range-topping Enterprise, which gets a neatly integrated 7-in touchscreen.
There is also an XTR+ version of the Berlingo that aims to take you a little further off-road thanks to its traction control system and slightly higher ground clearance. A crew van that allows up to five occupants as well as moderate load carrying capacity is also available, as is an electric version, called the Citroen Berlingo Electric.
