Inside, the Citroën Berlingo shares many of its fixtures and fittings with the Vauxhall Combo Cargo. It looks smart and feels well put together, and for a small van it is also spacious. You’ll find 15 storage compartments dotted around, including under-seat trays and narrow but useful door pockets.
The Berlingo van is available with either two or three seats up front, the central seat of the three-seat version can be folded down for use as a table. An 8in colour touchscreen is the central point of the dashboard, and is standard on Enterprise and Driver versions. It supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring, and includes sat-nav too. It’s also angled slightly towards the driver, providing a better viewing experience than the very similar touchscreen in the Ford Transit Connect.
That screen helps the Berlingo's interior to feel very driver-centric, and it's all the better for it. Visibility is great both forwards and backwards, and is aided by the option of a live rear-view mirror display (essentially a wide-angled view of the rear parking camera) and a blindspot camera for seeing down the sides of the van. On models without the touchscreen, you simply get a Bluetooth enabled DAB radio integrated into the centre console.
