Citroën keeps things simple with the Berlingo First, offering one petrol engine and one diesel. The petrol is a 75bhp 1.4 that surprisingly capable thanks to its free-revving nature, but the 75bhp diesel can feel sluggish, particularly when the car is heavily loaded.
Citroën BERLINGO FIRST MPV ride & handling
The Berlingo Multispace doesn't handle like the builder's transport it resembles. It's sure-footed and entertaining, although the tall body tends to lean over in corners. The ride is supple and progress is made easier by power steering and excellent all-round visibility.
Citroën BERLINGO FIRST MPV refinement
The engines are reasonably refined, although they become a bit noisy when extended, and the diesel makes itself known with its characteristic clatter. The upright windscreen and big door mirrors generate some wind noise, but it's far from terrible.
