Review

For the money the Citroën Berlingo offers unrivalled interior space and a relaxing ride. It's also better-trimmed inside then the Vauxhall Combo Life and slightly nicer to drive than a Peugeot Rifter – cars that are otherwise identical. If you're after something more car-like to drive or plusher, then it's worth looking at the pricier VW Touran, though.

get the best price

Flair adds 16in alloy wheels, electric rear windows, driver's adjustable lumbar support, rear picnic tables, voice recognition, eCall, three independent rear seats and an electronic parking brake – worth considering but we'd stick with the cheaper Feel model for the best value.

99bhp and low-end poke mean it's flexible enough and good for towing, but we'd still go for the more powerful petrols instead.
