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

Along with the other Rip Curl special edition branding, this model has dual-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors and a reversing camera.

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.
