Review

For the money the Citroën Berlingo offers unrivalled interior space, and a relaxing ride. It's also better-trimmed inside then a 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 Volkswagen Touran, though.

Trim: Flair

Flair adds rear parking sensors, electric rear windows, sat-nav and an electronic parking brake, but we'd stick with the cheaper Feel model.

Engine: 1.5 BlueHDi 130

This 128bhp engine is our pick of the diesels. It is remarkably smooth and refined for a diesel engine, and has lots of useful low-down grunt that’ll be great for those who regularly carry large loads or lots of people, if you opt for the seven-seat model. It also offers great fuel economy if you do lots of motorway miles. It's available with a slick, eight-speed automatic gearbox, which feels like a perfect fit with this engine.
