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.

Top-spec XTR trim has a head-up display, privacy glass, an opening tailgate window, a panoramic sunroof and 17in alloy wheels.

This engine is available only from stock. 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 – especially useful 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.
