What Car? says...
MPVs like the Citroën Berlingo were the Multi Purpose Vehicles before SUVs started getting in on the act, and still provide a solution for almost every practical eventuality.
They're designed to get as many things as possible from one place to the next – much like a van, in fact – so what better way to build one than start with an actual van? That's what Citroën did with the Berlingo (previously the Multispace), providing no-frills, practical motoring for cost-conscious families.
This current version aims to fix that by offering improved refinement and more luxury and safety features. It also comes in two body styles: a shorter one (M) with five seats and a longer one (XL) with seven. Read on through this review to find out whether the current Citroën Berlingo really is easier to live with, and whether it's a practical choice for your family.
Remember, if you do decide to buy an MPV – or a new vehicle of any make and model – you could save thousands by using the What Car? New Car Buying service to find great prices on whichever one you choose, including plenty of new Berlingo deals.
