The Berlingo is one of the most popular compact vans on the market that’s great for business purposes, which is why it was named 2015 Business Van of the Year. The new Berlingo is versatile, modern, smart and now it’s even more modular and functional as ever.
The exterior of the Berlingo uses the same design features as the Multispace
. The new model has body lines which maximise space inside and a new eye catching grille. It’s available in 2 lengths; L1 which has a usable volume of up to 3.7m3 and L2 which has volume up to 4.1m3. Accessing inside and unloading is made easy thanks to the asymmetric rear doors that open out 180° and the large sliding doors.
Citroen have made the van as comfortable as possible to make driving the Berlingo a pleasure. The front keeps Citroens traditional modular folding passenger bench seat, which you can configure 3 different ways for maximum ease and flexibility. You can choose to fold the outer passenger seat which compacts to the floor for extra room to carry all your equipment or select the cinema-style seat by folding up the side passenger seat so you can carry taller loads directly to the cabin. Why not turn your van into an office by folding down the central seat, so you have somewhere to place those important documents you need to hand. You don’t need to fight for room, as the Berlingo seats 3 comfortably.
Safety & Technology
Have everything at your fingertips with the 7inch touch drive interface. It’s compact design frees up room on the dashboard and provides you with a variety of features that are not usually found on a LCV. The touch screen features DAB radio, the connection of devices, audio streaming, voice recognition, directory access, double call management and a hands free function that uses Bluetooth connection.
The Berlingo has useful and intuitive safety technologies that will make your driving life simpler. The Active City Brake acts as extra pair of eyes as it prevents collisions at low speeds using a sensor on the windscreen which looks out for possible risks and activates the emergency braking if needed.
With Grip control you’ll feel safer in icy and wet conditions as the advance anti-skid function improves traction on all terrains. There is a dial that lets you choose on of 5 modes available. Grip Control ESC has the standard Hill Start Assist function, as well as Michelin Agilis tyres and engine protection.
Parking in tight spots is made a breeze with the colour rear reversing camera which turns on when the Berlingo is put into reverse and sends the image to the 7inch touchscreen, with clear guidelines to give you extra vision when making the most difficult of manoeuvres.
