The Citroen Berlingo Multispace is an incredibly practical family car that’s decent value for money. It’s spacious inside and the diesel engines are impressive
The old Berlingo was based on a van so was slightly crude but hugely useful. The new model was designed from the beginning as both a van and an MPV so it feels much more car-like to drive, even if it isn’t nearly as good as some of the dedicated MPVs like the Ford S-Max.
The unique selling point of the Berlingo is the storage and versatility that it offers – if you buy one it’ll take you weeks to figure out where all the storage bins and cubby holes are, and the high roof gives a feeling of spaciousness that few can rival.
The Citroen Berlingo Multispace may not be traditionally handsome but it's actually an incredibly practical workhorse that will serve you well
MPVs inevitably end up carrying some very precious cargo in the form of family and friends, so this is the sort of vehicle where safety will be a serious consideration. Unfortunately, the Berlingo only scored three-stars in its 2014 Euro NCAP testing.
All Berlingo models come with air-conditioning as standard but everything else on basic cars isn’t worth boasting – ABS, Stability control and a Bluetooth connection for your phone.
