Citroen Berlingo Multispace
The Citroen Berlingo Multispace is an MPV based on a van, that looks like one too, but one that is exceptional nonetheless. In a genre where cutting edge design seems to be all important, the Citroen ignores it all and goes its own way. With a somewhat understated French charm, it’s leagues ahead in terms of practicality and never fails to make people think twice.
The original Berlingo was introduced in 1996 and early models did indeed look like panel vans with windows. But several facelifts and upgrades later, the outward van appearance has been somewhat minimised and modern versions look more like cars. Despite this, popularity has never wavered because people who want something with a huge amount of space simply can’t find anything better. It really is very good indeed.
The interior carries on the ‘what you see is what you get’ nature of the car to great effect and is solid, well organised and durable. There are lots of storage spaces and things like cup holders, so you can’t argue with its convenience. The boot is gargantuan in size, and is one of the main attractions. With up to 7 seats too, it’s ideal for large families.
On the road the Berlingo Multispace is easy to drive and handles well. The ride is comfortable and actually it feels more like a car than a van, which is excellent. While it’s not exactly fast, it’ll always get you there thanks to several different petrol and diesel engine options. It is set up for economical driving after all. Add some impressive safety features to the mix and keep in mind its commercial DNA, and really the Berlingo is one tidy package that lets you drive with confidence and get the job done every day.
At Motors.co.uk there are literally thousands of different cars for sale, so finding a used Citroen Berlingo Multispace is incredibly easy. The great thing about buying a second hand car is that you’ll pay significantly less and ultimately end up with a lot of bang for your buck. With the Citroen in particular which is all about economy and value for money, going the pre owned route is a no-brainer!
So with the Berlingo Multispace you get a car that’s exceptionally good at what it does. Practicality, versatility and economy are all hallmarks of this model, and actually it can outperform most people carriers in all areas. If you don’t mind the slightly commercial nature and design, there’s not much that can rival the Citroen, so check it out and see for yourself.
