2019 New Citroën Berlingo Review and Images
For the past 12 years the Citroën Berlingo has been one of the main players in the small van playground, racking up millions of miles over the country and getting filled with anything from car parts to Alsatians, nicely demonstrating the folding seats by Citroën here
Everyone knows the Berlingo and Peugeot Partner are pretty much the same apart from badges some small trim differences, now another brand hustles in on the winning mix the new Vauxhall Combo is built from the same platform.
Obviously as PSA bought Vauxhall/Opel last year they’re starting to swap Vauxhall models onto their own platforms, so you have a choice of three brands to get a similar van plus more on the market and hopefully good deals as they come onto the used market.
The new model has a chunkier profile like its big brother the Dispatch van launched in 2016, it’s still very much a Berlingo though and cuts its own path rather than copying other makes on offer.
Air bumpers on the side are going to be a life saver for city drivers and car park regulars. The air bump mouldings started off looking a bit odd on the Cactus back in 2014, now the design looks normal and guess what? They actually work, door dents saved!
Previous LWB models had a bodged lump of metal added before the rear end on each side, making it look like a right eyesore, no chance you’d be getting one over a VW Caddy LWB. This has been rectified on the 2019 models with longer length full quarter panels added keeping the flush look making it a contender for the LWB small van title. It’s already been crowned 2019 International Van of The Year so it’s on path for greatness.
Starting at £15,825 + VAT for the base models, with finance offers you can be driving one from £200 a month.
