The new Citroen Berlingo is renewed with more design and more comfort
The new Citroen Berlingo has only been on our streets and roads for a year. However, it has been long enough for the French model to be successful in the Spanish market.
Heir to a saga that has left an important mark in our country since 1996, this new generation is committed to a design that approaches the SUV universe and a practical vocation that allows it to be the ideal companion in any adventure.
Perfect for day-to-day challenges, weekend trips or summer holidays in the mountains or on the beach, it has become a true icon. It stands out for its manoeuvrability, lighter weight and excellent technological level, with no less than 19 innovative driving aids. In addition, with the aim of increasing comfort, a specific suspension adjustment has been made thanks to Citroen's experience in this area.
In terms of connectivity, the new Berlingo has new features, such as the wireless recharging system for smartphones, which make everyday life easier for the user. When it was launched in Spain, the new Citroen Berlingo took on the weight of continuing the leadership of its predecessors in the category of multi-purpose vehicles. Twelve months later, the model has proven its mission, with more than 25,000 orders and a 24 percent market share.
A success that is gaining more and more followers. In fact, sales of this model are growing three times faster than the segment as a whole. Pablo Puey, Citroen's general manager for Spain and Portugal, says: "Versatility, interior space, comfort and adaptability make the Citroen Berlingo an ideal vehicle both for everyday use and for leisure trips with family and friends.
“Today, Berlingo gives a new meaning to the word polyvalence. The new generation anticipates people's needs by offering useful technologies, connectivity and a unique, modern design. “Its customisation possibilities also allow for the creation of a vehicle as unique as the people who travel on board.”
The new Citroen Berlingo stands out for its style and is a breath of fresh air in the multi-purpose segment. In fact, the manufacturer has made important evolutions in its new model, which stands out for its unique silhouette and personality, its robust design and flowing lines without any aggressiveness.
The new Berlingo is distinguished by its strong features, made possible by the adoption of the EMP2 platform and shorter cantilevers. In addition, it has a higher and shorter bonnet, which gives the feeling of dominating the road, a front with identity and widened, integrating the signature light on two levels, and an advanced windshield that provides more space and brightness.
The model offers a wide range of eight different body colours outdoors: Sand, Aqua Green, Artense Grey, Platinum Grey, Onyx Black, Deep Blue, Ardent Red and Banquise White.
The cabin has also been completely redesigned following the Citroen spirit. The new Berlingo stands out for its dashboard, with a horizontally worked, clear and refined design, as well as for its elevated driving position.
For the first time, the model offers two bodies while retaining its robust morphology. Modern and playful, the new Berlingo is available in two sizes with balanced dimensions and lines. The standard size M measures 2 cm more than the previous generation, while the new Long version or XL size gains 35 cm.
This Berlingo has a first-class accessibility for passengers, thanks to its two wide sliding and very functional side doors, which can now equip windows that are lowered electrically. It also offers a large tailgate for suitcases, giving access to a large boot.
The new Citroen Berlingo has 28 large and intelligent storage spaces designed for everyday use, for a total of up to 186 litres of space. It can therefore be concluded that the model is designed to leave objects of all sizes, personal effects, pens or car documents in it on a daily basis.
It has a luminous cabin, thanks to its important glazed surface of 6.4 m2, constituted by its great windshield, its lateral glasses -that now are descending on the sliding doors- and its rear custodians.
It has an efficient architecture that offers even more functionality. In addition, it has increased manoeuvrability, optimised weight and the latest driving aids, always with performance and people in mind.
The new Berlingo has no less than 19 driving assistance functions, including the colour Head-Up Display, Active Lane Departure Warning, Driver Attention Indicator, Recommended Rest Indicator or Traffic Sign Recognition and Speed Recommendations.
In addition, four connectivity technologies make the new Berlingo a vehicle that offers a continuity between the digital universe of the person and their vehicle, to stay connected at all times. It offers the Mirror Screen function with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink, Citroën ConnectNav, and Citroën Connect Box with SOS Pack and support included, as well as wireless recharging for the smartphone.
The buyer can choose between petrol and diesel engines, adapted to all uses (petrol range 1.2 PureTech 110 S&S 6v and PureTech 130 S&S EAT8 or diesel range 1.5 BlueHDi 75, BlueHDi 100, BlueHDi 130 S&S 6v or EAT8).
