Citroen Berlingo review covering 1998 - 2008

Citroen Berlingo review covering 1998 - 2008

Monday 3 March 2008

The Citroen 2CV was legendary for its design parameters. It had to be able to drive across a ploughed field, driven by a man with a hat on, whilst not breaking a basket of eggs. The Citroen Berlingo Multispace has found itself cast as the 2CV’s eventual successor. Whilst unlikely to find itself representing an icon of rural Gallic charm, the Berlingo has its plus points. In a mini-MPV sector where mere appliance of the word ‘lifestyle’ is a passport to manufacturers ramping up the prices, the Berlingo entered at the bottom and aimed to stay there. With its commercial vehicle basis, development costs were minimised. Along with its rival, the Renault Kangoo, the Berlingo Multispace inhabited a niche pioneered by miniature glazed Suzuki vans of the past. It may be relatively cheap, but a used Berlingo does cheerful very well.
