Citroen Berlingo Van Review

October 12th, 2022

The Citroen Berlingo Van at a glance

The Citroen Berlingo Van is one of the most reliable vans on the market. It is optimised for business or personal use, having enough storage space and seats for whatever you need. The iconic Citroen brand shines through in this model, offering the same classic and reliable experience you can expect from any Citroen vehicle.

It is seen as one of the best multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs) available, with a great capacity for haulage and the ability to carry a crew comfortably. The Citroen Berlingo has been one of the most popular models on the market, with new iterations being released since 1996. Now in its third generation, it remains a reliable van for professionals and has been gradually refined and improved over time. It’s an extremely popular model, with Citroen selling over 3 million Berlingo’s since release. It’s so popular in fact, that in 2021 Citroen released their electric version, the e-Berlingo.

Here at Van Sales UK, we have put together this guide to the Citroen Berlingo Van, so you can find out more about its best features and why it’s a good choice for your business or personal use.

Engines and Spec

Overall the engine performance and overall driving of the Citroen Berlingo is great. It uses the latest generation engines, available in both petrol and diesel. The petrol engine is a PureTech 1110 hp Stop&Start, with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The efficient engines provide real driving comfort, dynamic handling and help to optimise usage costs.

The Berlingo Van is available in four distinct Blue HDi diesel engines. This includes horsepower options of between 75-130, and either a 6-speed manual gearbox or an automatic option with an 8-speed gearbox. The e-Berlingo also has a 100kW engine and provides near-silent driving.

It comes with a variety of safety features built-in and as extras, including adaptive cruise control, collision risk alert, active safety brake, keyless entry, intelligent headlights and more.

Different body types also offer unique benefits for different functions. The Worker version is great for transporting equipment and employees, while the Driver is well suited for workers who need to make long journeys or traverse urban areas with ease.

You can also benefit from the My Citroen assist, which you can link with the My Citroen app to keep you connected and help you navigate. Overall all of these specs combine to offer low running costs and great value for money.


The interior of the Citroen Berlingo is perfect for whatever function you need. It has a box exterior shape, which allows the inside to have excellent boot space and cabin space for the driver and passengers. The cabin is comfortable and spacious and can be quickly transformed into a mobile office if needed.

The Citroen Berlingo was one of the first vans to add plenty of windows and seats to their vans, which many other brands quickly copped onto and replicated. It creates the feeling that the van is not just a commercial vehicle, but a vehicle suited for anyone to drive.

In terms of storage, you can expect a large glove box, deep cubbies and over clever storage spaces. It has up to a 100kg payload, with rear doors and side doors for easy access to whatever you are carrying

There are two body types available, with the larger model able to have an additional row of seats, perfect for if you are trying to transport a large crew. While being a van, it evokes feelings of cars and SUVs in its styling, making it stylish to drive as well as performing well.
