Latest News: Citroën Berlingo has won the prestigious title of ‘Best Medium Family Car’ in the Parkers New Car Awards 2020. The multi-award winning leisure activity vehicle was praised for its class-leading space, practicality and comfort. This award in the hotly contested ‘Best Medium Family Car’ category is the latest accolades for Citroën’s iconic leisure activity vehicle, Berlingo. The model impressed the Parkers judging panel with its class-leading interior space, practicality and advanced comfort for all the family. Karl Howkins, Citroën UK’s Managing Director, accepted the trophy on behalf of the brand at the companies head office in Coventry. Since its launch late last year, Berlingo has soared in popularity and has scooped multiple awards including What Car? ‘MPV of the Year’ 2019, Auto Express ‘MPV of the Year’ 2019 and AutoBest ‘Best Buy Car of Europe’ 2019. Adam Binnie, New Cars Editor at Parkers, was clearly impressed with the amount of room inside Berlingo, pointing out that: “The main attraction is this car’s brilliant use of space in what is a relatively compact car.” Karl Howkins added: “It’s great to see that Berlingo has won yet another award, especially in such a competitive category. Citroën is proud to design vehicles that are inspired by our customers needs, and Berlingo is no different. Driver and passenger comfort takes priority for us, so it’s great to see Berlingo being praised for its excellent interior space, practicality and the resulting levels of comfort throughout.” Citroën Berlingo boasts outstanding interior modularity with a class-leading boot volume (up to the parcel shelf) of between 775-litres on medium (M) versions and 1,050-litres on XL versions, coupled with an exceptionally low load sill and a uniform shape to the load area. With its family friendly focus, all second row seats benefit from Isofix child seat mounting points with top tether, whilst XL models benefit from 35cm of additional overall length to accommodate a third row with two removable seats. In July 2019, the new range-topping ‘Flair XTR’ version was introduced to satisfy unprecedented demand for upper trim levels in the Berlingo range. In addition to the host of standard equipment already present on the ‘Flair’ version, ‘Flair XTR’ brings additional features including a head-up display, keyless entry and start as well as the innovative Modutop Roof® that combines a panoramic glass sunroof with a floating translucent storage compartment on medium (M) length versions. Rear seating also offers optimum versatility, with three individual and equal width seats on ‘Flair XTR’ versions. For our latest offers on the Citroën Berlingo, click here

NEW CITROEN BERLINGO VAN ADDS THREE MORE ACCOLADES TO THE GROWING LIST AT THE ALL-NEW COMPANY VAN TODAY AWARDS 2019

New Citroën Berlingo Van has been awarded ‘Van of the Year’ and ‘Light Van of the Year’ in the very first Company Van Today awards. The innovative Overload Indicator technology available to order on New Citroën Berlingo was also recognised, clinching the magazine’s first ‘Technology Award’. New Citroën Berlingo Van has carried off no less than three awards in the inaugural Company Van Today Awards 2019. New Berlingo Van has been awarded the all-important ‘Van of the Year’ and ‘Light Van of the Year’ in the very first Company Van Today Awards. It doesn’t stop there for Citroën’s newest van either. New Berlingo Van is available with 20 driver assistance systems, all designed to provide a safer and less stressful environment for van drivers. One such technology is the Overload Indicator, which warns the driver if the vehicle is overloaded. Overloading is an offence and can adversely affect vehicle handling as well as fuel consumption. In addition, it can also cause accelerated wear on components, including braking, suspension and transmission parts. Company Van Today has presented its very first ‘Technology Award’ to the Overload Indicator technology, designed to combat the very real issue of overloading, available on New Berlingo Van. Tom Webster, Company Van Today’s Editor, commented: “Citroen has really hit the spot with the new Berlingo Van, a van that is clever, good to drive, efficient and stylish. Class-leading tech including the pioneering Overload Indicator makes for a van at the very top of its game and a worthy CVT Van of the Year 2019 winner.” The Company Van Today Awards reward the best vehicles in the industry, those light commercials that offer fleets a combination of great running costs, high quality, efficiency and clever features that help businesses do their jobs more effectively. Carefully selected by the Company Van Today editorial team with decades of combined experience in the sector, the winners are those that can best serve a business audience. Ed Hickin, Citroën UK’s Head of Business Sales, commented: “New Berlingo Van adds yet another award to an already lengthy list, including the prestigious 2019 International Van of the Year. We are particularly proud that the UK’s newest van publication has honoured New Berlingo Van with no less than three awards and recognised the innovative technology it has to offer.” New Berlingo Van has been racking up the awards since it was launched last year. This includes ‘International Van of the Year’ 2019, ‘Fleet Van of the Year’ in the 2019 Fleet World Great British Fleet Awards, ‘Light Commercial Vehicle of the Year’ and ‘Light Van of the Year’ at the 2019 What Van? Awards, ‘Small Van of the Year’ from Company Car and Van magazine and ‘Van of the Year’ and ‘Best Small Van’ in the 2019 Trade Van Driver magazine awards. New Berlingo Van is now available with the latest 1.5-litre Euro 6.2 / 6.D TEMP BlueHDi 75, 100 and 130 diesel engines as well as the very latest Euro 6.3 / 6.D 1.2-litre PureTech 110 petrol engine. An eight-speed automatic transmission (EAT8) is available as an option with the 1.5-litre BlueHDi 130 engine. Find our latest Berlingo offer here.

New Citroën Berlingo was named ‘MPV of the Year’ at the prestigious What Car? Car of the Year Awards in London earlier this evening. The judges praised the model for its spaciousness, efficiency and passenger comfort. With more than 25,000 orders already placed worldwide since its launch in September 2018, New Berlingo – Citroën’s third-generation Leisure Activity Vehicle – has scooped the ‘MPV of the Year’ prize at this evening’s What Car? Car of the Year Awards. What Car?’s panel of judges recognised New Citroën Berlingo for its generous interior space, outstanding ride quality and competitive fuel efficiency. Steve Huntingford, Editor at What Car?, who presented the trophy at this year’s glittering ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, said; “New Berlingo offers so much for so little. You’ll be hard pushed to find something so cavernous for the money. And with a ride that’s comfier than that of its rivals, which cost a lot more, similar levels of performance and fine economy, New Berlingo is a great all-rounder”. As one of the forerunners in the Leisure Activity Vehicle sector since 1996, Berlingo passenger models have been referred to as ‘vehicles for every occasion’. New Berlingo features class-leading interior modularity, including three individual rear seats and a new-generation Modutop® multi-function roof. Karl Howkins, Managing Director at Citroën UK, who accepted the award said; “It’s a huge honour to receive this accolade for New Citroën Berlingo. We are proud to say that all our vehicles are inspired by our customers and New Berlingo is no different. Driver and passenger comfort is our passion, and it’s great to see this latest addition to the range being recognised for exactly that, not to mention its fuel economy, practicality and flexibility.”
