Hugely practical, improved quality over predecessor, economical diesels, spacious cabin
Too many items restricted to the options list, some interior plastics feel cheap
Spacious, practical and brimming with family-friendly features, the Citroen Berlingo Multispace is a five-seat people carrier for buyers on a budget. It sits between the cheaper Xsara Picasso and stylish C4 Picasso in the Citroen range but, unlike its predecessor, is no longer based on a van. Instead it uses car underpinnings is comfortable and surprisingly good to drive as a result. Citroën has included even more clever and practical features but although it is more sophisticated than before, some no-frills evidence creeps through in the lower specification models which only have basic safety features.

A major update in 2015 ushered in more equipment, more safety kit, five efficient diesel engines and a new seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The maximum CO2 emissions for any version is just 115g/km, so tax is going to be seriously cheap.
