Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

The raised driving position offers a great view while the high seats make access easy for all occupants. The interior design isn't the most thrilling around but it's functional and hard-wearing plus all the controls have a chunky, robust feel and the materials seem more upmarket than the previous model. Bright seat fabrics and a large glass area brighten things up and make the cabin feel spacious.

The Berlingo's cabin is pleasant thanks to its airy feel while glass roof panels can also be chosen as an option. There's room for five adults to travel in comfort, but air conditioning is optional on all but the range-topping XTR model. Electric front windows are fitted across the range and noise intrusion into the cabin has been greatly reduced compared with the original model.
