New Citroen Berlingo Van Crowned International Van of the Year 2019
Citroen Berlingo Van wins International Van of the Year 2019 award after major update.
The new Citroen Berlingo Van won the International Van of the Year 2019 award following a major redesign. The new-style Berlingo will start making appearances in Britain in Q4 of 2018, offering a range of new updates designed to improve everyday life with the van.
The bonnet has been shortened and heightened, and there will be two sizes available at launch: M and XL, 4.40m and 4.75m in length respectively. They offer payloads of up to 1,000kg on the M category, or 950kg on the XL. Rear wheel arch space has been optimised to carry Euro-pallets.
Four trim levels will be available to choose from: X, Enterprise, Worker and Driver, each with a varying specification:
X: Standard equipment includes a nearside sliding door, full bulkhead, automatic headlights, Hill Start Assist, Citroën Connect Box with Emergency & Assistance system, and DAB radio with hands free Bluetooth® functionality.
Worker: In addition to the specification of the X trim, and unique to Worker, this version comes as standard with Overload Indicator, Grip Control® with Hill Descent Assist, Michelin Latitude Mud & Snow tyres, increased ground clearance (+30mm), and underbody protection. The Worker model is ideal for building site use, for example.
Enterprise: This trim also builds on the X specification, adding air conditioning, rear parking sensors, 8-inch colour touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple Car Play™ and MirrorLink®, plus an automatic electronic parking brake, the EXTENSO® modular folding seat, and front fog lights with cornering function.
Driver: This trim level is based on the Enterprise version, and adds automatic windscreen wipers, Magic Wash® and integrated steering wheel controls. Other features include Citroën Connect Nav with an 8-inch touchscreen, Surround Rear Vision, and a six-way adjustable driver seat that has lumbar adjustment and under seat storage. The Driver version is ideal for users who spend a significant amount of time in the vehicle, making deliveries for example.
75bhp, 100bhp and 130bhp engine outputs are available on the Berlingo. 75bhp is standard on all but the Driver trim, which offers an entry-level 100bhp engine. The high-power 130bhp model can be added on the Enterprise trim level or above.
