The Citroen Berlingo has been named ‘Best Large Car’ at recent awards
The Citroen Berlingo has been named ‘Best Large Car’ at Autocar’s ‘Britain’s Best Car Awards’ 2020. Up against other popular brands, the Citroen Berlingo has pipped others in the running to take the coveted accolade. Citroen are proud to add this recent achievement to other awards that the Berlingo has won since its launch in 2018, including What Car? ‘MPV of the Year’ 2020 and ‘Best Medium Family Car’ in the Parkers ‘New Car Awards’ 2020.
The Citroen Berlingo was described by judges as being both practical, likeable and exceptionally versatile as well as offering an abundance of space, ideal for family adventures. Meeting this key criteria was what allowed the Citroen Berlingo to take the trophy for this category.
The Citroen Berlingo exudes a strong, assertive character and a range of unique design features that make it stand out from the crowd, including Airbump design and colour inserts, making it the ultimate activity vehicle.
Available in two lengths to suit your own requirements, the Citroen Berlingo makes travelling with large families a breeze. The M model can carry up to five passengers whereas the XL model can transport up to seven comfortably, whilst still leaving plenty of luggage space in the boot area.
The Citroen Berlingo is also available in a range of striking body colour to suit your preference and personality, including Deep Blue, Passion Red and Aqua Green.
The Berlingo also benefits from the Citroen Advanced Comfort Programme, offering comfortable seats, suspension and high-quality acoustics as standard.
What are the features of the Citroen Berlingo
The large panoramic glass roof offers excellent visibility and natural lighting for a more comfortable journey, which can be concealed by an electric blind if required.
With first class accessibility, the Citroen Berlingo has two sliding doors and an opening boot window. The modular design allows you to alter the layout of the seats to suit your needs; if you are travelling with large leisure items or luggage, you may want to increase the boot space.
The XL version, with the passenger seat folded down, offers 4,000 litres of load space and 3 metres of length for storage. The luggage shelf itself can handle loads up to 25kg so there is no need to take up passenger space for additional luggage.
The Berlingo also comes with a host of technology features that make living with it incredibly convenient. The driver assist features, including Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Monitoring System make driving long distances or motorway driving a doddle.
The driver and passengers can stay completely connected with an 8” touchscreen that can mirror your smartphone and real time traffic with TomTom services, free for 3 years.
What is it like to drive
For those who enjoy adventurous trips, the Berlingo offers dynamic handling as well as Grip Control with Hill Descent Assist, to ensure grip on all road surfaces, including rough terrain.
The 8-speed automatic transmission offers optimum driving comfort and those who will be towing large or heavy items, there is Trailer Stability Assist available to aid the driver with their journey.
