Two Wins for Citroen Vans
Citroen has scooped two awards at a recent award ceremony, Company Car and Van Awards 2021.
The Citroen Berlingo, which has won various awards in the past, beat off stiff competition to be named ‘Small Van of the Year’ and the Citroen Dispatch took home the ‘Medium Van of the Year’ award.
This is the third win for the Citroen Berlingo in as many years, taking home the ‘Small Van of the Year’ award in 2019 and 2020.
The recognition only backs up what we already know about the Citroen Berlingo; it is reliable, practical and a true workhorse.
The Citroen Berlingo is the perfect option for businesses who need an economical and reliable vehicle as their everyday runaround.
The judges were quick to comment on the practicality and simplicity the Citroen Berlingo offers, stating: “The Berlingo Van does what it says on the tin. It offers a great payload, comes very well designed, and it is good to drive. Add in the tech-friendly cabin, excellent build quality and impressive full economy and you have one of the leading vans in the sector.”
The Citroen Berlingo offers excellent payload capabilities in a compact design for easy navigation around space constrained areas such as city streets or building sites.
You are spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing your Citroen Berlingo, with three specification options; Enterprise, Worker and Driver. If you need to transport up to 5 workers, there is also a Crew Van option available.
The Driver model offers surround rear vision, with a rear camera in place of a rear view mirror, ideal for driving in locations where there is a potential for additional obstacles.
Worker models include driver assist features to make navigating on tougher terrain or road surfaces, including Hill Descent Assist, keeping the driver in complete control at all times. There is also an increased payload with the Worker model, offering up to 1,000kg.
The Citroen Berlingo is ideal for those who want their work van to drive and feel more like a passenger car, with plenty of technology features. Included as standard is an 8” touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to ensure your driver stays connected at all times.
There is also the option of a manual or 8 speed automatic gearbox, depending on your preference.
For those needing that additional space, the Citroen Dispatch is also incredibly easy to maneuver around city streets or building sites, whilst offering additional payload capabilities of up to 1,400kg.
With a load volume of up to 6.5m3, the Citroen Dispatch, combined with the excellent payload, is right at the top of its class. Whether you need to transport large or awkward sized items, the Dispatch will always have your back. The keyless entry option allows you to open the sliding side doors using just a movement of your foot, a great feature if you are delivering or transporting large items, leaving your hands free to continue your work.
The Citroen Dispatch also comes in three models; Enterprise, Worker and Driver. Worker and Driver models are available in Medium or XL sizes to suit your needs. Worker models have additional Grip Control features for great performance in all weathers and environments, whereas the Driver model includes a 7” touchscreen, smart driving aids and park assist features, ensuring you to stay connected and completely safe at all times.
For those who need to transport more than the standard two passengers, the Crew Cab option allows you to seat up to six comfortably.
The Citroen Dispatch is also available as an electric van, the Citroen e-Dispatch, which has recently been awarded 'International Van of the Year' 2021, offering a range of up to 205 miles and the option to charge to 80% in just 30 minutes.
