The van marketplace is a rough and tumble world where the winner is often the one that packs the most...or at least allows the most to be packed. Despite popular misconceptions bigger is truly better and it is into this market that Citro?n will be releasing their new 'Berlingo and a bit'.
Citro?n has just released the first pictures of their upsized load lugger, the long body version of the new Citro?n Berlingo van. For van aficionados, the important point to mention here is that the interior volume of the new Berlingo has increased from 3.3 to 3.7 cubic metres and up to 4.1 cubic metres with the folding front passenger seat provided by the unique Citro?n Extenso? cabin. Which simply means more room for cargo and that?s enough to put a smile on any van driver?s dial.
Based on the highly successful Citroen C4 Picasso, Citroen claim that the Berlingo further extends their reputation for building quality, technically advanced commercial vehicles that work hard and keep costs low.
Citroen Australia plans to launch the new Berlingo in Australia towards the end of the year with the long body version providing a bridge between the normal Berlingo and the newly launched Citroen Dispatch van.
Australian prices and specification will be announced when the new model goes on sale.
