The new VAB group of compact MPV models in the new Citroen Berlingo body moved to a new platform (combining the modular EMP2 platform so that the front and rear compact suspension is borrowed from its predecessor) became the first-born French automotive giant, following the debut of a new generation of platform brothers Peugeot Partner and Opel Combo.

The new Citroen Berlingo generation will appear recently, but this will not happen until mid-2019.
The Berlingo model for Citroen is a real bestseller and Lokomotiv. Since the launch of the first generation "heel" in 1996, the French manufacturer has managed to sell 22 years, more than 3,300,000 copies of small vans and compact vans with the original name Berlingo. Thus, at the end of last 2017, the predecessor of the new Citroen Berlingo 2 generation became the most popular Citroen model in 17 countries. Thus, the third generation models are simply obliged to consolidate and surpass the achievements of their predecessors.
The new Citroen Berlingo is traditionally offered to customers as a utilitarian cargo van (two varieties), and in the format of a compact van in two versions of the Berlingo m – standard wheelbase dimensions of 2780 mm and a 5-seater saloon and the Berlingo XL stretches to 2970 base, the overall body length is increased, 5-seat cabin and available as an option 7-seat saloon. Also promised were crossover versions of the Citroen Berlingo XTR and a full off-road body kit and a clutch control system that assists off-road driving with individual settings for traction control.
In our review, we will talk about the passenger version of the Citroen Berlingo new start in a stylish design, which received a front two-story head optics, like crossovers and Citroen C3 for a promotion for a promotion for Citroen C5 and Citroen C3 hatchback and Citroen C4 cactus. The new French compact MPV looks cool and original from the front thanks to this aesthetic arrangement of LED position lights and main headlights.
While the rest of the details complement the “face" of the product: the hood has a stylish height, a neat radiator grille, massive bumpers with hard plastic lining and foglights in deep drawers.
Looking at the body of the new generation of the French compact van, I catch myself thinking that the designers tried to keep the proportions, lines and even the shape of the predecessor’s side windows familiar to buyers, which gives them a better idea (customers will surely like the continuity of generations). The body of the new generation looks more strict and solid, in a word, the new Berlingo has grown.
- The external dimensions of the body of the Citroen Berlingo (Citroen Berlingo XL) 2018-2019 year are 4400 mm (4750 mm), 1850 mm wide, 1810 mm high, 2780 mm (2970 mm) wheelbase.
It remains only to supplement our story about the new Citroen Berlingo body with a few details that distinguish the new product from its predecessor: the front overhang of the body has become more compact, the hood is noticeably higher, the windshield frame has moved forward, there are Airbump linings protecting the side doors from minor damage due to the negligence of other owners on parking lots, parking lights and it was partially led content.
Inside the new 3 generation Berlingo is so effectively transformed and multifaceted that it takes your breath away. Let’s start the review of the cabin … with the luggage compartment. The trunk of the Berlingo m version with a standard wheelbase is able to take 775 liters behind the backs of the second row of seats. The manufacturer does not indicate the maximum useful volume of the trunk, but says that if you order a convertible front passenger seat, you can carry items up to 2700 mm long in the Berlingo m cabin and up to 3050 mm long in the Berlingo XL. Then even more pleasant bonuses await buyers in the salon.
The seats in the second row, as in the pre-reform model, are separate, but now ISOFIX attachments are present not only on the side seats, but also on the Central chair. Place the power slide in the rear doors took the traditional sliding window with power windows. But most importantly, the presence of a new rear seat transformation system, which makes it easy to fold the rear row of seats, the rear seat backs are flush with the trunk floor.
In the cabin of the new Citroen Berlingo generation, 28 are provided !!! compartments, niches and reservoirs, including two in the glove compartment on the front panel for storing small luggage with a total volume of 186 liters. Owners who find that storage space will not be enough, as the options offered by the Modutop multifunctional roof (92 l).
All seats in the cabin will appreciate the dense padding, the correct anatomical back profile and solid lateral support. Well, the interior and its level of equipment is a real breakthrough compared to the interior of its predecessor. The photo shows rich interior options for the Citroen Berlingo and what we see is impressive. In the presence of a clearly readable instrument panel, multifunctional steering wheel with art trim lower rim multimedia system (rear-view camera, navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) with a free-standing 8-inch color display, head-up display, proximity entry system and start button /stop, dual-zone climate control, electric handbrake.
