The third generation of the Citroen Berlingo was released in 2018 and came with big improvements across the range. From the utilitarian vehicle adapted for passenger transportation it became a true MPV without forgetting its roots as a compact utility vehicle. It still has the same shape with a high roof and sliding doors on the side, but it doesn't look like it belongs to a warehouse an...

2015 - 2018

We first heard the name of Berlingo in 1996, with the launch of the Citroen’s first model. 24 year later, the Berlingo still satisfied the customer’s needs and Citroen came with a face-lifted version. Launched at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Berlingo offered the same versatility and practicality it’s used us with. The front was refreshed with a new bumper and redesigned headlights with ...

2012 - 2015

The Berlingo was the Citroen version for the Peugeot Partner, but with a slightly different design. While the MPV market was crashing, the French carmakers didn't want to give up so quickly. They found a way to cut the development and manufacturing costs by making an MPV based on an LCV. The recipe was followed by other carmakers such as Opel, Fiat, or Volkswagen. In 2008, Citroen int...

Citroen chose an interesting way to produce a small MPV that was available as a light-utility vehicle as well: it opted for a passenger car platform. While the MPVs were not so popular in Europe anymore, the French car-maker Citroen/Peugeot thought that offering a family car in an LCV body-shape would do great for those who are using a car in both directions. And that's how the Citroen B...

Following the successful launch of the C3 X-TR, the French carmaker introduced an X-TR version for its MPV Berlingo in 2006. One of the cheapest ways to make a minivan was to build it on the same platform as a light-utility vehicle. Citroen used that recipe and made the Berlingo either as a van or a passenger vehicle (named Berlingo Multispace) since 1996, with a significant facelift in 2003....

2002 - 2008

Citroen-Peugeot introduced the Berlingo/Partner duo in 1996 as a light commercial vehicle mostly for the European market and refreshed the lineup in 2002. Citroen built the Berlingo Multispace as a light commercial vehicle, and then it transformed it into a people carrier. In 2002, Europe switched to Euro 3 emission standards for LCV, and that allowed the French carmaker to postpone the intro...

1996 - 2002

Citroen was one of the most important light utility vehicles on the French market and the 1947 H Van, which was a great success for the double-chevron company. While the U.S. used the pickups as work or family cars, the Europeans chose the LCV's based on car platforms, such as the Berlingo. These were the MPVs suitable for everyone's needs. They were good as grocery getters, school ...
