New Berlingo is equipped with latest-generation technologies and engines that offer customers a more comfortable driving experience:

  • 19 driver aids, including Colour Head-up Display, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop Function, Electric Parking Brake, Reversing Camera with Top Rear Vision, Grip Control® with Hill Descent Assist, and Trailer Stability Control.

New Berlingo also benefits from a new platform and Citroën’s Advanced Comfort Programme®:

  • Utilisation of the EMP2 platform at the front of the vehicle improves manoeuvrability (electric power steering and turning circle), optimises the weight of the car and provides for the latest driver assistance systems. The rear part of the previous platform is retained to maximise load volume and to preserve the width between the wheel arches.
  • Suspension settings use Citroën’s know-how for peerless comfort.
