With its high roofline and slab-sided image, the Berlingo van sets its stall out as a van with acres of room inside. There is also a good driving position thanks in large part to the easily adjustable seats but also due to the excellent visibility and commanding view of the road. The loading area is versatile and easy to access, whether you have the optional side sliding door or not. Ride noise and engine noise is minimal, making the driving experience more like a car than a commercial vehicle. It is well equipped too with all models getting ABS brakes, electric front windows, remote central locking and a CD stereo. With simple mechanics and tried and tested engines, this is a car that owners can rest assured will deliver reliability as well as practicality. The smooth 1.6HDi diesel engine (available in 75 or 90bhp variants) provide excellent pulling power with decent economy.
