Citroen Berlingo (2008–2018)

Model History

April 2008

Second generation Berlingo makes its debut

Shown at the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham, UK. Previous generation Berlingo continues as Berlingo First. The first Citroen Berlingo arrived in 1996 and very quickly established itself as a favourite with van users everywhere. Its passenger car-like performance, handling and comfort were backed up by decent load space and practicality. When Citroen came to launch the second generation Berlingo, they proved they had listened to customers by making the new van larger in every crucial dimension while still making it good to drive.
