Citroen's Berlingo Multispace - A Fresh New Look | Part Two

Research showed that many original Berlingo Multispace owners chose to include additional equipment packs, so Citroen has now elected to fit, as standard, remote control central locking with a dashboard-mounted control button, electric front windows, heated door mirrors and an electric passenger’s door mirror.

In addition the Multispace range gains, for the first time, many of the benefits of digital multiplex wiring. Neat touches such as ‘guide-me-home’ headlamps and progressive dimming of the cabin lights are joined by functions such as a key fob operated ‘location’ facility, speed sensitive stereo volume and automatic locking of the doors when the vehicle is in motion or if it is accidentally unlocked.

Levels of safety have been increased too. Not only has the body structure been reinforced and redesigned for improved impact resistance, but the range now comes with the availability of ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and up to four airbags. The introduction of variable power assisted steering, along with a number of enhancements to the running gear, will help to make low speed manoeuvres easier while improving overall levels of ride comfort and handling.

Offering drivers an attractive balance of power, performance and economy the New Look Berlingo Multispace comes with a choice of four engines – 75hp 1.4i or 110hp 1.6i 16V petrol units or 71hp 1.9D or 90hp 2.0HDi options. Helping to keep running costs down, the petrol and HDi diesel versions have service intervals of 12,500 miles.

And, of course, Citroen is keeping its practical and user friendly twin sliding doors along with its innovative Modutop aircraft style, roof mounted, storage system and the option of its enormous, electrically operated, full length sunroof.
