Citroen has announced the new Berlingo van, which is due to go on sale before the end of the year.

Two sizes, M and XL, measuring 4.40m and 4.75m long respectively, are available with a payload up to one tonne. There is also a Crew van that seats five.
The new Berlingo also features sliding doors on both sides of the vehicle to aid practicality.
Two dedicated versions - Worker and Driver - are available to suit different customer needs. The versions vary in terms of specification, with differing ground clearance, engine protection and equipment levels.
20 driver assistance systems include an Overload Indicator and a Surround Rear Vision system, colour head-up display, Automatic Electronic Parking Brake, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop Function and Active Safety Brake are available, along with four connectivity technologies, including Citroën Connect Nav and Wireless Smartphone Charging.
The engine line-up includes a BlueHDi 1.5-litre and 1.6-litre diesels and a PureTech 1.2-litre petrol. There is also an eight-speed automatic gearbox option.
