Spacious, practical and brimming with family-friendly features, the Citroen Berlingo Multispace is a five-seat people carrier for buyers on a budget. It sits between the cheaper Xsara Picasso and stylish C4 Picasso in the Citroen range but, unlike its predecessor, is no longer based on a van.

The Berlingo Multispace scored a reasonable four stars out of five for occupant protection in official European crash tests. Although twin front airbags are standard, customers have to pay extra for side and curtain airbags (although side airbags are standard on the top XTR model). Electronic stability control is offered as an option on VTR and XTR models but isn't available on VT cars.

In 2015 the facelift brought more safety kit, including automatic low-speed braking, front parking sensors and reversing camera.

Reliability

The Multispace should be mechanically robust, although there are more electronic features available in this version of the Berlingo. Most of the features are also fitted to other Citroën models and should prove generally reliable, but they may be seen as more items that could go wrong.
