A benchmark in the van market, Berlingo Van adopts Citroën's new signature. Driving comfort has been optimised, while the zero-emission range of ë-Berlingo Van has been increased by 20% to 330 km (WLTP Mixt Cycle, currently being certified)

Ever since the 2CV van, Citroën has been a major player in this major competitive market. The three successive generations of Berlingo Van have kept evolving to meet the needs of professionals. The New Berlingo Van has reached a new milestone.


In terms of exterior styling, the new Berlingo Van features the brand's latest design, with a more upright front end that has been completely redeveloped – from the radiator grille to the bumper and headlamps. The result is that the Berlingo Van's look has more character, underlining its dynamism and robustness. Laterally, the styling changes are mainly focused on the wheels, which have been given a new look. A new body colour is available: Kiama blue.

The passenger compartment has been redesigned, and now features a new more ergonomic dashboard. The quality of the finish has also been improved. The new dashboard integrates a new 10-inch high-definition touchscreen (see below). The steering wheel is also new, and features buttons for cruise control and the audio system. On the electric version, paddles have been added behind the steering wheel to manage energy recovery depending on the current charge level.


Whether it's a passenger car or a commercial vehicle, comfort is a Citroën priority. The new Berlingo Van is compatible with Citroën’s new Advanced Comfort ® seats, which will be appreciated by all professionals who spend hours in their vehicle every day. Exclusive to Citroën, the Advanced Comfort ® seats in the new Berlingo Van are based on an elaborate architecture, include special lateral supports and are enveloped in high-quality foam and fabric.


User comfort is key to optimum professional performance. So the new Berlingo Van is shifting up a gear, offering users the latest technologies to make everyday life easier. Regarding infotainment, everything has changed:

  • Entry-level vehicles get My Citroën Play, complete with smartphone station, an integrated smartphone docking station. Accessible and ingenious, this solution is totally in keeping with the times. Drivers can connect their smartphone to their car and listen to music or make calls via the car's audio system, as well as using their smartphone’s navigation app.. To enhance driver safety, the system can be controlled from the steering wheel or via smartphone’s voice recognition. It's a fully-fledged extension of the smartphone for drivers.
  • The new Berlingo Van can fit two levels of 10" screens in the centre of its new dashboard. A touch screen for controlling Citroën's new multimedia systems:
    • The new My Citroën Play infotainment system, combined with a standard 10" screen, can be used to listen to the radio and includes a wireless smartphone replication function, compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Ergonomically designed, it also displays the vehicle’s reversing camera.
    • The new My Citroën Drive Plus system, combined with a high-definition 10" screen.... Available with connected 3D navigation, it is extremely easy to use. Drawing inspiration from smartphone widgets, you can use it to manage various media functions. The high-definition screen can also be used to display the feed from the reversing camera.  
  • A handy wireless smartphone charger is located on the centre console, available as part of the Techno pack, which also includes keyless entry and start and automatic climate control. Two USB sockets are available.


Increasing comfort also means reducing the driver's workload. To this end, the new Berlingo has been fitted with a range of new driving aids.

  • An improved version: Dynamic Surround Vision displayed directly on the central rear-view mirror: eyes in the back of your head. Because it's often difficult to get a precise idea of your surroundings when driving a panel van, the new Berlingo Van has been fitted with two cameras: one above the rear doors, and a new one under the exterior rear-view mirror on the passenger side. Projected directly onto the wide digital central rear-view mirror, the image gives you a constant view of what's happening behind you – just like in a normal car – despite the sheet metal obstructing your view. When parking, the projected image compensates for any blind spots you might have.
  • Enhanced parking aids. New Berlingo Van is now equipped with 12 obstacle sensors distributed between the front and rear of the vehicle.
  • Technology that makes life easier: New on Berlingo van, the Highway Driver Assist combines adaptive cruise control with stop and go, and lane centring assistance. It complements a range of technologies for greater comfort and safety, including driver tiredness warning, road sign reading, lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, speed limiter…
