New Berlingo Van recognized as 'Best for 2019'
Added: 27 September 2018
The all-new Citroen Berlingo Van has been awarded the much-coveted International Van of the Year prize 2019 at the IAA Commercial Vehicles show in Hannover.
The third generation of Citroen’s best-selling commercial vehicle picked up the award ahead of its UK release this autumn. It was chosen above its rivals by a 25-strong panel of industry journalists and independent magazine editors who specialise in the Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) sector.
The Berlingo Van was praised by the panel for its availability in two sizes (‘XL’ and ‘M’, with a payload of up to 1000kg) and extensive comfort and safety features – with no fewer than 20 driving aids and four connectivity technologies, including Overload Indicator, Surround Rear Vision, Adaptive Cruise Control, Electric Parking Brake, Citroen Connect Nav and Wireless Smartphone Charging.
In keeping with the style of the Citroen range, the new Berlingo Van offers greater visibility with a higher driving position and a shortened front.
Linda Jackson, Citroen Global CEO, commented: “The Citroen brand is proud to see New Berlingo Van receive the prestigious title of ‘International Van of the Year 2019’ once again.
“This award bears witness to the leap taken by this third generation of Berlingo Van in terms of features and underlines the relevance of Citroen’s offer in the delivery can sector. This success highlights the brand’s historic commitment to the Light Commercial Vehicle sector and continues a long success story; from the 2CV delivery can and Type H, to the Dispatch and New Berlingo Van today.
“A modern commercial vehicle perfect for every business, New Berlingo Van is true to the brand’s signature “Inspired by Pro”.
Six body colours are on offer: Polar White, Passion Red, Black, Cumulous Grey, Platinum Grey and Deep Blue.
