In 1997 the French car manufacturers Peugeot and Citroen together with a new model van on the market. Peugeot has its wagon called the Peugeot Partner. Citroen chooses the name Citroën Berlingo. The carriages have a characteristic shape, with a relatively high roof. The model differs from the vans as they formerly were often designed: a standard model car with a large cargo cabin behind. The French twins received a high roof from the windscreen that extends all the way to the back. A design that is later adopted by many other brands.
Besides performing as a company of the Citroën Berlingo it also brings a variant as passenger car market. This will bring the addition Multispace. And that name literally gives to why the car is interesting: you get a lot of space. The model is not directly liked by everyone, but anyone who is practically minded certainly see the benefits of the large car.
In 2003, the Citroën Berlingo is getting a facelift. In 2008 it is again tinkered with the Berlingo. The car gets a new look and is placed by Citroën strongly higher in the market: more luxury and comfort. The reason is that Citroën is also introducing the Citroën Nemo.

The opposite is true. The Berlingo is a car you can arrange to buy and dress. There are several kits available. There is the possibility of creating seven seats with two proper seats in the third row. All seats fold flat to create cargo space. It also can be removed.
