The Citroen Berlingo is getting an update for 2021, including new interior and exterior features, additional technology on higher-spec models and a simplified trim structure. The new Berlingo will be priced from £22,135 for the entry-level Feel when it goes on sale in October this year.

The update will also introduce a new e-Toggle automatic gearbox controller. Already featured on automatic versions of the new C4, the e-Toggle will replace the rotary dial selector on PureTech 130 models with the eight-speed automatic gearbox. The e-Toggle selector will also feature on the pure electric e-Berlingo when it arrives later this year.

The Rip Curl trim, which is priced from £24,770, has now become a core model within the Berlingo lineup, replacing the Flair trim. It’s only available in the most popular ‘Medium’ body length and comes with a host of exterior and interior upgrades that include a new ‘Ocre' Colour Pack, which adds 16-inch black alloy wheels and black door mirrors. Inside, the cabin is trimmed in grey and yellow upholstery with contrasting white stitching. 

The Rip Curl model comes fitted with a range of new equipment, including automatic dual-zone climate control, front parking sensors and a colour 180° reverse parking camera. Additional driver assistance and safety aids include lane keep assist, active safety brake, speed limit recognition and traffic sign recognition.

The Feel and Flair XTR trims are the other two on offer, with the latter priced from £26,290. Both are available in M and XL lengths with a choice of manual and automatic gearboxes for petrol and diesel options.

The engine range starts with a 108bhp 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol unit, which is linked to a six speed manual gearbox. A more powerful 128bhp version of the same engine can be had with an eight-speed automatic, costing £24,445 in entry-level Feel trim.
