The new Citroen Berlingo Multispace is longer (+24cm) and wider (+8cm) than its forerunner, which translates into a more roomy dashboard. An increase to the wheelbase further contributes to the visual impression of generous volumes and projects a strong road presence.

A bold and distinctive new-style corporate face embodies the Company's iconic chevrons into the sculpted bonnet, immediately identifying the car's Citroen identity. The deep wraparound bumper asserts the adventurous qualities of the vehicle. From bonnet to boot, a clear layout focus has been placed on the angles of the new Citroen Berlingo Multispace. The assertive headlamps and smooth curves of the bonnet lead to taut side lines, and sculpted wheel arches giving the vehicle a more aerodynamic profile.

The Multispace's wide, steeply raked windscreen gives drivers optimum visibility with a big glazed space of 4. 6m², echoing the roomy dimensions of the dashboard. The car's back parameter is defined by striking tail lights and a wraparound back bumper with cubic lines which protects the elegant curving tailgate.

The new Citroen Berlingo Multispace in XTR trim, transforms the vehicle into full 'go anywhere' mode with black and silver coloured body sections, side rubbing strips and tinted back windows giving a rugged and active look. Heightened front and back suspension (+10mm), chunky 16 tyres and a styled motor cover plate equip the XTR for the active individual.
On its release in 1997 Renault Kangoo's affable, expressive style revolutionised the leisure utility car sector. Spacious and versatile Renault Kangoo has been a success, selling over 2200000, units since it was launched.

New Renault Kangoo matches family expectations more closely. It draws on Renault Kangoo fundamentals, turning them into an optimised blend of class, convenience, and practicality. At 4213mm, in length, New Renault Kangoo's resolutely contemporary, affable, cheery lines exert a strong appeal. Its short, chunky front end frees up room for the bright, airy passenger cab, which is further improved by its steeply-raked Mpv-style windscreen. Some versions have pop-open windows, and other others electric ones. All have big doors which open onto a comprehensively reworked dashboard.

For enhanced ride pleasure, a number of features have been updated. With its impressive roominess, New Renault Kangoo has put the onus on room and the shared ride experience. It is 180mm longer than its predecessor and that extra length has been lavished on the cab, where more volume gives the five occupants more space and more comfort! Resolutely contemporary and featuring a more ergonomic layout, the dash resembles an Mpv's, while the cab has been refitted and finished with class materials. New Renault Kangoo boasts standards of thermal and acoustic convenience worthy of an MPV. Some versions option automatic conditioning. Air is evenly distributed at both front and back due to the layout of the circuit, which has outlets at every passenger's feet. To ensure acoustic convenience, developers have used the same techniques as for the rest of the range.
