Citroën Berlingo Wins Second Consecutive ‘MPV of the Year’ Prize in What Car? Awards 2020
Citroën Berlingo has added yet another title to its list of achievements, winning ‘MPV of the Year’ – for the second year in a row – at the What Car? Awards 2020. Praised as the ideal family car, Berlingo was recognised for its class-leading interior space, efficiency and practicality.
Citroën has scooped the prestigious ‘MPV of the Year’ title – for the second consecutive year – at the What Car? Awards 2020. The five-seat Berlingo PureTech 110 Feel medium (M) version particularly impressed the judging panel with its interior space, practicality and fuel efficiency. Karl Howkins, Citroën UK’s Managing Director, accepted the trophy on behalf of the brand during the glittering ceremony earlier this evening at Grosvenor House hotel, London.
Citroën Berlingo has already won multiple UK honours since its launch late in 2018, including Auto Express ‘MPV of the Year’ 2019 and ‘Best Medium Family Car’ in the Parkers New Car Awards 2020.
Steve Huntingford, Editor at What Car?, commented: “Berlingo was designed with family life as the overriding priority, and its lofty ceiling means loading children into car seats will be no bother, while sliding rear doors make light work of tight car parks. Our engine recommendation, the 109bhp turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol, is strong enough to ferry around an MPV full of people and luggage. What’s more, the Berlingo has a soft and relaxed ride that will please passengers. To top it all off, the Berlingo offers a more appealing interior than its rivals, while also costing less.”
Citroën Berlingo boasts outstanding interior modularity with a class-leading boot volume (up to the parcel shelf) of between 775-litres on medium (M) versions and 1,050-litres on XL versions, coupled with an exceptionally low load sill and a uniform shape to the load area.
Karl Howkins, Managing Director at Citroën UK, said: “It’s an honour to receive this award for Berlingo – especially as it is the second year in a row. We take pride in designing all of our cars with our Citroën customers in mind, and Berlingo is a perfect example of a car created for family life. We are delighted to have been recognised again at the prestigious What Car? Awards.”
