Base models come with two rows of seating, while the optional, longer version offers three rows and capacity of up to seven passengers.

In both cases, the overall cabin layout is practically the same. The dashboard looks pretty attractive and it is the same as in two other siblings from the PSA Group. You can notice lots of hi-quality materials and soft-touch surfaces, while the center stack is highlighted by a large, tablet-like touchscreen. As we already mentioned, three models feature same dashboard design and the only 2019 Citroen Berlingo Multispace’s distinctive part is Citroen’s familiar steering wheel design, which is flat-bottomed and looks pretty sporty.

These vehicles are practical, so it’s no wonder that the 2019 Citroen Berlingo Multispace offers lots of storage compartments. According to the manufacturer, there are 28 of them in total, which sound amazing.
