In 2018, the third generation of the Citroën Berlingo arrived on the market, a generation that immediately enjoyed great success but also suffered some disappointments, particularly in the health sector. 5 years after its launch, the Berlingo is undergoing a restyling that will give it a new look and, above all, a complete facelift.
A restyled front
After 5 years on the market, it is high time for the Berlingo to undergo a restyling which will mainly affect the front end. In our opinion, this restyling should allow the Berlingo to adopt the brand's new stylistic codes from the Oli concept, particularly at the level of the headlights, which would return to a single part composed of two horizontal LED bars framing a row of headlights, this time also equipped with LEDs. These new headlights would frame a thin black grille on which the new Citroën logo would be placed more vertically in the centre.
Under this grille, we have placed an air intake, already present on the current version and necessary for cooling the thermal engines offered outside Europe, these engines could switch to micro-hybrid versions with the new puretech engine developing 136 hp and on this occasion could return to Europe.
However, other rumours suggest that a Berlingo, still only available with a thermal engine, will be equipped with the new eMotors engine developed by Stellantis and Nidec. This new 156 bhp engine will be linked to a 54 kWh battery with revised chemistry, which should improve autonomy, even if it will remain largely insufficient for motorway driving.
In conclusion, this restyled Berlingo will therefore revise its entire front end to make it adopt the brand's new stylistic codes, abandoning the double-decker headlights in favour of a more serious style, also more rewarding and which could also be adopted on the Berlingo Van, ending the two sides distinguishing the VU version from the VP version.
