The Citroen Berlingo First Van is an entry level commercial van, which is proving to be the most successful one that has ever been manufactured. It is a robust vehicle which makes it a great van to work out of. In fact, what is so unique about this van is that it can easily be converted into a freezer, so whether you are a chef, caterer, florist, etc., you have the opportunity to keep goods cold in the back while you make your rounds. The Citroen Berlingo First van is being sold for a very attractive price too. Not to mention, this is the perfect van for someone starting out with a brand new business, or for a corporation wanting to add a fleet of vehicles for whatever reason. The Berlingo brings quality and affordability together, and this is something that most van manufacturers have simply failed in the past. Why should people have to compromise quality just because they can't afford or do not wish to pay a higher MSRP? Renault certainly does not think they should. The Berlingo First Van received the \"first van\" name because it is actually based on their old line-up of vans. Citroen launched their new model but kept the old one. Essentially, this is what allowed them to keep the price so low.

The styling is about what you would expect from a work van; nothing exciting. As mentioned, the headlamps are placed a little higher, which does give the vehicle a bit more of an interesting look.

The French doors in the rear allow you to load and unload cargo with ease, but the lack of windows in the back are expected to cause problems. There are a lot of blind spots on this van. It does offer antilock brakes, power assisted steering and a driver side airbag, but there certainly is not a parking assist or a blind-spot warning system so those blind spots could become a huge problem for drivers.
