Citroën Berlingo Van has added to its impressive haul of awards, winning the ‘Compact High Cube Van of the Year’ title at the Great British Fleet Awards 2020.  “Few competitors can compete with the vast array of safety and driver assistance systems on offer in Berlingo Van”, noted the judges of this year’s awards. This is the second time that Berlingo Van has been recognised at the Great British Fleet awards, following two wins at last year’s inaugural ceremony.



Citroën Berlingo Van has clinched the ‘Compact High Cube Van of the Year’ title in the Great British Fleet Awards 2020, with practicality, a strong focus on safety and low running costs all cited as key reasons for the very deserving win.

Last year, Berlingo Van had only been on sale for a matter of days in January 2019 when it was presented with two awards at the inaugural Great British Fleet awards – including overall ‘Van of the Year’.

On average, over 1,100 Berlingo Vans found UK buyers each month in its first year on sale, with more than 13,500 registered in 2019.

In this year’s awards, the judges noted that Berlingo Van: “…continues to impress, offering a broad range of bodies and carrying capacities in this critical sector of the LCV market. Few competitors can compete with the vast array of safety and driver assistance systems on offer in Berlingo Van.”

Van Fleet World Editor, Dan Gilkes, said: “This is a hotly contested sector of the van market, but for the second year running, Berlingo Van, with Partner and Combo, take the Great British Fleet Award from Van Fleet World, thanks to a winning combination of load carrying ability, driver safety and operating costs.”

The latest award adds to the impressive tally of prizes already won by Berlingo Van. The Great British Fleet Award is the second trophy that Berlingo Van has won in January 2020 alone.

Berlingo Van is available in four trim levels: ‘X’, ‘Worker’, ‘Enterprise’ and ‘Driver’. In its first year on sale, ‘Enterprise’ versions have proved most popular, with standard specification that includes: air conditioning, rear parking sensors, cruise control with variable speed limiter, an alarm, one touch electric windows, heated and electrically folding door mirrors, tyre pressure monitor, EXTENSO® modular folding passenger seat with pivoting writing table and load-through bulkhead, colour touchscreen with Apple Car Play™, Android Auto and front fog lights.

This latest accolade is the 5th award presented to Citroën UK so far in 2020. With Berlingo Van being honoured (twice), alongside C3 Aircross Compact SUV, Grand C4 SpaceTourer and Berlingo MPV in the first few weeks of the new year.
