Revamped Berlingo Multispace goes on sale in July

Citroën has revealed an updated version of its van-derived MPV, the Berlingo Multispace, at the Geneva motor show.

Changes are subtle but the most immediately obvious are styling tweaks to the front, including a new bumper, daytime running lights and grille. There are also two new colours to choose from.

Citroën's range of cleaner diesel BlueHDi engines appears in the Berlingo line-up for the first time. The entry-level engine produces 74bhp, a claimed economy figure of 65.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 113g/km, figures matched by the more powerful 99bhp version.

The most powerful – 118bhp – engine gets a six-speed manual gearbox (all other models come with a five-speed manual transmission). It emits 115g/km of CO2 and has a claimed economy figure of 64.2mpg.

For the first time, autonomous emergency braking, which slows the car from around 20mph when it identifies the risk of an accident, is fitted as standard, while front parking sensors and a reversing camera are now on the options list.

A 7.0in touchscreen is now fitted as standard on Multispace versions. It integrates the Bluetooth handsfree system, audio and some vehicle specific settings into one interface. From November onwards, the system will be improved still further when a facility to mirror the driver's smartphone functionality and voice control systems are added.

The updated Berlingo Multispace goes on sale in July 2015.

It's surprising Citroen aren't trumpeting improved refinement.
