The first Berlingo ran from '96 until '08 with one major facelift halfway through in '02. Thats 12yrs. Berlingo is van based & commercial body shells usually have much longer run than car body shell so perhaps expect new bodyshell in '20. So maybe or maybe not a major facelift is due this yr? Of interest though might be new Ford Tourneo Connect, same diesel engine as Berlingo & same concept but brand new.
The Mark3 was last 'updated' February/March 2012. The XTR was given Daytime running lights, the engine was updated from 110 BHP to 115BHP and possibly other minor 'enhancements'

The Mark 1 and 2 was based on the van floor plan the Mark 3 was based on another floor plan, but I cannot recall which one now.

2012 Iron Grey XTR 110 with lots of bits and bobs.
if citroen were to drop some of their styling from the c4 onto the berlingo it would stand out from the rest, some more colour ranges as well would help. When i went to look at a partner, salesman says all he had was white and they weren't producing any other colours for a while

According to the One True Source of Knowledge(wikipedia), the Mk. I / II are based on the Citroen ZX/Peugeot 306 floorplan and mechanicals, and the Mk . III(Officially 'Berlingo II') uses the 'PSA Platform 2' (same as C4)

There's the smaller Nemo (Or Pug Bipper...) version of the Berlingo II, too, but as it's based on the Fiat Grande Punto, it doesn't really count. (If so, we'd have to allow Fiat Fiorino owners here... )
A couple of years on and still no news of a substantial upgrade to my knowledge. I've been having thoughts of a new C4 Picasso, not the same loadspace as a Berlingo but much classier (and expensive).

I also wish Citroen had a decent petrol engine in the upper range, many other manufacturers do.
MkIII VTR 1.6hdi Modutop, Climate Pack, 16" Alloys
A all-new replacement is coming in 2017-2018 according to various sources...

So the current model is now approaching run-out.
The modern pure tech petrol engine is available in current French market Berlingo but not UK spec models. It appears the new Berlingo as linked to will be even bigger than current model which for Multispace buyers might make it too big for many private motorists. I found the size of the pre '08 Berl just perfect. Current model is bit on the big side but bigger than that & I may well look elsewhere for my next car or more likely, as mine will be 8yrs/80k miles old next yr I may well look for a replacement current model & hope for good prices. Register new car before April '17 & you still have £30 pa road tax. After that & the new regime comes in with min £140pa tax
I think some of the current models are £20 a year road tax now. So yes, get on board before it's too late and save a grand or so over a typical Berlingo-lifespan.

I'm a tightwad, so I reckon my 2014 one will last until the one after the next comes out, which should be around 2028!

Bigger is better for me, just as long as it will fit in a standard car park space and under most barriers. They can probably increase space by squeezing more into the same size box though. If I was in charge I'd stick the fuel tank under the front seats, get rid of the spare wheel and drop the floor right down, as there's a heck of a lot of wasted space under the current model's floor. You could then walk around in the back - it would be huge. Even if you had an optional spare bolted to the side inside it would still be much bigger. I suppose it depends on how much they can modify the EMP2 platform though. It was primarily designed for cars, but you'd hope someone could load up the CAD files, do a "Save As..." and twiddle it about specifically for the Berlingo, with a flat back floor.

The big dread of a new model is that they may do too good a job of making it look nice. If they can make something nice enough for the car-snobs to buy then they might decide it's worth £20k+.
I think this is the new model for next year, but its no berlingo, its in co-op with toyota.
