welcome, I know wot you mean, I was a bit nervous about buying a french car-my Berlingo Multispace- until I was reassured by others and test-drive- hope you enjoy the van Confusedanta:

Welcome to the site fremen, lots of people seem dubious, don't think this model has had any part to play in building that feeling though.Rolleyes

Agreed, its a shame that some people have a poor perception of french cars -but as like Skoda, Citroen is a very sensible buy, and I am very happy with mine ( so far ) and I think the cool Berlingo will tempt more people to try/buy oneConfusedanta:

The only Berlingos I have owned are MK2, and they were for pure practicality, but as taxi points out, the new MK3 looks stunning OTR.

The look of the Mk3 was what prompted me to buy one.

The older models always looked,to me anyway,like the wheels were too small for the car,they have a 'might fall over' look.
The Berlingo Multispace has always been an incredible car as far as storage and cubby holes goes (unfortunately the Mk3 is lacking in that department) even Jeremy Clarkson was overwhelmed by the old models capability to swallow everything you throw in it!

But,when I saw the new Mk3 model,with it's squat,chunky look,then I knew I'd have to have one.
Ok,it's not everyone's cup of tea,my dream car would be a Bentley Continental GT,but I'm a realist,with a realist's salary so the Bentley just ain't gonna happen.

Even now,after buying my XTR new 18 months ago,when it's standing there all washed and waxed,I still love it!

Frequently I get comments from passengers praising the looks and practicality of my blingo, and there have been quite a lot of people surprised by the comfortable ride and think it costs more than it does. As mentioned by others, I wish there were more cubby holes etc, but I just have to accept the few misgivings.
