Can used berlingo multispace be converted to 7 seats?
#1
Hi my father-in-law has a 5-seat berlingo multispace 2009 and would like it to be converted into 7-seater. Does anyone know if this is possible and if so where he would be able to get this done? So far internet search has come up with nothing.

Thanks in advance for your help.

While the conversion may be possible I would never put anyone in the rear two seats. If you get rear ended and are sitting next to the tailgate/doors you'd be hamburger.

You could put people you don't like in them.:eek:
Being an HGV driver (high up) I often cringe when looking down (in traffic jams; don't drive that close before anybody asks) seeing children in the back of 'factory' 7-seaters. Look pretty vulnerable to me.Confusedillyme:

Apologies if you know all this already, but many people don't consider the implications fully.

In an accident, there's almost no space between the rear-most passengers and whatever hits the back of your car. The passenger safety is further compromised by the fact that they are sitting in the middle of a space that is designed to be a crumple zone.

This is not specific to the Berlingo, and it applies to lots of other so-called "seven seaters" as well. The public's safety yardstick, Euro NCAP, doesn't test for rear impacts, so the implications are somewhat hidden. Personally I think that if a manufacturer offers a seven seat option, it should be specifically crash-tested by Euro NCAP so that buyers can easily gauge the risks and make meaningful comparisons between car manufacturers and models. Euro NCAP has been hugely successful in modifying manufacturers' attention to safety, but arguably, more so only where it is tested and published.

To answer your specific question though; if you want to do it, then probably the best way would be to use original factory parts, as per the "Family Pack" option, and buy a roof box for the luggage. You wont be able to leave the overhead locker in the boot (this is removed in factory 7 seaters).

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

5th gear did a crash test between an 18 tonne lorry snd a zafira to show risks for rear most passengers. Surfice to say rear seat passengers would have suffered,life altering/ending injuries.
