CITROËN UK INTRODUCES RANGE TOPPING FLAIR XTR TRIM LEVEL ON NEW BERLINGO
Citroën ÚK is adding a new trim level to top its New Berlingo passenger car range. Due to the demand for the Flair trim level and the uptake of certain options, such as the innovative Modutop Roof®, the French brand has seen a clear opportunity to offer a new range-topping model that fully reflects the virtues of this multi-award winning MPV. New Berlingo Flair XTR will be available as 5-seat M size and 7-seat XL versions. Production will start in July 2019 and prices start from £23,630 and £25,330 respectively.
New Citroën Berlingo is a modern and robust leisure activity vehicle, which continues to be a favourite amongst families with active and varied lifestyles. In January 2019, this practical and fun latest-generation MPV was awarded the prestigious 'Best MPV' accolade at the highly coveted What Car? Car of the Year Awards.
Since the launch last year, over 60% of customer orders have been for the range topping Flair level trim and uptake of certain options, such as the innovative Modutop Roof®, have been so strong that Citroën ÚK has spotted a clear opportunity to offer customers a new high-end trim level, Flair XTR, that amplifies the virtues of this class-leading MPV.
