The new Citroen Berlingo First HDi 75 is like a cheap hotel. Nothing flash, but a perfectly respectable choice. As such, this light commercial vehicle is only available with one engine - specifically a 1.6-litre diesel. This 75hp machine produces 170Nm of torque, averages a relatively pleasing 52.3mpg, and sits in emission class Euro 4. This means that twelve months road tax costs £130, which is enough to reserve a superior hotel room and breakfast.

The Citroen Berlingo First HDi 75 is easy to manoeuvre as it only measures 4,137mm by 1,724mm. Despite its modest dimensions, this load-lugger's storage capacity is a perfectly respectable 2.7m3 and its payload is 600kg. The maximum load length is 1,700mm and the width 1,600mm. Too small for hotel bed suppliers, but it can carry plenty of flat-pack bedside cabinets. Nothing too tall though, the maximum interior height is 1,246mm.

The Citroen Berlingo First is only available with one standard specification, much like the rooms at motorway service stations. Standard equipment includes one air-bag, pre-tensioner seatbelts, central locking, and a radio CD player. Sadly though, no tea or coffee making facilities. Options include anti-lock brakes for £320 and air conditioning for a further £600. The van itself costs £11,535 plus VAT – which could alternatively get you a weekend at The Ritz.
