It's just the new Dispatch replacement though so similar size to that, so if you had wanted something larger than a Berlingo you would have bought a Dispatch already. I guess prices of this one will be similar to existing Dispatch.

I think it's based on the replacement for the Dispatch. So it's probably quite a bit bigger than the Berlingo. It comes in two lengths, and the shorter one is 4.6m long. The Berlingo is 4.2m for the standard length, and 4.6m with the longer back. So it's not massive in relation to the Berlingo.
The previous Dispatch people-carrier was very van-like, with nothing like the sophistication of the Berlingo. I don't know whether this has changed with this new model - the fact that they're giving it a new name says they probably are aiming it at families rather than airport-run taxis, so it could well be a big improvement.
I think vans are just getting better looking. VW started it with the T4. Could be a builder's van but add alloy wheels, metallic paint, windows, seats & aircon & it's an upmarket people carrier. They tried that with the older Transit & it looked like a builder's van in drag so with current Transit they just made it better looking & now Cit has gone same way.
Too big for what I need, would the height restrict it in car parks? I like the current Berlingo, it's is a ideal combination of practicality and space.

It's a big improvement on the current Dispatch Combi...
Much prettier, both inside and out - I always thought the front looked a bit weird on them before.
But it's also big - too big for me, along with the price. Now the excitement's worn off, I'm back to loving my Blingo. At least until the 2018 version comes out anyway.

I hope it doesn't get any bigger than the current version !! I thought the MK2 was about spot on size wise ........
