CitroŽn introduces the MODUTOP on the Berlingo
Presented in the Berlingo at the 2000 Paris Motor Show, the new Modutop roof concept highlights the user-friendly character of the Berlingo and its ability to innovate. Offering a host of new functionalities, the Modutop roof aims to make life on board even more enjoyable for passengers.
The Modutop brings the vehicle's occupants new, easily accessible storage compartments of ingenious design, an excellent loading capacity, a wide range of comfort functions (ventilation, interior lighting, etc.) and a large glazed area.
The Modutop will make its market debut in January 2001, on the Berlingo Multispace and SX.
style, architecture and colour (ivory) of the Modutop are inspired by
the techniques used to design the interior layout of aircraft. The
components offer a perfect fit with the vehicle interior. The roof is
both light (30 kg) and resistant. Its architecture and robust design
optimise safety for all the occupants of the vehicle.
the outside, the Modutop has two built-in, pivoting, removable roof
bars. Positioned lengthwise, the bars can be used to anchor such items
as suitcases and trunks. Positioned crosswise, they can be used to
attach large objects, for example, bikes, skis or surfboards. They are
easy both to handle and to set up. The maximum load on the two
crosswise roof bars is 70 kg.
A roof for all tastes
Modutop, passengers choose their own travelling conditions: each
occupant has a pleasant living area with a window, an air vent and a
stowage compartment allowing him to organise his journey to suit.
Bright and airy
The vast glazed area (five large, rectangular windows) and tinted glass let in the light while keeping the heat out.
