Citroen Reviews

New Cars
Good: Comfortable ride and reasonably nimble handling. Good load space in both wheelbase versions. Opening roof flap adds to versatility.
Bad: Lower power engine struggles on the motorway. Optional third seat is cramped for centre passenger.
Good: Practical and versatile family. Handles and rides better than some family hatchbacks. Huge load capacity. Massively improved safety over previous Berlingo Multispace.
Bad: Not for car snobs. Essentially a van.
Good: Cheap to run with zero tax on all models. Improved interior quality and refinement over previous C1. Available with retractable fabric roof. Decent at motorway speeds.
Bad: Similar Toyota Aygo has sharper looks.
Good: Neat looking small hatchback. Uses some of the same engines as MINI. 1.6 HDi is the best in the range. Excellent ride quality.
Bad: Lacklustre handling. Interior looks good on the surface but lacks quality in depth.
Good: Decent practical family car. Very roomy in the back. Good load capacity. Drives and rides well. Best with 1.6 HDi engine.
Bad: Automatic only an automated manual. Avoid repeated short runs from cold with diesel versions.
Good: Huge improvement in quality on previous C4. Comfortable and quiet on the move. Large and useful boot. Good HDi diesel engines. Neat styling.
Bad: Array of warning chimes can be annoying. Relatively crude suspension not in the same class as the Focus or Golf. EGS 'automatic' takes getting used to.
Good: Unique interior design has a boutique feel. Comfortable and refined on the move. Spacious inside with a good quality finish. Available with impressive 1.2 PureTech engine. Space saver spare available for £75.
Bad: Unusual styling sure to divide opinion. ETG6 gearbox can be jerky. Rear windows only pop-out and don't wind down.
Good: Impressive ride quality. Improved interior finish. Very practical and family friendly.
Bad: New control interface system isn't the easiest to use. Useless glovebox.
Good: Much improved over predecessor. Impressive handling. Feels better finished inside. Large boot.
Bad: Rather clunky manual gear change.
Good: Neat interior, Very comfortable. Hydractive suspension isolates driver and passengers from the road. Efficient HDi engines.
Bad: Very little steering 'feel' especially on Hydractive suspension. No hatchback only a saloon or estate.
Good: Citroen's all-electric small car. Zero tailpipe emissions. No VED and no fuel costs. Free to drive into central London congestion zone.
Bad: Range is 80 miles. Expensive. Tight inside.
Good: Height-adjustable pneumatic suspension and sliding doors on both sides. Good variety of wheelbases and roofs. Air con and Bluetooth on Enterprise. Refined 2.0-litre diesel.
Bad: 1.6 HDi is strained at higher speeds. No ESP as standard on any model seems a major oversight.
Good: High quality interior. Great 1.6 THP 165 petrol engine with six-speed gearbox. Wide engine range. Drives, rides and handles well.
Bad: Makes you wonder why all Citroens can't be this good. By 2014, older direct injected 1.6 THP 150 was starting to suffer problems.
Good: As enjoyable and as good to drive as the DS3 hatchback. Roof can be folded and unfolded at speeds up to 70mph.
Bad: Small and inaccessible boot. Not quite a true cabriolet. Poor rear visibility with roof down.
Good: Fashionable looks. Optional leather makes interior 'classy'. Improved quality compared to previous Citroen models. New lights and improved engine range for 2015. Lots of scope for personalisation.
Bad: Not as good as the smaller DS3. Kickback through steering of diesel on bumpy roads. Rear windows do not wind down.
Good: More stylish alternative to the C5. Impressive interior. Much better from 2015.
Bad: No Hydractive suspension on the DS model that really should have had it. Very poor ride quality especially on 19-inch wheels, improved from 2015.
Good: Surprisingly spacious small van. Clever features include fold flat passenger seat. Economical and cheap to run. Available with twin sliding doors.
Bad: Noisy on the motorway. Ride is somewhat unrefined.
Good: Cheap to buy and run. Versatile and decently equipped. Neatly styled. Lots of headroom in the back.
Bad: Taller drivers will find the front seats cramped. Lacks refinement. Based on a van. 1.4-litre petrol is sluggish.
Good: One of the largest vans in its class. Wide choice of wheelbases and heights. Punchy engines. Suited to heavy work and towing. Comfortable ride and good handling.
Bad: Drab plastics. Passenger bench seat is not as comfortable as it should be for long distances. Noisy at speed.
