Good: Practical and versatile family car based on Citroen C4. 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 (but a good van).
Good: Cheap to run. Group 1 insurance. 60mpg. handles well. Low list prices. Good Euro NCAP score. 2012 model emits just 99g/km CO2.
Bad: Reports of water leaks. Clutch and waterpump failures common on 2005 - 2009 C1s, 107s and Aygos. (Bigger, stronger clutch fitted in production from 2009.)
Good: Neat looking small hatchback, uses some of the same engines as MINI, 1.6 HDi engine emits 110g/km of CO2, 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: Fussy styling. No automatic gearbox at first and later 'automatic' only an automated manual. Avoid £200 'Black' pack with 17-inch alloy wheels which spoil ride and handling. 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: Impressive ride quality, improved interior finish, very practical and family friendly.
Bad: New control interface system isn't the easiest to use.
Good: Much improved over predecessor, impressive handling, feels better finished inside, large boot.
Bad: Rather clunky manual gear change.
Good: Extremely good-looking family saloon. Neat interior, Very comfortable. Hydractive suspension isolates driver and passengers from the road. Estate is practical. Efficient HDi engines.
Bad: Very little steering 'feel', especially on Hydractive suspension. No hatchback - only a saloon or estate.
Good: Excellent handling, superb 2.2 twin turbo diesel, respectable off-road ability, Japanese built and well equipped.
Bad: The rearmost two seats are strictly for small children only.
Good: Citroen's all-electric small car, basically a rebadged version of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, zero tailpipe emissions, no VED and no fuel costs.
Bad: Range is 80 miles and it will be expensive at around £24,000 even after the Government incentive.
Good: Height-adjustable pneumatic suspension and sliding doors on both sides. Combi version can carry up to nine people. Plenty of safety and comfort features. Drives surprisingly well.
Bad: A bit big to park on the street outside a terraced house.
Good: Refined and high quality interior. Great 1.6 THP 150 petrol engine with six-speed gearbox gives 40-45mpg. 99g/km 1.6 diesel. Good value for money. Handles really well. Strong rival to MINI.
Bad: Makes you wonder why all Citroens can't be this good.
Good: Soft top version of the DS3 with an electric sliding fabric roof which can be operated at up to 75mph.
Bad: Not on sale until 2013.
Good: Neat looks. Optional leather makes interior 'classy'. Improved quality compared to previous Citroen models. Decent 2.0 HDi diesel. Lots of scope for personalisation.
Bad: Not as good as the smaller DS3. Kickback through the steering on bumpy roads. Rear windows do not wind down. Points of rear doors can stab you in the face. 18" and 19" wheels best avoided.
Good: More stylish alternative to the C5. Pleasing interior.
Bad: No Hydractive suspension on the DS model that really should have had it. Very poor ride quality, especially on 19" wheels.
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 a bit choppy.
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.
