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: 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: Comfortable seats and ride quality. Much improved interior quality. Standard built-in dash cam on Flair models.
Bad: Entry-level model misses out on some key equipment. Rear legroom tight with taller passengers up front. Manual gear change feels sloppy.
Good: Low starting price from £14,000. Very spacious with a flexible cabin. Soft ride quality means it's mostly comfy. Interesting looks.
Bad: Dull driving experience. No four-wheel drive version. Many of the practicality and personality flourishes are optional. Can quickly become expensive.
Good: Decent practical upright car. Roomy in the back. Good load capacity. Drives and rides well. Excellent ingress and egress. Panoramic front screen with no blindspots. New 1.2 Puretech petrol engine.
Bad: Automatic originally only an automated manual. Avoid repeated short runs from cold with diesel versions. Obviously not sporty.
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.
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. Very practical and family friendly. Good engine selection.
Bad: Touchscreen interface isn't the easiest to use. Useless glovebox.
Good: 5 individual seats. Takes 3 babyseats across back. Much improved over predecessor. Impressive handling. Better finished inside. Large boot. Remarkable 1.2 130PS engine and 6-speed torque converter auto.
Bad: Clunky manual gear change.
Good: Latest C5 ditches saloon body in favour of SUV styling. Promises to have very comfortable ride quality.
Bad: Not on sale until 2018.
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: Excellent official fuel economy figures, useful hi-tech features, smooth and refined drive.
Bad: Automatic gearbox restricted to two engine variants, no high-roof option.
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. Improved quality compared to previous Citroen models. Improved engines from 2015. Lots of scope for personalisation.
Bad: Hard ride. Not very comfortable, with limited leg room in the rear. Rear windows do not wind down.
Good: More stylish alternative to the C5. Impressive interior. Much better from 2015.
Bad: Actually based on the C4, not the C5. 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: 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.
Good: Citroen badged version of Peugeot Traveller 8/9 seater, available in three wheelbases and also available with four wheel drive.
Bad: UK not initially getting 4WD versions.
