Driving

We tried the 2.2 HDi which is powerful and torquey enough to drive like quite a good car. It's obviously a bit limited in the bends but not as badly as its predecessor and you can easily forget you're driving an MPV.

There are airbags everywhere, seven three-point belts and enough safety features to earn the C8 a four star NCAP rating. But, as in the Synergie, headroom in the middle and rearmost rows is far from lofty. So, like the Synergie, there may be a high top base-spec taxi version along in a year or so.

Think of the C8 and think long holiday journeys to the South of France, Spain or Italy in comfort. That's what it's all about. Even when you're stuck in the school run traffic jam.
