When it comes to style and comfort, few can compete with the Citroen offering. Their range also offers value for money with cars that lots of equipment, practicality and space though their DS models are now available under the DS brand which is a separate entity.
From the impressive city car, the C1 which is fun and agile in towns, to the all-electric C-Zero, a quiet micro car that handles well and is incredibly cheap to run thanks to a powerful electric motor.
Citroen also sells some of the UK’s most popular models, such as the C3 which is a great small car with high comfort levels. They are frugal cars; the Airdream diesel engine should return 83mpg on the combined cycle, for instance, and the excellent petrol units should deliver 65mpg.
However, Citroen really does save its best offering for those who want to carry passengers in comfort and style. Leading the pack of MPVs is the excellent C3 Picasso, which is excellent for small families. It has more space than its C3 sibling, thanks to a higher roofline and some practical touches on board.
The C4 is one of the best small family hatchbacks available and the C4 Picasso is one of the best people carriers on the market. In its normal guise the car will carry five but if you need seven seats then the Grand C4 Picasso is for you. All the C4 versions come with lots of equipment and comfort levels.
In addition, the C4 Cactus is an eye-catching SUV that is gaining attention; it has great handling, good looks and an eye-catching material strip down the side to help prevent knocks and dents in car parks.
The C5 is a spacious saloon with a touch of luxury and a better specification than many of its rivals – in many ways the C5 re-established Citroen’s as a quality carmaker.
For those who need the space, the Berlingo Multispace is a great people carrier with a solid feel and the Dispatch Combi is an MPV that can carry nine in comfort.
While Citroen has split its offering in two, all of the cars can still be bought in dealerships. The DS3 is a well-equipped small car while the DS4 is a large family car with bold styling and a lot to offer. The DS5 is not quite an MPV though it does have a higher ride and lots of space with an all-round premium feel.
