Despite having cornered the market in cheap French charm, Citroen is a mixed message for car buyers. Its move away from the overt quirkiness that was once its trademark has made it a more sensible choice, but we preferred it when it was just a bit mad. Can't argue with its aggressive pricing tactics though.
£11,750 - £15,475
If you're a French car maker a 'van with windows' is obligatory. Usual rules apply - loads of space, low-rent interior, cheerful but unrefined.
£7,995 - £10,045
A facelift last year made one of the best city cars even more of a smart purchase
£11,390 - £17,090
The C3 isn’t likely to attract boy racers any time soon, and it wouldn’t want to, either...
£13,200 - £17,295
Breaking news: tall french car shockingly reveals ‘charisma’ – C3 Picasso is a tempting mini-MPV.
£15,750 - £21,645
Citroen was brave with the last C4, and buyers didn't really appreciate it. So it's played it safe this time around. If you want exciting, buy the DS4.
£17,950 - £21,750
It might be named after a contrary painter, but the Picasso is surprisingly straightforward.
£19,895 - £24,095
A good offering from Citroen, but still not a driver’s car.
£20,995 - £25,200
A delicious slice of French quirkiness, with plenty of space
in the boot for works of cubism and enormous, difficult-to-understand novels
and large wheels of festering cheese.
£33,855 - £38,985
Francophile? Rich? Need a luxo-barge? Look no further. For the rest of us, it’s too far-out.
£24,615 - £28,215
Why on Earth would they think you want an SUV with a Citroen badge? It would be like Jimmy Choo making a pair of work boots. Mitsubishi builds it, but even so...
£12,850 - £21,150
Courageous and successful effort from citroen to take on the Mini. A former topgear car of the year
£18,150 - £23,950
Like a C4, but cooler and more desirable. What's not to like? Splendidly different, innovative and entertaining.
£22,400 - £32,200
Another distinctive Citroen, the DS5 is outlandish yet also possesses the ability to back it all up
£17,560 - £24,115
How many other big MPVs don’t make you look like you've have
a total excision of character, individuality and taste? None, that’s how many.
Well, not many. And they won't be as good as this.
