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.
£7,965 - £9,865
A facelift last year made one of the best city cars even more of a smart purchase
£10,550 - £16,110
The C3 isn’t likely to attract boy racers any time soon, and it wouldn’t want to, either...
£11,575 - £16,565
Breaking news: tall french car shockingly reveals ‘charisma’ – C3 Picasso is a tempting mini-MPV.
£14,905 - £20,915
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.
£16,160 - £22,415
It might be named after a contrary painter, but the Picasso is surprisingly straightforward.
£19,165 - £29,385
A good offering from Citroen, but still not a driver’s car.
£20,265 - £30,485
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...
£11,560 - £22,345
Courageous and successful effort from citroen to take on the Mini. A former topgear car of the year
£17,290 - £23,105
Like a C4, but cooler and more desirable. What's not to like? Splendidly different, innovative and entertaining.
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.
