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
Ever thought you'd love a bit of Citroen quirkiness if it was built like a Toyota? Well, here's a city car that's actually built BY Toyota. Great but, oddly, you miss the quirks.
£10,550 - £16,110
A handsome supermini that sensibly swaps sporting pretensions for comfort and quality. Isn't likely to attract boy racers any time soon.
£11,575 - £16,565
Drives surprisingly well considering the fact its a stylised box on wheels and its purpose in life. 'Tis the MPV to get.
£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
Absolute gem of a small MPV. More attractive than Myleene Klass and with more clever storage solutions than a Swedish warehouse. Nothing out there to beat it.
£19,165 - £29,385
As identity crises go, you can't really beat a French car that longs to be German. Psychiatrists will have more fun with it than folk who swap it for their 3-Series.
£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
General de Gaulle would certainly have one if he wasn't dead. First Citroen for ages to honour the air-sprung oddness of the classic DS. A properly Gallic limo.
£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
Possibly the most stylish small car on sale today, but under the glitz lies a practical hatchback.
£17,290 - £23,105
Like a C4, but cooler and more desirable. What's not to like? Splendidly different, innovative and entertaining.
Citroen's third DS-badged model is a funky, alternative take on the posh German junior executive.
£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.
