The Edition spec appears to be the most sensible choice in the range, coming with air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity for your phone, a socket for your MP3 player and remote central locking.
The range-topping Platinum trim has some gimmicky touches along with the more useful electric rear windows, automatic headlights and wipers and full climate control, but it costs substantially more and has difficulty justifying its premium.
We’d recommend avoiding avoid the sat-nav option; it’s a clunky system to use and costs about four times that of the best off-the-shelf units.
List prices are on a par with rival MPVs, before you take into account Citroën dealers’ legendary desire to do a deal; discounts should run well into four figures, while finance deals are also readily available.
On our test of the 99bhp 1.6-litre diesel we returned 43.4mpg, which is close to par for such a car and provides a more than decent range (477 miles). Don’t fall into the trap of buying diesel for the sake of economy, though; the 1.2 petrol is a nicer engine and your overall costs may actually be lower if you don’t do too many miles.
Its three-year/60,000-mile warranty is what you’d expect, but residual values are no more than average for this class, making it all the more important to negotiate a big discount when you buy.
