What is it?
Peugeot-Citroen’s Hybrid4 powertrain technology may have recently propelled it to the dizzy heights of second place in Europe’s overall hybrid car sales charts, but in our estimations it has yet to feature in a particularly good car.
Citroën’s hybrid DS5, meanwhile, seemed much the worse, to us, for the extra weight and complication of all that diesel-electric paraphernalia.
Unlike the RXH estate, it’s a genuine sub-100g/km model, it hasn’t had its suspension interfered with in the name of ‘ruggedisation’ and it doesn’t cost the thick end of £34,000. At least, not quite.
