If you're after a value-packed, large people carrier, then the C8 is worth a look. It's one of the best value around, with a spacious interior, lots of comfort and family friendly features such as sliding side doors.

If you're after a value-packed, large people carrier, then the C8 is worth a look. It's one of the best value around, with a spacious interior, lots of comfort and family friendly features such as sliding side doors. Top-of-the range models are handsomely equipped, even by Citroën's usual high standards and dealers offer outstanding cashback promotions.

It's not great to drive, but makes a comfortable long distance cruiser. It also shares its underpinnings and looks with the Fiat Ulysse and Peugeot 807, but it's the C8 that's the best value.

What owners say...

 It is a Tardis. It doesn't appear to be any bigger than a Galaxy on the outside but it is on the inside.

 I can put a fridge in the back without taking any seats out.

 It's a massive box on wheels. Seats in it sits 7 adults. Seats out it swallows a three seater sofa. How more practical can you get?
