Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Great m/way cruising with the cruise control. The ride is the usal citroen floating feeling. The automatic box (6 speed) is great though the 'manual' triptronic is gimmicky except for holding back speed down a long hill so as not to rely on the brakes alone.

What's it like to park?
large turning circle is a bit annoying though the front and rear parking sensors plus the dipping nearside wing mirror(in reverse) make up for it

Living with it

CD played had to be changed as CDs skipped

What's most practical about your car?
The space and load carrying ability coupled with the ease of driving an automatic. The lowering tail gate (using the suspension) is agood feature.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Cruise control/speed limiter. Self turning on lights/wipers and steering headlights
