French manufacturer Citroen over the past decade or so has undergone a huge makeover, carving a reputation for itself as being a quirky alternative to its rivals Ford and Vauxhall. With a history dating back to 1919, Citroen is now part of the PSA group, working alongside its sister company Peugeot. What sets Citroen apart is its focus on offbeat aesthetics, cheap pricing, and impeccable practicality. In its range are everything from small city cars to practical family-orientated MPVs, offering all buyers, whatever their needs, the chance to own something truly unique.
Citroen, like most brands, offers a range of small hatchbacks to suit most needs. The C1 city car, at the entry level of the range, is both fun and affordable to buy and run. In competition with the Hyundai i10, and the VW Up!, the C1 is the choice for people who still want style as well as function. The C3 is the supermini for adults. Sensible styling, quality materials, and good practicality make this a good option in the supermini marketplace. The Golf-challenging C4 take further expands upon this ethos. With a strong range of engines, and a comfy ride, the C4 is also reasonably priced. Whilst the cars in the C range of hatchbacks aren’t that exciting, for the practical buyer, they will not disappoint.
One area that Citroen has always excelled in is its Picasso range of MPVs. The boxy C3 Picasso is the entry-level model, offering incredible practicality, and a surprisingly good driving experience, in a small reasonably priced package. The C4 Picasso goes one step further. With market-leading flexibility, the C4 Picasso is comfortable however many people are in the car, making it a great choice for families. The Grand C4 Picasso adds in an extra two seats without compromising on versatility.
The C4 Cactus is Citroen’s entry into the crossover market, and boy have they got it right! Ignoring all modern convention, Citroen has created a car that is arguably the most practical car out there right now. There's even innovative airstrips down the side of the car, which means the end to those annoying supermarket dings. Add in futuristic styling, plus its low purchase price, and the Cactus is one of the most forward-thinking cars out there right now.
The DS brand, the luxury wing of Citroen, introduced in 2009, produces arguably the most recognisable cars in the range. The award-winning DS3 hatchback is quintessentially what the marque is all about. Iconic stylings, adaptable interior, and full of charm and character, the DS3 offers a genuine challenge to the Mini, at a more affordable price. The DS4 takes things a step further. A mad crossover of a hatchback, with a coupe shape, and an SUV ride height, the DS4 is seriously cool to look at. It’s also good to drive, and has a feel of genuine quality, making this a contender for both the BMW X6 and the VW Golf. The DS5, the biggest of the DS range, offers even more space and luxury. Add in beautiful design touches, and rarity, and the DS5, like the rest of the range, is one seriously good car.
