Summary:

A huge evolution for a Citroen

Faults:

Wheels weren't properly balanced from factory, causing some vibrations between 120/130 km/h. This was repaired under warranty.

General Comments:

This car doesn't feel like a regular Citroen.

Once you get inside this car, you notice that it has better materials than the previous Citroen models.

This car is very quiet, at any speed. The noise from the outside is very low (both from wind and road), making it a very comfortable car.

The seats aren't as soft as usual in a Citroen, but they are very ergonomic, like if it was for a sports car.

This version comes with 17" wheels and 'low profile' tires (205/50R17). While they provide good grip, this combination makes the car a little sensitive on roads with bad pavement, or bumps.

For its class, this car comes with virtually every piece of equipment you can dream of, and it's realy easy to use it.

The engine is enough for a family car, with a good torque and excellent fuel economy - I never got more than 6,2 litres/100 km.

Another good thing in this engine is that you feel that you have more power above the 1.800 rpm mark, but you still have a good engine below that mark, making it a very smooth engine to drive.

The brakes are great and very sensitive.

This car is an huge evolution from the previous models of Citroen, it's well built, and has lots of equipment.

It was a good surprise!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
