Comfy and spacious - however, the automatic gearbox is an absolute nightmare. Fault, after fault, after fault which Citroen aren’t interested in. Gearbox replaced at 30k under warranty. Now on 60k and it’s as bad as ever but out of warranty. The electronic management of the gearbox is a major design flaw. The manual should be better, although generally the fully integrated electronic control system in the car is just a design technique to get you to return the car to Citroen for regular (and very expensive) repairs. Car struggles to get better than 26mpg. And no, this isn’t a one-off fault report, a google search will reveal just how well known the fault on the AL4 auto gearbox is. Be prepared to spend £2k every 30K miles for a new gearbox.
