The Citroen C4 SpaceTourer is a five-seater MPV that has stylish looks and a comfortable ride. Its rivals are the Ford C-Max, Renault Scenic and VW Golf SV – a more practical version of the standard Golf.
The C4 SpaceTourer has a great interior – the dashboard looks and feels upmarket, while the large windows give the cabin an airy and spacious feel. The three seats in the back easily sit adults and have a wide range of adjustability. The boot, meanwhile, is one of the biggest in class.
Comfort is a very sought-after characteristic when choosing an MPV and the C4 SpaceTourer has the most cosseting ride in its class. It’s also quiet at motorway speeds, but tends to roll a bit in corners.
There is a broad choice of engines for the C4 SpaceTourer – all are modern and refined and, in the case of the diesels, very cheap to run. The 115hp diesel is recommended by experts for it’s impressive fuel economy, while if you plan to only travel short urban trips, then the 130hp petrol makes more sense.
Equipment levels are generous with entry-level cars getting air-conditioning, all-round electric windows, a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a panoramic windscreen as standard.

The C4 SpaceTourer is a stylish MPV with a slightly unintuitive interior
The new C4 SpaceTourer marks a big improvement over its predecessor. Not only is it a striking looker both inside and out, but Citroen has made further strides in quality.
The low weight helps improve fuel economy (along with a range of frugal engines) and importantly, it’s comfortable and spacious. If you don’t need more than that – and relish a bit of French style – it’s possibly the car for you.
