Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The C5 Aircross is Citroen's (late) leap onto the family-crossover bandwagon.

Pros
Very comfortable in all sorts of ways.
Looks different.
No sporty pretence

Cons
No sporty actuality.
Ride not as consistent as billed.
Occasionally irritating screen system

The Citroen C5 Aircross packs plenty of space and lots of tech into a stylish and comfortable package, but the infotainment systems in alternatives are easier to use.

Pros
Eye-catching looks
Big boot
Comfortable to drive

Cons
Some low-rent interior bits
Awkward infotainment system
No four-wheel-drive option

By:

The Ford Focus stands out as the best driver’s car in the class, with handling that truly entertains. It's complemented by a fine ride that almost matches a Volkswagen Golf for comfort and passenger space very nearly on a par with the Skoda Octavia. It's mainly the iffy interior quality and slightly lacklustre performance that mark it down.

Pros
Class-leading handling
Supple ride
Roomy rear seats

Cons
Mediocre performance
Golf is better equipped
Octavia has a much bigger boot

By: 
whatcar.com

Pros
Appealing looks
Value for money
Still great to drive

CONS
No electrified versions
1.0-litre petrol can feel strained
Seating position won't satisfy everyone
