The big windows of the Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer flood the interior with light and make the car extremely nice to sit in, while also giving it the best visibility in class. You can adjust the driver’s seat for height in all models and the steering wheel adjusts for both rake and reach.

Diesel models suffer from engine clatter on start-up, but once on the move they soon settle down, and the C4 is a relaxed cruiser thanks to its softly sprung suspension and excellent suppression of wind and road noise.

The car’s dashboard looks space-age thanks to its mix of curves and angles, but some of the controls aren’t as intuitive as they could be. However, as with most things, the more time you spend behind the wheel, the easier it all is to use.

The Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer’s design is something of a masterpiece. It mixes shapes, colours and plastic textures in a way that looks more eye-catching than anything else in the class. Indeed it's more attractive than many sports and luxury cars.

It also houses no less than four storage areas, including two lidded cubbyholes right on top of the dashboard. The downside of the Grand C4 SpaceTourer’s stylish interior design is that most of the car’s systems – including ventilation – are controlled via a seven-inch touchscreen that’s tricky to use when you’re on the move.

Equipment

Go for the Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer and you get the choice of three trim levels – Live, Sense and Shine. All models come pretty well equipped, with even basic Live versions coming with the likes of 16-inch alloys, DAB radio, air-con, cruise control, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, a 12-inch display screen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Citroen’s Connect Nav is also standard, and includes a three-year subscription to TomTom live services for live traffic information and updates.

Upgrade to a car in Sense trim and this adds larger 17-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors at the front, keyless entry and start, half leather seats and a rear parking camera. This trim level also comes with more safety equipment, such as driver attention alert, speed limit recognition technology and active safety brake, the latter of which warns the driver of an oncoming hazard before automatically applying the brakes in low speed situations.

Top-spec Shine versions, however, come with a semi-autonomous parking system (where the car steers and the driver operates the brakes, steering and gears) as well as keyless entry and go. Also standard on this trim level is a hands free tailgate that opens by waving your foot under the rear bumper, fold down tables for the second row of seats and a panoramic sunroof. 

Options

Seven different colours are available, with Polar White a standard no-cost paint option across the range. Perla Nera Black, Cumulus Grey, Platinum Grey, Soft Sand, Alchemy Blue and Ruby Red are all £545 each.

Dark cloth upholstery is standard on the entry-level Live model, but buyers can upgrade to ‘Dune Beige’ cloth upholstery for £500. The Shine trim can be upgraded from the half leather upholstery to full Nappa leather in either beige or black for £2,000. Space-saver spare wheels cost £100 and a reversing camera for the Live model is £200.
