    My car

    I bought the car a year ago and I am very pleased with it. The equivalent VW Golf would have cost 50% more, after negotiating discounts etc., so I regard the C4 as a complete bargain. The car is very comfortable and is pleasant to drive. I live in northern Scotland so it has to cope with being driven at speed through narrow bendy roads. It does it very well, in a slightly floaty French style. It only loses composure when being seriously pushed. The 1.6 HDi has plenty of oomph for overtaking and it is smooth and quiet. The boot takes all the cases for holidays. The only minor criticism I have is the rear visibility could be better.

    I have just completed an 800 mile trip across northern Britain and I have no back ache, the seats are excellent.

    My car

    I bought the new C4 after owning the original style C4 for over five years, completing well over trouble-free 80,000 miles. The old C4 was economical, comfortable, reliable, stylish and well-equipped.

    The new C4 is more economical and just as if not more reliable but lacks the original C4's bold styling - the big central speedo and fixed steering wheel centre have gone. It's gone main stream and hard to distinguish from boring Astras and the like.

    The spec of the VTR+ has changed - in come DRL, fog lamps linked to the steering/trafficators at night, folding mirrors, bluetooth, USB/iPod link, an improved display for the radio and trip computer and reversing sensors but out go auto-lighting, auto-wipers, climate control and the extremely useful shopping pull out in the boot.

    The conversion to RHD is just the same - the wipers and handbrake are still set for a driver on the left - but there is now a key hole in the driver's door.

    I've had the car for over a year now. The initial road tax was "nil"; this year it's £20.

    The 12,500 mile service was a fraction over £200 at the supplying dealer's workshop, and there has been nothing out of order during that time to trigger a warranty claim.

    MPG has not dropped below 56mpg, and 64mpg is regularly achieved over a tankful in hot weather.

    The seats are firm and comfortable, but not up to the armchair standards of the original C4 VTR+, but it feel tauter and lighter when driving along.

    Recommended!

    My car

    mpg not what they say,at 58mpg overall.Musn't grumble as previous Citroen-a 1980's BX19 TRS petrol auto,could only manage 22mpg. Overall a magnificent piece of design and engineering.A pity it's not British,but after my woeful Rover sterling 2.5 auto it's no wonder Rover went bust
