What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The C8 provides roomy, safe and practical family transport for up to seven people

Against Its controls take getting used to, and there’s not much room for seven and their luggage

Verdict You'll do well to find a used MPV that's as practical or as good value as a C8

Go for… 2.0 or 2.2 diesel

Avoid… 2.0 petrol

Citroën C8 MPV
  • 1. This is a fine people-carrier - there's plenty of space for seven
  • 2. Check the electrically operated sliding rear doors, as they have been known to give trouble
  • 3. If you're looking at a car with 15-inch wheels, check the tyres carefuly for excessive wear
  • 4. Check the instrument panel and automatic windscreen wipers (if fitted) carefully, as both have been known to suffer problems
  • 5. On a family workhorse like this, check the interior for scrapes, scuffs and damage
