What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For It comes with a fine turbodiesel, seats up to eight and has sliding doors

Against The driving position is poor and even the priciest models lack safety kit

Verdict An old-school people carrier that could do with better safety provisions

Go for… Post-2000 diesel

Avoid… Early cars

Citroën Synergie MPV
  • 1. Look elsewhere for high quality - the interior plastics look and feel low-rent
  • 2. Check underneath the car, as problems with leaking cooling systems are common
  • 3. Make sure the gearbox works smoothly. If not, rain water may have got in and caused damage
  • 4. Ensure the clutch operates smoothly - the release bearings can fail after only 30,000 miles
  • 5. A couple of recalls have affected the Synergie, so check the necessary work has been done
