After visiting my local Citroen dealer today, I saw the new C-Crosser. We have ordered a Grand C4 picasso, and should be collecting it in five days' time. Anyway, first impressions of the car were relatively good, until we reached the interior. The dash wasn't terrible but was quite conservative to say that this is a new car, representing Citroen in the 4x4 sector. Compared to the C4, C4 Picasso, and C6, this is a very old-fashioned car. Things looked even more down as I looked towards the rear of the car. The 60/40 folding seats hindered practicality. The third row of seats was terrible. The seats were extremely firm, whilst the bottom of the seats were uncushioned and had just a bit a fabric stetched across, deckchair style. If I was looking for a mid-sized seven-seat 4x4 priced up to £25,000, I'd go for the Hyundai Santa Fe. It looks better, it's more versatile, and if you can live with the badge, then you've got yourself a great car.
