The list prices for the C-Crosser certainly aren’t cheap, but you should have little difficulty securing a four-figure discount. It's unlikely to retain its value as well as the class leaders, and running costs are no better than average. The car averages less than 40mpg on the standard 16-inch alloy wheels, and even less on the range-topping Exclusive’s 18-inch wheels.
Citroën C-CROSSER 4x4 quality & reliability
The C-Crosser’s cabin doesn’t have the plush materials and showroom appeal of a Freelander or BMW X3, so it doesn’t feel anywhere near as classy. However, it has a sturdy feel throughout and appears to be built to stand the test of time. Citroën has upped its game in recent reliability surveys, and Mitsubishi's involvement should make the car more robust.

The C-Crosser's part- or full-time four-wheel-drive system gives plenty of grip in all conditions, and stability control on every model gives extra confidence. All models have six airbags, too. An alarm, immobiliser and deadlocks are provided to keep your car safe from thieves.
