Which used Citroën C5 estate should I buy?

Finding a petrol-powered C5 Touring on the used market is nigh on impossible, so you'll probably find yourself looking for a diesel.

The 1.6-litre diesel with 108bhp may provide an official average of 50.4mpg, but it can feel underpowered. The 2.0-litre with 136bhp will suit most people, as it provides the best marriage of performance and economy. For more power check out the 2.2-litre with 171bhp, the rare 2.7-litre with 205bhp, or even the almost mythical 3.0-litre V6 with 237bhp.

The entry-level SX comes well equipped with climate and cruise controls as well as electric windows all round. Stump up for the VTR+ and you'll get alloys, automatic lights and wipers, and duel-zone climate control.

In mid-2009 the VTR+ Nav edition included sat-nav as standard. The top-of-the-range Exclusives have electrically adjustable seats, parking sensors and air suspension as standard.
