What's the used Citroën Grand C4 Spacetourer MPV like?

If you need a good, used seven-seat car but don’t want something that looks like a box with four wheels and some windows, what can you buy? Some would suggest the answer is the car you see here, the spacious but funky Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer.

This MPV certainly ticks plenty of family-friendly boxes thanks to some of its clever design features. For a start, it can be a five-seater with a boot big enough for mountains of baby gear plus your pet dog, but if you empty the luggage space you have another option. You see when you lift up the boot floor, you'll find some hidden seats that pop up to turn the Grand C4 SpaceTourer into a seven-seat people carrier. And unlike in some rival MPVs, you won't have to beg adults to sit in those back two seats – they're big enough for grown-ups as well as kids.

Entry-level Touch offers air-con, electric windows and a 7.0in touchscreen. However, next-step-up Feel offers a huge 12in driver display, sat-nav and rear parking sensors. Top-spec Flair has an electric tailgate, a reversing camera, along with extra safety tech such as automatic emergency braking and blind spot monitoring. 

The range was updated in late 2020 to Live, Sense and Shine, and are essentially renames of what went before, except the entry-level Live model gained rear parking sensors and the 12in driver display and mid-range Sense has a reversing camera and safety pack.

On the road, it rides and handles well for a car of this size and is reasonably refined. The light steering makes easy work of parking and low-speed manoeuvres. However, it’s also rather numb, so doesn’t inspire confidence on faster roads. The supple suspension deals with big bumps pretty well, however, so you won’t wince every time you encounter a speed bump. Unfortunately, patchy, eroded surfaces unsettle the car a little too easily, especially at low speeds, meaning a trip through town isn’t as comfortable as it might be. 

Visibility is excellent in the SpaceTourer due to thin roof pillars and big windows. The driving position is good with plenty of adjustment, although it could do with more lumbar support. There are tonnes of storage areas, which is just as well because the glovebox is tiny. 

A flat rear floor and three individual middle-row seats mean that the SpaceTourer is perfect for both multiple children's car seats and broad-shouldered adults. True, the third-row is pokey, but you can slide the middle chairs forward to share leg room. With the third-row in place, a Ford Galaxy has greater luggage capacity, but when folded, you have a large, flat load area with a low entrance height that is especially good for dogs.
