Which used Citroën Synergie MPV should I buy?
The Synergie was initially sold with a 123bhp 2.0-litre petrol engine and a 92bhp 1.9-litre diesel. The 1.9 diesel was detuned to produce 90bhp in October 1999 before being discontinued a year later, while a more powerful 2.0-litre petrol with 138bhp and a 110bhp 2.0-litre diesel were introduced in May 2000.
Of all these options, the 2.0-litre diesel isour pick, because of its better pull and light thirst. All Synergies have air-conditioning and twin front airbags, but side and curtain bags weren't fitted, and some of the seats make do with a lap belt rather than a full three-point seatbelt. Stepping up to a mid-range SX car brings climate control and an electric sunroof, but only the flagship Exclusive models came with a CD player, alloy wheels and heated, electrically adjustable door mirrors as standard.
