Age: 53 and 58
Job: Registrar (Julia)
Drives: Citroën C3 Picasso
Julia: “We’re looking to replace our six-year-old C3 Picasso, but we’ve struggled to find a new car that’s frugal to run, easy to drive and comfy for four tall adults.
“We hope that the C3 Aircross can build on those qualities of the C3 Picasso while injecting some style into the formula.
“We go out as a family fairly often, so the C3 Aircross’s practical interior is perfect for us, as is its large boot.
“The driving position is good and the controls on the dashboard are well arranged.
“The quality of the interior materials isn’t that great, but it’s not too much of an issue.”
Jeremy: “I’m 6ft 4in tall and have long legs, so in many cars I have to have the driver’s seat pushed all the way back, impinging on leg room for those in the rear. However, I’m impressed with the C3 Aircross; there’s enough leg room in the front that I don’t have to slide the seat right back, and head room is comfortable.”
“This car is well thought out, with plenty of practical details, such as the sliding rear seats and slot for storing the parcel shelf when it’s not in use.
“I also like that it has a normal handbrake lever rather than an electric one, and that a rear-view camera is on the options list.
“Plus, the infotainment touchscreen is fairly easy to use.”
