Citroen launches Nemo Multispace

The new Citroen Nemo Multispace is on sale now, with prices starting from 9995.

Buyers have two engine options to choose from - either a 75bhp 1.4 petrol or a 70bhp 1.4 diesel.

The petrol version is the cheapest option. It's capable of 42.2mpg and CO2 emissions are 165g/km, which means it will cost 150 a year in road tax.

For a premium of 1000, the diesel engine increases fuel economy to 62.8mpg and cuts CO2 emissions to 119g/km, so road tax will be just 35 a year.

The Nemo may look big, but its around the same size as a Ford Fiesta and has slightly more boot space. The rear seats can either be folded down for more space, or removed completely to create a 2500-litre load space.

Standard equipment on the single trim level includes twin sliding doors, a CD player and electric front windows. Air-conditioning is a 500 option.

The Nemo Multispace was developed in a joint venture with Fiat and Peugeot, whose versions are called the Qubo and Bipper.
