The 408 is pleasant inside and fairly well equipped. The closely-related Citroën C5 X is more comfortable and cheaper to buy, but the plug-in hybrid 408's slightly longer electric range makes it a better choice for company car buyers.

For a reasonable amount of extra money this adds adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, front parking sensors and 19in alloys. It’s worth considering.

The cheaper and less powerful of the two plug-in hybrid options is only a little bit slower in a straight-line sprint than the more expensive Hybrid 225. The official electric range is 40 miles.
