Verdict

As far as stylish estate cars go, few can rival the good-looking C5 Tourer. The sharp lines are a stark contrast to the dull shape of the previous model and the C5 shows that Citroen has rediscovered its flair for unusual and striking design. But that hasn't come at the expense of practicality. There's a massive 1500-litres of boot space, while rear passenger room is good too. The C5's real strengths, however, are its superb levels of comfort and refinement which make it a great long distance car. A vastly improved interior, generous equipment levels and a range of excellent diesel engines make it even more attractive.

So is the Citroen C5 Tourer more worthy of your cash more than some of its rivals such as the Ford Mondeo Estate or the Vauxhall Insignia Sports Tourer? Read on for the full Citroen C5 Tourer review to find out.
