Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 30 - 42 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

All versions of the C-Crosser are well equipped, so if you're buying new there's no need to worry about specifying expensive options; sat nav and metallic paint are the only major options. In terms of Citroen C-Crosser running costs the 2.2-litre HDI diesel offer 40mpg+ in everyday driving, it's reasonable to service and will retain much of its value over three years.

The greenest model in the range is, not surprisingly, the 2.2-litre HDi diesel. Fitted with this engine Citroen C-Crosser emissions are 191g/km of CO2 (194g/km on Exclusive models) and is capable of 39mpg on average.

Models from late 2009 are slightly cleaner with CO2 emissions of 185g/km of CO2. Economy remains unchanged.

The C-Crosser is essentially a slightly different version of the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Japanese firm has an excellent reliability record. The 2.2-litre HDI engine is Citroen's own and has been available for some time, although there have been a few recalls. Overall, Citroen C-Crosser reliability should not prove a cause for concern.
