Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Citroen C-Crosser safety kit hasn't been tested by Euro NCAP, but the almost identical Mitsubishi Outlander was awarded four stars for adult occupant safety and three stars for child safety.

The Citroen comes with electronic stability control, which helps control a car when the driver loses control in a skid, as standard, plus twin front, side and curtain airbags. All three second row seats have Isofix child-seat mounting points.

When in five-seat mode, there's a decent amount of luggage space in the C-Crosser. The second row of seats folds quickly and easily to create a car with impressive load carrying ability (they also slide forward for extra room).

However with seven seats in use the boot is tiny and the seats are incredibly fiddly to put up and fold down again – the system is far from intuitive and even with instructions it’s a long-winded affair, with three straps and an awkward folding mechanism.

On the plus side the the tailgate opening is split, allowing a flat loading area with the lower portion open. This means there is no sill to lift heavy items over, and the lower tailgate can support a load of 200kg. There is a split level glove compartment, as well as generous door bins and front centre armrest. The tailgate opening is split, allowing a flat loading area with the lower portion open. This means there is no sill to lift heavy items over, and the lower tailgate portion can also support a load of 200kg.
