    If Citroen want to make vehicles like Toyota, they should invest in a dealership like Toyota and reliability like Toyota. Otherwise, they should save their money.

    Wondering what Roland Barthes would make of it all. The chevron redesign has low soft curves, none of the angular precise intensity of the marques earlier style. Suggesting? The marque has lost its' power as a brand, almost as if the chevrons had melted.
    Ha ha!

    Looks pretty good. Its a van, looks like a van, but looks like it won't drive like a van. I would like more information on the variable stiffness springs and to try same, and the fuel economy and carbon emissions look very competitive.

    Both Volkswagon and Mercedes are making very competitive vehicles in this class. Just another contender for the people mover genre!

    They should have changed the C4 Picasso to the C4 Dali.
    Even the Chinese could like it, possibly thinking it short for Dalian.

    You know, there's this stuff called "hydraulic suspension" ... used reliably in Citroens for 65 years ... imagine a big van ... with hydraulic suspension. perfect ride comfort and load height under all loads.

    No hydraulics == .... why bother .... there is already dozens of variations of the same thing out there from many manufacturers. What sets this one apart from the rest is ... um... er. .... something special .. .um ... . tacky big plastic chevron badges ?? that's special right ??

    Their blurb...

    Dreaming of a vehicle that works for families and performs for business ? Dream no more and experience CitroŽn SpaceTourer. Cutting edge technology ensures a dynamic performance, remarkable fuel efficiency together with outstanding comfort, practicality and a 5-star EuroNCAP safety rating.

    Citroen used to make a CX Familiale. It did all of that and more. Seriously, if you self imported a Le Grande and replaced the badges with Citroen chevrons, all you would have done is reduced its value, upset the NRMA if it ever broke down and find it impossible to sell after you decided public transport buses are cheaper than driving your own. Makes as much sense as selling condoms to a bloke that has had a vasectomy.
