Citroen Space Tourer Car Lease
Sometimes, when more than five people need to travel together, even a big MPV doesn’t quite do the job. Now, the Citroen SpaceTourer seeks to satisfy the needs of the larger travelling group in the luxury minibus market.
The SpaceTourer is based on the popular Dispatch commercial van, which in turn is closely related to the Peugeot Expert and Toyota Proace. Changes to the bumpers and headlights distinguish the SpaceTourer from its hard-working sister models and, when fitted with alloy wheels, the big Citroen actually looks rather fetching.
The SpaceTourer can be chosen in two lengths. The M is a shade under five metres and the lengthy XL stretches a full 5.3 metres, allowing up to nine passengers to stretch out in comfort.
Family buyers are served by Feel, Flair and Rip Curl trims, but those looking for more practicality and comfort might be inclined to try the Business model.
Every engine for the SpaceTourer is a diesel, the least powerful being a BlueHDi 95 and the most powerful the BlueHDi 180, available only with a six-speed automatic gearbox.
The BlueHDi 115 with the six-speed manual gearbox has a decent amount of punch and feels flexible, pulling smoothly and progressively from low engine speeds. The gearshift is accurate, effortless and smooth.
The raised driving position is helpful, providing a commanding view of the road ahead and making it easier to place the car in corners. It also has an impressively tight turning circle and is a lot easier to park than you might think.
The SpaceTourer copes well with bumpy, broken roads. Citroen claims that the Dispatch van’s suspension has been comprehensively retuned for passenger duties and our experience seems to confirm that.
