2016 66 Citroen Despatch and 2017 17 DS5 Performance Line

2017 66 Citroen Dispatch 1.6 HDi thingy

Looks like the above. Not bad looking for a van. New model, released last year.



Probably the best driving van i've driven (excluding the VW Caddy and Ford Transit Connect which are more low-down and car-like)



Very nice steering, gearchange. Very good refinement from engine. Decent ride Smart interior. All round very good. Engine went well (i assume it's the 100ps 1.6) Very smooth and punchy enough. Trip computer says early 40's mpg and that was after some traffic, too.



There was a downside though. Bit of a shame...but there was a resonance from the tyres. Like..a kind of tyre noise...but not. It remained constant. So it seemed a bit loud at low speeds...but not very noticeable at higher speeds. Took the shine off what was otherwise a very good drive!

Looked like this, but in white:

I dont think i'd driven one of these before, so was keen to see what it was like.



The car itself was nothing special to drive. It was nice enough, no bad bits really...but nothing seemed especially great. However, the interior IS really funky!

with a really cool aircraft type thing going on above you, with twin rooflight things:

Really cool.



However, this and the multiple pillars do give this car a cosy, coupe like feel. This could be a good thing...but it also felt quite...hemmed in. It's certainly unusual and vastly more interesting than most other cars i've driven.



The seats also felt quite nice and cushy. I'm desperate for toilet now so have to go!

So after recalling your driving memories of these two Citroen you then need to take a poo.

I had eaten quite a large quantity of kebab meat the night before and the time had come to open the emergency valve.
