I have a had a couple of the earlier Citroen C5 Estates with Hydractive suspension which gave you about 4" of additional lift and which was a real life savour on flooded roads...not sure they still off this suspenion option in newer citroens.

Not bad motors.

In fact all the motors like that, including the Renaults, Citreons, and Kias are quite nice.

130bhp 1.6 diesel Tekna, leather, front/rear cameras, heated seats switchable 4 wheel drive

54,000 miles/63 plate

I tried a Sportage but while it was more blingy, it was too light on the steering for me

“Are there any common problems or things to look out for?
Reportedly, the Qashqai suffers from various common issues, such as a weak battery, water getting into the cabin and the air-conditioning failing. Sometimes water gets into the parking sensors as well, which will cause them to fail.”

Water getting into the cabin. #-o maybe not ‘off the ground ’ enough.

No sensors, just cameras
