Citroen C – Crosser

The Citroen C-Crosser is the same car as the Mitsubishi Outlander and Peugeot’s 4007 – they’re identical but with different tinsel. Doesn’t make them bad though. Manufactured by Mitsubishi, they make a lot of sense.

Comfort
Firmly sprung but well damped, Citroen’s first 4×4 (ish) since the 2CV Mehari variant makes for a decent motorway companion. When things work this well and you don’t pay very much dynamically, the high driving position becomes a boon you get to like.

Performance
The 2.2-litre four-pot turbo diesel in the C-Crosser is a gem. It may only have 154bhp, but the car punts from rest to 62mph in just under 10 seconds and can overtake and ride the motorways with ease. A terminal speed of 124mph is perfectly achievable but unnecessary.

Cool
Acceptable parked on the drive, though don’t expect a C-Crosser to get you laid unless you live in a really rough town.

Quality
All the variants of this car are built by Mitsubishi, so although the C-Crosser is built with the exacting standards of the Japanese, it won’t win many design awards. Feels good inside though.

Handling
Very, very car-like, the C-Crosser has a well-judged chassis set-up that makes it genuinely fun to drive. It doesn’t get distracted by bumps and can be made to dispense quite a lot of speed on tight roads. Decent steering and strong brakes help.

Practicality
Pop-up kid’s seats in the back are a stroke of genius for families with kids and friends and kit to transport. The boot’s also big with just five to seat – it’ll hold 770litres. As an all-round car it’s hard to pick fault.

Running costs
Insurance at Group 12 feels steep, but around 40mpg is a nice surprise for an SUV, even a soft one. Not in the highest VED band for tax – but it’ll still hit you for £200 a year.

Ng is half Chinese and half British. His father is comedy legend of the 80s and 90s, Richard Ng. Carl earned a BBA at Westminster University in the UK where he also studied drama at the Tony Grecos Acting Studio.

Ng became unsatisfied with the work he was getting in London saying he was limited to ethnic roles. Later he moved to Thailand where he earned a living as a scuba instructor. He then returned to Hong Kong where he was approached to do some modeling.

With his chiseled good looks and witty charm, his career as a model took off, setting the stage for his break into the movie business.

In 2007, Ng will appear in three movies currently in production: Jessica Caught on Tape; Boarding Gate and Shadow of Pleasure. His other credits include The Counting House; Daai cheung foo 2 and Boon bin ling to name a few.
