Welcome to the forum Citroenclub

I think this would be decided by what you think is 'better'? A original Citroen radio will not look out of place and fit nicely with its surroundings but may not have all the features you want.

An aftermarket stereo opens up to a massive range of budgets and style and some have input for factory fitted stalk controls but an adaptor may be needed, which will increase the cost.

A Citroen branded radio will need to be coded (if its anything like the earlier C3) and this my need a dealer trip but you will have full function of the stalk controls without needing an adaptor.


If you only wanted Bluetooth for calls, maybe a Parrot bluetooth kit would be an option.

You can have a look at these car stereos (here) to get an idea of what is available, and this link is for an adaptor that can interface the factory stalks with a compatible stereo.
