Citroen C4 Picasso/Grand Picasso

What is it?
This practical and stylish people carrier from Citroën is available as both a seven seater (Grand Picasso) and a five seater (Picasso).

What are it like inside?
The interior is spacious and the seating arrangement good. The layout is easy to use with a nice commanding driving position and thanks to the wide angle panoramic windscreen the cabin is airy and bright.

What is it like to drive?
The ride comfort in the Picasso is superb and Citroen have focused on the car’s refinement, over performance, which is more important in this market.

What is it likely to cost?
Two versions area available for the five seater and are priced at €26,890 and €27,890. The seven seater ranges in price from €29,190 to €32,290. The same engine is offered across the range so there is little difference in fuel economy. For both the seven and five seater economy roughly ranges from 4.8 to 5.2 litres per 100 km.

Overall
Practical family motoring doesn’t condemn family drivers to a life of boredom and the C4 Picasso is a very practical, stylish MPV that is fun to drive.
