Citroen Grand C4 Picasso review 

Citoren news and reviews

It looks great on the outside, with sleek LED lights just above the headlights and a grille that looks a bit Star Trek. Around the side, it has typical Germanic lines as opposed to French ones, and clever grey roof rails that go all the way back and sweep round into a C shape. It's really easy to change from a five-seater to a seven-seater, and although headroom isn't fantastic in the third row, it's not too bad altogether.

Upfront, Citroen has gone all posh, with a smart dashboard with some high-quality materials. Although, the bottom half of the cabin does feel a little cheap. There's a wonderful 12-inch screen, and a little touchscreen for the navigation and infotainment systems. You can even get Facebook … wow.

So, what's it like to drive? The Citroen Grand C4 Picasso is not a sporty car and, thankfully, Citroen has avoided the temptation to make it ride horribly and handle adroitly. It does lean a bit into corners, but that's not what the car is about, it's about comfort and refinement - on the motorway it's really hushed even at top speeds.

Citroen is really proud of its new engine, a 2.0-litre diesel 148bhp, which is really efficient and manages 67mpg and emits just 110g/km of CO2. The 1.6 diesel with 115bhp and just over 100g/km of CO2 should be a good bet, too.

The Citroen Grand C4 Picasso is all about the ease-of-use. It's a comfortable car to drive, and we love the visibility provided by the giant windscreen and massive glass panels. It ticks all the boxes, and as MPVs go right now, it's one of the best.
