The Citroen Grand C4 Picasso is now on sale in the UK, offering one of the most interesting people carriers in the market with funky looks, frugal engines, and amazing features. It is French though, so there might be some question marks above its quality.
Still, with a starting price of £19,200, the Grand C4 Picasso represents a risk well worth taking. The car comes with a loft-inspired interior, full of air and light and high-tech gadgets. You get a 7-inch Touch Drive interface combined with a HD 12-inch panoramic screen, as well as an all-new 360? Vision system.
The Picasso also sets new standards in cabin space in rows two & three and offers class-leading cargo space: 793-litres with row two seats in their forward position. Despite being better-equipped and more spacious than the previous model, the new Picasso is 150 kg lighter, thanks to PSA’s EMP2 platform (Efficient Modular Platform 2).
The new Citroen Grand C4 Picasso comes with the new ETG6 (6-speed Efficient Tronic Gearbox) – available with e-HDi 90 and e-HDi 115 engine. The former setup averages 74.3 mpg, and the latter 70.6. You also have the car with the new Euro 6 compliant BlueHDi engine fitted with Citroen’s innovative Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system.
