The Grand C4 Picasso combines sharp lines with beautiful curves to result in an exterior that allows for maximum space inside the cabin. The unique rear light clusters and chrome double chevron design at the front are unmistakable Citroen.
All models come with alloy wheels, remote central locking, and this wonderful panoramic windscreen. The Exclusive model we have here adds front fog lights, rear parking sensors, keyless entry, 17 inch alloys and integrated roof bars.
The Grand C4 Picasso is safer than ever, with standard safety equipment including ABS, electronic stability control, traction control, hill start assist and air bags for the driver, passenger and rear seat occupants. All these features result in the car being awarded 5-stars for safety by Euro NCAP.
The interior of the C4 Picasso is both luxurious and spacious. There's two driver information screens, with the lower 7 inch screen giving you control of the audio, telephone and climate control functions, while the larger 12 inch HD screen on top of the dashboard relays vital driver information. It also transforms into a rear-view parking camera when reverse gear is selected.
All models come with the 7 inch Touch Drive multimedia screen, front and rear electric windows, cruise control, an engine start button, Bluetooth and USB/MP3 compatibility with steering wheel audio controls. On this Exclusive model, DAB digital radio, dual-zone climate control, satellite navigation, reversing camera and keyless start are all included.
In the back you'll find three full-size adjustable rear seats, an additional 12-volt power socket and aircraft-style rear seat tables with cupholders, and there's plenty of storage around the whole cabin, including storage under the floors. A third row consisting of two extra seats give this car 7-seat capability.
Engines include the efficient 114PS 1.6-litre e-HDI diesel, or the more powerful 2-litre Blue HDi diesel. Both engines achieve over 70 miles per gallon combined with CO2 emissions of just over 100 grams per kilometre.
Both engines can be mated to an automatic gearbox as well.
The boot space isn't all that much with the 6th and 7th seats in place, but is a vast 632 litres with them folded flat, and expandable up to 793 litres with them in their forward most position.
With both rows of seats folded, the boot capacity is an almost van-like 2181 litres.
The boot light is also removable, which we can guarantee you'll use more than you think.
Overall the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso is one of the best family cars on sale in the UK. Its premium quality and useful features set it apart in the MPV sector.
