Citroen C4 Picasso

2016 Citroen C4 Picasso

By Franky Johnson

Ciroen's C4 Picasso is the French manufacturer's latest MPV entry and is based on the standard C4 hatchback. The Picasso comes with a wide selection of 1.6-litre engines in both petrol and diesel forms. The most powerful of these is a 1.6-litre diesel engine producing around 116kW of power and will get you from 0-100km/h in nine seconds with a top speed of 210km/h and yet has a combined fuel consumption of 6.1 litres/100km.

The interior provides five seats and seven in the larger Grand Coupé version and has a larger boot space than most of its rivals. The C4 Picasso comes with alloy wheels, Bluetooth and a six-speaker stereo with a USB socket as standard. Range-topping models have everything from adaptive cruise control to a front passenger’s seat that reclines like an old-school business-class chair.

The normal C4 hatchback has always been a very sensible car and the conversion to an MPV model could have made it even better, while trying to compete with rivals such as the Ford C-Max and the Renault Scenic. The Picasso is a great city runabout for its size and an excellent people carrier.
