Citroen Grand Picasso Review

The Citroen Grand Picasso or the Grand C4 Picasso was released in hopes of competing against the mid-sized MPVs. The Grand Picasso first came out in 2007, making a dent in the market with its French flair, sail-like quarter lights, a glass-house, and its unique windscreen. In terms of identity, the Grand Picasso is a five-seat MPV that has many similarities to a five-seat saloon and hatch. But it also offers a third row of seats that doesn’t get in the way of providing passengers with enough luggage space, all around comfort, and ride practicality.

Pros

The Grand Picasso sports a very original design in its windows, wheels, grille, and lights. But this comes as no surprise for anyone who’s been following Citroen’s reputation for design originality. The vehicle itself measures 1.66m in height, 1.83m in width, and 4.59m in length. You almost feel as if you’re stepping into the London Eye once you see the car cabin, thanks to the all around presence of glass. The A-pillar has been slimmed down to a skeletal size for added improvement. Shorter drivers will readily take in the windscreen that goes above their head and treats them to a panoramic view of the sky and the road.

Space is generous upfront, especially when it comes to headroom on all the other sides. The third row can be pushed into the floor by sampling pulling a strap. No need to put in extra effort to bring it back either. The boot is also generous in space and has a well-shaped square shape. Plus the boot includes a removable torch. The driving position is decent, and drivers can readily shift into comfort from the reach adjustable steering column. Storage is also not an issue in the cabin thanks to the two cup holders between seats, an air-conditioned central cubby, generous door bins, and an adequately sized glovebox.

The Grand Picasso comes with two 1.6-litre petrols and a 2.0- or 1.6-litre diesel engine. The petrol either comes with a direct injection or a turbocharge at THP 155. The 1.6 diesel unit is quite refined and able to arrive at a top speed of 107mph and arrive at 62mph in just 11.9 seconds. These engines can be matted with a six-speed auto, a six-speed paddle-shift automated manual, or manual gearboxes. For the most part, the Grand Picasso is able to ride just fine and is enough for anyone not really after a dynamic drive.

Cons

Bumps are readily soaked by this car’s handling, but if combined with a full load and driving along a country road the pace tends to slow down and becomes a little uncomfortable. Although the six-speeder includes compact column-mounted controls, they’re best avoided if you have a choice. Seamless shifting occurs but you’ll have some difficulty going into different gears. Plus the car tends to jerky and uncomfortable once you’re on automatic mode.

Although headroom is generous all around, legroom is only just enough in the middle row. Plus knee room tends to be compromised, making it difficult for taller passengers to squeeze in. The rear seats are only comfortable for pre-teen children.
