Citroen C4 Picasso Review

The Citroen C4 Picasso is definitely a stand out vehicle, with its five-seater MPV transforming itself into a machine from the future. But beyond its striking appearance is a new platform that allows for more passengers and luggage space compared to its predecessor. This model is definitely a compact people carrier class, not only able to drive superiorly on the road but also with the practical features you’ll need from a vehicle meant for large groups or families.

Pros

Although the C4 Picasso takes cues from the seven-seat Grand Picasso, the C4 Picasso is 12cm shorter and removes a third row of seats. The body shape is a complete turnaround from the seven-seater, featuring a twin-hatch opening and a removable Modubox in its car boot. Trim levels are in the form of an Exclusive, VTR+, and VTR, with the Exclusive carrying the pneumatic rear suspension, six-speed semi-automatic gearbox, quality seats, and 18-inch alloys.

VTR models’ engine range includes a 1997cc at 148bhp/251lb ft HDi or a 177lb ft/153bhp petrol, or a 1560cc HDi. The six-speed EGS6 gearbox comes with the Exclusive and VTR+ trims. The ETG gearbox that comes with the 1.6-litre eHDi at 115bhp comes with a conventional six-speed manual gearbox; this one performs smoothly on the road and has no problems either on urban roads or motorways. But expect it to be slightly harsh sounding compared to other diesel engines; thankfully it remains quiet most of the time due its refined powertrain. This top engine boasts of a 62mph acceleration at 11.8 seconds and the highest speed at 117mph.

Although handling isn’t a main asset of a people carrier like the C4 Picasso, this model manages to handle corners well and the steering nicely weighted given certain conditions. There’s no absence of assurance along typical road speeds. Plus the C4 Picasso is able to manoeuvre through tight car parking spaces. Weaving through traffic is no problem either and a stress-free experience.

Comfort is not an issue in the C4 Picasso, as all seats are clad in comfortable cloth upholstery. The Exclusive trim features a gorgeous half leather finish. Rear passengers will be treated to comfort even if there are three on board. Plus legroom can be adjusted by sliding the seats forward and backwards. Taller passengers won’t have any problem wither with the spacious headroom. Body roll is also kept at a minimum thanks to reconfigured suspension.

Cons

The only setback seen in the C4 Picasso is the Exclusive’s oversized front seats. The plus of the top range trim is the supportive and firm quality. And although the vehicle is comfortable on the road, it doesn’t deliver an exceptional experience. The loping ride is relaxed and familiar at the most, but doesn’t really entertain. The 2.0 HDi VTR+ has been reported to be disappointing on auto or manual mode, but progression feeling more fluid along automated manual mode. But expect to operate this mode as if you were on a manual ‘box and the need to lift off throttle before shifting into a new gear. Nonetheless the C4 Picasso does the job of being a people carrier; parents will have no issues with the minor setbacks.
