Citroen C4 Grand Picasso
People carriers (or MPVs) are regularly accused of looking too similar these days; after all, how much further can the boundaries be pushed? As it turns out, quite a lot, and the Citroen C4 Grand Picasso is a perfect example of what thinking outside of the box can accomplish. It’s a big, spacious and eye wideningly stylish approach to family motoring that has some serious French flair!
Released in 2006, the Grand Picasso is instantly recognisable thanks to a futuristic design and massive front windscreen. It’s undeniably attractive on the outside, and the inside is no different thanks to a minimalist approach that really works. The amount of light that enters the cabin is outrageous and this creates an even bigger feeling of massive space, on top of what’s already there.
With 5 regular seats and 2 right at the back that are suitable for kids, the Citroen certainly is a people carrier. But on top of this there’s a decent sized boot and plenty of leg room so long journeys wouldn’t be a problem. Large families would love it, and it’s very easy to live with as an everyday car. The kit and gear is substantial too, which means it’s pretty good value, and add to that high safety scores and excellent reliability and overall it’s rather good to say the least.
For such a large auto it handles very well and the ride is comfortable thanks to some ingenious suspension systems. You wouldn’t buy a Grand Picasso for speed or thrills, so don’t expect it to handle like a sports car, but it’s competent in the corners nonetheless. There are several petrol and diesel engines available which provide a decent level of fuel economy too.
The great thing about searching for second hand cars for sale here at Motors.co.uk is that you’ll have no trouble coming across an array of awesome deals. With some seriously discounted prices, paying less for a used Citroen C4 Grand Picasso will be all but a given, so value for money is always on the cards.
So if you’re looking for a family friendly people carrier that looks great, has a serious amount of room inside and those all important 7 seats, the Grand Picasso should be one of the first you look at. Its French style shines though all over and it’ll certainly brighten up even the dullest of days.
