Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Most buyers will opt for the 113bhp e-HDi diesel engine, and it’s easy to see why, because it’s economical, refined and delivers good performance from almost any revs.

Those who want a stronger diesel can go for the 148bhp Blue HDi unit, but it’s pretty noisy and is an expensive option.

We’d stick with the manual gearbox, even though it hasn’t got a very nice gearshift. The ETG6 semi-automatic ’box is more efficient in terms of emissions and economy, but it’s slow and jerky, so best avoided unless you must have a two-pedal car.

The C4 Picasso is available in four trims, and you have to opt for one of the more expensive ones to get the fancy instruments shown in our pictures. However, even entry-level cars come with alloy wheels, Bluetooth and a six-speaker stereo with a USB socket.
