What Car? says
The Citroen Grand C4 Picasso is great at being a practical seven-seat MPV. Its cabin is stylish and well thought out, and running costs are low. It’s merely adequate to drive, though.

There are 11 Citroën Grand C4 Picasso versions available
Target Price team says:
There’s a choice of engines, gearboxes and trim levels, but we’d go for the 1.6-litre diesel with a manual gearbox in Exclusive trim. It’s powerful enough, even if there are seven people on board, the manual ’box is preferable to the slow and jerky ETG6 semi-automatic, and Exclusive is good value and comes with lots of desirable equipment as standard.
The 2.0-litre diesel version isn’t such a good buy. The engine is noisy, the abrupt power delivery is frustrating, and it’s available only in the more expensive trims, so doesn’t make as much financial sense.
There are lots of accessories available to make your Grand C4 Picasso even more versatile, including roof bars, a towbar and onboard Wi-Fi.
The Citroen Service plan is also worth considering; for a one-off payment, it covers all service costs for three years or 35,000 miles.
