I Have had my car for 5 months now and am very pleased with it. I had test drives in the Touran, S Max, Scenic and Zafira and only the S-Max came close. I have 3 children and regularly taxi other children in the car and the interior is so roomy and practical. The engine is so refined and the dashboard is well designed and interesting: so many cars interiors are boring!!! Reliability so far has been excellent and I am very pleased with the fit and finish, Citroen are now starting to make interesting, well built cars that stand out from the crowd. Well done!!
You have to get used to the 6-speed electronic gear system. Once you are in synch with the way it engages the gears (need to restraint on the accelerator pedal), you are on the way for a rewarding drive. The engine is smooth and adequate even quick when changing lanes. Surprisingly cornering is not as bad as anticipated eventhough the ride is a bit too plush. Since the cabin is quite insulated, little rattle of seats / squeaks can be heard. Brakes are powerful but tend to grip easily at slow speed. The panaromic windscreen is a boon to look at the skies and tall buildings but it let in quite a lot of heat (my country Singapore lies at 1 degree off the equator). The heat insulated windscreen should be standard. Luckily the additional solar film helps reduce this. The paint work (metallic brown) can be improved as there is a bit of tonality diffrences when seen in certain light intensity and angle. My car came with one of the metallic trimming at aircon vents missing and was replaced at 1st servicing. There is also a slight leak at the boot door caused by loose third brake light installation (the agent repaired this on the second day). The 3rd row seats is easy to fold flat with just a simple pull of a strap. However, boot space is limited with all 7 seats up. Could have improve on this. The space below the two 3rd row seats surprisingly can swallow quite a bit. Overall a very good car eventhough the ride is soft compared to my previous Mondeo.
I have only had my car for 5 days and I am extremely pleased. I owned a Grand Scenic 2.0 16v petrol auto before and the 1.6Hdi EGS is an excellent engine. I was worried about its ability to pull the big Picasso's weight, but its excellent.
The EGS gearbox is fine and pulls extremely well. I leave it in Auto mode all the time and will see how it adapts to my driving style.
The build quality is very good and the car looks stunning in Nocciola with the 17" Roskilde alloys. The panoramic roof helps to lighten the black trim, but I still prefer this to the light grey.
The RT4 Navidrive is great with a Jukebox hard drive function to load all your MP3's onto, phone and voice recognition. Quick to function and navigate, supports postcodes and looks great in the dash.
In my opinion the C4 Grand Picasso is the best looking car currently in this sector!
We'll see how it fares over the coming months.
I have had this vehicle since March 07 and have covered 22,ooo miles of trouble free motoring.It is a first class work horse.I frequently have to carry 6 6ft tall teenage air cadets with kit and it does it with ease. They all enjoy playing with the vast amount of gadgets. I live in a very hilly area and average 45mpg short distance and 50-55 long distance using the limiter(and I have size 14 shoes and a heavy touch ) .It has been used as a family car,a teenagers taxi,a van etc etc etc Having owned 2 2cv,an AX ,a Saxo,2Xantia saloon ,2 Xantia estates,3 Xara Picasso, this is by far the very best Citroen have owned. My wife has severe arthritis in all her joints and she finds this car very easy to drive and climb in and out of. My thanks to All the staff at Bassetts Citroen Carmarthen for the first class and very personal service we have had over the last 12 years,even though they are a main dealer they have been faultless with their servive..Efion,Colin,Emyr,Cath,Jeff ,Dallas.
