Which used Citroën C3 Picasso MPV should I buy?

The main question to answer will be whether to buy a petrol or diesel. The 1.4-litre petrol really does feel underpowered, especially on the motorway and when laden. The 1.6-litre petrol is better, though, and would be the model to choose if you cover low-to-medium mileages. If you’ll be doing a high mileage, however, then the diesels offer a better driving experience thanks to having more torque, and should be cheaper to run.

Citroen C3 Picasso trim levels are the VT, VTR+ and Exclusive with the VT offering two airbags, central locking, electric front windows and split folding rear seats. Its lack of air conditioning lead most first owners to opt for the VTR+ which, in addition, got side airbags, cruise control, 16in alloy wheels and front fog lights.
