Which used Citroën C4 Picasso MPV should I buy?
The petrol engines in the C4 Picasso range are smooth and fairly punchy units, but economy predictably suffers. The 1.6 BlueHDi diesel engine is the one to go for. It’s smooth and reasonably gutsy, so rarely feels short of puff. We’d stick with the standard six-speed manual gearbox over the dim-witted EAT6 automatic option. The 2.0 BlueHDi may be more powerful than the 1.6 BlueHDi, but it’s noisier and not as smooth, so isn’t worth the extra.
Of the three trims on offer, entry-level Touch has all you could need, including air-con and electric windows. You also get a 7.0in touchscreen. However, next-step-up Feel is our favourite, with a huge 12.0in driver display, sat-nav and rear parking sensors. Top-spec Flair is great, too, but it’s pricey new, meaning it might translate into unnecessary expense on the used car forecourt.
