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; that's why the higher-output (113 or later 118bhp) 1.6 BlueHDi diesel engine is the one to go for. It’s smooth and reasonably gutsy, so it rarely feels short of puff. The 2.0 BlueHDi may be more powerful than the 1.6 BlueHDi, but it’s noisier and not as smooth, so it isn’t worth the extra.
We’d stick with the standard six-speed manual gearbox over the dim-witted ETG6 automated manual option, but if you really must have a self-shifter, go for an EAT6 that replaced it in 2015, because it's far smoother when changing gears.
Of the various trims on offer over the C4 Picasso's lifespan, VTR+ and Feel are our favourites. Each has everything you're likely to need, plus it has the useful additions of a DAB radio and rear parking sensors.
