What Car? says...

However long civilization lasts, it’s probably fair to say that Pablo Picasso’s artistic legacy will last longer than that of the Citroën C4 Picasso.

That’s not a slight against Citroën’s stoic MPV, but rather a reflection on the significance of Picasso’s work and the comparatively short time his name was tagged onto Citroën’s people-carriers.

Because now Citroën has, like a fickle modern art dealer, tossed his name aside in favour of a new one. It has newly christened the C4 Picasso as the C4 Spacetourer, bringing it in line with the French manufacturer’s biggest MPV, the nine-seat Spacetourer, while there’s also a seven-seat C4 Grand Spacetourer.

But we’re focusing on the five-seat version in this review. It promises to be one of the most practical cars of its type, with a roomy interior and a decent-sized boot. However, there’s plenty of five-seat MPV competition, including the BMW 2 Series Active TourerRenault Scenic and Volkswagen Golf SV.
