What used Citroën Grand C4 Picasso MPV will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Citroën Grand C4 Picasso MPV?

The Picasso will cost more to service than rivals such as the Ford S-Max, but you should be able to cut your bills if you shop around dealers for the best prices. Because the C4 Grand Picasso is only a few years old, many cars are still under Citroen's warranty.

The diesels are much more fuel-efficient, giving between 46mpg and 49mpg, with both petrol engines giving an average of 35mpg. Insurance bills shouldn't worry you, with the entry-level cars starting at group 6, and the range rising to group 9.

Depreciation is usually a sticking point with Citroens, but because the Picasso is an MPV, it should fare better than other models. Because it's got the added attraction of seven seats, it should hold its value better than the regular C4 Picasso.

It's too early to tell just how reliable the C4 Picasso will be. Initial reports look good, with owners mainly complaining about the interior build quality and the EGS gearbox.
