Which used Citroën Grand C4 Picasso MPV should I buy?
A diesel engine makes the most sense in a car of this size, due to their economy and pulling power. We find that the 108bhp 1.6-litre diesel suits the car best because the 138bhp 2.0 version isn’t vastly better. If you want a petrol-powered Grand C4 Picasso, then choose between the 1.8- and 2.0-litre engines. We'd go for the former because it's not much slower than the latter.
Stretch your budget, if possible, and avoid the entry-level LX model. It's sparsely equipped and doesn't even have air-con. The SX is a much better bet, but the VTR+ gets alloy wheels and rear electric windows and therefore looks a lot smarter. The Exclusive has climate control and parking sensors but isn’t necessarily worth the extra cost.
The manual gearbox may be clunky and vague, but it is likely to be more dependable than the EGS option, so you might as well stick with a traditional manual.
