Review: Citroen C4 Picasso (2007 – 2013)

Rating:

Versatile five-seat cabin with a 500-litre boot, plenty of clever touches inside, easy to fold rear seats, comfortable ride, decent value for money.

5-seater looks are ungainly. Seven-seat Grand C4 Picasso makes more sense, EGS gearbox is poor, doesn't as drive as well as alternatives like the Ford C-MAX. Serious problems developing with EGS gearbox.
