Multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs) are hugely popular due to the fact that they are so practical and suit many motorists needs, but they are also famously not the most exciting automobiles. This has all changed with the new Citroen C4 Picasso, which has all the practicality of the top MPVs but also has a healthy dose of style. It is for this reason that it is many people’s pick for the MPV of the year.


With bold dynamic lines, clever use of glass, bold rear chevrons and an unmistakable light signature, the C4 Picasso has a fresh and distinctive design that you typically do not see with MPVs. You can even personalise yours with bi-tone roof and door mirror. If appearance is important to you in a vehicle but you need the space and practicality of an MPV, this vehicle could be the one for you.


The interior of the car is a great combination of comfort and style. It has an almost futuristic interior layout with luxurious materials to make the cabin extra comfortable, plus this is furthered by the fact that it is incredibly spacious inside. This makes it perfect for families or those that carry a lot of luggage around.


Behind the wheel, the C4 Picasso lives up to the Citroen reputation of being a smooth and enjoyable drive. Exterior noises are well suppressed, whilst the panoramic windscreen allows for fantastic visibility. In terms of engines,  the most efficient is the BlueHDi 100 – this returns 74.3 MPG with emissions of just 99 g/km. If you are in the market for a petrol car, the PureTech 130 is the pick of the bunch with 56.5 MPG and 115 g/km. It is rare to get such great
efficiency and low running costs with larger vehicles such as this, which is another reason that this is proving to be such a popular vehicle.


The new Citroen C4Picasso, available from Robins and Day is packed full of great technology too. This includes a number of intelligent driver aids to boost safety, plus the 7-inch Touch Drive interface works just like a smartphone and allows you easy control of navigation, music, your phone and more.
The MPV market is filled with all kinds of great automobiles, but none are quite like the Citroen C4 Picasso. It ticks all of the boxes in terms of size, comfort, practicality and efficiency, but it also has a cool style and is a superb driving experience.
