What is it?
The expected best-seller in the new Citroën Grand C4 Picasso range.
The latest version of Citroën’s large seven-seat MPV is longer, narrower and lower than the old model, and sits on the French firm’s EMP2 platform. Company officials say the platform has not only allowed them to save weight, some 110kg, but also enabled the car's engineers to make the chassis stronger and stiffer overall.
It’s also permitted Citroën to lower both the engine and the floor, resulting in more space inside than ever before. With five seats in place there’s 632 litres of storage space, rising to 793 litres with the second row of seats pushed forward.
Fold them flat, and the available space rockets to 2181 litres. That’s almost 10 per cent more than that offered by the Ford S-Max, an MPV we currently rate as the class leader.
