If you need a family-sized five-seat MPV but don't necessarily want one, then if your budget points you towards choosing one from the 2016-2018 period, you could look straight to this car, the improved more efficient and more sophisticated second generation Citroen C4 Picasso. It's extravagantly designed and comes with some genuinely innovative features. The basics of space, safety and cost-effectiveness are all taken care of, but where this model really excels is in the other things: style, technology and a very emotive feel. By People Carrying standards, it's a bit special.
Not every family needs seven seats in an MPV and for those that don't, the C4 Picasso has always offered a smartly-styled, hi-tech equipped and very practical alternative. Though not especially enjoyable to push hard, that's because it's aimed exactly where it should be targeted - at mums and dads rather than at driving enthusiasts, with impressive long distance comfort you'll also appreciate on the school run day-in and day-out.
This second generation version developed this proposition, then further sharpened it with the well-judged package of revisions introduced in 2016 - and it's these improved MK2 models we've been reviewing here. It its original form, this MK2 model's futuristic looks always seemed a little out of kilter with the old-tech petrol engines and rather basic levels of media connectivity provided. Once all of this was sorted, this C4 Picasso was freed up to offer perfect proof that a People Carrier could do more than just provide comfortable, efficient transport. It could be.. well, what Citroens once were: clever, futuristic, expressively designed. Cars you'd be genuinely proud to own.
We think you'd feel like that if you needed a model of this kind and this were on your driveway. True, it's a pity you have to stretch to an up-spec trim level for all the features that show this car at its best, but if you can do that and tick all the right boxes, you'll get an MPV that really seems to have been created with a bit of love. From the panoramic windscreen to the the widescreen HD instrument display to the fact that you can sit and Facebook your friends on the touch screen, it's a car you'll feel has been designed just that little bit differently.
In short, there are pleasing signs here of the Citroen we used to know. The manufacturer that took risks, pushed the boundaries of technology, created magic and brought us cars that sat apart from the ordinary norm. If that sounds appealing and you're in the market for a model like this one, then we think you'll find a lot here you'll like.
