What was the best selling mini MPV in the UK in 2001? Get the dunce's hat on if you plumped for the Fiat Multipla or the Nissan Almera Tino. If you opted for the Vauxhall Zafira or the Renault Scenic you were close, but no cigar. The car that topped the chart was the Citroen Xsara Picasso. Why? A combination of keen pricing and an attractive all-round blend of qualities proved irresistible to UK buyers. This equals plenty of choice for the used buyer although genuine bargains may be somewhat thin on the ground.
After making "Every Loser Wins" by Nick Berry the best selling record of 1986 and returning Mrs Thatcher to power time and again, it might be prudent to question the judgement of the UK population, but in the case of the Citroen Xsara Picasso it earned its No 1 sales slot by right. As a used proposition it makes sound sense, the aggressive pricing from new helping to offset the high demand and consequentially high residual values these models command. Your best bet is to try to find a well looked after 2.0-litre HDi model, preferably in the more desirable SX trim. The Xsara Picasso proved that a Citroen for the common man didn't have to be bland. Here's to adventure.
