Picasso c4 2017

2017 Citroen C4 Picasso Review

The five-seat C4 Picasso and seven-seat Grand C4 Picasso are super-practical machines that tick the MPV box to a tee. They eschew the current SUV craze in the interests of optimum practicality, and are all the better for it. Two ideal models for the tricky task of carrying people and keeping them all happy.

Body Style: MPV Seats: 5 or 7 MRP from £20,175 - £29,900 

Did you know? Citroen pays royalties to the Picasso Administration for the rights to use the famous artist’s name.

Verdict:★★★★★★★★☆☆ (8/10)

Citroen has been building a Picasso-branded people carrier since 1999, and has constantly perfected the formula over several generations in that time.

Design & Exterior:★★★★★★★★☆☆ (8/10)

The Citroen C4 Picasso is a people carrier that’s proud of its upright stance, deep body sides and ultra-glassy cabin. It’s not trying to be something it’s not, and the the interior benefits enormously from this, as we’ll see. That’s not to say it’s dull and formulaic, though - far from it. Like many modern Citroens, this is a vehicle that’s anything but dull.

It has a classy appearance, further enhanced by greater use of chrome trim with the 2016 facelift. It also has a distinctive front end, with split headlight units placing the LED running lights up high and the main units lower down. Black roof pillars and some contrast roof colours add to the effect - it’s an MPV with which you can have almost Mini-like customisation. The C4 Picasso is the sportier and more rakish of the two, with the seven-seat Grand C4 Picasso sporting a more upright look, but one that’s still more curvaceous than box-like MPVs of old.

Verdict | Design | Interior | Technology | Performance | Safety | Specs | Running Costs | Pricing

Interior & Comfort: ★★★★★★★★★☆ (9/10)

Inside is where the C4 Picasso needs to do well. It does, particularly with the super-airy feel afforded by its massive panoramic windscreen, although this is tempered by the fact the overall design is starting to show its age a little: it lacks the designery flair of more modern Citroens, and isn’t as premium in feel as more modern Peugeot-Citroens. It’s better-served by the technology installed within though, particularly the distinctive centre touchscreen that’s standard on all models and masterminds most of the car’s controls. Sure, it’s rather fiddly, having to press several buttons simply to change the temperature, but it’s neat tech once you’re familiar with it.

Mounted above this screen is an excellent large-format set of digital instruments, which look great. Widescreen sat nav feeds through this panel, where fitted, and it allows everyone to see where you’re going (and how fast you’re moving). Indeed, the open-plan feel to the C4 Picasso’s cockpit is one of its most appealing aspects, something reinforced by the large glass area and brilliant forward visibility from its ultra-thin windscreen pillars.

The seats up front are comfortable, and the three chairs in the middle row are good for growing families. Each slides and reclines individually, which is a nice touch, and there are fold-up tables on the front seat backs. The third-row seats in the Grand C4 Picasso are a lot more cramped, naturally, but they’re OK for kids and Citroen has been careful to engineer in oft-overlooked details such as ample space for feet. As with all the other seats, they get their own head restraints, while their occupants are well served with cupholders and air vents.


The C4 Picasso and, in particular, the Grand C4 Picasso are designed for maximum practicality. The ingenious folding configurations of the seats are practicality personified - the base outer middle row seats springs up so you can slide it forward and open up a huge walk-through space to the third row, for example. It can also raise up to form a booster seat for children.

Seats individually fold in every which way: if you want, you can lower four rear seats and leave just the middle seat perched upright between the front seats. The third-row seats in the Grand C4 Picasso fold flat into the floor, and the middle seats also lay down flat, for a completely level van-like space.

And what space it offers. In the Grand C4 Picasso, with all the seats down, there’s an extraordinary 2181 litres of space, making it more like a van than a car. The space is well-shaped with square dimensions and plenty of width. Even the five-seat C4 Picasso has 1851 with the seats down - and 630 litres with them up. In five-seat mode, the Grand C4 Picasso has betwen 632-793 litres, depending on where you’ve positioned the sliding rear seats, but this drops to just 165 litres with all seven seats in use.

Min: 630 litres (Grand C4 Picasso: 165 litres)

Technology & Connectivity: ★★★★★★★★★☆ (9/10)

Citroen serves you well for technology and connectivity in the C4 Picasso. All models get the fancy 7in Touch Drive interface, through which is controlled the climate control, stereo and telephone. Bluetooth with media streaming is standard, as is a USB socket, and a DAB radio is controlled through steering wheel buttons. Even both Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink smartphone connectivity are included.

Move one trim up from base and Citroen throws in its Connect Box emergency contact system - if you crash, you can jab one button to speak to an operator and alert emergency services. Sat nav is standardised, as is the striking 12in panoramic HD central display. Move up to Flair and a fancy high-tech Park Assist self-parking system is standard, along with a reversing camera, blind spot monitoring and keyless go. All models get LED running lights as well.

Verdict | Design | Interior | Technology | Performance | Safety | Specs | Running Costs | Pricing

Performance & Handling:★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ (6/10)

The C4 Picasso is not a sports car in disguise. It places great emphasis, quite rightly, on ride quality. Around town, it proves supple on everyday roads, absorbing bumps with a layer of reasonably soft cotton wool and not degenerating too much until roads get really gritty. The ride is quiet as well, although at higher speeds, its tall body and supple setup means passengers can roll about a bit. Beware if anyone gets carsick.

There’s much less emphasis on handling, so it doesn’t really matter that the light steering doesn’t have much feel, and it isn’t all that eager to whip through twisting roads. Best sit back and take things steady - your passengers will certainly appreciate this, particularly those in the seven-seat Grand C4 Picasso.

Most C4 Picasso owners choose diesel, and we don’t blame them. Both the 1.6 BlueHDi and 2.0 BlueHDi are effortless and easy going, with many years’ experience of making friendly diesel engines showing in their likeable nature. A surprise alternative is the petrol engine - it sounds small, at 1.2 litres, but the PureTech motor performs surprisingly well. It’s not rocket-ship fast, but it’s almost as flexible as the diesels and is less rattly around town. Given the cash saving on offer, it’s worth at least taking a test drive.

Safety Features: ★★★★★★★★★☆ (9/10)

In 2013, Euro NCAP awarded the C4 Picasso a five-star safety rating, with 86% for adult occupant and an even better 88% for child occupant. Pedestrian protection is less impressive but it scored well for safety assist - and improvements since the facelift mean it would likely perform similarly well today.

There are ISOFIX mounting points on all rear seats, standard cruise control with speed limiter, unfastened seatbelt warning on all seats and hazard lights that flash automatically if you slow down or change lane sharply. All models get rear parking sensors and all but base trim lacks front parking sensors. The top trim’s 360-degree around-view parking camera gives further supermarket car park safety, while faster-road convenience is aided by the availability of automatic headlight main beam assist.

Further optional active safety features include radar cruise control with collision alert, active lane departure warning and, yes, active blind spot assist. Every car has a coffee break warning as standard, and an optional driver alert system is also offered. You can even get a traffic sign recognition system.

Verdict | Design | Interior | Technology | Performance | Safety | Specs | Running Costs | Pricing

Specs and Trim Levels:★★★★★★★★☆☆ (8/10)


It’s rather a limited range of colours for the C4 Picasso: there are only seven, and four of them are very sobre: Shark grey, Cumulus grey, Soft sand and Onyx black. More vibrant is Polar white, but the two most attractive colours are Ruby red and the gorgeous Lazuli blue. You can combine them with a black roof and door mirrors for a fancier look.

Interior colours include norma Slate grey with either cloth or half-leather, a richer Dune grey and a very avant-garde Levanzo blue cloth. You can’t get full leather in a C4 Picasso.

Trim Levels

Trim levels are pleasingly simple: Touch Edition, Feel and Flair. No silly names or indecipherable letters here. Touch Edition models have 16-inch alloys, front fog lights and body-colour door handles and mirrors, so they don’t look too downmarket. Inside, they have air con, alarm, electric door mirrors and a height-adjust driver’s seat.

Feel is more popular. It adds the striking-looking 12in central instrument display, the option of Levanzo blue cloth, electric-fold door mirrors, bigger 17-inch alloys, more chrome exterior trim and fog lights that see around corners.

Flair is very well-equipped indeed. It has 18-inch wheels, panoramic sunroof, reversing camera, keyless-go, part-leather seats, blind spot monitor and a front passenger seat that has extra fold-out panels so you can recline it like an aircraft seat. There’s even built-in massaging.

Size and Dimensions

The Grand C4 Picasso is longer and a little taller than the C4 Picasso. That’s because it has a longer wheelbase, which liberates more space for those in the back. They’re the same width though. Towing weights range from 640kg for the 1.2-litre C4 Picasso, to 750kg for the powerful 2.0-litre BlueHDi.

Max towing weight without brake

From 640 kg (1.2 PureTech) - 750kg (2.0 BlueHDi 150 EAT6)

Verdict | Design | Interior | Technology | Performance | Safety | Specs | Running Costs | Pricing

Running Costs & Fuel Economy:★★★★★★★★☆☆ (8/10)

Fuel economy is eyebrow-raising. The petrol averages up to 56.5mpg in 130hp guise, even in Grand C4 Picasso form. As for the diesels, how economical do you want your people carrier? Take a C4 Picasso 1.6 BlueHDi 120 and official combined economy of 74.3mpg is yours, combined with CO2 emissions of just 100g/km. Bigger wheels will knock a few mpg off that, but it’s still impressive. Even the automatic 2.0-litre BlueHDi will averages up to 65.7mpg.

Reliability and servicing

Citroen has long been able to do better in this area, but its latest cars show it is at least getting there. The well-proven C4 Picasso is decent for dependability, though we’d perhaps avoid the top-spec Flair for ultimate long-term reliability, given all the fancy electronics fitted to it.


12 months or 12,500 miles


12 months or 16,000 miles

Verdict | Design | Interior | Technology | Performance | Safety | Specs | Running Costs | Pricing

Pricing:★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7/10)

Base petrol-engine C4 Picasso are very competitively priced. You can get a 1.2 PureTech 110 Touch Edition for just over £20,000 - that’s Ford Focus five-door hatch money. We prefer the Feel trim, mind, and that forces an upgrade to the 1.2 PureTech 130: it’s yours for £22k. Need seven seats instead of five? The Grand C4 Picasso costs around £1500 more.

Want a diesel? You’re looking at from £21k for a basic 100hp Touch Edition C4 Picasso: the preferable 1.6 BlueHDi 120 Feel is just over £23k, with the Grand C4 Picasso costing just under £25,000. Move to Flair trim and things quickly become expensive: a 2.0-litre BlueHDi 150 with an auto, in seven-seat Grand guise, is £30k.

Verdict | Design | Interior | Technology | Performance | Safety | Specs | Running Costs | Pricing


Cost Conscious

1.2 PureTech 100 Touch Edition - if the most for least cash is all, you won’t feel short-changed here

Large Families

1.6 BlueHDi 120 Feel Grand - the perfect family seven-seater that wants for nothing

Luxury Seeker

2.0 BlueHDi 150 EAT6 Flair Grand - limo-like space and luxury. You even get a massage seat like in a Mercedes S-Class


Ford C-Max and Grand C-Max

More utilitarian-looking than the Citroens, both outside and in, but they’re the driver’s choice for people-lugging families

Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic

Renault has reinvented the MPV with a crossover SUV look. The Scenic looks really striking and it’s OK to drive, too

Vauxhall Zafira Tourer

Ageing now, but still worth a look as it’s very practical. Drives better than you’d think as well

Volkswagen Touran

It looks boxy and utilitarian, but it feels posher inside, and exhibits plenty of Germanic logic throughout

Kia Carens

The value-priced seven-seat people carrier. Again, Kia’s compact MPV is not new or particularly standout, but you get a lot for your cash

What others say

Top Gear

“The latest C4 Picasso is comfier and more versatile than the SUV crossovers that are all the rage.”

Car Buyer

“There are a number of MPV rivals able to accommodate large families, but few are as cutting-edge in design as the attractive Grand C4 Picasso.”

Citroën C4 Picasso 2017: qué nos gusta y qué no

Hemos tenido la oportunidad de probar de nuevo el Citroën C4 Picasso y el Grand C4 Picasso. Ambos llegaron al mercado en junio de 2016, como un nuevo “restyling” de la segunda generación, llegada en 2013.

Citroën C4 Picasso 2017: fotos

Por nuestras manos han pasado un Citroën C4 Picasso BlueHDi de 120 CV (diésel) y un Citroën Grand C4 Picasso THP de 165 CV (gasolina). Ambos los hemos recibido asociados a la caja de cambios automática de seis velocidades y en su acabado tope de gama, denominado “Shine”.

Pasamos a hablar de nuestras impresiones tras varios días al volante de estas unidades.

Lo que nos gusta del Citroën C4 Picasso 2017

Cambio automático EAT6. Realmente me ha gustado cómo trabaja la caja de cambios automática de Citroën. Siendo de tipo convertidor de par, apenas se aleja de las buenas sensaciones que podemos encontrar en otras tecnologías de doble embrague. El hecho de que tengamos levas tras el volante aporta un extra, aunque dudo que acabes recurriendo a ellas durante la conducción.

Si aceleras con suavidad, las velocidades irán engranándose de forma fluida. Cuando necesites un impulso, pisa a fondo el pedal derecho y no te quedará otra que escuchar un sonoro motor revolucionado. Sobre todo, la mecánica de gasolina es especialmente ruidosa en estas maniobras.

Esta transmisión la puedes adquirir asociada a dos versiones de gasolina (131 y 165 CV) y a dos diésel (120 y 150 CV).

Absorción de baches. Pasar por encima de badenes, de cualquier otro pequeño obstáculo o atravesar un cambio de rasante no será un problema con este coche, ya que tiene una suspensión esponjosa y agradable. Eso sí, hazlo todo con el automóvil lo más recto posible, porque el balanceo lateral sigue siendo el “talón de Aquiles” de este vehículo (y del segmento del monovolumen en general).

Espacio interior. Pocos monovolúmenes pueden presumir de disponer de un habitáculo tan bien aprovechado como el del Citroën C4 Picasso (lo mismo con la carrocería Grand). Sobre todo, en su configuración con cambio automático, la zona del túnel central queda muy liberada, gracias a que el cajón puede desplazarse y hasta retirarse y a que la palanca selectora del cambio la encontramos tras el volante.

La sensación cuando estamos al volante es de una amplitud enorme y el contar con asientos individuales en las plazas traseras hace que sea uno de los pocos automóviles que recomendaría de verdad para transportar a tres pasajeros en ellas.

En el caso del Citroën Grand C4 Picasso, tienes dos plazas extra -tercera fila- que ocupan el espacio del maletero. Estos asientos los dejaría para algún desplazamiento puntual y no para viajes largos.

Capacidad de carga. Impresionante lo que cabe en la parte trasera de este vehículo, que homologa 537 litros de volumen de maletero en su carrocería convencional y de 643 litros si hablamos de la carrocería larga del “Grand”.

En este último, plegando las dos filas de asientos traseras te vas a encontrar con 1.843 litros. Pocos en su categoría son capaces de hacerle frente en este sentido. Prueba a meter una gran carga y no te olvides de llevarla correctamente asegurada.

Bien equipado. Aunque el diseño y el equipamiento esté algo obsoleto, no debemos olvidar que ofrece prácticamente de todo lo que uno puede esperar en un coche de este segmento: asientos calefatables, funciones de masaje, control de velocidad de crucero, portón trasero de apertura y cierre eléctrico y sistemas de ayuda a la conducción (me gusta cómo trabaja el “Lane Assist”). Realmente no encuentro nada en lo que no ofrezca una solución o alternativa al equipamiento de modelos más modernos.

Lo que menos nos gusta del Citroën C4 Picasso 2017

Comportamiento en curva. Como ya hemos dicho antes, absorbe bien los baches, pero se balancea cuando el automóvil se sale de la línea recta. No da especialmente confianza a la hora de tomar curvas, lo que no quiere decir que no puedas tomarlas a una velocidad similar que con otros modelos del segmento que dan mejores sensaciones en este sentido.

En realidad, una vez que te acostumbras a su movimiento en las curvas, te puedes relajar en cierto sentido.

Entrega de la potencia. La falta de ella es más notable en marchas cortas y la echo de menos sobre todo en la unidad de 165 CV. Hasta que no llegamos a la parte alta del cuentarrevoluciones, no tenemos un par que nos recuerde a que estamos conduciendo un coche de esa potencia. Por otro lado, tampoco creo que sea lo que buscan los clientes de este segmento, por lo que puede que no sea algo que te resulte relevante o decisivo a la hora de comprarlo.

Diseño. Que sea un coche de 2013 (el de segunda generación) actualizado se nota. Las líneas intentan adaptarse a los nuevos tiempos pero el segmento SUV se está comiendo a los monovolúmenes en este sentido.

Tampoco parece importar a los conductores, que el año pasado lo colocaron como el más vendido de su categoría, con 13.879 unidades matriculadas. También han empezado bien los primeros meses de 2017.

Mejor optar por las llantas de 18 pulgadas bitono, que son opcionales y sustituyen a las de serie de 17 pulgadas.

Sistema multimedia. Sus dispositivos de información y entretenimiento no resulta demasiado intuitivo y no me parece que responda demasiado rápido a las órdenes que se le dan. Te va a servir y hará su trabajo correctamente, pero no termino de acostumbrarme a todos los botones que hay repartidos entre su consola central y el volante.

Como todo, puede ser cuestión de acabar haciéndose a su manejo.

2017 Citroen Grand C4 Picasso – Made for Larger Families

The Citroen C4 Picasso is one of the best mid-size MPVs currently on the market. We also think it is the best Citroen’s model at the moment. They managed to spice the dull MPV market with an interesting and futuristic looking vehicle. It’s one of the most spacious cars in its class, especially if you go for the 2017 Citroen Grand C4 Picasso version which we’ll be discussing here. MPVs are not that common in America since everyone uses large pickups or SUVs, even as a daily drive. But in Europe, the streets are much narrower, the fuel is more expensive, and the paychecks are smaller, so it only makes sense that small diesel cars are the way to go.

The Picasso name was first used in the Xsara back in 1999. The Xsara kick had started the entire MPV trend before people were even hot for them. In 2006 as the segment grew they decided to transfer the platform and name to their more popular C4 model. The first generation of the C4 Picasso had lasted for around seven years before it received an update in 2013. Since then, it has won more than a dozen Best MPV prizes from various car review magazines and companies.

We immediately have to say that the exterior is interesting, but it’s nothing when compared to the super futuristic interior. The 2017 Citroen Grand C4 Picasso is mainly meant for larger families who have up to seven members, and this vehicle is capable of transporting them in perfect comfort.

Driving Experience, Comfort

The trademark feature of Citroen is noticeable once you start driving. The ride is super smooth and comfortable; it’s almost like you’re floating on a cushion of air. The 2017 Citroen Grand C4 Picasso manages to maintain the company’s reputation as it’s easily the most relaxed and comfortable vehicle in its segment. There’s next to no road, engine and wind noise at any speed. It’s great around the city, but it shows its merits on the motorway. It’s comfortable and spacious, especially if you go for the Grand version. It adds two more seats for the rearmost row, but they’re mainly meant to be used by smaller children. An adult will have a hard time fitting in or even sitting down for that matter. There’s simply not that much legroom. For kids, however, it’s perfect.

The biggest criticism for the Grand C4 Picasso comes due to its dynamic capabilities, or the lack of, to express it better. Although it’s good on the highway, the corners aren’t its friend. It exhibits way too much body roll thanks to the soft suspension and the steering wheel is less than communicative. It’s perfect for just driving around; it’s precise, and you’re in control of the car at all times, but you don’t feel that connection. The gearboxes don’t help in the case with their notchy feel and less than smooth action. We need to stress out that this vehicle is not made for enthusiastic driving, and the buyers that need a family car will need to cope with this.

The rivals are much better in corners, especially Ford’s in segment competitor, the C-MAX. You do get a trade-off, however. Ford may have the performance on its side, but it lacks the things the Citroen gets as a part of that. It’s not as comfortable nor is it as good at isolating you from everything when on a commute. It’s not as relaxed to drive too. The visibility is good thanks to the thin A-pillars and the large glass surface, even on the sunroof.

Engine, Specs, Performance

You have a lot of engine choices as well. There are a few petrol and a few diesels on offer, more than enough for most people. The smallest petrol is a three-cylinder 1.2-liter turbocharged unit producing 128 horsepower. It may be small, but it’s one of our favorites. It is an engine we consider to be the best out of the entire range. If you specify it with the PureTech model in VTR, trim you get the cheapest C4 Picasso. It’s more than enough to pull the large Grand C4 Picasso along. It will also get the car to 62 mph from the point of rest in about 10.2 seconds, second only to the most powerful petrol and diesel.

The first diesel on offer is the 1.6-liter BlueHDi 100 developing about 98 hp as the name suggests. Citroen says it is Europe’s best-selling engine, and we can see why, but we don’t know why people don’t go for the most potent version of the same engine. The 100 is economical, yes, and it gets very low CO2 emissions, but it is so slow you’ll have cars from 20 years ago honking at you. It takes 12.8 seconds to get to 62 mph. A number that was acceptable some ten years ago, but not now. Because you will be pushing it harder, you’ll also make it louder and less refined so keep that in mind.

The same 1.6-liter diesel is available with 118 horses. The 20 hp increase may seem dismal and not noticeable, but when you’re behind the steering wheel, we can guarantee it’s easily felt. The sprint to 62 mph drops by 1.4 seconds to 11.4 seconds, but more importantly you won’t be over-stressing this engine by constantly putting it under heavy load.

The flagship diesel produces much more respectable 148 horsepower. The unit developing that power is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder called the BlueHDi 150. It is less economical when compared to the 1.6 engines, but that’s to be expected. It is, however, much faster and more refined. Expect to hit 62 mph in just 9.7 seconds. Rather quick.

The fastest variant is undoubtedly the 1.6-liter petrol developing 163 horsepower, which also happens to be the most powerful option in the lineup. It will get the 2017 Citroen Grand C4 Picasso to 62 mph in 8.5 seconds. The bad thing is you can only get the sportiest 1.6 unit with an automatic transmission exclusively. This spoils the fun a lot for people who want a manual.

If you’re in the market for a midsize seven-seater, look no further. The 2017 Citroen Grand C4 Picasso is probably your safest bet. It’s got everything you want from an MPV: space, comfort, speed and practicality. The fact that it starts at less than 20,000 pounds is a great bonus too. With added options that we have this price can easily go up significantly but then again it will be one of the best people movers in the segment.
