Citroën Grand C4 Picasso 2.0 BlueHDi Exclusive 5d (2014/14) - Owner Review

Versatile 2-7 seats option, large, flat boot space when seats not needed. Less practical point; when you use 7 seats there is no where to secure the load cover.

Practical family & business work-horse.

Same, if financial appeal (RRP/taxable/P11d value) and practicality is maintained over rivals, or similar.

Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Comfortable ride; clutch pedal is abrupt and strongly sprung. ECO stop-start does not auto-engage the parking brake when stopped (I'm used to VW-AUDI-SEAT stop/start system that does), the parking brake does apply automatically when the engine is stopped manually, so why not link it to the auto stop/start too?

What's it like to park?
Easy enough, it has good mirrors, rear sensors and rear camera. Front sensors are an option.

Living with it

3 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing actually went wrong, but Touch screen controls & steering wheel controls are not 'intuitive', they could be much better. Since the weather turned cold various niggles shown up; THE METAL INSERTS ON THE STEERING WHEEL FREEZE YOUR HANDS EVERY MORNING! the washer bottle is too small, doesn't have low level warning and can not be seen to check the level. The key-less entry sensors don't work when the car is dirty, approx. 1000 miles of salt & road grime is enough to make them intermittently not work.

What's most practical about your car?
Versatile 2-7 seats option, large, flat boot space when seats not needed. Less practical point; when you use 7 seats there is no where to secure the load cover.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Cruise control.
