Following the successful launch of the New Citroën Grand C4 Picasso earlier this year, the first generation Grand C4 Picasso has been named ‘Best MPV’ by What Car? in their annual Used Car of the Year Awards.
The judging panel identified the Grand C4 Picasso as offering family buyers in the used MPV segment “unbeatable value for money”, with practical features and a wide range of equipment that provides “almost everything a family could want”.
The awards were judged by a mixed panel of industry experts and members of the What Car? team. The MPV category was hotly contested, but the Grand C4 Picasso prevailed thanks to its overall appeal to larger or growing families who need to keep the cost of motoring to a minimum.
The Grand C4 Picasso 1.6 HDi VTR+ was chosen by the What Car? judges as the one to go for, with an example purchase price of just £8,000. This specific model was recommended for its space, comfort, affordability and low running costs.
The Grand C4 Picasso was also praised for its maximum five-star Euro NCAP rating and the three full-size seats in the second row, which all come with individual Isofix anchor points for child safety seats.
Jim Holder, Editor at What Car?, explained; “The Grand C4 Picasso has always stood out for its versatility and ease of use, especially for families. Couple that with prices that become very competitive on the used market and you have a very compelling offering.”
James Parfett, Citroën UK’s Communications Director, commented; “We are very proud that Grand C4 Picasso continues to pick up an impressive variety of awards. This latest accolade from What Car? is further evidence that the multi-award winning Picasso range has earned its reputation as one of the leading choices in the family car market. With both the first and the latest generation Grand C4 Picassos still winning so many awards, this trend looks set to continue.”
