Based on the opinions of over 14,000 UK new car buyers, feeding back on models from 30 different manufacturers, Citroën’s C4 Picasso has scooped the title of ‘Best MPV’ in this year’s Driver Power survey. Combining C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso, Citroën’s people carrier was the only MPV to make the list of the top 100 models. C4 Picasso was recognised for its practicality and low running costs, and for its interior and exterior design. Citroën C1 was also a Bronze winner in the City Car category with an overall score of 89.46%.
The Driver Power survey is the largest and most in-depth car satisfaction survey in the UK. Now in its 17th year, Driver Power takes place annually and offers existing customers a chance to inform potential buyers about the positive and negative attributes of their cars. All models are rated across nine different categories, including interior & comfort, practicality & boot space, safety features, reliability & build quality, MPG & running costs and ride & handling.
C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso were praised, by those participating in this year’s survey, as the best car to own in the MPV category.
Available as two versions, a 5-seat model and the ‘Grand’ 7-seat version, C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer as they are now known, are modern, user-friendly and family-oriented MPVs that allow drivers and passengers alike to travel in supreme comfort. With class-leading space, innovative safety features and excellent fuel economy, the model continues to be a first choice for families.
Steve Fowler, Auto Express Editor-in-chief, said: “Citroën C4 Picasso’s Driver Power results prove that if you want practicality, MPVs are still hard to beat. Our readers raved about C4 Picasso’s boot space, child-friendly features and the flexible seating arrangement, making it the standout people carrier in this year’s survey.
“Family buyers who like to keep a close eye on their budgets will also be pleased with C4 Picasso, according to this year’s Driver Power results, as the stylish MPV was rated well for the fuel economy it offers.”
