Citroën Celebrates Impressive Double Win At Auto Express New Car Awards 2017
For an incredible fourth consecutive year, Citroën Grand C4 Picasso has been recognised as the ‘Best MPV’ at the Auto Express New Car Awards. Not to be outdone, C4 Cactus also scooped the ‘Best Small SUV’ title, marking this year’s ceremony with a successful double win for the French marque.
Auto Express’ judging panel of automotive experts has once again selected the family favourite Grand C4 Picasso as their ‘Best MPV’ at the Auto Express New Car Awards 2017, making this an impressive fourth consecutive win. The celebrations didn’t stop there either, as Citroën C4 Cactus scooped the ‘Best Small SUV’ title at the awards ceremony last night at the Hilton Hotel, London Bankside.
Grand C4 Picasso was praised once again for its contemporary design, practicality, comfort and safety, plus all the latest technological innovations. C4 Cactus was honoured for its ultra-stylish good looks and unique character that fully embodies Citroën’s ‘Be different, Feel good’ spirit.
Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief of Auto Express, said; “The Grand C4 Picasso’s fourth successive win is testament to the brilliance of the original design – it’s a cleverly thought-out MPV that does its job brilliantly. Citroën has also cleverly updated it to keep it ahead of the pack.”
“In the C4 Cactus, Citroën has not only created one of the most characterful small SUV’s, but also the best. As well as its cheeky character, it drives brilliantly, has a family-friendly interior and won’t cost the earth to buy or run – we love it!”
Bek Hassan, Citroën UK’s Managing Director, said; “It’s fantastic to see Grand C4 Picasso continue to lead the MPV sector, and for C4 Cactus to be recognised as the ‘Best Small SUV’ in a particularly hotly contested segment of the market. These latest Auto Express awards are a further endorsement of our product strategy, to create cars that are practical, comfortable, feature intelligent technologies, have distinctive looks, and ultimately exceed the expectations of our customers.”
New Citroën C3 also performed exceptionally well with a ‘Commended’ mention in the ‘Supermini’ category. The brand’s latest five-door model is everything customers expect a modern Citroën to be. New C3 delivers sector-leading levels of advanced comfort and an extensive number of customisation options with 36 different colour combinations to suit all personalities. The large panoramic sunroof and comfortable seats also promote well-being and emphasise a feeling of reassurance, comfort and calm.
