I n things extravagance belongs to the C4 Grand Picasso to the old Citroën school. The unobstructed view thanks to the narrow roof pillars and panoramic windscreen is just as special among compact vans as the playful cockpit with a fixed steering wheel hub and centrally positioned digital instruments.

Citroen C4 Grand Picasso with a convincing diesel engine

Fans of the brand are just as little scared by the getting used to the operation of the Citroën C4 Grand Picasso as by the less dynamic driving behavior - as long as the comfort is right. The new top diesel with 163 hp promises a lot of this, because the cultivated, powerful two-liter works exclusively with a slow, but soft-shifting six-speed automatic converter, whose plastic selector lever is placed unfavorably on the steering wheel. Manual interventions that are rarely necessary are carried out using steering wheel rockers that are easy to grip.

On the other hand, the Citroën C4 Grand Picasso Exclusive version equipped with rear axle air suspension rolls in an unusually bumpy and bumpy manner - and tarnishes the otherwise typical brand image of the van.
