Citroen's C4 Picasso is back with all the bits we loved but now armed with an exciting new powertrain that promises not just a better driving experience, but one that will be easier on your wallet and better for the environment.

Built for comfort and designed to be different, the five-seater Citroen C4 Picasso appears to be the ideal urban compact multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) for small families in Singapore.

However, despite the French 'space egg' bagging European awards such as 'Family MPV of the Year' and 'Compact Family Car of the Year' in 2013 and 2014 respectively, it never really enjoyed the same popularity on our shores.

Replacing the old 1.6 e-HDi ETG6 is a greener and more efficient Picasso featuring Citroen's latest 1.6-litre BlueHDi turbodiesel engine and six-speed Aisin transmission. Will the Picasso finally gain the recognition it deserves?

The Picasso's assertive good looks are a good balance of French nonconformity and European modernity


Up close and Personal

Compared to the quirkier C4 Cactus, the design of the Picasso is a lot more sensible and sedated - but that's not to say that its construction is boring.

Clad in elegantly contoured lines that form its sheet metal and a facial expression defined by the trademark chrome double-chevron grille, which curves into a set of LED daytime running lights, the swanky-looking, lofty Picasso is sure to turn heads wherever it goes.


The Picasso's loft-like external appearance is a teaser of the space and comfort that await you the moment you climb inside its cabin. Even the largest of adults will appreciate the generous amounts of both head and legroom that the car provides.

This spacious ambience is intensified by Citroen's Zenith windscreen with sliding interior sun blinds. A panoramic view (best experienced on night drives with lounge beats) is achieved with the interior blinds slid up - a feeling akin to piloting the Millennium Falcon from the Star Wars movies.

Complementing the roominess of the cabin are equally inviting high-quality and soft-touch materials that canvas the interior - little in this segment can compare to the comfortable driving position and ergonomics of the Picasso. And just like before, you will enjoy the car's ample 537-litre boot even with all the rear seats up.

Taking centre stage is Citroen's nifty 7.0-inch touchpad that puts all the key in-car functions within your finger's reach
