2012 Citroen C4 Grand Picasso e-hdi 1.6 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
A splendid car for relaxed driving
Rear light failed. I had to replace the entire assembly, the tail lights are built in LEDs.
Otherwise, nothing, only routine maintenance.
This is my wife's car. she wasn't sure about the weird automatic gearshift, essentially a computer operated manual, but quickly found it responded well to unhurried driving. It certainly isn't a sporty car, but can get a move on if required, with an agility that belies its looks on bendy roads. It's very much a home cruising along main roads, quiet and smooth at all times.
It has a reasonably roomy interior, 5 adults each have their own seat in the first two rows, with sufficient but not vast amounts of leg room in the back. It also has two extra seats in a third row, although only pre-teen kids would have enough space for a long trip.
It has cavernous amounts of luggage space, and each of the 3 rear seats can be folded individually to make room for more stuff. A shame the seats don't fold to make a flat floor though. There is plenty stowage space in the car for odds and ends too.
She very much likes the cruise control and speed limiter, it is only too easy to creep above the speed limit without realising you are doing so, and likes the armrests on the front seats.
She doesn't like the fussy heater and A/C controls out of reach to all but the driver, but that is the only niggle she has with the car.
It uses remarkably little fuel, better than her less powerful but smaller Peugeot 307 it replaced.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
