I've had Citroen in the past and have always found them comfortable, but the Picasso takes it to the next level. We are a family of five and find it brilliant for any distance.
The model I have is the Exclusive with all the toys. The automatic climate control is fantastic.
The full glass sun roof makes the interior feel even bigger. I am 6ft tall and the roof must be at least 8 inches from the top of my head.
The drive is excellent, very smooth with good acceleration and brakes to match.
I have covered 13800 miles in only four months from new and apart from the three problems mentioned above, two of which the dealer fixed no problem right away the car has been 100% in every other way.
The fuel gauge issue is about to be resolved with re-programming the on board computer, the dealer has been very good, always approachable and happy to help.
The economy of the car is, in my case on average 54mpg, this is a mix of city, town, motorway and A roads which I think is excellent as its not a small vehicle.
It is the perfect family car with comfort, style, economy, performance and storage. Its only a group 7 to insure and falls into the £105.00 per year tax band.
