2007 Citroen Picasso VTX 1.6 HDi 92bhp turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
It is a great all rounder. 57mpg loads of room - as good as a van with the 3 individual rear seats out. I closed the hatch on a new motorbike in a box.
They are available with huge discounts from online brokers. The VTX has cruise control, Metallic, alloys + air con as standard and I paid £9,800 brand new.
The 110bhp version would be better, but 92 is respectable.
High seating position with comfortable suspension means that the handling is average - the Picasso is what it is.
Don't hate it for not being something else.
The air con is a little under powered.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi, I am interested if you could please update your review. I had 2 of these cars and did a review (2004 from Botswana), and both started out fine, but ended up being whole heaps of crap in a very short time.

OK - July 2010 update
I still have the car - done nearly 40,000 miles and not a hint of a problem with anything. Great MPG and still on original tyres. £110 pa road tax. The 1.6 HDi manual version is the one to get IMHO.

Still got the car. Now at 70,000 miles.
The only problem has been a pin hole in one of the metal diesel fuel pipes, which resulted in fuel spurting out. The mechanic said it could be due to contaminated fuel. Had the air con re-gassed and it is now better than it was when new.
Still very pleased with it.
