2014 Citroen Picasso

The latest Picasso is shorter reducing compared to outgoing model, which can make it a much more compact-searching compact MPV. The styling is sleek, but borderline bland, mainly within the rear. Obtaining a typical high vehicle home windows between thin support beams, a considerable quarter-light plus a £400 optional sunroof, there’s enough glass to develop tomato veggies.

Underneath the skin may be the business’s new EMP2 platform. It’s certainly versatile and is capable of doing being extended into five wheelbases and 4 different track dimensions, furthermore to accepting diesel, gas, hybrid and 4×4 hybrid drivelines.

The suspension is MacPherson-strut front, torsion beam rear. In-front you will find new aluminium-alloy lower beams towards saving weight (140kg generally) along with an changed structure and cooling pack to shorten the nose.

The wheels are pressed forward, while using the driveshafts slanted diagonally toward the modems. It appears clanky, nonetheless they have doubtless done their testing. Ditto the growing rear track, that’s carried out with wheel spacers. Careful charge of ft-in provides a twenty percent better tyre existence, while refurbished brakes offer forty percent better brake pad existence.

Cabin space is basically untouched using the new shorter configuration – really Citroën claims there’s a few centimetres more leg room within the back, although greater-spec cars have have a very possess a have a picnic trays that reduce rear passengers’ knee room.

That rear bench may be slid forward also to increase boot space within the standard 547 litres to 630 litres. Overall, however, you will find many leg and mind room for people people, an easy, airy atmosphere and comfy and provoking seats (provided you steer clear of the Lounge Pack option getting its questionable massage function and uncomfortable wrap-around mind vices). A large part seats fold (almost) flat for longer loads.

The dash is-electronic, with twin centred shows, the lower just like a touch screen obtaining a easy change system between shows for phone, satnav, heating and ventilation and radio. This really is frequently a brave whilst not altogether effective try to handle the confusing quantity of buttons in the current vehicle. The dual shows act like watching two televisions at the same time along with the touch screen requires a healthy stab to retort. Many of the priority functions (vehicle home windows defrost, radio volume) have separate analogue buttons, however, many (ventilation recirculation) require several stabs to prevent asphyxiation.
