There's a strong sense that the designers of the Citroen C4 Picasso were channelling the silent screams of an army of frustrated parents who wanted practical features in the interior and comfort over style. Their prayers have been answered emphatically.
There's no substitute for Citroen style, and the Citroen C4 Picasso is a definite head turner for such a big lady. It doesn't so much ape the features of its smaller C3 cousin as it does adapt them seamlessly into a larger design.
It's quiet for a multi person vehicle with no noticeable roaring as rushing as the car passes 60 mph.
