The Top Gear car review:Citroen C3 Picasso

Overall verdict
If you’re after a hauler that takes up little space you could do a lot worse.


Drives surprisingly well given its boxy proportions and role in life, styling


Stowage space lacking and petrol engines should be avoided


What is it?

The Citroen C3 Picasso is a clever little MPV. Not only does it make a genuine family car out of a supermini-sized wheelbase, the boxy thing is also better quality and better to drive than it has any right to be as a tall French car. Not riveting, but above expectations, and it’s strangely charismatic.

IN 2014, it got a new front end, an upgraded sat nav option with reversing camera plus new colours and trims. Not major changes, then, but none were needed.
