Citroën’s popular MPV models, C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso, have jointly won the ‘Best Medium MPV’ award in DieselCar & EcoCar Magazine’s ‘Top 50’ for 2018.
DieselCar & EcoCar Magazine’s Top 50 showcases the best cars currently on sale in the UK and is judged by a team of journalists who have tested more than 175 cars over the past year.
The awards have proven to be a lucky omen for the Picasso, with the vehicle picking up the ‘Best Medium MPV’ award for the third successive year.
Speaking about the award for Citroën, the magazine’s editor and publisher, Ian Robertson said: “French manufacturers know a thing or two about MPVs, and the Citroën C4 Picasso and seven-seat Grand C4 Picasso have added a dose of charm to the class since they arrived. Contemporary styling meets practicality and there are lots of thoughtful touches inside. It feels modern in the front too, where digital screens replace traditional gauges and in particular, the top Flair models are packed with technology. For 2018, the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso become C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer, to align them with the rest of the Citroën MPV range.”
The C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso were praised for their practicality, modern styling and technology following a robust and comprehensive road test scoring system. The French manufacturer also saw their C4 Cactus perform well, securing 28th place overall in the list.
Souad Wrixen, Citroën UK’s Marketing Director, commented; “We are delighted to be recognised by DieselCar & EcoCar Magazine once again in its Top 50 issue. The Picasso name has changed to SpaceTourer, yet all the benefits of these popular family vehicles remain the same. I am sure C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer will continue to win prestigious awards such as the DieselCar & EcoCar Magazine Best Medium MPV prize in the future, thanks to the many qualities these models continue to offer.”
