CITROEN C3 Picasso review

NGC verdict 08.04.2009

Having created a name with Picasso, Citroen is now filling a niche with a C3 version, with which Iain Robertson can find NO areas of disagreement, and declares it as one of the best compact MPVs / family cars he has driven in many years.

Excitement has been sorely missing from the motorcar business for some time. Oh, sure, you can become excited, enthralled even, with the latest Italian supercar, a new Jaguar, or even a Porsche, but the outcome is ultimately unrealistic. It is pleasant to carry out a double-take on the latest and most attractively unusual car. It inspires curiosity. It makes you look. But, ask yourself, when was the last time that a regular, mainstream motorcar made you spin on your heels?
