C4 PICASSO STARTS LIFE WITH TOP HONOURS

Even before it arrives on UK shores in early 2007, the C4 Picasso has been voted MPV of the Year by the authoritative 4x4 & MPV Driver magazine.
Not content with one accolade, the striking new compact people carrier also picked up the specialist title's MPV Innovation of the Year for its Interior Lighting, thanks to its "use of natural light and no fewer than 32 different light sources".
And if further proof was needed to support CitroŽn's decision to continue selling the 5-seat Xsara Picasso, 4x4 & MPV Driver gave the best-selling model its MPV Deal of the Year title.
Describing the C4 Picasso as the most definitive example of a family car as now exists, the judges hailed its self-levelling rear suspension, outstanding light and visibility, premium quality feel, uncluttered dashboard, driving position, passenger space and comfort, safety focus, and general user-friendliness, placing it ahead of the shortlisted competition that included the Ford S-Max and the Mercedes R-Class.
On driving the C4 Picasso, the judges said: "With ride comfort, quietness and a relaxing measure of Gallic loping ability - plus of course 45mpg or so from the superb diesel - the C4 Picasso is a car any driver would look forward to spending a day in.
"As well as the class-firsts, the practicality and the attention to detail, there is a wow factor here that makes others in the class look rather dowdy and uninspiring," continued the judges. Full details of CitroŽn's trio of awards are contained in the November issue of 4x4 & MPV Driver magazine.
