Citroen MPV carries off What Car? award

The judges in the What Car? awards have chosen the Citroen C3 Picasso PureTech 110 Edition as “Best Buy for less than £20,000” in the MPV category.

The Citroen C3 Picasso PureTech 110 Edition was recognised for its practicality, comfort and class leading engine earlier this evening, winning the title ‘MPV Best Buy for less than £20,000’ at the What Car? Car of the Year Awards 2017.

Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car?, commented: “The funky Citroen C3 Picasso 1.2 litre petrol is a very practical family car, especially for smaller households. That little engine is actually a real plus point. It offers peppy performance around town and doesn’t feel overworked on motorway journeys, with plenty of low-rev pull for easy progress. The C3 Picasso is comfortable, too. Its ride is soft and the driving position is excellent; you sit quite high up, so get a clear view of the road ahead, helped by the wraparound windscreen and thin pillars. The entry-level Edition spec comes with plenty of kit, including 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, Bluetooth and rear parking sensors. If you need to transport your family on a limited budget, the characterful and nippy C3 Picasso should be at the top of your shortlist.”

This is the second consecutive year that the What Car? judging panel has recognised the family-friendly Citroen C3 Picasso PureTech 110 Edition as an “MPV Best Buy”, after a series of prior wins with different versions of the same car in the “MPV Best Buy for less than £16,000” category.

Citroen C3 Picasso PureTech 110 Edition is available from just £16,975 OTR.
