New C3 and Grand C4 Picasso gain more awards

New Citroen C3 has fought off all competition to win Best Supermini in the Contract Hire and Leasing.com Car of the Year Awards 2016/2017, with New Citroen Grand C4 Picasso also sweeping the competition aside to take the Best MPV title.

The Contract Hire and Leasing.com judges said: “Reassuring running costs, engaging handling, distinctive looks, and a wide variety of personalisation options make the C3 a fun lease.

“The C3’s update extends well beyond the bodywork, thanks to an interior that features possibly the comfiest seats ever to grace a small car. Its four doors and 300-litre boot mean practicality is just as high on the priority list as comfort, too.”

New C3’s range of efficient PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines all feature low emissions and low fuel consumption, contributing to low overall running costs.

Its strengths as a stylish and spacious MPV having earned the Grand C4 Picasso a long list of awards since it was originally launched in 2014.

The Contract Hire and Leasing.com judges praised New Grand C4 Picasso, describing Citroen’s family seven-seater as: “This seven-seater gets a flexibility that makes it the perfect family load-lugger. Huge infotainment and driver info screens now dominate the dashboard, which along with the spaceship looks give the Grand Picasso a futuristic flavour. Some people carriers can be rather drab, but not this one. The Grand Picasso doesn’t try and apologise for what it is, and that’s why it’s a winner.”
