Citroën C4 Picasso wins 2015 “Best MPV” at Fleet World Honours

Article by Christian A., on May 19, 2015

The Citroën C4 Picasso has once again managed to get the “Best MPV” during the 2015 Fleet World Honours held in London. Citroën had previously won this award in 2014. The new award in fact named the C4 Picasso as joint winner with Grand C4 Picasso. Fleet World Honours judge Steve Moody commented that Citroën had been manufacturing excellent MPVs and it is the C4 Picasso that takes advantage of this fact.

The 5-seater C4 Picasso is both stylish and distinctive but remains practical. Moody adds that what made the Grand C4 Picasso win is that it does not stop in setting the standard of the class and is the only 7-seater MPV than has less than 100g/km of CO2 emission despite not having a hybrid technology.

Both the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso give buyers a wide range of equipment choices like an active radar-guided cruise control, dual-zone air conditioning, 7-inch Touch Drive interface with a 12-inch panoramic HD central display, and panoramic windscreen.

The C4 Picasso Exclusive+ has additional features like a front passenger that has a massage function and even electric leg rest. Director for Fleet & Used Vehicles of PSA Peugeot Citroën Martin Gurney commented that the company is thrilled this range managed to win the “Best MPV” award again.

Both the 5-seater and 7-seater C4 Picassos have gained recognition for its practical, stylish, and innovative design. As a result, sales of these models have been increasing. The two versions utilize the EMP2 platform which is crucial in the reduction of fuel consumption and lower emissions.

For the second year in succession, the Citroën C4 Picasso range has scooped the Fleet World Honours ‘Best MPV’ title. The award was presented to Citroën at the Fleet World Honours 2015 ceremony in London earlier today.

Fleet World Honours judge, Steve Moody, named the Citroën C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso as joint winners in the ‘Best MPV’ category, and commented; “Citroën has form as a manufacturer of excellent MPVs and the C4 Picasso takes full advantage of this. It manages to be infinitely practical, yet also distinctive and stylish, while the Grand C4 Picasso remains the only 7-seat MPV to emit less than 100g/km of CO2 without hybrid technology. Despite a multitude of strong contenders, the C4 Picasso continues to set the standard in its class.”

Both the 5-seat C4 Picasso and 7-seat Grand C4 Picasso are offered with a wide choice of equipment, including dual-zone air conditioning, panoramic windscreen, active radar-guided cruise control, 7-inch Touch Drive interface and a 12-inch panoramic HD central display. The range-topping C4 Picasso Exclusive+ even has a front passenger seat with a massage function and an electric leg rest, as standard.

Martin Gurney, PSA Peugeot Citroën UK’s Director – Fleet & Used Vehicles, remarked; “Citroën is delighted that the C4 Picasso range has won the Fleet World Honours ‘Best MPV’ award again this year. These successful 5 and 7-seat C4 Picassos are now widely recognised for their innovative, stylish and practical design, which is reflected in their growing sales. The EMP2 platform, which is common to both versions, plays a key role in the excellent fuel economy figures and CO2 emissions as low as 98g/km. All of which – combined with segment leading residual values – gives C4 Picasso significant fleet-appeal.”
