Citroen C3 Picasso deals: Car deal of the week

Save £2,000 on a brand-new Citroen C3 Picasso MPV, with prices from £10,995

You can now save £2,000 off the price of a practical Citroen C3 Picasso mini-MPV, with prices now starting from as little as £10,995.

The basic 1.4-litre VTi petrol engine will do 0-62mph in 12.2 seconds and return almost 45mpg. Entry-level VT models sit in insurance group 10, so premiums should be fairly affordable, too.

However, if budget allows, we’d stretch to the economical 1.6-litre HDi diesel – now available from £13,965 – which will do 68.9mpg and emit just 108g/km of CO2. On paper it is slower from 0-62mph, but in reality it feels just as fast, thanks to the bulk of the C3’s power available from very low revs.

Standard equipment across the range is generous, with all models featuring iPod connectivity, a CD player and electric door mirrors. However, basic VT model miss out on air-conditioning, electronic stability control and cruise control – though all of these can be added as optional extras.

Mid-spec VTR+ spec cars are better equipped, with kit including Bluetooth connectivity for your mobile phone, front fog lights, LED daytime running lights and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Upgrade again to the Citroen C3 Picasso Selection model and you’ll benefit from larger alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof and the ‘Black Pack’, which adds black detailing to the exterior and wheels.

Top-of-the-range Exclusive models are the most generously equipped, but cost more as a result. The list of standard kit includes heated door mirrors, electric rear windows, rear parking sensors and automatic headlights. Leather seats, sat-nav and a reversing camera are all included on the options list.

But not only does the Citroen C3 Picasso come loaded with standard equipment, it’s also a useful family car. There’s room inside for five people and the boot is a decent 385 litres, which is bigger than the Ford B-MAX (318 litres) and the Fiat 500L (343 litres). Fold the seats flat and the van-like body reveals a decent amount of space for transporting bulkier items.
