Going green seems so 1990s - car manufacturers are going blue. Now Citroen’s joined the fray with its BlueHDi engine Grand C4 Picasso. As before, the formula is a seven-seater variant of the smaller C4 Picasso, with unique styling, particularly at the rear with its horseshoe-shaped LED tail lights. Side-on, a contrasting colour frame wraps around the windows, while at the front the bumper’s shaped differently beneath those slit-like headlamps. Under the bonnet of top-of-the-range models is the 2.0-litre BlueHDi diesel engine. It’s a development of Citroen’s existing larger-capacity diesel, but with significant revisions to meet future EU emissions regulations. With 148bhp and 370Nm of torque at 2,000rpm it performs strongly, picking up pace to get up to motorway speed quickly, yet it cruises with hushed tones.
