The Grand C4 Picasso is Citroën’s latest seven-seat MPV. Compared with its predecessor, it promises more space, better economy and lower emissions. Judging by our experience of the car at the 2014 Tow Car Awards, it’s also better to tow with. We’ve now had the chance to spend more time with the range-topping HDi 150 Exclusive+, testing it on the road and at the test track.

We’re expecting the Citroën to back up its impressive performance at the Tow Car Awards with another strong showing on familiar roads and our regular test track venue. Our wish list includes impressive economy, good performance, stability at speed and a practical cabin. Read on to find out what tow car potential this MPV truly has, according to our expert tester, David Motton.
