Citroen C4 Engine

The Citroën C4 Picasso is a range of two compact MPVs, a five-seater and a seven-seater (Grand C4 Picasso). It has added a cleaner, leaner and more powerful diesel engine to its updated Picasso MPV line-up.

The best Picassos come with HDi diesel engines, but these suffer problems with the injection system, as well as the ECU. They can be frustrating to put right, so make sure you take a test drive to check everything is working properly.

About £2,500 will bag you an early petrol Picasso, but it will have covered 100,000 miles, so spend closer to £5,000 for a 50,000 mile car. That should get you a 52 plate 1.8 litre with 45,000 miles on the clock. A 2.0 litre petrol 52 car with the same mileage is about £6,300. The best Picassos have the 1.6-litre HDi diesel, and start from £7,000.

So what’s it like to drive?

There’s a choice of two petrol and two diesel models and we drove both diesels and one of the petrols. All three were deceptively quiet, it was a shock to see the speedometer had crept above 60mph when noise levels led us to believe we were going much slower. It certainly nips along quite easily, though initial acceleration (0-62mph times vary between and 11.5 and 13.4 seconds) did feel a little sluggish.

Citroen C4 PicassoThe driving position is good and the ride smooth. It wallows a little in corners, but this is an MPV and not a sports car. The only other criticism we have from three half-hour drives is a bright day made the speedometer and rev counter hard to read. Fuel economy is good with the petrol models returning 46 mpg and the diesels upping that to 55 mpg.

Citroen expects a large proportion of C4 Picassos to be sold with one of the firm’s HDi diesel engines. As such, we tested the 2.0 litre HDi, which is smooth and quiet on start-up, and certainly provides enough pace on the move. Power delivery is linear, too, but it’s lethargic at times. This is down to the Electronic Gearbox System (EGS), which, for all Citroen’s talk of convenience, can be jerky at times. The set-up is no match for a manual. More generally, the engine is happiest when it’s not being rushed, and this is reflected in the relaxed driving experience. While the Citroen isn’t particularly thrilling, it’s safe and confident in corners. The steering is responsive as well, and delivers a decent amount of feel. Unfortunately, the brakes are extremely grabby, and while there’s a dash-mounted electronic parking brake, the switch for this is a stretch. Ride quality is first rate, however – and a self-levelling system on certain models adds to the car’s composure when laden.

What to look for

Don’t buy the 2.0 HDi, as the 1.6 HDi offers superior power and economy, and it’s worth the extra. There are lots of petrol Picassos available, but they can be slow, so make sure there’s enough performance on tap for your liking before taking the plunge.

There are a few words in the language of auto repair that make car owners want to crawl back into bed, and “engine” is at the top of the list. There’s something about that mysterious lump underneath your hood that incites fear. Unfortunately, most repair shops know this, and will take advantage of the situation by reaching deep into your pocket when it comes to repairs.

Your engine is a remarkable contraption. Somehow it shifts your car, knowing how fast you need to go and how quickly you need to get there. What goes on inside is a mystery to most. Unless your thirst for automotive knowledge borders on compulsive, you can leave it a mystery.

Citroen C4 Engine problems fall into two very similar categories:

  • Won’t go.
  • Won’t go smoothly

Most C4 engine problems can’t be fixed by the average do-it-yourself. There are just too many specialized tools and pieces of equipment you’ll need, and buying this expensive gear just to screw up your first attemp at fixing the thing just doesn’t make too much sense.
