CITROËN’S C3 PICASSO NAMED ‘SCOTTISH MPV OF THE YEAR’
Citroën’s C3 Picasso has been named ‘Scottish MPV of the Year’ at the Scottish Car of the Year Awards 2009.
The innovative C3 Picasso beat off competition from the Kia Soul and Renault Grand Scenic to take home the prestigious accolade. The Citroën compact MPV impressed the judging panel with its design flare, practicality, performance and economy – but it was the overall vehicle quality that ultimately helped it win.
The Scottish MPV of the Year success sits alongside honours from Auto Express, Top Gear, What Diesel and Fleet World, meaning the C3 Picasso has now picked up five awards in just eight months since its launch.
Stephen Park, of the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers said; “The C3 Picasso’s success continues Citroën’s winning formula in this category. After all, the C4 Picasso picked up the same award in 2007. We were particularly impressed by the 1.6HDi engine that provides strong, economical power and good overall performance.”
The C3 Picasso has also been short-listed for European Car of the Year 2010.
