Summary


No longer in production, the Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer was a rarity on the UK car market – a seven-seat MPV. Originally known as the Grand C4 Picasso, this model ultimately dates back to 2013.

The seven-seater Grand C4 SpaceTourer was based on the smaller five-seat C4 SpaceTourer model, which is also no longer on sale in the UK.

Despite its age, the car still sold in sufficient numbers up until it was finally discontinued in 2022, and continued to win awards as well. The people carrier received its final update in October 2021, though it was mostly about ‘streamlining’ the trim choices, with either a petrol or diesel engine each of 130hp.

Reviewers tended to like the Grand C4 SpaceTourer. “It certainly ticks plenty of family-friendly boxes,” said What Car?, adding that it could be a five-seater with lots of luggage space or, thanks to two pop-out seats, a people carrier for seven adults.

The body shape earned praise too; “With modern, stylish looks, it shows an MPV doesn’t have to be boring,” said Carbuyer.   

Most versions came well equipped and reviewers liked the tech on offer. But they were more critical of some of the quality – Autocar commented that “it still isn’t the last word on quality of fit and finish and some secondary systems don’t work as well as they should,” though adding “for the price it offers up a great interior.”

Eurekar dubbed the Grand C4 SpaceTourer “incredibly versatile” and “proof that there is still room in the market for a well thought-out MPV,” while Autocar summed up the general view by saying the car will “sell to the mainstream and those attracted by its eccentric sense of boldness.”

As of April 2024, the Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer holds a Used Car Expert Rating of C, with a score of 64%. It gets good grades for its low running costs, low CO2 emissions. However, its reliability score and media reviews are only average, while its safety score is poor

Notes on safety rating

The Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer was originally crash tested by Euro NCAP back in 2013 and awarded a five-star rating. It was then known as the Grand C4 Picasso, and the score applies to both the smaller C4 Picasso/SpaceTourer and larger Grand C4 Picasso/SpaceTourer

However, this rating expired in January 2020 and is no longer valid as the car no longer meets the standards required for such a rating. This is normal practice, as Euro NCAP reviews its ratings on most cars annually with most ratings expiring after about six or seven years.

If you are comparing a used Grand C4 SpaceTourer or Picasso to vehicles of similar age, whose ratings will have probably also expired, its safety rating score is still useful.

Eco rating


Independent economy and emissions ratings from Green NCAP

No eco rating

The Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer was not lab tested by Green NCAP. Given that it’s production cycle is at an end, the chances of it happening now are about zero.
