Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer

(2013 - present)

    Summary


    The Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer is today a rarity on the UK car market – a seven-seat MPV. It’s also quite old, originally known as the Grand C4 Picasso and with the current model ultimately dating back to 2013.

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

    Despite its age, the car still sells in sufficient numbers to warrant its continued existence, and it continues to win awards as well. As of October 2021 the model getting another minor update, though it’s mostly about ‘streamlining’ the trim choices, with either a petrol or diesel engine each of 130hp.

    Reviewers tend to like the Grand C4 SpaceTourer. “It certainly ticks plenty of family-friendly boxes,” says What Car?, adding that it can 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 earns praise too; “With modern, stylish looks, it shows an MPV doesn’t have to be boring,” says Carbuyer.   

    Most versions come well equipped and reviewers like the tech on offer. But they are more critical of some of the quality, Autocar commenting 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 dubs the Grand C4 SpaceTourer “incredibly versatile” and “proof that there is still room in the market for a well thought-out MPV,” while Autocar sums up the general view by saying the car will “sell to the mainstream and those attracted by its eccentric sense of boldness.”

    As of June 2022, the Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer holds an Expert Rating of 72% based on 19 different reviews.

    In late April 2022, Citroën announced that the Grand C4 SpaceTourer will end production in July, with no replacement model forthcoming.

    Safety rating


    No safety rating

    The Citroën C4 SpaceTourer was originally crash tested by Euro NCAP back in 2013 (when it was known as the Grand C4 Picasso) and awarded a five-star rating, with the same rating applying to the larger Grand C4 Picasso.

    However, this rating expired in January 2020 and is no longer valid as the car no longer meets the standards required for such a rating.

    Eco rating


    No eco rating

    The Citroën Grand C4 SpaceTourer has not been lab tested by Green NCAP. Given that it’s about to end production, the chances of it happening now are about zero.
