Diesel 7-Seater MPVs
The Grand Scenic looks great, but it can frustrate too with everything controlled through the central touchscreen. The hybrid assist system offers excellent official fuel economy but you do have to drive carefully to get the best out of it.
Citroen C4 Grand Picasso 74.3 mpg
The new Citroen C4 Grand Picasso is lighter, more spacious, has more individual styling, and, with 74.3mpg, is more efficient.
The Grand Scenic is a good-looking MPV which is ideal if you occasionally need to carry 7 people or you have lots of kids. It is a shame the sharp looks come at the expense of usability with the fiddly touchscreen being a particularly annoying example. At least the fuel economy on offer is outstanding, helped by standard stop/start.
