Pricewatch: Citroën C4 Picasso v Renault Scenic

Due to the large numbers sold into ‘high-discount’ fleets like Motability and the large money-off retail deals, Citroën’s original Picasso has always suffered from poor residuals.

However, the stylish new C4 Picasso has bucked the trend of the old, and still selling, version.

CAP’s three-year/60,000-mile RV predictions put it at the top end of the mini MPV market. A combination of its fleet-friendly VTR Plus spec, the old Picasso taking up the low cost business and its stylish looks have given the C4 Picasso a strong footing for fleet success.
