The start point for the best source of fleet information
Citroen may expect to sell the majority of C3 Picassos to fleet in VTR+ spec, but the Exclusive trim level brings extra practicality to the supermini MPV.
The biggest boost is the flat-folding front passenger seat that, when coupled with the totally flat-folding rear seats, extends the loading area to a full 2.41m.
Despite its incredibly versatile, practical and easy to use rear storage area, one thing the Picasso sadly lacks is out-of-sight cubbyholes. The Exclusive trim is an improvement to some extent thanks to the addition of under-floor storage in behind the front seats, but more in the cabin would be welcome.
The 1.6-litre petrol engine is good, and with emissions of 159g/km remains under the 160g/km capital allowances mark, but both the Nissan Note and Kia Soul rivals better the C3 Picasso's cost of 37.0p per mile, at 35.5 and 34.8ppm respectively.
Fuel economy, too, is respectable at 40.9mpg. However, with the 1.6 diesel 90PS and 110PS diesel engines claiming half as much again, with 60.1mpg for the lower powered version, it is hard to make a fleet case for the petrol.
