New Citroen C3 has scooped the award for Supermini of the year, and Grand C4 Picasso has eclipsed its rivals to take the MPV of the year prize in the ContractHireAndLeasing.com awards 2016/2017.

The awards judges highlighted the new C3's 'reassuring' running costs and 'engaging handling' and described Grand c4 Picasso as simply 'one of the best MPV's available today'.

New Citroen C3; winner of supermini of the year award

New Citroën C3 has fought off some exceptionally strong B-segment competition to win Best Supermini in the Contract Hire and Leasing.com Car of the Year Awards 2016/2017, with New Citroën Grand C4 Picasso also sweeping the competition aside to take the Best MPV title.

The Contract Hire and Leasing.com judges said;

Reassuring running costs, engaging handling, distinctive looks, and a wide variety of personalisation options make the C3 a fun lease.

The judges continued;

With the same styling cues of the C4 Cactus, it gets a much more inspired look than its forebear. But those individualistic air bumps aren’t the only reason it wins our supermini of the year award. The C3’s update extends well beyond the bodywork, thanks to an interior that features possibly the comfiest seats ever to grace a small car. Its four doors and 300-litre boot means practicality is just as high on the priority list as comfort. too.

Citroën’s fun New C3 includes the world’s first fully integrated dashcam, ConnectedCAM Citroën™. The forward facing camera, positioned just behind the rear-view mirror, adds both fun and function to the car. The driver can take pictures in complete safety, and record or share video via their social media channels. The camera can also record vital “before and after” footage in the event of an accident. In addition, New C3’s range of efficient PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel engines all feature low emissions and low fuel consumption, contributing to low overall running costs.Award winning Citroen Grand C4 Picasso MPV car in whiteThe Grand C4 Picasso is no stranger to awards ceremonies, its strengths as a stylish and spacious MPV having earned it a long list of awards since it was originally launched in 2014.

The Contract Hire and Leasing.com judges praised New Grand C4 Picasso, describing Citroën’s family seven-seater as;

One of the best MPVs available today, the Grand C4 Picasso majors on  style.

They went on to say;

In the British lexicon, the name Picasso is now probably more associated with MPVs than it is with surrealist paintings, and the updated Grand C4 Picasso ensures this trend continues. This behemoth seven-seater gets a flexibility that makes it the perfect family load-lugger.

Huge infotainment and driver info screens now dominate the dashboard, which along with the spaceship looks give the Grand Picasso a futuristic flavour. Some people carriers can be rather drab, but not this one. The Grand Picasso doesn’t try and apologise for what it is, and that’s why it’s a winner.

Available since 3 January 2017, New Citroën C3 has already started racking up awards, having been honoured with the “Best Urbanite” title in BBC TopGear Magazine’s ‘Best Cars in the World’ issue.

The Best MPV award from Contract Hire and Leasing.com is the second award that New Grand C4 Picasso has earned already for 2017, following the Best Seven-Seater prize in the Carbuyer Best Car Awards.
