The Car That Parks Itself

The Mellow family recently got the chance to test drive the new Citroen C4 Picasso.  While I have a comprehensive family car review of all the family-friendly features that the new C4 has to offer over on , I really wanted to rave to you here about the number one feature on the Citroen C4... it is a car that parks itself! Magic.

The thought of a self-parking car absolutely fascinated me.  I'm notoriously bad at parking and when I found out that Citroen were asking us to perform a parking exercise, I began to get worried!  But the magic of the Citroen 360 degree Park-Assist technology (available as an option on the new C4 Picasso) is that you don't have to stress about getting the right angle when you parallel park, or about approaching a parking bay from the correct angle; the car does that for you!  Genius.  All you have to do is to apply the gas or the brake (and the parking sensors help you make the decision when to brake).

The C4 is packed full of other awesome tech too - self-tightening belts to warn you of danger, blind-spot monitoring, sensors to spot whether you drift off into another lane, self-managing cruise-control and also (and this is a winner for most families) three full-sized adult seats in the back, each with ISOFIX fittings including the top-tether anchor point in the boot.  The boot itself is the largest for a car of this class so has plenty of room for pushchairs.
