Shopping around for the best family car in SA is a tough task. Nearly every manufacturer has an SUV that offers space, practicality and ‘car like’ handling. In order to make the decision making process a little easier we’ve dug into the segment and pulled the best of the best at a reasonable budget of R350 000.
Citroen C4 Picasso e-HDI Intensive R345 900
Citroen has always been good at cramming features into its cars and being innovative with space. The new Picasso continues the trend with sliding rear seats and a huge boot – 537-litres. There’s underfloor storage bins in the back and tray tables as well. There’s also a handy 1.6-Litre turbodiesel engine under the bonnet with 85 kW and 270 Nm of torque. The headline figure though is the fuel economy number that claims 4L/100km and around 1 300km per tank of diesel.
