Automaker Citroen has been handed the MPV of the Year award from What Car? for the second year running.
The manufacturer’s seven-seat Grand C4 Picasso vehicle finished ahead of rival the Ford S-Max to gain the prize.
Group editor for the magazine Steve Fowler commented that the firm "clearly did its homework" when developing the model.
Indeed, it has been rewarded give Euro NCAP stars, making it one of the safest MPVs on the market.
Mr Fowler added: "It fits the bill perfectly for modern families. It’s innovative, easy to use, great to be in and good value – it’ll keep every member of the family happy."
Citroen states that the model sold close to 20,000 vehicles in the UK and more than 200,000 units worldwide over its first full year on the market.
Citroen has had to withdraw an advert from an advertisement featuring former Chinese leader Mao Zedong scowling at a hatchback vehicle.
