Citroen revised the current generation C4 Picasso and its bigger brother, the Grand C4 Picasso. On sale starting this September the 1st, the new C4 Picasso starts at £19,635 and the Grand Mmodel at £21,935.
Available in three trim levels; Touch Edition, Feel and Flair, New C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso both feature restyled exterior faces, a host of new interior trims, new engines, the latest generation connectivity and driver assistance technology.
New C4 Picasso and New Grand C4 Picasso share a more dynamic front end, keeping the three-tiered light signature at the front, which is synonymous with Citroën’s contemporary design language. The daytime running lights are intensified with a chrome trim, whilst the wider, lower front bumper and gloss black central moulding gives both cars a stylish, yet more purposeful look.
Two new body paint colours are available to refresh the colour palette; Lazuli Blue and Soft Sand. Other changes on the New C4 Picasso include the Mamba 17-inch diamond-finish alloy wheels standard on the Feel trim level, whilst New Grand C4 Picasso features new integrated roof bars and Aluminium side profile on the Flair trim level.
New C4 Picasso range features an upgraded 3D Citroen Connect Nav system, with touch screen technology for the first time, and enables taps and gestures to be more responsive. It also recognises multiple contact points, allowing for a wider range of gestures (e.g. pinch zoom). TomTom mapping data provides real-time traffic information and alternative route suggestions as well as local weather forecasts, display of car parks and petrol stations with prices and local point-of-interest searches via the Internet. For simplicity and safety, voice recognition is now available for interaction with the navigation, telephone and media functions.
From launch, two new petrol powertrains will be available, alongside the PureTech 130 S&S 6 speed manual. The PureTech 130 hp automatic will be available on the Feel and Flair versions, whilst the PureTech 110 hp 6 speed manual will be available on the New C4 Picasso Touch edition.
Two new optional driver assistance packages are available, which introduce Citroën first active safety systems such as Active Lane Departure Warning and Active Blind Spot Monitoring.
