Paris Preshow: 2011 Citroën Picasso and Grand Picasso

| |

These are the first official photos of Citroën's mildly refreshed Picasso 5-seater and Grand Picasso 7-seater MPVs, which are both due to make their first public appearance at this month's Paris Motor Show. The styling changes on the outside are rather minuscule and include the addition of the latest fad to hit the auto industry, LED daytime running lights up front, along with re-trimmed tail lamps, and for the Grand Picasso, a new rear hatch logo.

The new upholstery and color options for the interior, and the introduction of Citroën's optional micro-hybrid e-HDi fuel-saving technology, which features a combined alternator-starter to stop and start the engine, round off the changes for the 2011MY versions of the French firm's compact minivans, which will go on sale across Europe before the end of the year.
