The “Picasso” nameplate has been around since 1999 and, until now, has sold close to 3 million units, proving to be a success for Citroen. Now the French carmaker has revealed a new concept for a compact MPV that will debut at the Geneva Auto Show next month.
Named Technospace, it foreshadows the shape of things to come for the new C4 Picasso that will be launched in the second half of the year; or shall we say reveals, as the production car looks identical to the concept in every detail save for the wheels.
How do we know? Well, Citroen has been circulating several undisguised cars around France these past few days, and they have been caught on camera…
Based on the Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2), the concept is 4.43 long, 1.83 m wide and 1.61 m high. Citroen claims that it “ushers in a new era” due to its record CO2 emissions of just 98 g/km and its comfort-enhancing technologies that include a full-touch driver’s interface with a 12-inch HD screen.
