If you’re looking for a five-seater minivan with unconventional looks, Citroën is proposing the all-new C4 Picasso that is on sale now in the UK with on-the-road (OTR) prices starting from £17,500 and rising to £24,455.
While notably more compact (40mm or 1.57 inches shorter in length and 50mm or 1.96 inches lower in height) over its predecessor, the French firm says that, the new C4 Picasso actually offers improved space for both passengers and their luggage (an additional 40-litres to 537-litres with the rear seats pushed back, or up to 630-litres when pushed forward). It’s also up to 140kg (309 pounds) lighter, or about the same as the smaller C3 Picasso.
Citroen states that in the UK, it is targeting two main demographics, the first of which are style-conscious young families with one or two children, and the second group, older couples with grown-up children.
Riding on the French brand’s new EMP2 platform (Efficient Modular Platform 2), the C4 Picasso offers a choice of five powertrains including an 89hp (90PS) diesel with or without the micro-hybrid (e-HDi) system, a 113hp (114PS) diesel, and two gasoline units, the 118hp (120PS) VTi 120 and the 154hp (156PS) THP 155.
The most fuel efficient version is the e-HDi 90PS Airdream with the new ETG 6-speed automated gearbox that returns up to 74.3mpg UK with CO2 emissions of 98g/km.
Citroen has also revealed a longer, seven-passenger version of the car named the Grand C4 Picasso.
