After the official reveal of the Citroen C3, it’s only a matter of time before the French company lifts the veil off its taller brother, the C3 Picasso.
Our skilled spies caught yet another prototype during its late development stage and this time we’re able to see more of the actual production model.
While the front end still remains under heavy wraps, Citroen’s characteristic design language with its multiple lighting elements cannot be hidden. As expected, the new baby Picasso will mimic the new C3’s styling at the front but the real reveal is the rear end which can be seen for the first time with its production lighting units.
Unlike its German sister car, the upcoming Opel Meriva which uses the same platform, the new C3 Picasso will not use horizontal taillights but a pair of square-ish elements, matching again the new C3’s design.
Both the new C3 Picasso and the new Opel Meriva are ditching the compact MPV bodystyle in favor of a more market-friendly crossover one. Their relation though is expected not to be transferred under the bonnet as PSA and Opel are keen to use their own powertrains.
The big reveal is expected to take place at the Paris Motor Show, so stay tuned.
