Next Citroen C3 Picasso Spotted With Partially Exposed Front-End

While we didn’t get to see Citroen’s 2017 C3 Picasso at this year’s Paris Auto Show, our spy photographers managed to capture the partially exposed front end of a covered up, but camouflage-free model.

As you may know, the next C3 Picasso will share its underpinnings with the Opel Meriva, though thanks to these new images, we can clearly see just how different the two cars will be, at least when viewed from the front.

There are other slightly more visible design cues this time around as well – such as the rear lights which we can finally see have more of a square shape as opposed to the Meriva’s horizontal configuration, which was believed to be utilized on the C3 Picasso as well until recently.

While ditching its small-MPV body style for more of a crossover-like appearance, the C3 Picasso still has quite a few C3 supermini cues to it, though at this point it’s unclear it if will receive the company’s signature airbump panels.

Inside, the same tech present on the C3 could make its way into the C3 Picasso as well. This means a 3D sat-nav system with real-time traffic info, a rearview camera, SOS live assistance, blind spot warning, hill start assist and even driver fatigue warning.

As for engines, we’re expecting some downsized turbocharged petrol units, as well as some BlueHDI diesel ones. Again, looking at the all-new C3, it comes with three-cylinder PureTech petrol engines, rated at 68 PS, 82 PS and 110 PS, as well as two versions of the previously mentioned 1.6-liter BlueHDI engine, rated at 75 PS and 100 PS. It’s quite possible some of them will be available on the C3 Picasso too, once it finally comes out.
