The Citroen C4 MPV models will no longer wear the Picasso badge moving forward, instead being referred to as Spacetourer models.
Citroen had used the Picasso name on the five- and seven-seat C4 MPVs since 2006 but the name reportedly created an unwanted “break between mid and large-sized MPVs,” a company spokesman told Autocar.
As such, the latest C4 models are now coined the C4 Spacetourer and Grand C4 Spacetourer, bringing them in line with the nine-seat Citroen Spacetourer.
According to the French automaker, the name change will give customers a better understanding of the relationship between the three Spacetourer models on sale.
The C4 models most recently underwent changes back in 2016, adopting fresh interior and exterior design cues. Depending on the market, a selection of different engines are on offer, including a 1.2-liter PureTech petrol engine in 108 hp and 128 hp guises.
Last year, Citroen sold almost 100,000 C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso models in Europe alone, proving the vehicle’s continued popularity.
