Citroen’s new C4 SpaceTourer models won’t let you explore ‘the final frontier’, but they do promise to be better than past models, and all with a starting price of £21,125 ($29,067) in the United Kingdom.
Replacing the old Picasso nomenclature, the base Citroen C4 SpaceTourer is the 110PS (108hp / 81kW) PureTech model, paired to a six-speed manual gearbox.
The most affordable diesel starts from £22,160 ($30,491), and depending on the selected grade, the minivan goes all the way up to £29,640 ($40,783) in 150PS (148hp / 110kW) diesel form, equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Its five-door sibling, on the other hand, the Citroen Grand C4 SpaceTourer, has a starting price of £23,425 ($32,232) in 130PS (128hp / 95kW) PureTech flavor, with a stick shift, whereas the range-topping model starts at £31,340 ($43,122).
Both C4 SpaceTourers are built on the EMP2 platform, shared with a multitude of vehicles made by PSA, including the Peugeot 5008 and all-new 508 mid-size sedan. The architecture is the foundation stone of the original SpaceTourer as well, which can be ordered with up to nine seats.
Features such as Active Safety Brake, Driver Attention Alert and Speed Sign Recognition and Recommendation are offered with the new ‘Safety Pack’, which is standard on all Flair versions.
The automaker says that in a month’s time, the C4 SpaceTourer and Grand C4 SpaceTourer will welcome a new BlueHDi 160PS (158hp / 118kW) diesel engine, mated to a new eight-speed automatic gearbox.
