CitroŽn C3 Picasso
CitroŽn’s “magic box”

The new-generation C3 Picasso MPV will be making its public debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show and appearing in showrooms in first-quarter 2009.
The C3 Picasso bears all the hallmark creativity of CitroŽn and stands out with its bold styling and innovative architecture. Its cabin is astonishingly airy and spacious considering its compact exterior dimensions.
And the newcomer’s modular design is as intuitive as it is easy to use, making it tremendously versatile for all lifestyles and travelling needs. Powered by a range of efficient, economical and low-pollution engines, the C3 Picasso also brings pleasure-seeking drivers all the verve and agility they could wish for.
The C3 Picasso’s size, intelligent design and bubbly spirit make it more than a simple MPV; a more apt description would be “magic box”.
Produced at the Trnava plant in Slovakia to the tune of 110,000 units a year, it is set to become a key model in the segment, following in the footsteps of big sisters C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso, the best-selling MPVs in Europe in 2008.

Devilish charm
CitroŽn has skilfully played off the opposing qualities of round vs. square, strength vs. charm, modernity vs. retro, and large volume vs. flowing lines to design a vehicle with breakthrough styling and an appealing, impish personality.
The C3 Picasso’s pure and functional body styling expresses its fundamental purpose: passenger comfort at all times in all situations.

Small outside, big inside
With its innovative architecture, the C3 Picasso conjures a cavernous interior out of a compact exterior. Measuring 4.08 m long, 1.73 m wide and 1.62 m tall, it has a surprisingly short front end and a strictly vertical back. These original proportions offer all passengers an incredible amount of room. The boot is equally capacious. With 500 litres under the parcel shelf with all five seats in place, it sets a new standard in the segment.
