already achieved undisputed success since their respective launches in
2006 and 2007* - with nearly 650,000 vehicles sold globally and 63,000

and Grand C4 Picasso will feature new styling, enhanced levels of
equipment and engine upgrades from October 2010.
Both C4 Picasso
ranges will also feature models specified with CitroŽn’s new e-HDi

emissions. This will be the very first time that e-HDi equipped models
will be available in the UK.
The new C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show later this month.
NEW ELEGANT EXTERIOR DESIGN
a fresh, new and even more elegant exterior design - as well as
exceptionally bright and airy cabins, thanks to the stunning wide-angle
panoramic windscreen - the award-winning range of compact MPVs boasts
new styling elements including CitroŽn’s new chevron design on the
front grille and tailgate; a new front bumper; new headlights and rear
light clusters; and - on VTR+ and Exclusive models - a distinctive
front LED light signature.
The best-selling VTR+ models also now
feature stylish chrome side window sills and a chrome rear bumper
strip, making them as stylish as they are versatile.
The C4 Picasso Exclusive’s prestigious appearance can be enhanced even
further thanks to a new and unique ‘Black Top’ option. Available in
conjunction with 6 body colours, this option means the roof and
A-pillars are painted with a luxuriously glossy Onyx black. The
exterior door handles, door mirrors and alloy wheel centre caps also
receive a glossy black finish to put the final touches to what is a
very premium look.

6-speed manual gearbox, which delivers driving pleasure and combined
cycle fuel economy of 49.6mpg. A refined 2.0HDi 160hp with a 6-speed
