The C4 Picasso

 

C4 PICASSO 

The first “visiospace”

SUMMARY

CitroŽn will be premiering the C4 Picasso – its new compact MPV – at the 2006 Paris Motor Show. Set to reach showrooms in France from October 2006, the new vehicle will arrive in most other European countries during the last quarter of the year.

With the C4 Picasso and the Xsara Picasso, a vehicle that continues to pursue a successful market career, CitroŽn now offers two MPVs that are quite distinct in terms of both styling and features.

With its extensive glass area and vast modular cabin, the C4 Picasso becomes the first “visiospace”.

The unique styling, driveability and original features of the C4 Picasso contribute to a comfortable and highly enjoyable ride. This new MPV can carry up to seven people in comfort. All vehicle functions have been designed to ensure an easy, pleasant and relaxed journey. 

  • A wide-angle panoramic windscreen for outstanding visibility and clarity.

  • A front compartment of uncluttered design, with an innovative driving position and the new 6-speed electronic gearbox system.

  • Class-beating interior space and boot volume.

  • Original seat-folding functions for quick and easy reconfiguration.

  • High standards of interior comfort for all passengers, with generous space and outstanding thermal, acoustic and odour-exclusion comfort.

  • Remarkable suspension comfort with the pneumatic rear suspension.

  • An easier, safer drive, with driving aids that are new to or rarely seen in the compact MPV segment.

Right from the first level of trim, the C4 Picasso boasts new features for on-board comfort, along with driving aids and safety functions. Close attention has also been paid to the perceived quality of the passenger compartment. The prestige interior materials are pleasant to touch; the chrome and gloss black are pleasant on the eye; the paintwork is smooth; and the grain of the dashboard and door panels is exceptionally fine.

Four responsive, high-performance engines are available from launch, two petrol: the 1.8i 16V and 2.0i 16V developing 127 bhp and 143 bhp DIN, and two diesel: the HDi 110 DPFS and HDi 138 DPFS. All engines meet Euro IV standards, and the two diesel units are equipped with a particulate filter as standard. Depending on the market, the engines are available with a wide choice of transmissions: manual, automatic or the new 6-speed electronic gearbox system.

With its strong personality, its dimensions (4.59 m long, 1.83 m wide and 1.66 m high) and its attractive features, the C4 Picasso is a natural extension to CitroŽn's MPV range. The line-up now comprises three distinct and complementary vehicles: the compact Xsara Picasso and C4 Picasso, and a large MPV, the C8.

The C4 Picasso is produced at the Vigo plant in Spain.
