C4 Picasso breaks cover

Citroen’s new C4 Picasso will be on show at the Paris Motor Show, which starts on Thursday (September 28 – October 15).

The C4 Picasso range offers four Euro IV compliant engines, which can return up to 50mpg on the combined cycle, CO2 emissions from 150g/km and top speeds of up to 121mph. Two 16V petrol engines, the 127bhp 1.8i and 143hp 2.0i are accompanied by 110bhp 1.6HDi and 138bhp 2.0HDi diesel engines, both fitted with a diesel particulate filter system.

The seven-seat MPV features an air quality sensor, in-built air freshener and four-zone air conditioning. The C4 Picasso is the first vehicle on the market to offer a parking space measurement system.

The driver presses the ‘P’ button on the steering wheel, flicks the relevant indicator and drives slowly along the row of parked vehicles. Two ultrasonic sensors at either end of the front bumper inform the driver whether parking is possible, difficult or inadvisable.

An electric parking brake and hill-start assist function are fitted to all models as standard.

The C4 Picasso will go on sale early next year.
