Citroen C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso get mid-life refresh

Citroen has confirmed the prices and specifications for its refreshed C4 Picasso MPVs



Citroen has confirmed the prices and specification for the refreshed C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso MPVs ahead of their on-sale date of 1 September 2016.


The striking looking five-seat C4 Picasso and seven-seat Grand C4 Picasso both get a gentle going over to refine an already impressive package.


At the front, the chrome Citroen chevrons now extend around the LED daytime running lights in one continuous loop, the shape of the main headlights is tweaked and the single-framed grille has been split in two. There’s now a smaller grille in the middle of the car’s nose which contains the number plate, while a second air vent now stretches along the bottom of the bumper .


Changes to the rear are minimal and confined to new-look Citroen chevrons and 3D effect lights, although the changes do sharpen its appearance.

There are five engines variants to choose from, two petrol and three diesel. The new petrol engine is a 1.2-litre and is available with either 109bhp or 128bhp. The three diesel engines include two versions of a 1.6-litre tuned to 99bhp and 119bhp, plus a range-topping 2.0-litre that develops 148bhp. All of these come with either a five or six-speed manual gearbox, however an optional automatic is available for all but the least powerful engines.


Both the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso offer a choice of three specifications; Touch Edition, Feel and Flair.


Touch Edition comes with rear parking sensors, 16in alloys, cruise control, dual-zone air-conditioning, auto lights and windscreen wipers, and a panoramic sunroof.


Feel adds 17in alloys, a 12.0in panoramic high-definition display, sat nav, fog lights with cornering function, body coloured and electrically heated door mirrors, and front and rear parking sensors.



Range-topping Flair further adds 18in alloys, panoramic sunroof, reversing camera, park assist, hands-free tailgate opening (new for this model), keyless entry and blind spot monitoring.


There are seven exterior paint and four interior trim combinations to choose from.


New safety systems introduced include Active Lane Departure Warning and Active Blind Spot Monitoring.


Also, there’s now a hands-free system for the tailgate, where you wave your foot under the rear bumper to activate a sensor, which then opens the boot for you. Handy if your hands are full.


The new Citroen C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso go on sale from 1 September with prices ranging from £19,635 to £29,360.
