New 2017 Citroen C4 Picasso on sale next month

Updated C4 and Grand C4 Picasso on sale 1st September from £19,635, with tweaked looks and extra kit

Citroen's updated C4 Picasso range will go on sale at the end of the month priced from £19,635. The MPV receives revised styling and updated technology to take on the forthcoming Renault Scenic

Both the five-seat C4 Picasso and seven-seat Grand C4 Picasso - which we've just driven - have crept up in price to accommodate the new spec, with the starting price for both £1,140 and £1,740 more respectively.

Both cars feature a new front bumper, with prominent C-shaped fog light surrounds and a wider grille, as well as chrome strips that extend the Citroen chevrons even further outwards than before. At the back there's new '3D-effect' LED taillights and a new Citroen badge.

The C4 Picasso gets a new black two-tone roof colour option as well, while the Grand Picasso seven-seater also has a new silver option for the roof bars. The five-seat model also gets the option of 'Mamba' 17-inch alloy wheels, and there are some new finishes for other alloys in the range as well. New paint colours include Lazuli Blue, Soft Sand and Cumulus Grey.

New interior options for the Picasso range include blue cloth upholstery, an 'extra-support' headrest, a perfume dispenser, Nappa leather upholstery in black and amber, LED reading lights and rear sunblinds. There's also Citroen's latest sat-nav and infotainment system on board, plus some new safety kit.

That extra safety equipment includes a tiredness warning system, speed limit recognition, a driver attention alert, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, active cruise control and auto city braking. 

There are some new powertrain options for both cars too, with the 6-speed automatic gearbox now available on the 128bhp PureTech petrol model, which returns 55.4mpg and emits 115g/km of CO2. There's also the option of a 108bhp petrol engine with a 6-speed manual gearbox in the five-seat C4 Picasso model only.
