New Citroen Grand C4 Picasso revealed

Citroen has released first official pictures of the new Grand C4 Picasso seven-seater

These are the first official pictures of the new Citroen Grand C4 Picasso. Aimed at families who need something even more spacious than the standard C4 Picasso, the seven-seater goes on sale in the UK next January.

The Grand C4 Picasso marks itself out from the five-seat model thanks to a unique high-tech front end (including a chevron grille that completely surround the LED daytime running lights and a split lower grille) and innovative 'boomerang' LED lights at the rear, while the most efficient model in the range emits just 98g/km of CO2.

• Citroen C4 Picasso review

Based on the new EMP2 platform, which will underpin a range of future Citroen and Peugeot cars, including the upcoming Peugeot 308, the Grand C4 Picasso benefits from a 110kg weight reduction over its predecessor. Despite being the same dimensions as the car it replaces, engineers have been able to extend the wheelbase.

The result is a lighter and more airy cabin, plus easier access to the third row of seats. It also creates an extra 69-litres of useable load space compared with its predecessor, upping total luggage capacity to 645-litres with the third row of seats folded away and over 700-litres with the sliding second row of seats in their forward position.

In addition to the new EMP2 platform, Citroen has introduced a new engine to the Grand C4 Picasso range. The new BlueHDi 150 engine emits only 110g/km of CO2. Performance should be further improved by the new six-speed automated manual gearbox available with 1.6-litre e-HDi 90 and e-HDi 115 diesel engines.

Standard kit includes a panoramic windscreen, while a large glass roof is optional. A whole host of buttons and switches have been replaced with a 7-inch touchscreen and a 12-inch digital instrument panel. The seats are also asymmetrically designed which gives them the appearance of a sofa, while the seats in row two are all independent of one another.
