Citroen Grand C4 Picasso 2014 debuts at Frankfurt
The seven-seat Citroen Grand C4 Picasso has been revealed at the Frankfurt show
The new Citroen Grand C4 Picasso has been revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show 2013, with CO2 emissions as low as 98g/km and space for seven seats. Thisis the first time we've seen the Grand C4 Picasso in public.
The car follows the design styles found in the rest of the modern Citoren range, with the thin front lights and a large badge that extends from the centre to form a thin grille. A new roof bar design extends to the rear, with distinctive LED taillights completing the new look.
The new Citroen Grand C4 Picasso’s wheelbase is a bit longer than its predecessor but is actually 110kg lighter and the total length of the car is the same as before. That means the interior is roomier, with 69 litres of extra luggage space and over 700 litres with the rear seats pushed forward. Thanks to having lots of large windows, the inside of the Grand C4 Picasso is lighter and airier than before, too.
The smallest engine available, the 91bhp e-HDi 90 1.6-litre diesel, can manage 74.3mpg and emits just 98g/km of CO2. A new engine, the BlueHDi 150, has been added to the range that emits 110g/km but is a bit more powerful than the 91bhp engine. Finally the e-HDi 115, which emits 104g/km and has economy of 70.6mpg, will also be available.
All models come with alloy wheels and standard equipment will include a panoramic windscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, air-conditioning and a touchscreen display. Optional extras include a 360-degree parking camera, massage front seats and a parking assist system.
Safety features on the new Grand C4 Picasso include adaptive cruise control which changes your speed based on the road ahead, a collision detection system, lane departure and blind spot warnings, and a traction control system with different settings for varying road conditions.
The new 2013 Citroen Grand C4 Picasso goes on sale in January 2014, and although no prices have been announced we expect it to cost around £19,000 – around £1,500 more than the five-seat Citroen C4 Picasso.
