Citroen CEO Frederic Banzet is confident that the new C4 Picasso will outsell its rivals and become the best-seller in the compact minivan segment in Europe.
“The C4 Picasso offers novel features not found in other minivans,” Banzet said at the vehicle’s press launch here.
Among the latest technological features the C4 Picasso is fitted with the 360 Vision, which has four cameras that offer different views around the vehicle to help parking. The model also features an easy-to-use infotainment system with two separate dashboard screens.
One of the screens is a 12-inch console which displays vehicle-related and navigation information, but also photos uploaded from a USB key, while the other is a 7-inch touchpad screen which adjusts air conditioning and heat, telephone and audio functions. The touchpad can also be used a second screen for navigation.
The latest version C4 Picasso is 140 kg lighter compared with its processor, mainly due to the aluminum platform, composite rear floor and high-strength steel. The C4 Picasso is on the fifth place in the compact minivan sales in Europe. The model comes with two diesel engines and two gasoline engines. The model with the highest fuel-efficiency is a diesel mated to the new six-speed clutches gearbox and offers CO2 emissions of 98 grams per kilometer.
