Living up to its illustrious name, the minivans truly have an artist’s soul in their styling, but this time around, the latest upgrade focuses on the extra layer of technology.
With the Jeep Cherokee and Nissan Juke, the C4 duet might be considered among the quirkiest vehicles in Europe and as such the first facelift since their launch around three years ago is very hard to distinguish at the design level. Now the C4 Picasso and bigger Grand C4 Picasso have received a modified front end. Additionally at the back we find a “3D effect” taillight design for all trims. The company is also delivering new rim designs for the 17-inch measure and three more body hues to increase customization possibilities. The highlights also include the addition of a two-tone roof for the C4 Picasso, while the larger Grand C4 Picasso gets a new Silver roof arch hue. Moving inside, the Picasso models now have the newest iteration of the 3D CITROËN Connect Nav connected navigation system, using a seven-inch touchscreen. It has been updated for increased responsiveness and also includes more connected services.
The owners also have the Hands-Free Tailgate or the safer adaptive cruise control (with stop function), speed limit sign recognition and recommendation, along with lane departure warning. Additional features include an active blind spot monitoring system, active safety brake, as well as driver attention alert. The 2016 C4 Picasso and C4 Grand Picasso will be available with the newly introduced PureTech 130 S&S EAT6 – a turbocharged, 130-hp 1.2-liter gasoline engine mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. European deliveries are set to begin this summer.
