Citroen Reveals the Latest C4 Grand Picasso
|   Sunday, July 14, 2013
Citroen has revealed the latest C4 Grand Picasso which is based on the all new EMP2 platform designed by the Citroen Peugeot partnership. The C4 Picasso is expected to be unveiled this year while then first batch will go on sale fall 2014. This is a five seated vehicle and like its predecessor, Citroen will market it for the family transport based market segment.

Expected to sport a base price of £19,000, the C4 Grand Picasso is basically of the same dimensions as that of its predecessor.
However, the EMP2 platform is completely new and this is something to look forward to. The wheel base of the C4 Grand Picasso has been increased by 11 cm which enhances the interior capacity of this five seated vehicle. Citroen is offering a seven seated version although this model will lack boot space.

The suspension has been enhanced and this improves general comfort and handling of the vehicle. The C4 Grand Picasso is 110 kg lighter than its predecessor and this is primarily due to the new steel and aluminum composed rear floor material. Citroen is offering three engine options on the C4 Grand Picasso which is rumored to include one petrol model as well.
The diesel engines are however more fuel efficient and eco friendly and should not be as polluting as the current batch of engines powering the lot. Experts believe that the entry level 90 eHDI Air dream will be the best selling model of the lot due to its practical figures along with practical space and decent performance. Average fuel efficiency figures of 74.3 MPG along with 98 g/km of CO2 are displaced by this engine.

The range topping Blue HDI engine is Euro6 compliant and is fitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction technology, which aims at reducing the general NOx figures. This engine option emits 110 g/km of CO2 and is more powerful than the base petrol model. Citroen has mated the current engine lot to the clutch less six speed manual transmission system with an optional six speed automatic transmission.

The exterior is quite similar to the current generation and LED Daytime Running Lights have been added to enhance the way this car looks. Cabin space is also increased and this enhances the luggage carrying capacity of the car while enhancing the general head and leg room. The dash board has been refurbished and this makes the new interior visually appealing than the current generation. A 12 inch LCD screen with updated audio has also been installed.

Safety measures abound in the C4 Grand Picasso and some of the standard measures include a new tail gate, wider radar along with an advanced collision detection system. Drafting behind vehicles more than 18 MPH will not cause a general red light flashing to warn the driver of the impending disaster. The trim level is renewed and this enhances the visual aesthetics of the interior. Citroen has launched this vehicle aimed at the price sensitive European family segment and this vehicle proves to be quite a potential ride.
