In 2013, Citroën decided to take a step forward and completely renew its two-model family. Since then the station wagons of the French house have become benchmarks in the segment, despite the arrival or renewal of their rivals. Now comes the update for both units, the Citroën C4 Picasso 2016 and the Citroën Grand C4 Picasso 2016, with developments of design and technology.
The cosmetic changes front are applied to the two models
three years Ago, Citroën broke the mold for minivans. Practical models but a little showy. However the French were working on the aesthetic issue to achieve a MPV very attractive, different from anything seen previously. Today, with the changes applied, we still have that spirit, even though updated various elements to continue to attract more buyers.
In the front we see as holding the largest part of the structure. The headlights divided still are there, although the entire lower area of the bumper is renewed. Instead of two grills, united we find ourselves with two separate openings, losing also the scheme of double trapeze. A change that gives you a little more of a dynamic character. Also added chrome details to enhance the refinement and elegance.
If you move along in the body-we did not find any significant change, except for the tires. New designs come into play, with sizes that vary between 16 and 18 inches. In the rear we find the same style that we already knew, although Citroën has renewed the design of the optical front, that is not the way. For everything else, all in the Citroën C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso will remain the same.
In terms of its interior, both models remain exactly the same in terms of their design scheme. serial all will continue to include the double-screen system. The top reports on everything related to driving, while the bottom will be able to accommodate more equipment, such as the browser, the communication system, or sound equipment. In the finishes highest of the range, the upper screen will also be able to inform about these issues, duplicating the content.
The rear lights have changed their design, which does not form
mpvs are known for their practicality and livability. The family Picasso has always been perfect in these terms, and remains without change. With capacity for five or seven passengers, only the Citroën Grand C4 Picasso can accommodate the maximum of occupants, they will have a large interior space and adjustable, with a second row of seats adjustable longitudinally and the ability to fold each seat individually.
Another detail that has not lost the family Picasso is the chair of the airbag with function and comfort. Although it is only available for the finish highest of all. Of course we can not forget the cargo space. A minimum space of 537 litres with the Citroen C4 Picasso and 645 to his older brother, enable to hold large amount of objects. In addition to now, and thanks to the renovation the gate will be able to have hands-free function.
Another of the main attractions of this renewal comes from the technological point of view. Current developments are forcing brands to include in their models, and the family C4 Picasso will be equipped with the latest technology developed by Citroën. Most of them focus on safety, as the detector of fatigue, the recognition of traffic signals, the detector of the involuntary change of lane, the warning device of the blind spot, adaptive cruise control and Active City Brake, among many others.
In the finish more high the top of the screen will be of higher quality and better equipped
however much of this new technology is intended to improve the life on board. It is for this reason that the base systems are maintained, but are improved to deliver a new experience. Elements such as the radio and the computer infotainment have improved their qualities and connectivity, being now compatible with Apple devices and Android. With this, you are able to duplicate the screen of our smartphones in the car, to be able to manage the functions and applications without having to divert attention away from the road.
finally there is talk of mechanical. We must recognize that the range motor of the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso already was composed of units that conformed to the european regulations of emissions. It is for this reason that the renewal will continue counting with that range consists of three diesel engines and three petrol engines.
The only significant change is the adoption of the block PureTech 130 HP S&S and the automatic change ETG6. Until now, this combination was impossible to select, since it always came associated with the manual change of six speeds. Otherwise everything remains the same, being at the head of benefits the petrol THP 165 HP with automatic change.
The new family Citroën C4 Picasso will be available from this summer, from the month of June to be more exact. The manufacturing will be carried out in the plant that Citroën has in Vigo. By the time you are unaware of the sale prices, but according to the changes applied we will not see big differences with the current models.
