Up top the chrome bars that spread out from Citroen’s double-chevron emblem now stretch out to encircle the LED daytime running lights. There’s also a revised lower air intake, number plate surround and more chrome highlights than before.
Other changes include new 17-inch alloy wheels, 3D-effect tail-lights, an updated colour palette, and the availability of a two-tone roof and a silver roof arches for the C4 Picasso.
The C4 Picasso – which has 5 seats – and the Grand C4 Picasso – which has 7 – now share a more “dynamic front end” to convey a “sense of power and robustness”, Citroen argued. Furthermore, chevrons extend to enclose the daytime running lights with chrome trim and the grille has a gloss, black, mount for the number plate.
A few driving aids come to the Picasso family for the first time, including a tiredness alert, lane departure warning, active cruise control (that’s able to bring the car to a complete stop if needs be), front collision alert and speed sign recognition.
The two new powertrains are the availability of the PureTech 130PS three-cylinder petrol with an automatic for the first time, returning 55.4mpg combined and 115g/km. The other newcomer, also a petrol, has 110PS and is available only with the smaller Picasso and a manual gearbox.
