Refreshed C3 Picasso on sale now
Tuesday 04 December 2012
• Updated styling for Citroen’s mini-MPV
• New interior options
• Priced from £12,995
The latest Citroen C3 Picasso MPV has gone on sale in the UK. The facelifted car features styling alterations, new paint colours and more technology available from the options list.
Exterior changes include a revised front bumper and the adoption of Citroen’s new family face, featuring an even more prominent chevron badge. VTR+ and Exclusive models also benefit from LED daytime running lights, as well as two new paint options; Ink Blue and Pearlescent White.
The reinvigorated C3 Picasso also gets an updated interior, with new Mistral ‘Mixou’ cloth which is available on all VTR+ models while ‘Claudia Mistral’ black leather is standard on Exclusive models. Citroen’s new eMyWay sat-nav system is available for the first time on the car and a reversing camera as well as rear parking sensors can also be specified. An electro-chrome auto dipping rear-view mirror is also on the options list.
Most of the engines remain the same, with two petrols and two diesels available. The higher-powered diesel, however, now produces 112bhp compared to 110 on previous models and is called an HDI 115 as opposed to an HDI 110. Emissions and fuel economy remain the same.
The car is on sale now and costs from £12,995 for the VTi 95 manual VT, rising to £17,475 for the HDi manual Exclusive model.
