CITROËN Grand C4 Picasso arrives in Australia

CITROËN Grand C4 Picasso 2014 600
The all-new CITROËN Grand C4 Picasso arrives in Australia packed with a high level of specification, technology and comfort features which adds approx. $9,000 in additional value over the previous model it replaces. This represents great value for the customer as the price difference is half that at $4,500.

Built off CITROËN’s new EMP2 platform, the all new Grand C4 Picasso provides the best combination of versatility, cabin space and accessibility. The wheelbase for the new model is stretched by a further 11cm to 2.84m while keeping the same length as the previous model – 4.6m.

The new platform, combined with other lightweight materials, sees overall weight drop by a massive 100kg compared with the previous model which contributes to lower fuel consumption.

In Australia, the seven-seat Grand C4 Picasso is available in one trim level– Exclusive – and with one engine and gearbox combination.
