The best way to explore Europe is by car and the low prices offered by tourist leasing programmes are just one of the benefits that make schemes such as Citroen’s DriveEurope the best way to get behind the wheel in Europe.

The Citroen C4 Picasso 5 seat Hatchback, with its expansive windows, spacious interior, economical engines and features to make touring easy, has a proven track record as being the ideal car to see Europe and the launch of the new model, branded the ‘Techospace’ thanks to its new technology, has arrived just in time for travelers planning a late season trip to Europe.

Sitting in the middle of the 15 vehicle range of small hatchbacks, sedans, wagons people movers and convertibles offered by Citroen DriveEurope, the new Citroen C4 Picasso has a footprint on the road little bigger than a five door hatch, but its design means it has five adult-sized seats and a huge 537 litre boot.

The new Citroen C4 Picasso offered by Citroen DriveEurope uses an advanced new 1.6 litre diesel engine that provides this spacious people mover with the fuel economy of a little hatch back – a combine fuel figure of just 4 litres per 100 km and a CO2 figure of just 104 g/km. In a part of the world where diesel is usually cheaper than petrol, but still expensive by Australian standards and where there are many areas that restrict the use of vehicles over 120 g/km, this is a very useful combination of efficiency and low emissions.

Travelling convenience is guaranteed by features like Bluetooth and USB, rear parking sensors, automatic electric park brake, automatic lights and wipers and excellent storage areas throughout the car. GPS is also standard and controlled by Citroen’s new 7” touchpad which also controls the automatic air conditioning.
