The pleasant CitroŽn C3 Picasso has been designed on the basis of the Peugeot 207 platform. This monospace, 4.08 metres x 1.73 x 1.62, will have a usable space of 385 to 500 litres on top of its 5 seats, which sets a new standard for this segment. Another specificity for this CitroŽn C3 Picasso is its 3-part front glazed area, with the aim of increasing the front three quarter visibility, traditionally limited on this type of vehicle. This Picasso can also be fitted with a panoramic roof, which increases the total glazed area to 4.52 m_.
Under the bonnet, two petrol engines and two diesels are available. These are a 1.4 VTi, a 1.6 VTi and two 1.6 HDi versions with particulate filters producing 92 and 110 bhp. The model is set to be marketed from February 2009.
