Emissions improved

Citroën’s C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso are now even more fuel and CO 2 efficient, thanks to the re-homologation of the 1.6 and 2.0HDi diesel engines in both models.

For versions equipped with the 1.6HDi 110hp DPFS* power-plant, with manual and Auto EGS** transmission, combined cycle fuel economy is improved by almost 4%, whileemissions are reduced by 5g/km.

Cars fitted with the more powerful 2.0HDi 138hp DPFS* unit, with the Auto EGS transmission, benefit from a 1.7% improvement in fuel economy and a 2g/km reduction in emissions. The improvedemissions result in a 1-point reduction in BIK tax rates for all versions and lower 1st year VED for the 1.6HDi 110hp manual models - from £125 to just £110.

Citroën’s eTouch system also allows drivers to consult information online at their ‘MyCITROËN’ personal space, which allows them monitor to their vehicle’s maintenance requirements and to receive advice on improving their fuel economy. These services are free and available 24-7.

Citroën’s new e-HDi micro-hybrid technology combines a second-generation Stop & Start system; a reversible alternator that recovers energy during braking; an e-booster function that re-starts the engine instantly (0.4 seconds); and a refined Euro 5 HDi 110hp DPFS engine with a 6-speed EGS transmission.

This advanced powertrain delivers combined cycle economy of up to 58.9mpg for C4 Picasso and 57.6mpg for Grand C4 Picasso, with CO 2 emissions of between 125g/km and 132g/km.
