Citroen launches updated C3 Picasso

Citroen is updating its C3 Picasso with the mini MPV receiving new updates from 1st November. It is now available with a new Euro 5 HDi 110 engine and 6-speed transmission, plus there is the addition of a Connecting Box (USB and Bluetooth connectivity) as standard specification on VTR+ and Exclusive trim levels. Citroen has also introduced a new limited edition - the C3 Picasso Blackcherry.

The C3 Picasso Blackcherry is based on the VTR+ model and is powered by a 1.6 HDi 90hp engine. With cherry red, glossy black exterior and interior detailing, the model also benefits from a premium black metallic body colour, roof bars and dynamic 17-inch cherry red diamond-tipped alloy wheels. A generous level of standard equipment includes air conditioning, cruise control with speed limiter, Connecting Box (USB socket & Bluetooth system), electrically adjustable door mirrors and front electric windows.

With the introduction of Citroen's new Euro 5 1.6 HDi 110hp engine, claimed economy improves to just under 59mpg over a combined cycle with CO2 emissions down 5g/km on the Euro 4 unit to just 125g/km.

The Citroen C3 Picasso range now benefits from a full Euro 5 compliant engine line-up and all HDi models qualify for free VED in the first year. The petrol 1.4 VTi 95hp VT and the 1.6HDi 90hp VT have been tweaked and now offer improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. Claimed combined cycle fuel economy increases from 42.8mpg to 44.1mpg and 60.1mpg to 61.4mpg respectively. CO2 emissions are down 4g/km on both models, resulting in reduced BIK tax rates (down 2 bands). The VED also reduces for both models, from band G to F and band D to C respectively.

Helping to reduce fuel consumption and maintain low CO2 emissions, all C3 Picasso models are now fitted withMichelin Energy Saver tyres. These efficient tyres mean specifying larger 17-inch optional alloy wheels on Exclusive models will no longer have an impact on CO2 output.

Keeping occupants connected and entertained, Citroen's Connecting Box will be fitted as standard from the VTR+ trim level. The system offers a USB socket for connecting MP3 players to the audio system and a Bluetooth connection for hands-free calls and allowing users to stream music wirelessly from Bluetooth enabled devices.
