Citroen C3 Picasso receives upgrade

Citroën’s supermini MPV, the C3 Picasso, will receive some smart new updates from today (November 1).

It is now available with a new Euro 5 HDi 110 engine and 6-speed transmission, plus there is the addition of USB and Bluetooth connectivity as standard specification on VTR+ and Exclusive trim levels.

Citroën has also introduced a tasty new limited edition to the innovative MPV’s line-up - the C3 Picasso Blackcherry.

It is based on the VTR+ model and is powered by a refined and efficient 1.6HDi 90hp engine. With smart cherry red and glossy black exterior and interior detailing, the model also benefits from a premium black metallic body colour, roof bars and 17” cherry red diamond-tipped alloy wheels.

A generous level of standard equipment includes air conditioning, cruise control with speed limiter, USB socket & Bluetooth system, electrically adjustable door mirrors and front electric windows.
With the introduction of Citroën’s new Euro 5 1.6HDi 110hp engine, fuel economy is just under 59mpg over a combined cycle with CO2 emissions down 5g/km on the Euro 4 unit to just 125g/km.

The Citroën 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 re-homologated and now offer improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions.

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” optional alloy wheels on Exclusive models will no longer have an impact on CO2 output.
