The Citroën C4 Picasso is a range of two compact MPVs, a five-seater and a seven-seater (Grand C4 Picasso), unveiled by French automaker Citroën in August 2006 and presented at the 2006 Paris Motor Show in September 2006 for the seven-seater, and in January 2007 for the five-seater. It shares platform and engines with the Citroën C4 and Peugeot 307 and coexists with the Xsara Picasso, the previous compact MPV produced by Citroën.

Overview Edit

The second C4 Picasso model was officially unveiled on January 5, 2007[1] and has been displayed at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show. For range consistency, the seven-seater is named Grand C4 Picasso.

One of the main features of both cars is the enormous windscreen which stretches back into the roof beyond the back of the driver's head. Two additional blinds are attached to the conventional sun visors and can be deployed to reduce glare, or simply on occasions when occupants find the large glass area unwelcome.

The Grand C4 Picasso is slightly larger than other seven-seat compact MPVs like the Mazda5 and Renault Grand Scénic, and even larger than some early large MPVs like the Citroën Evasion. For this reason, some critics consider it as a large MPV, while other do not because of its similarities in engine range, inner room and price with compact MPVs.

A pneumatic rear suspension is available as an option which make the ride smoother and can lower the sill. In some markets this option is only available on higher trim levels.
