Citroën’s ever-popular supermini MPV, C3 Picasso, offers a series of upgrades from this month, making it more desirable than ever. The award-winning model’s already bold styling and innovative architecture has been updated with new design features, fresh body colours and additional optional technology. The newly restyled C3 Picasso is ‘on sale’ now in the UK, priced from just £12,995 OTR.

New exterior styling features include a revised front bumper and the latest Citroën chevrons on all versions; together with the addition of LED daytime running lights for a fresh new look on VTR+ and Exclusive models. Two striking new body colours are also introduced; Ink Blue and Pearlescent White.

Inside, the flexible, airy and spacious cabin is updated with a sophisticated new trim called Mistral ‘Mixou’ cloth, which is specified as standard on all VTR+ models. There’s also the option of a new ‘Claudia Mistral’ full black leather upholstery on Exclusive models. Citroën’s new eMyWay satellite navigation system is added to the option list, with extra functionality over the previous MyWay system, but at no extra cost. eMyWay can also be specified with a reversing camera and rear parking sensors for easier manoeuvres. An electro-chrome rear view mirror is now included in C3 Picasso’s Automatic Pack option at no extra charge and the new-look C3 Picasso comes with new 15-inch ‘Asterodea’ wheel covers as standard on VT versions.

Citroën has also uprated the power output of the HDi 110 engine on the C3 Picasso Exclusive, renaming it HDi 115. The slight increase in power from 82kW to 84kW has no effect on the model’s fuel economy or CO2 emissions.
