Citroen C3 Picasso exclusive pictures

Citroen today announces the C3 Picasso, a supermini-MPV it claims has the innovative magic of the company’s DS masterpiece, the ‘useful and beautiful’ approach of Apple’s iPhone and the unblinking practicality needed to wound the market-leading Vauxhall/Opel Meriva.

The spacious, eye-catching MPV goes on UK sale in summer 2009. It’s based on the next-generation C3 supermini, and runs four-cylinder engines turning the front wheels. Expect a starting price just under £11,000.

Actually, it’s not that innovative but the package is superbly focused on satisfying the punter.

Citroen has designed the C3 Picasso with unbending, Teutonic discipline, to give it class-leading practicality. CAR was treated to a sneak preview last month, and sat through a presentation which compared the baby Picasso’s metrics with key rivals the Vauxhall Meriva, Ford Fusion, Nissan Note and Renault Grand Modus.
