Slated to be shown off at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the Technospace Concept looks production ready. Given the new radical design language that Citroen currently follows (Check out the Citroen DS5 for instance), expect the 2014 Picasso to retain minimal changes from the concept design.
If Citroen were to choose the above path, the 2014 Picasso will be 40 mm (1.57 inches) shorter in height than the outgoing model and 55 mm (2.16 inches) longer for extra cabin space. With these changes, the new Picasso will feature new proportions that delicately combine compactness and a large cabin space — a good aspect to impress customers looking for sheer practicality in a well-built package.
To befit the name, the car boasts several cool features to fascinate the children you will soon be ferrying such as a full-touch driving interface with a high-definition 12-inch panoramic screen.
The all-you-can-fit French van sits on Citroen’s new Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2) that aims to make the car lighter and more stable. And with an eco-friendly lineup in the cards, expect emission to be at a record level of 98 g/km.
The production version of the Technospace concept, aka the 2014 C4 Picasso will see the light of day from the second half of 2013. We’ll update this review once details fly by.
With the Xsara Picasso, C4 Picasso, Grand C4 Picasso and C3 Picasso, Citroën has built a real success story by asserting itself as one of the leaders in the compact MPV segment. Since 1999, the brand has sold almost 3 million Picassos. Now Citroën is entering a new phase in the sector by revealing the CITROËN TECHNOSPACE concept, which points to the brand’s future compact MPV that will be released from the second half of 2013.
A demonstration of Citroën’s ‘Créative Technologie’, the new concept ushers in a new era with:
A record CO2 emissions level of 98g/km, achieved thanks to the new Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2), which features efficient architecture and minimises weight.
Multiple technologies for enhanced comfort, including a full-touch driving interface with a high-definition 12’’ panoramic screen.
Previously unseen proportions that combine compact size (length: 4.43m/width: 1.83m/height: 1.61m) with standard-setting interior space and class-leading boot capacity (537 Litres VDA).
Strong, expressive design with dynamic lines and high-tech headlamps complemented by 3D-effect tail lights inspired by the latest Citroën concept cars.
The concept will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show.
