After debuting the new C4, Citroen is now testing the Picasso version of the small family car. In fact, this is the second time the future C4 Picasso has been spotted testing - the first time, Citroen took it for some extreme winter testings in Northern Europe. Now, the company has gone out for yet another round, but this time, it’s the hot summer months pushing the car to its limits.
The new C4 Picasso will be offered with the same engine range found in the C4, meaning there will be a range of petrol and HDi diesel engines, as well as the hybrid system Hybrid4 seen in the DS5 and Peugeot 3008. Initially, the C4 will be offered as a five-door models, but a seven seater model - called the C4 Grand Picasso - will also be offered. While the 5 seater will have conventional rear doors, the 7 seater is expected to have sliding rear doors.
The new Citroen C4 Picasso will be making its world debut at the 2012 Paris Auto Show in September and will hit dealerships in 2013.
