Everyone was expecting to see the new Citroen Picasso revealed at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, but the French company decided to only come with a concept version. The production version is continuing its testing session and our spy photographers have caught testing again in Sweden, but this time it was camo-free.
The new Picasso will be offered with the same engine range found in the C4, so that customers will have to choose between both petrol and HDi diesel engines. A hybrid version - Hybrid4 - similar to the one offered in the DS5 and Peugeot 3008 will also be offered.
Initially, the new Picasso will be offered as a five-door model, but a seven-seat model, called the C4 Grand Picasso, will also be offered.
The production version Picasso will likely be unveiled at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.
You have probably noticed that these past few days have been pretty busy with spy shots. That’s probably because most automakers have taken their future models out for extreme testing in the bitter cold. This is exactly what Citroen did with their upcoming Grand Picasso.
When compared to the standard Picasso, the Grand Picasso version will receive longer rear doors, a boxier rear and has been specially designed for bigger families. While many were expecting sliding doors on the Grand Picasso, the new spy shots reveal that the doors will be of conventional type.
We expect many of the engines from the C4 to be carried over for the Grand Picasso, meaning you will find a range of petrol and HDi diesel engines available. Rumors suggest that the Grand Picasso could also receive the Hybrid4 system seen in the DS5 and Peugeot 3008.
The new Citroen Grand Picasso will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show and will be put on sale in late 2013.
