2008 Citroen C4 Picasso Lounge
Citroën is taking the Compact MPV to new levels of luxury with the introduction of the Lounge, a very special edition of the Company’s multi-award winning C4 Picasso, created uniquely for the UK market. The marque’s popular family car has been given a prestigious upgrade to create a stylish and distinctive vehicle that combines a sleek and dynamic exterior with a spacious and luxurious interior.
Perfect for those looking to travel in style, the C4 Picasso Lounge is full of exclusive equipment such as full black leather upholstery for the four large individual armchair style seats, chrome wheels and a vast panoramic sunroof to ensure that Citroen’s top of the range Lounge stands out from the crowd.
With its curvaceous black bodywork, sporty rear spoiler and special chrome grille, the C4 Picasso Lounge’s exterior communicates status, style and individuality. Inside, the car’s sharp design exudes quality, refinement, comfort and well-being.
The four individual luxury leather upholstered chairs, complete with adjustable head and armrests offer maximum space and comfort for all occupants, whilst their aural comfort is taken care of by laminated windows to reduce road noise and a Philips designed NXT sound-system with state-of-the-art flat-panel speaker technology to produce a clearer, all-round Hi-Fi sound quality.
Fitted with a responsive 2.0 HDi 138hp engine, the C4 Picasso Lounge features a 6 speed fully automatic gearbox and delivers smooth acceleration with a top speed of 118mph and almost 40 mpg on the combined cycle. Based on the Exclusive trim level, the new model has a RRP of £23,995.
The C4 Picasso Lounge is designed for exemplary comfort. The roomy interior invites occupants to sit back and relax whilst the unique panoramic windscreen is enhanced by the massive sunroof that allows light to pour into the cabin, creating a bright and spacious environment. At night time, the interior is bathed in atmospheric and functional illumination, including convenient reading lights for rear passengers. LEDs in the door handles and adjustable mood lighting strips in the front console and door panels help to create a calming environment.
The C4’s unique fixed-centred controls steering wheel also puts many of the car’s main functions at the driver’s fingertips; ensuring driver attention is maintained on the road. Comprehensive driver assistance equipment includes cruise control, speed limiter, front and rear parking sensors, automatic digital air conditioning as well as rain-sensitive wipers and automatic headlights.
In addition to being one of the most comfortable vehicles on the road, with its self levelling pneumatic rear suspension, the C4 Picasso Lounge is also one of the safest, with its 7 seat stablemate having been awarded a maximum 5-star protection rating by Euro NCAP. Equipped with all the latest Citroën safety technology, the Lounge features ABS with EBD and EBA, ESP with traction control, seven airbags and a reinforced body structure to protect occupants and absorb the energy of an impact.
