Set to debut in Paris this month, Citroen has revealed what is likely to be the first and last styling update to its five-seater 2011 Citroen C4 Picasso and seven-seater Grand Picasso as the pair enters its fifth and fourth year of production, respectively.
In Australia, the C4 Picasso range is represented by the seven-seat Grand Picasso only.
Largely a cosmetic update, the C4 Picasso gains an updated front end, including a more prominent grille design, a larger centre intake and a new foglight housing design with LED daytime running lights. The headlights also gain a basic update, featuring modern updated internal styling.
Inside, the C4 Picasso gets new trim and colour options, although Citroen has revealed little in this regard - keeping some details for the Paris Auto Show.
Engine options carry over almost unchanged, although Citroen's 'micro-hybrid e-HDi' engine is expected to be offered in Europe, featuring a Stop-Start system and an electric motor mated with the diesel engine.
While fuel economy should be vastly improved, total output is expected to remain unchanged.
An Australian debut for the updated C4 Picasso has yet to be confirmed. Australian buyers have recently benefited from a pricing shake-up on the local seven-seat C4 Picasso, with more than $6000 cut from its price tag, dropping from $45,990 (plus on-road costs) to $39,990, drive-away.
The Australian-delivered C4 Picasso is powered by a Euro V-compliant 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, producing 100kW at 4000rpm and 270Nm of torque at 2000rpm. Fuel consumption is listed at 5.0 l/100km on the combined cycle.
