New C4 Picasso is a seven-seater

However, Citroen is keeping the curren Xsara Picasso as well. But whereas the Xsara Picasso is a five-seater the new C4 Picasso has seven seats.

The C4 Picasso follows the same design trend as its C4 hatchback sibling.

Citroen also claims the the C4 Picasso offers great visibility for its driver and passengers with a standard wide-angle panoramic windscreen.

This MPV comes with an innovative drive station that frees up the space in the centre of the dashboard by doing away with the usual central support console for the gearshift control. T

The original drive station is combined with either the new 6-speed electronic gearbox system or the automatic gearbox.

The gearbox controls are steering wheel-mounted, while the selector and gearshift paddles are built into the steering column.

It comes with a 105 kW 2-litre petrol engine or the 80 kW or 100kW diesel powerplants.
