SPIED: Citroen Grand Picasso
CREATIVE TECHNOLOGY: Spy shots of the Citroen Grand Picasso show a large MPV sticking to its French roots.
Citroen’s slogan suggests that it has always been about “Creative Technology”, but lately it seems this has changed as the French automaker is reportedly working away from its roots toward more commercially viable vehicles.
Fear not however as there’s still a bit of French creativity left in the automaker, and this shows in the way its designers and engineers left their mark on an upcoming large MPV, most likely the replacement for the 7-seater C4 Grand Picasso. This is what Citroen does best - large, stylish boxes with revolutionary interiors.
The engine range will most likely be the same as in the current C4 Berline, as Citroen has no secret engines it is working on.
This means a diesel line-up made up of the base 1.6-litre turbos, the HDi 90 and HDi 110 and the two-litre HDi 150. Petrol options will include the base VTi 120 and VTi 95, plus the THP 155 developed with BMW. We’ll likely also see the Hybrid4 system from the DS5 and Peugeot 3008 as well.
