Citroen C4 Picasso priced

08 December 2006

Citroen's new C4 Picasso seven-seater MPV will cost between £14,995 and £21,695 when it goes on sale in early January.

Four trim levels of LX, SX, VTR+ and Exclusive will be available. Buyers can choose from two petrol engines (a 127bhp 1.8-litre or a 143bhp 2.0-litre), and two diesels (a 110bhp 1.6-litre or a 138bhp 2.0-litre). Each 2.0-litre unit uses a six-speed automatic transmission, which is an option on the 1.6-litre diesel.

Entry-level LX trim is available with the lower-rated petrol for £14,995 or the 110bhp diesel for £16,495. There's no air-conditioning, alloy wheels or stereo at this point in the range, but LX models do come with stability control, seven airbags, Isofix child seat mounting points, remote central locking and electric front windows and door mirrors.

SX trim is available in all except the more powerful diesel and, starting from £15,995, is £1000 more than LX. Additions include manual air conditioning, chilled storage boxes, larger wheels (but not alloys) and a CD stereo with six speakers and steering wheel-mounted controls.

VTR+ cars are available with any engine, and with prices from £16,695 to £19,795 they're another £700 more than an SX. An in-built air freshener is added to the equipment list, along with electric rear windows, aircraft-style seatback trays, front foglights and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Top-of-the-range Exclusive specification isn't available with the entry-level petrol, but costs £19,845 with the 2.0-litre petrol, £20,595 with the automatic version of the 1.6-litre diesel and £21,695 with the 2.0-litre diesel. Automatic dual-zone climate control, MP3 compatible stereo, alarm, automatic headlights, self-levelling suspension and rear parking sensors are the main additions.

Nothing has been confirmed, but it is likely that cashback offers will be available soon.
