The face-lifted Citroen C3 Picasso is on sale now, with styling tweaks, more options, an uprated engine and a starting price of just 12,995.

New styling for the MPV includes a revised front bumper and Citroen's familial double-chevron grille. LED daytime running lights are also added to VTR+ and Exclusive trim versions.

Two new exterior colours are available, with the addition of Ink Blue and Pearlescent White.

Inside, the C3 Picasso's cabin has been updated with a new Mistral 'Mixou' cloth that's standard on VTR+ cars, while a new option of 'Claudia Mistral' black leather upholstery is available for range-topping Exclusive models.

Buyers now have the option of Citroen's new eMyWay satellite-navigation system, which can be specified with a reversing camera and rear parking sensors.

An electro-chrome rearview mirror has been added to the C3 Picassos Automatic Pack option at no extra cost, and VT models now get 15-inch 'Asterodea' wheel covers.

Mechanically, the current HDi 110 engine has been uprated by 5bhp to produce 113bhp, and renamed the HDi 115. Average fuel economy and emissions are unchanged at 58.8mpg and 125g/km of CO2.
