Distinctive and innovative, the Citroën C3 Picasso is perhaps the ultimate in family car style and capability. With its unique 'spacebox' design, the Picasso combines MPV space with SUV presence, and offers plenty of room to accommodate a hectic family lifestyle. Packed with thoughtful extras and designed for efficiency, this is one of the most practical and unique models on the road. Find it today at the Charles Hurst Citroën dealership in Belfast.
Visually striking, the Picasso has an aesthetic of its own. Defying dimensions, the car's bold chunky flanks and tailgate are complimented by the smooth sweeping curves of the headlights and bonnet. A panoramic windscreen curves into integrated 'quarterlights' at the front to offer an all-encompassing view, which not only increases safety but makes for a lighter and more enjoyable driving experience.
Optional on VTR+ and Exclusive models is a super-size sunroof, which gives the whole cabin an open and more airy feel. Along with stylish deep windows, it floods the car with natural light, making the C3 Picasso the ultimate in family-friendly interiors.
The Citroën C3 Picasso is available in an array of engine sizes, with diesel and petrol choices for power. There are two diesel options – both are 1.6-litre units and come with five-speed or six-speed manual gearboxes. Both engines are brilliantly cost effective, and at a peak of 68.9 mpg combined they ensure you get more miles for your money. With an impressive 90bhp each, the pair will both go from 0-62mph in a nippy 13.5 seconds.
An assortment of petrol engines proves petrol performance can be economic and refined. The 1.6-litre equivalent with the VTR+ trim level boasts an inspired 120bhp, and can achieve 0-62mph in just 11.5 seconds.
Inside, the vehicle is designed for comfort and space. There's a choice of charming trims, and drivers will enjoy the tactile 'Mistral Jill' cloth option as much as the 'Mistral Claudia' full black leather alternative. The front seats come with shaped bolsters and high backs for premium posture, whilst raised bases create generous foot room for rear passengers.
There's space for everyone and everything they need, with versatile seats generating maximum storage possibilities. Easily foldable rear seats split 60/40 to make the room you require, and even the front passenger seat can be placed flat to house long loads of up to 2.41 metres. On Exclusive models, the Spacebox+ Storage System offers more room under the rear footwells. Especially family friendly features are the 'aircraft'-style tables on the rear of the front seats. Immediately retractable, they come with their own integrated reading lights to keep the kids busy on long journeys.
The standard ABS and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) combine with Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) and automatic hazard warning lights to ensure the safest of drives in the C3 Picasso. An optional six airbags and energy absorbing side protection beams also serve to protect the whole family in an emergency.A nice touch for parents is the useful child surveillance mirror, standard on all Exclusive models. Audible and light warning alerts if any passengers aren't belted in also feature at the Exclusive trim, and ensure peace of mind and safety for all the family. You can choose from a wide range of body colours, trims and materials to ensure the new C3 Picasso suit your taste and needs.
