New Models

The new Citroën C4 Picasso has arrived (with a hands-free boot to boot)

With prices starting from €26,695 and €28,995 respectively.

THE GRAND C4 Picasso is the big seven-seat brother of the five-seat MPV C4 Picasso. Both cars are spacious and comfortable and new models have just launched in Ireland.

The new C4 Picasso range boasts a distinctively Citroen front end, with daytime running lights with chrome trim, a wider and lower front bumper and gloss black central moulding.

Around the back there are new 3D-effect lights, which come as standard across the range and there are new chevrons finished in gloss black with a chrome surround.

Two new body paint colours are available, Lazuli Blue and Soft Sand, and there is a new bi-tone option with a black roof available on the C4 Picasso.
