The group PSA (Peugeot and Citroen DS) are working very hard to meet the goals imposed by Carlos Tavares to overcome the crisis in which it is found. DS is now an independent brand and Peugeot has radically changed its positioning in the market. Now it is the turn to Citroen with its new range of models among which will highlight the new C3 and C3 Picassofuture.
The urban minivan of the firm began its commercial activity already almost nine years ago and although sales have been good for the arrival of the SUV they were confined to the ostracism. For his replacement signing the two chevrons will rely on the good make Opel and employees of the plant which has the signature in Figueruelas (Zaragoza). The reason for this situation is that the C3 Picasso is born of the now defunct agreement it had signed PSA with General Motors and once committed investments both decided to respect them.
As we already know the model will be presented at any major show this year, but under the photos spy and above all which opens this news already we can move some things. The design of the new C3 Picasso will leave behind forms minivans to plunge in the SUV segment. So your design will be a little shorter and less square; It will gain in width and strength and respect to the outgoing model will become more aggressive both in its front as rear.
The Italian Middle AlVolante spy has presented his readers a recreation which seems rather than reliable under forms presenting and which models have captured by photographers. The design of the C3 Picasso will take all or almost all the features of the style seen in the urban C3 and will take you into the realm of the SUV. There will be a few main headlights separate projectors that offer daylight following the line opened by the C4 Cactus.
Regarding back will keep the same headlights than the included C3 light in fact three dimensions. This however part, according to what was seen by the recreation of AlVolante it looks a lot like the Fiat 500 L and may not like much to customers. In terms of customization (including airbump) and design elements the C3 Picasso will be of the best in the segment because seeing combinations of C3 this surely will exceed them.
Finally he plays speak of its platform and mechanical range. As we have learned will be developed above the modern platform PSA EMP2 retouched to keep an external size similar to that had so far (imagine that Opel will also use this base to give life to its Meriva). Its mechanical range will be the same that mounts the current C3 Picasso and which revolve around blocks PureTech gasoline and diesel BlueHDI between 100 to 110 HP.
We will watch if the firm decides to release the first official photos or some additional information on the SUV future of the firm.
