Test Citroen C4 Picasso 2016, connected

Citroën C4 Picasso test 2016, which is now selling more connectivity and a new exterior. Just what I needed to keep fighting with Volkswagen Touran and Renault Scénic. After driving the variant Pure Tech 130 hp, also new to the range, we are at the controls of the Grand C4 Picasso 2016, the seven-seat version equipped in this case with BlueHDi diesel engine 120 hp.

Here you have the first round of the Citroën C4 Picasso2016, who faces a much needed facelift. Not in vainrivals like the Volkswagen Touran, Opel Zafira or the Renault Scénic has just been renovated and itthe French now attacks with a redesigned front (both for5 seater version to the C4 Picasso) and an endowmenttechnology and more advanced connectivity.

Inside, more thanLast additions featured are new environments that can be chosento buy the new C4 Picasso: Wild Blue (OrientedModularity for youth and sports) beige Duna whatponders the brightness and gray Hype which puts a point ofluxury with leather upholstery.

Light, space and ride comfort were three of thegreat virtues of the newCitroën C4 Picasso and remain in version 2016. TheFirst, thanks to a very generous glazed surface,second with 4.4 or 4.6 meters long and 1.83 wide ortrunk of up to 704 liters in Grand Picasso. Of thefiltering a suspension comfort great handles allpotholes, but gives too many swings curve. Henew Citroen C4 Picasso is made for travel and travel but withoutLarge displays of driving behavior.

So I checked the engine Citroen C4 Picasso130 Pure Tech. It is the great novelty of the range, a three-cylinder thatyields only 1.2 liter 130 hp and demonstrates how the brand galaredoubles its commitment to downsizing. Homologous an average consumption of5.1 l / 100 km and have passed this test six. I liked themits smoothness and silence of running, two virtues which fitperfectly with the comfort you are looking for Citroën. In this section,now the French brand is above its rivals. InInstead, look no hard acceleration, as the block is takenpower delivery easy and low engine shows.

Along with the new block in the mechanical range remain thefive known options: three diesels with power outputs of 100, 120 and150 hp and two petrol 110 and 165 hp. They can be combined withrespective six-speed manual or automatic.
