The Citroen C3 Picasso

Citroën has revealed its latest mini MPV – the C3 Picasso – which will launch in the UK in the middle of 2009.

The French carmaker describes the mini MPV, due to be shown at the Paris Motor Show in October, as deceptively spacious.

It adds that the split-folding rear seats slide independently, offering the best possible legroom or load space.

The front passenger seat can also be folded completely flat to increase the load length.

The C3 Picasso has a three-part windscreen, wraparound windows and a panoramic glass roof.

Motorists will be able to choose from two petrol and two diesel engines.

Which? Car editor Richard Headland said: ‘Citroën’s MPV range is expanding further with the C3 Picasso.

‘It will go head to head with our current favourites in the mini MPV class – the Renault Modus and Skoda Roomster.’
