A little Picasso

A mini-MPV worth getting excited about? It's true...

CItroen C3 Picasso

There are some seriously good wheels going on down on the Citroen stand. And none better than those on the C3 Picasso.

We know, we know - cool wheels and mini-MPVs don't often occupy the same region of the automotive Venn diagram. But the C3 Picasso is a mini-MPV with a difference, a mini-MPV that you might actually get excited about.

To prove this, Citroen have mounted their display cars at jaunty angles - to prove, we presume, that the C3 Picasso is capable of going up and down hills - and surrounded them with glamorous model-types. It's a tough life.

Mechanical details are all as expected - a couple of petrols and a couple of diesels, with the 110bhp HDi likely to be the pick of the bunch - and Citroen tells us we'll definitely see the C3 Picasso in the UK by the middle of next year.

Whether it'll get those excellent wheels remains to be seen. We hope so.

Now share it...
