Yes, the people at Citroen Australia are feeling very generous and loving towards families this year as it is now offering the Citroen C4 Picasso for $39,990 drive away.

So what’s it got going for it? Well, the French people mover is full of great designs and innovative features typical of Citroen, such as flat-folding rear seats, slide-adjustable seats for all three rows, almost two-cubic-metres of cargo space (once the seats are folded down of course) and a bunch of other features such as roof rails, in-dash drinks cooler, detachable rechargeable torch in the boot, the Visiospace ‘receding’ windscreen, offering a spacious and pleasant environment, and amongst all; a class-leading fuel economy rating.

Citreon says it understands the unavoidable costs of raising a family and has successfully won its pursuit towards providing a unique, reliable and economically sound package.

Miles Williams, general manager of Citroen Australia said in a recent report,

“We decided that already offering the lowest fuel consumption of any people mover in the Australian car market was not enough, we also had to trim the price below the critical $40,000 barrier and ensure that it was an on road, driveway price. After all, $6000 goes a long way on children’s clothing, toys, school uniforms and all the essentials of family life!”

Manufacturer’s claims

The Citroen C4 Picasso HDi comes with a 2.0-litre, turbo-diesel four cylinder engine that outputs 100kW of power and 270Nm of torque, backed by a six-speed automatic transmission as standard. According to sources the car is also said to have a resale rating of 61 percent, which compares well to the Chrysler Grand Voyager’s 48 perecent, the diesel Hyundai iMax’s 60 percent and the Dodge Journey’s 57 percent.
