Launch: Citroen Grand C4 Picasso


Kuala Lumpur, 16th April, 2015 – Naza Euro Motors has officially launched the much-anticipated petrol variant of the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso. While the Grand C4 Picasso was launched last year in the shape of a 2.0-litre turbodiesel, the arrival of the petrol variant is set to rake in interest from Malaysian consumers.

As to be expected from Citroen’s of late, the Grand C4 Picasso looks the part. All the lovely lines, curves and scoopes from the DS series is carried forward, resulting in one of the most aesthetically pleasing MPVs we’ve ever seen. The elegance and appeal of this French MPV is further boosted by 18-inch “Python” alloys and a panoramic roof with Citroen’s trademark extended front windscreen.

Under the hood of the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso sits a direct-injection THP163 engine(found in the Peugeot 308 THP) with 163hp and 240Nm of torque from as low as 1,400 rpm. Matched to a six-speed automatic gearbox, This MPV races from naught to 100km/h in 8.7 seconds, before clawing its way on to a top speed of 201 km/h. This comfortably places the Grand C4 Picasso as one of the zippiest “budget” MPVs out there.

Step inside and one would be greeted by a bagful of goodies. The most eye-catching would be a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system that sits below a 12-inch digital instrument cluster(a very nice one,too). Other standard equipment comes in the form of a navigation system, 360-degree surround view system, reverse camera, dual-zone automatic climate control in front and air vents for the second (pillar-mounted dual-zone blower control) and third rows (roof-mounted single-zone blower control). The Grand C4 Picasso also benefits from an electrically-powered tailgate, and keyless entry.

The Citroen Grand C4 Picasso THP is available in Blue Teles, Noir Onyx (Black), Rouge Babylon (Red), and Blanc Banquise (White). Yes, we know. The French and their fancy names for regular colours. The good news is that Citroen have priced it at RM179,888, on-the-road with insurance and GST. This makes it RM10,000 cheaper than the previously available turbodiesel version.
