Citroen replaces Picasso name with new C4 SpaceTourer

Citroen has revealed the new C4 SpaceTourer MPV, which replaces the old Picasso models in the French manufacturer’s range.

As before, the stylish people carrier will be available in five- and seven-seat guises, with the seven-seater dubbed ‘Grand C4 SpaceTourer’.

Aside from the new name badge, though, the new C4 models look remarkably similar to their predecessors.

But there have been changes under the skin, including a new engine. Despite the ongoing concerns surrounding diesel, it’s a 158bhp diesel unit, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Although not available at launch, the engine will arrive on June 1. The gearbox will also become available in combination with more engines over the coming months.

Prices for the new C4 SpaceTourer will start at £21,125, while the Grand C4 SpaceTourer will start at £23,425. In both cases, that money will buy you the basic Touch Edition model with a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a six-speed manual gearbox. In the case of the five-seat car, it’s a 108bhp unit, while the seven-seater gets a 128bhp version.

At the opposite end of the range sit the Flair models, with their 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel engines and automatic gearboxes. Until the new 158bhp engine arrives, they’re 148bhp units with six-speed transmissions. In the standard SpaceTourer, the top-spec model starts at £29,640, while the high-end Grand SpaceTourer costs £31,340.
