Citroen C4 Grand Picasso ... priced between $40,000 and $50,000 in NZ

Citroen C4 Grand Picasso

Citroen NZ will welcome the C4 Grand Picasso here next month by shouting out loud about the awards the people-mover has received in Europe. Chief among them is the 2013 ‘Family Car cialis generic of the Year’ gong from Britain’s Top Gear magazine. Another plaudit is the ‘Golden Steering Wheel’ from Germany’s two top motoring publications. Praise for the French seven-seater centres mostly around practicality, strong equipment levels, a fuel-thrifty drivetrain, and one of the best folding seat arrangements judges from the magazines said they had ever seen. Unusual for a people-mover, it also looks good, based as it is canadian pharmacy on the Technospace concept unveiled at last year’s Geneva motor show. It will also be competitively priced, unlike one of the very best people-movers over the years, the Renault Espace. It has been available as a right-hooker for roughly 30 years but the French continued to price it out of the NZ market. Not long ago Renault insisted on a retail price here for the current fourth-generation Espace of roughly $NZ90,000. The NZ distributor needed a cup of tea and a lie-down. The C4 Grand Picasso will be available in two variants, priced between $40,000 and $50,000. Citroen NZ general manager Simon cialis Rose won’t confirm the exact price until both are unveiled on February 27. Sales of people-movers last year accounted for 1 per cent of the NZ market, or 1037 sales. The C4 Grand Picasso therefore enters a segment that isn’t strong. However, Rose says he expects it to pinch sales from established models like the Kia Carnival and Honda Odyssey and help boost overall Citroen numbers to around cialis effects 400 units in 2014. That would work out at sales growth of 20 per cent, in step with the 20 per cent improvement (301 sales) last year over 2012. The C4 Grand Picasso is powered by a Euro6-compliant 2.0-litre BlueHDi turbocharged diesel engine delivering 110kW at 4000rpm and 370Nm at 2000rpm and mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox. Citroen claims impressive town-and-around fuel economy of 4.6 litres/100km, or 62mpg, for a C02 rating of 120gr/km. It makes other significant claims, too, like the C4 Grand Picasso having the widest boot in its category, with 1170mm of space between the wheel arches, and the longest wheelbase, which improves knee room in the second and third rows. The Grand C4 Picasso has a maximum five-star Euro NCAP rating, along with many active safety gadgets. Optional equipment includes electronic self-parking.
