GENEVA – Feb 8, 2013: With the Xsara Picasso, C4 Picasso, Grand C4 Picasso and C3 Picasso, CitroŽn has built a real success story by asserting itself as one of the leaders in the compact MPV segment. Since 1999, the brand has sold almost 3 million Picassos. Now CitroŽn is entering a new phase in the sector by revealing the CITROňN TECHNOSPACE concept, which points to the brand’s future compact MPV that will be released from the second half of 2013.

A demonstration of CitroŽn’s ‘Crťative Technologie’, the new concept ushers in a new era with:

  • A record CO2 emissions level of 98g/km, achieved thanks to the new Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2), which features efficient architecture and minimises weight.
  • Multiple technologies for enhanced comfort, including a full-touch driving interface with a high-definition 12’’ panoramic screen.

  • Previously unseen proportions that combine compact size (length: 4.43m/width: 1.83m/height: 1.61m) with standard-setting interior space and class-leading boot capacity (537 Litres VDA).

  • Strong, expressive design with dynamic lines and high-tech headlamps complemented by 3D-effect tail lights inspired by the latest CitroŽn concept cars.

    The concept will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show.
