PARIS – Feb 19, 2014: The all-new CITRO╦N C4 Picasso has been shortlisted for the prestigious WORLD Car of the Year award in Europe.

Out of the 30 candidates the CITRO╦N C4 Picasso is one of seven cars nominated by the Jury as the most outstanding for the 2014 final competition.

The seven cars will be intensely tested at the finalist test drive day on February 18th at the CERAM Mortefontaine test track near Paris. The announcement of the World Car of the Year 2014 will take place at the eve of the Geneva Motor Show, on March 3.

As part of the overall World Car of the Year award, the CITRO╦N C4 Picasso is also a finalist in the World Car Design of the Year award.

“Short listed as a finalist in the design and overall categories for Picasso is proof that this is a generational leap for people movers in design and technology,’’ says Citroen Australia National Marketing Manager Manuel Tyras.

``More than 1000 people have test driven the car and more than six million kilometres have been driven on the platform before release.

``Being named a finalist is a reward for all those involved in its development.’’
