A ride into the future

Introduction, Exterior


On a daily basis, we are used to seeing the conventional multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs) cruising our roads, with most of their designs looking rather plain like any other sedan.

There is, however, one particular make that stands out in terms of design, especially for the MPV line. From technology, innovativeness, and design, it doesn’t exactly win other competitors, but yet still manages to stand out.

Yes, that’s the all-new Citroën C4 Picasso.


One look at the new Picasso sets it apart from other MPVs you would get in the market. The front facade of the Picasso puts across the facial expression of a squinty-eyed smile (or some might unfortunately describe it as a face that is about to sneeze), defined by its huge frontal intakes.

To add on a touch of sophistication, Citroën has extended its trademark chevron logo past its LED daytime running lights. While it might be common for headlamps to be located below running lights, the Picasso is perhaps the first we see bearing a separate headlight assembly from the running lights above it.

The futuristic look of the Picasso doesn’t end there. The 4.42 metre carrier stretches out proportionally, compared to other MPVs and even its own predecessor that had a uniquely long overhang.

Out at the rear, the Picasso’s LED tail lamps are incorporated fully within the tailgate, allowing for greater accessibility – which came in extremely useful when we were loading luggages.

SwiftQuote helped me get the highest possible price for my car, when many dealers around were low-balling me. Very impressed with their response time and how fast I managed to sell my car. The dealer that bought my car was also very genuine and it was a fuss free process, 10/10 would recommend.
