Car reviews - Citroen - C4 Picasso - 5-dr wagon range


More than just a bigger C4, Citroen’s seven-seater Picasso frames the Honda Odyssey

4 May 2007

IF YOU think the new Citroen C4 Picasso cannot possibly play hardball against the Honda Odyssey in the compact seven-seater people mover segment, then the French manufacturer suggests that you are not looking at the whole picture. While we can’t comment on the sub-$40,000 petrol version, the $45,000 HDi turbo-diesel with a standard six-speed auto delivers performance, economy and low carbon dioxide emissions, in a smart, spacious, safe, practical and attractively presented package. It makes more sense than most SUVs too. In fact, the C4 Picasso may be the most innovative affordable Citroen in years, as well as, conversely, the one with the most mainstream appeal.
Model release date: 1 May 2007 to 1 January 2015

Previous model

Citroen DS 21/23 Safari

Released: 1967
Ended: 1975
Family Tree: C4 Picasso

Citroen was a pioneer of people-movers in Australia, with the beautiful Bertoni-designed ID 19 Safari from 1961 offering a multitude of seats. The DS 21 replaced it in September 1967, ushering in an 81kW 2.2-litre OHV four-cylinder engine, tied to a four-speed column-shift manual gearbox. The latter cars wore the famous twin-headlight design boasting a swivelling ‘cornering’ light that has only just come back into vogue today. In 1973, a 92kW 2.4-litre version, badged DS 23 and featuring fuel-injection and a five-speed manual, arrived. The sleek CX sedan replaced the DS range in early 1976.
