Citroën will introduce its new Technospace Concept at the next 2013 Geneva Motor Show (7-17 March), a prototype which is supposed to anticipate design and contents of the next C4 Picasso MPV. The Technospace Concept measures 4.43 meters in length (which wouldmake it 40 mm shorter than the outgoing C4 Picasso), 1.83 meters in width and 1.61 meters in height and offers a renewed design that affected especially the front end, with new and more slender headlights with LED technology.
The rear section received some upgrade too and is now a little wider, more ’squared off’ and with the same 3D-effect LED tail-lights as seen on several other Citroen concepts. Moreover, the Technospace Concept also introduces a bold chrome element on the C-pillar, a classy touch that adds up to its personality.
Citroen didn’t reveal anything in regard to what will be placed under the hood, but said that the Technospace Concept is based on the Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2, that will be used for all the future compact and medium cars from Citroen, Opel/Vauxhall and Peugeot, who have signed an agreement for the joint use.) and will emit 98 grams of CO2 per kilometer, which would make us believe it will eventually come with a Hybrid4 powertrain.
The French carmaker did not release any picture of the passenger compartment, just saying that there will be a high-definition 12-inch touch-screen media system in there. Boot capacity is rated at 537 litres. The new C4 Picasso is expected to take on the C-segment by the end of the current year.
