Spyshots: 2014 Citroen C4 Picasso Interior Revealed
Under Peugeot's leadership, they've somewhat controlled their French temperament and have become a bit German. Take the C4 compact hatchback for example. It used to have a steering wheel center that stayed in place when you moved the wheel and a back end that looked like the Louvre museum's pyramid. But the new one launched in C4 is as civilized as a Volkswagen Golf.
For the past two years, Citroen's craziness was bottled up and contained, until it finally exploded all one car. What car? The Picasso of course, a car named after a guy who helped invent cubism.
The new C4 Picasso, seen here completely undisguised in Sweden, has the headlights underneath the daytime running lights, and extra pair of windows and the looks of the porcupine. And you know what? We still love it.
The car seen here is basically identical to the Technospace concept just shown in Geneva. It's 4,430mm long, 1,830mm wide and 1,610mm high, relatively compact but also quite tall.
There aren't many surprises Citroen can pull with the powertrains, but heaven knows some of their smaller engines need a lot of refining.
But the most revealing information these spyshots provide us with regards the interior of the next C4 Picasso, seen here for the very first time. The craziness is back!
Instead of a conventional speedometer and rev counter, the digital display is back and has been placed in the middle of the dash, just like on rival Renault Scenic. The steering wheel is from the regular C4 but the center instrument cluster has changed and incorporated a very large touch screen, about 11 inches in size.
