A fresh take on the latest trends in the segment of high-volume luxury vehicles, the C4 Picasso Lounge is an attractive alternative to high-end saloons and SUVs.

Luxury without the stretch

The executive class of cars seems to be reserved for German or British marques in Europe but Citroen is making an attempt to get a foot in the door. At the Frankfurt Motor Show Citroen launched a new C4 Picasso version called the Lounge.

The Citroen C4 Picasso Lounge comes equipped with four armchairs, instead of the usual couches, each with adjustable armrests and can be adjusted in height, length and rake for ultimate comfort. The interior is wrapped in black leather with the upper part of the seats featuring light-colored lining and chevrons in relief.

The visiospace concept offers unparallelled roominess, visibility and brightness, and without sacrificing the boot volume of 500 litres. Dark tinted, laminated windows supply the occupants with privacy and optimal acoustic comfort and safety. The Lounge sits in 18 inch aluminium wheels and is powered by the HDi 138 DPFS diesel engine coupled with a 6-speed automatic or manual gearbox. Expect the C4 Picasso Lounge in Germany at the end of 2007 and in the UK in the first quarter of 2008.
