Citroen has announced plans of introducing the Technospace concept at next month's Geneva Motor Show.

Those spy photos we've showed a couple of days ago were in fact this concept which serves as a preview for the next-gen C4 Picasso which will be unveiled in April after the concept's debut in March.

The concept seen in these official photos is 4430mm long, 1830mm wide, 1610mm tall, with a 2783mm wheelbase. Based on these figures, the Technospace is 40mm shorter than the outgoing C4 Picasso and has a 55mm longer wheelbase resulting in more room inside the cabin. Citroen says the concept has a boot capacity of 537 liters.

By reducing the overhangs Citroen wanted to make the car more compact, while the split A-pillars promise to offer excellent visibility. The production version will ride on Citroen's Efficient Modular Platform 2 (EMP2) and should weigh 70 kg (154 lbs) less than the current model. Combining this with more efficient power units, the next-gen C4 Picasso should have CO2 emissions of only 98 g/km in the most economical variant.
