Citroen is giving the C4 Picasso and C4 Grand Picasso a minor nip and tuck along with extra technology to keep up with the times.

Launched about three years ago, the C4 MPV duo is ready for its first revision which brings a slightly modified front fascia applied on both models. At the back, there's now “3D effect” taillight design for all trim levels. In addition, Citroen has designed fresh 17-inch alloys and three body paints for further customization. To spice things up, buyers will be able to order the C4 Picasso with a two-tone roof, while the larger C4 Grand Picasso has received a new Silver roof arch hue.

Stepping inside the cabin, the Picassos make use of the latest-generation 3D CITROËN Connect Nav connected navigation system which boasts a seven-inch touchscreen. It’s more responsive than the previous setup and brings extra connected services to keep you online while on-the-go. A neat feature is the implementation of Hands-Free Tailgate, so you’ll be able to open the trunk by a simple movement of the foot which will come in handy when carrying bags of groceries.

To make the cars safer, Citroen will offer the two Picasso models with adaptive cruise control (with stop function), speed limit sign recognition and recommendation, along with lane departure warning. The 2016 C4 Picasso and C4 Grand Picasso can also be equipped with an active blind spot monitoring system, active safety brake, as well as driver attention alert.

Underneath the hood, customers will be able to pick the newly added PureTech 130 S&S EAT6 which refers to a turbocharged, 130-hp 1.2-liter gasoline engine linked to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Citroen will have the two refreshed MPVs on sale across Europe starting summer.
