2013 Geneva Motor Show: Citroen previews the Technospace Concept

Article by Christian A., on February 8, 2013

Citroen provides a vaguely disguised next-generation C4 Picasso as well as a new concept car for the Geneva Motor Show. The new concept car, which is named Technospace, offers a preview of the new C4 Picasso that will be revealed this April before its launch in the UK this May. This model would be the first one to be spun off the new ‘Efficient Modular Platform 2’ (EMP2) of Citroen.

Because of the platform’s lighter weight, the new C4 Picasso will weigh about 70kg lower than the existing model. This lighter weight, together with more efficient engines, will permit CO2 emissions of only 98g/km in its most efficient version. The Technospace concept has a length of 4430mm, a width of 1830mm, and a height of 1610mm, with a wheelbase of 2783mm.

This makes it 40mm shorter than the existing C4 Picasso; however, it has a 55mm longer wheelbase than the present car so cabin space will be enhanced. It’s believed that boot capacity leads the class with 537 litres. The basic silhouette of the C4 Picasso can be recognized from before but it has modified proportions because of the new dimensions.

The car has a more compact appearance because its overhangs were reduced. The outstanding visibility should be offered from the split A-pillars.

One of its more stunning design features includes the split headlights at the front. It also comes with Citroen’s new 3D-effect rear lights. The concept’s interior acquires the first application of Citroen’s new modular infotainment system, which consists of a big 12in touchscreen to control numerous interior commands.
