C4 SpaceTourer replaces Picasso 02 | 05 | 2018

    CITROEN HAS RENAMED its C4 people carrier models for 2018. And not only do the models get new names, they also now come with new technology, plus the option of a new BlueHDi diesel engine. The new engine goes on-sale at Scottish dealerships on June 1 with prices starting at £27,550 for the five-seat C4 SpaceTourer, with the seven-seat Grand C4 SpaceTourer priced at £29,250.  (Related; Scots giant expands with Citroen)

    Out goes the Picasso badging, to be replaced by the newer SpaceTourer name. That means the range now includes a C4 SpaceTourer and the Grand C4 SpaceTourer. Both sit neatly below the nine-seater SpaceTourer minibus.


    A new ‘Safety Pack’, standard fit on Flair models, is also now available on both cars. Citroen’s Active Safety Brake set-up —which enables automatic emergency braking at speeds up to 49mph — plus traffic sign recognition and a driver attention alert warning system, are all included in the pack.


    Both models are now also available with the new BlueHDi 160 diesel four-cylinder engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Later in the year, the new eight-speed gearbox will be available with different engines

    Citroen’s BlueHDi 100, 120 and 150 diesel engines, plus a spread of petrols including three-cylinder PureTech motors and four-cylinder THP units, are also available in both new models.


    Entry prices for the mildly updated C4 SpaceTourer start at £21,125. This gets you the Touch Edition with a 108bhp PureTech 110 petrol engine, linked to a six-speed manual gearbox. Fitted with the same trim level, but a more powerful 128bhp PureTech 130 petrol, the larger Grand C4 SpaceTourer enters the market at £23,425.
