With the inception of the C3 an Grand C4 Picasso, Naza Euro Motors now offers a total five variants, which include the DS3, DS4 and DS5. Off the top is the Citroen C3, the marque’s best selling compact in major global markets. The C3 has tallied some 3 million units since its debut in 2002.
A little less flair than its immediate sibling, the C3 is presented with a clean look, alongside fluid design lines and stylish motifs. At the front, the compact shows off a signature front end with the recognizable chevrons on the upper grille and LED lights. The sweeping Zenith windscreen of the C3 enables ‘Visiodrive’, a new motoring experience that’s spurred by additional brightness and visibility.
The neat profile is further depicted by the deep-etched shoulder lines across the doors. When glanced at from all angles, the car’s profile is accentuated by the chrome trims on the door handles and weatherstrips. From the rear, the combination lights and chrome-tipped exhausts simply make the rear end of the C3 a little more desirable than similar compacts.
Inside, the C3 boasts a spacious interior, thanks to a larger-than-life cabin, a 300 liter boot and a myriad of storage compartments. The semi-high seats make access easy and give passengers a commanding view of their surroundings, as part of an approach focused on comfort and safety.
Other major highlights of the C3 comprise of an efficient engine, optimized drag, and a generally well-balanced chassis, suspension and braking system features.
Citroen Grand C4 Picasso: the Grand MPV of the Boomerang marque
The Citroen Grand C4 Picasso petrol doesn’t need much introduction in the line-up, with the diesel version already announced in the mid of last year. The 7-seater MPV boasts a stylish package, both inside and out. Thanks to a refreshed front end and wrap-around rear end, the Grand C4 Picasso certainly brings out a lot of ooh and ahh amongst MPV enthusiasts. Having a motorized tailgate and 3D LEDs at the rear don’t hurt the overall look of the Grand C4 Picasso either.
The Grand C4 Picasso really thrives on the inside, thanks to the loft-inspired interior that delivers an uncluttered feel and best-in-class comfort. In addition, the panoramic windscreen and large glass roof combined with a long wheelbase provide comfort and versatility for up to seven occupants. Brimming with ‘Créative Technologie’, the MPV comes with features such as a 7-inch touch screen driver interface, 12-inch HD panoramic screen with navigation system, rear view camera and massage function in driver and front passenger’s seats.
Powered by a petrol engine that complies with Euro 6 emissions, the Citroen Grand C4 Picasso is all about improved fuel efficiency and decent performance.
