With the January sales in full swing, the shops are raking in your money faster than the bankers can claim their bonuses. We all love a bargain and when it is on something that costs a substantial sum a smile is never far away. If you are in the market for a family MPV and are very keen to get the most bang for your bucks, Citroen may have something for you. Citroën has introduced a stylish new special edition into its award-winning C3 Picasso range – C3 Picasso Code. The C3 Picasso Code, which replaces the previous Blackcherry special edition, is based on the best-selling HDi 90 manual VTR+ version, with added equipment.
Complementing the existing specification that already includes air conditioning, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, curtain airbags and cruise control, the C3 Picasso Code also features: Polar White or Cherry Red 17″ ‘Clover’ alloy wheels, black painted door handles with chrome inserts, Obsidian Black painted bumpers and door mirrors, Longitudinal roof bars and Shiny black vent surrounds.
Four body colours are available to choose from – Polar White, Cherry Red, Belle Ile Blue and Thorium Grey. The Polar White wheels are available with the Belle Ile Blue or Cherry Red body colours and add Polar White painted side rubbing strips and a white rear number plate surround with chrome detailing. The Cherry Red alloy wheels are available with the Polar White or Thorium Grey body colours and bring Cherry Red painted side rubbing strips and a Cherry Red number plate surround with a chrome insert.
The new model’s refined and efficient diesel HDi 90 powerplant returns an impressive 13.5 miles per litre (10 pence per mile) on the combined cycle and is eligible for free VED in the first year thanks to its sub-120g/km CO2 emissions. The C3 Picasso Code special edition carries an on-the-road price of £15,695, which is £300 more than the regular HDi 90 manual VTR+ version.
