Improving the C3 Picasso's environmental credentials, the 1.6 HDi 16V 90 hp diesel engine has been re-homologated and, in VTR+ and Exclusive trim, now emits 119g/km of CO2 (down from 125g). Consequently, both of these C3 Picasso models are now classified in VED band C - meaning an annual road tax reduction from £120 to just £35. Even more significantly, these models now deliver an extra 2.7 mpg on the combined cycle, bringing the new figure to 62.8 mpg.
Also on VTR+ and Exclusive -as part of a new option pack- an integrated Bluetooth hands-free system has been introduced, so drivers can safely and easily keep in touch when they are on the move. This new option also includes a built-in USB Box and socket, which allows users to connect a portable MP3 player directly to the car's audio system. Menu navigation and music selection is managed via the steering-mounted and dashboard radio controls, with song titles displayed on the radio screen.Citroën C3 Picasso available from 2009
