Khodrocar - Key updates include the availability of the company’s latest driver assistance systems, revised styling, and a new sub-$40,000 entry point into the line-up in the form of the new petrol-powered variant.
The 1.6-litre turbo petrol develops 121kW of power and 240Nm of torque, sent to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission co-developed with Aisin.
Stamped with Euro 5 certification, the petrol-powered Grand C4 Picasso can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 10.2 seconds, matching the diesel, while using a claimed 6.4L/100km on the combined cycle.
Meanwhile, the 110kW/370Nm 2.0-litre turbo-diesel carries over, mated as standard to a six-speed automatic. Fuel use in the diesel is rated at 4.5L/100km, aided by idle stop/start technology.
Standard features are largely the same across both variants, meaning all models get 17-inch alloys, seven seats, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 360-degree camera system, DAB digital radio, electric tailgate, keyless entry and start, and a panoramic sunroof.
Both versions also get driver-assist tech like speed limit recognition, active lane assist, active blind-spot assist, and driver attention monitoring as standard.
The diesel ($44,490) gets a one-up on the petrol by offering autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control with stop&go function as standard equipment.
Options include 18-inch ‘Python’ alloy wheels ($690), premium paint ($800), and the Leather Lounge Pack ($5000) which adds nappa leather-appointed seat trim, driver’s seat with massage function, adjustable lumbar support and extended headrest, height and tilt-adjustable front passenger seat with massage function, electric foot rest and extended headrest, electric and heated front seats, along with LED reading lights for the rear tray tables.
