Radical change

This is a completely undisguised prototype of the upcoming 2013 Citroen C4 Picasso.

Looking a lot different than the outgoing model, the new generation of the C4 Picasso features rather unique split headlamp and turn signals clusters, a look which makes us think of the Nissan Juke but with a better design.

It also sports the firm's latest double chevron grille and has a beefy chrome frame running around the edges of the three large side glasses, while the less innovative back has Volkswagen Golf-inspired LED taillights.

The new C4 Picasso will ride on the EMP2 platform (Efficient Modular Platform 2) developed by PSA Peugeot Citroen which makes use of high-strength steel, aluminum and composites. Thanks to this change, the new model could be 154 lbs (70 kg) less heavy than its predecessor.

I cannot believe that the same designer created the front and the back part. Ugly! The previous model was much better.

Apart from the MkVI Golf LEDs on the rear lights, Citroen has been inspired by their own DS range of designs and the headlights are nothing short of a revolution for an MPV!

I have honestly a lot of respect for Citroen's bravery but I'm not sure I'd buy one of these

Ah I'd say a relief from the old design. The front is something new, the rear isn't. This is why I can appriciate french cars; they have the guts to come with radical designs and inventions. It's only a pitty that they often don't get the credit they deserve, while often pretty boring styled german cars sell. Nomather how ugly.

Citroen does it again, quirky, funky and out of this world! Polarising but damn gutsy design, dare I say it's the best looking MPV!

Honestly? None of you noticed the differences between the third and fourth pictures? The numberplate and the lights are different, not to mention the sudden vanishing of that chrome line on the bottom... This is all fake

i must say it's very very different...it would take sime accomodation, but it's definitelly something..they switched places for the lights...low/high beam is in the bumper, and the parking lights (aka DRL's)are now up high...juke style

Oh gosh, people, you are so narrow-minded, this car is extremely innovative in terms of its design and I would undoubtedly call it the best looking minivan of all-time. I cannot understand how one can appreciate the C6's styling and despise of the new Picasso. When it comes to the taillights, I would say they resemble more these of the DS5 than any of Audis

Easy to see Citroen went for Juke-like originality with this design. Different, if a bit awkward.

f...ff..uu... Hideous little car! But you know, you have to give Citroën some credit: when you make such boldly beautiful cars such as the C6, you're bound to fail sometimes. This is one of these times.

this is a terrible photo shoot notice the different pattern in rear lights notice how the front number plate looses its wee badge. citroen would not design such a mess.
