Citroën C3 Picasso gets a Code upgrade
Posted on 4 Jan 2012 at 10:13, by Gareth Halfacree
Citroën has announced a new entry into its C3 Picasso range, dubbed the C3 Picasso Code Special Edition with some impressive upgrades over the standard model.
Designed to take over from the outgoing Blackcherry special edition, the Code is based on the HDi 90 Manual VTR+ C3 Picasso with all the usual features including air conditioning, a Bluetooth 'Connecting Box' with USB socket, curtain airbags and cruise control with speed limiter.
Unlike the standard edition, however, the C3 Picasso Code includes a special Look Pack that adds Polar White or Cherry Red 17in Clover alloy wheels. There's also a choice of chrome lower bumper inserts, gloss black painted door handles with chrome inserts, Obsidian Black front and rear bumpers with matching door mirrors, longitudinal roof bars, black vent surrounds and special carpet mats.
Based on a refined HDi 90 diesel powerplant, the C3 Picasso Code promises fuel consumption of 61.4mpg on the combined cycle, while owners can benefit from free Vehicle Excise Duty in the first year thanks to sub-120g/km carbon dioxide emissions.
Available to order now, Citroën has priced the C3 Picasso Code at a £300 premium over the standard-edition HDi 90 Manual VTR+ model on which it's based for a total on-the-road price of £15,695.
