NEW C4 PICASSO & GRAND C4 PICASSO RIP CURL LIMITED EDITION
Citroën and Rip Curl are today unveiling the Rip Curl limited edition on the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso. The two models convey the values of sharing and adventure upheld by the two brands. Following the C4 Cactus Rip Curl limited edition revealed in 2016 and the SpaceTourer Rip Curl Concept presented at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, the new limited edition models mark a fresh step forward in the partnership focused on stylish, contemporary and high-tech products. The second-generation C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso have proven a great success, appealing to over 500,000 customers with their remarkable design, comfort and spaciousness. They are now available in a limited edition fully in step with its times, conveying a spirit of freedom and adventure, in addition to the assets of the very attractive “Live” trim level. The C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso Rip Curl are available to order now, starting at €27,500 for the C4 Picasso and €28,700 for the Grand C4 Picasso.
The C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso ranges, developed in coherence with the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme for more warmth, spaciousness and travelling well-being, are being enhanced with the reveal of a limited edition co-created by Citroën and Rip Curl, a world leader in surf. By once again joining forces with Rip Curl, whose name alone has evoked the world of surf since 1969, Citroën is boosting the spirit of adventure of the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso with an expressive and singular version for lifestyles focused on relaxation and adventure. That philosophy is completely in tune with the Rip Curl brand, founded in Torquay, Australia.
Driven by their shared values of creation and innovation, the two brands also share the same enthusiasm for adventure (which Rip Curl refers to as "The Search", or the quest for the perfect wave), encouraging customers to journey off the beaten path. The collaboration gains its full meaning on the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso, friendly and family-oriented cars combining style, comfort and spaciousness that gain more character and style with the Rip Curl limited edition through a choice of colours and materials setting them apart from the regular range.
Based on the “Live” trim level, the Rip Curl limited edition adds a 12-inch panoramic screen and ups the ante on connectivity technologies with the Citroën Connect Nav navigation system, the Mirror Screen and the Citroën Connect Box Emergency and Assistance system. This equipment underscores the high-tech nature of the C4 Picasso and Grand C4 Picasso. The limited edition also adds the following to the “Live” trim level:
Outside, even more contrast and style:
>> A special Rip Curl sticker on the front doors featuring the brand's original graphics,
>> 17" Zephyr diamond-cut black alloy wheels,
>> Chrome side signature on the C4 Picasso,
>> Roof arches on the Grand C4 Picasso,
>> Onyx Black door mirror housings,
>> Onyx Black exterior door handles,
>> Dark-tinted side and rear windows.
Inside, more modularity and warmer, energising materials:
>> Sliding seats in row 2 on the C4 Picasso (already available on all versions of the Grand C4 Picasso),
>> Stripe Grey cloth seats with the Rip Curl logo,
>> Dune Beige harmony on the dashboard and door panels,
>> White gold with laser etching door handles,
>> Front and rear protective mats with Dune Beige braid and the Rip Curl logo.
Five body colours are available: Soft Sand, Lazuli Blue, Cumulus Grey, Platinum Grey and Polar White. The C4 Picasso is available with an optional Onyx Black two-tone roof.
