Citroën appears to have started work on a new crossover-style SUV, judging by these early spy shots.
This modified C4 Picasso is running a slightly wider track front and rear and relatively large wheels and tyres.
The company’s big MPV could provide an ideal basis for an SUV because it is already built around a platform with a high windscreen base and a raised seating position.
Citroën – like sister company Peugeot and rival Renault – has been very slow to embrace the SUV and crossover boom. In 2007 Peugeot and Citroën launched a rebadged version of Mitsubishi’s Outlander crossover, which was manufactured by Nedcar in the Netherlands.
Citroën also launched a compact crossover called the C4 Aircross in the Chinese market, but the car is not currently scheduled to be sold in Europe.
