Citroën has launched this special edition of its C3 Picasso mini MPV, the Blackcherry.

Based on the VTR+ model, the Blackcherry features cherry red and glossy black exterior and interior detailing and 17-inch cherry red diamond-tipped alloy wheels. Power comes from a 1.6HDi engine with 89bhp.

Priced at £15,195, standard equipment for the Blackcherry includes air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth and electric door mirrors.

Citroën has also made some upgrades to its whole C3 Picasso range, which now benefits from a full Euro 5 compliant engine line-up.

Changes to the petrol 1.4-litre VTi with 94bhp and the 1.6-litre HDi with 89bhp have improved fuel economy from 42.8mpg to 44.1mpg and 60.1mpg to 61.4mpg respectively with CO2 emissions down by 4g/km on both models.

Prices for the 1.4-litre petrol start from £12,695 and rise to £16,795 for the top spec 1.6-litre HDi.

Looks quite nice. I always thought they should've made a version like the show model from the launch, which was pearl white but with very similar red wheels to those seen here, along with red glass (which obviously wouldn't be legal!), but still, the effect was cool!

I agree this has always been a very funky and cool car and I have always liked it and this one is very very cool indeed . It is also a very clever and practical car too . Is expensive do .

These boxy designs are very popular amongst young drivers but often disparaged by older drivers. Personally, I like them; they're practical, versatile, and frugal.

I think the C3 Picasso looks great. I havent driven one, so cant really say if i would ever have one, but looking this good helps.

Black doesnt show off its best features though.

I've driven a C3 Picasso 1.6 hdi (the 90th Anniversary edition with all the bells and whistles) for just over 12 months now and it's a delight to own. practical, frugal and, whilst not pretending to be sporty, it does give a good account of itself in the traffic light GPs. It's my first Citroen and it will not be my last, finances permitting.
