New Citroen MPV for Gadget Show

New Citroen MPV for Gadget Show

Citroen's latest high-tech multi-purpose vehicle is being showcased at this week's Gadget Show.

The seven-seat Grand C4 Picasso provides space, economy and versatility, according to the car maker.

To encourage motorists and passengers to "stay connected", the MPV has an array of gadgetry, including a 12" panoramic HD display screen and 7" touchscreen.

The HD screen has a function which can give the driver an all-round view of the outside of the vehicle, or "360-degree vision", which could help avoid anycar insurance claims if potential obstacles or danger are seen early enough.

The car also features a device called Park Assist to help slot it into tight spaces, and luxury seekers can opt for massaging front seats and a mechanised footrest on the front passenger side.

The Grand C4 Picasso is on public display at The Gadget Show Live @ Christmas in Earls Court, London from Friday November 1 to Sunday November 3, where around 150 technology companies will showcase their latest products, from television sets and tablets to games consoles and cameras.
