Citroen has announced updates to its large seven-seat Grand C4 SpaceTourer people carrier, which focus on reducing the range to the more popular variants.

Though the Grand C4 SpaceTourer – or the Grand C4 Picasso as it was called before 2018 – is gradually approaching the end of its lifetime, Citroen isn’t giving up on it just yet.

So from October 2021 production, the updated Grand C4 SpaceTourer will ditch the entry-level Live trim, which was said to account for just 10 per cent of sales. It leaves the pre-existing Sense and Shine trim levels, with the latter said to account for 60 per cent of versions sold.

Standard equipment on the Sense includes 17-inch alloy wheels, a reversing camera, 12-inch HD central display and a seven-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The flagship Shine trim then adds a panoramic sunroof and Xenon headlights, as well as a range of driver assistance technology such as adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring.

The engine choice consists of a 128bhp 1.2-litre petrol option and a 1.5-litre diesel with the same power. Each is available with the choice of a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Prices for the updated Grand C4 SpaceTourer start from £28,630 for a ‘Sense’ model and £30,880 for a ‘Shine’ version.
