The Grand C4 Picasso does more than just fetching seven people in comfort - it gives us a heads up on how space travel could be like.

We are at the dawn of an era when commercial space travel is turning into a reality. Soon, before this decade runs out, we can buy a ticket to the mystic world, one which has been out of reach to all our forebearers.

But unless you are a multi-billionaire who's willing to fork out a huge sum of money, you probably wouldn't stand a chance at all, not to mention that you may actually need to get in line and wait for your number to be called even if you have the moolah.

Citroen may, then, be the saving grace, for the French automaker has sniped at the chance to show us how space travel could possibly be like.

Almost every part of the car feels futuristic, including the 'Robocop-lookalike' daytime running lights

Meet the Grand C4 Picasso - the French's latest seven-seater space wagon (pardon the pun). The visionary design means it could very well be the next best thing to space travel.

Exterior

Even when it retains the classic proportions of an MPV, the Grand C4 looks as though its designers had an overdose of sci-fi shows, or probably just woke up from a futuristic dream in the year 2055.


The glass greenhouse occupies a large portion of the MPV, giving it a clean, yet sophisticated feel. The 'floating roof' design also adds a touch of elegance to the sizeable people mover, while looking cutting edge at the same time.

The clever use of LED at the rear also helps create a distinctive and charismatic light signature that seeks your attention both in the day and at night.

17-inch rims may not be the largest in the market, but that doesn't stop it from reeking of stylish French flavour
