The Citroen C3 Picasso boasts seamless curves throughout its headlights, bonnets and huge sweeping screen, with chunky flanks and a sheer, ultra practical tailgate. This car doesn't just look original; its interior space is also ingeniously uncluttered. Its stylish deep windows flood every inch with natural light, making this is a brilliant and practical place to travel.
The interior is shaped and detailed to comfort everyone who uses it. There's generous space for five people and the front seats have carefully shaped bolsters and high backs to locate you perfectly. They even have raised bases to create extra foot room for rear passengers. These seats are so versatile, creating seemingly endless flexibility and space options. Fold the front passenger seat back flat and you can accommodate long loads of up to 2.41 metres! With the back seats in the rearmost position, you get 386 litres of luggage space and 500 litres with the seats forward. Once the seats are completely folded, the space rockets to an impressive 1506 litres. The C3 Picasso can perfectly accommodate your life, no matter what shape or size it happens to be.
Safety features don't stop there, with standard ABS and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD). Combined with Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) and automatic hazard warning light activation, this car provides a formidable safety package in an emergency. Additionally, the Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) senses any loss of grip or stability to help control skidding.
There is a choice between three petrol engines (VTi 95, VTi 120 manual or VTi120 EGS6) which all perform excellently whilst producing lower emissions. The choice of two diesel engines are both 1.6 litre units with a 5 or 6 speed manual gearbox. Both feature the Diesel Particulate Filter System for the cleanest possible exhaust gases. The HDi 90 manual produces a mere 112g/km of CO2 emissions. With the 115hp engine, the turbo can produce 'over boost' for a quick surge of extra power – perfect for safe overtaking or avoiding trouble.
