The Citroen C3 Picasso Review 0

Today we review one of Citroen’s best vehicles available on the UK market. The Citroen C3 Picasso has a great deal going for it with many highly desirable features. Today we take a look at why the car is so great.


We start off with the element of practicality as the C3 Picasso has this in abundance. The car looks small but is in essence quite a large vehicle, a fact that is made obvious when sitting inside. The high roof creates more head room. The boot capacity can go up to a maximum 500 litres. The last row of seats can be folded down completely flat which is an extremely handy feature.


The Citroen C3 Picasso is a prime example of how the company have moved forward in terms of creating a quality type of interior. The dashboard is neatly laid out with a high class type texture. The vehicle contains a number of metallic highlights which help bring out the character of the car.


The Citroen Picasso had two petrol engines and two diesel engines to choose from. These include a 1.4 litre achieving 94 BHP and a 1.6 litre petrol achieving 118 BHP. The diesel selection includes two variants of the same 1.6 litre engine producing either 91 BHP or 107 BHP.

Every variant will come with a five speed manual as standard.

The drive

The overall drive of the car is very satisfying and comforting. The car has plenty of grip on the road. The weighted steering is a great feature with the weight gradually increasing as the car speeds up. Wind noise is kept down to a minimum as is the engine noise. You will always get a smooth drive in the Citroen Picasso C3.
