A highly practical and versatile compact MPV, the C4 Picasso had strong competitors, however, some of its features highly differentiated it from the others: the MPV almost floated over the road imperfections, the commanding driving position was excellent and the panoramic windshield provided high visibility.
For 2016, the compact SUV became more efficient, more sophisticated, offered great space, safety and even cost effectiveness.
With a variety of engine choices, the C4 Picasso suited the most picky buyers.
A downsized 1.2-liter 3-cylinder Puretech turbo unit that developed 130 hp was more adequate for low mileage, while people looking for a more agile unit could choose between a 1.6-liter liter with 100 or 120 hp, respectively the most powerful available with the top-of-the-range, a 2.0-liter.
Slight updates were brought to the exterior design, such as the smaller lower grille and the extra chrome trim across the daytime running lights.
Behind the wheel, the dashboard was dominated by twin screen, the 12-inch panoramic HD panel replacing the normal set fo the conventional cluster gauges.
Greatly suitable for larger families, the C4 Picasso offered a proper seating arrangement with 3 separate chairs in the back. As there was no central transmission tunnel, 3 adults could comfortably sit in the 2nd row. The 3rd row of seats was designed for kids, as adults would have little legroom and headroom available.
