About the C3 Picasso

The C3 Picasso was built by the French car manufacturer Citroen as a 5-door mini multi-purpose vehicle. Showcasing first at the Paris Motor Show, it was essentially a mini MPV version of the C3 and replaced the Xsara Picasso in a bid to compete with more modern designs such as the Nissan Note, Renault Modus and others.

For the Spanish market, there were three trim levels, LX, SX and Exclusive, the former the lower priced. Sold between 2008 and 2017, the C3 Picasso featured a redesigned model for the 2012 Paris Motor Show which rolled off the production line the same year.

Citroen poured features and technology into their top line vehicle, the ‘Exclusive,’ which had roof rails, folding passenger seats for additional storage, tinted windows, leather & chrome interior, automatic windscreen wipers, rear parking sensors, pollen filter and automatic climate control.

All these new models had ABS and the capability to seat 5 people (one driver and 4 passengers). When the three rear seats were folded flat, it allowed for yet more storage and cargo space. Sharing the same platform with the Citroen C3 and the Peugeot 207 (part of the PSA Peugeot Citroen Group), the C3 Picasso had a very similar wheelbase.

There were a number of engines produced that coupled with the various transmission configurations, including a 1.6-liter VTi engine with top speeds of 117 mph and 120 break horsepower and a 1.4-liter petrol.

For the most part, the C3 Picasso enjoyed good sales but critics did flag the electricals as a problem. Suffering with issues from the lights to the central locking, these problems were attributed to the main control unit. Despite these occasionally reported problems, the C3 Picasso was widely accepted as an excellent car in its price range with a stylish aesthetic and good performance.
