About the Xsara Picasso

With the capability to seat four passengers plus the driver, the Xsara Picasso was a compact 5-door multi-purpose vehicle built by the French automaker, Citroen.

In 1999 two trim levels initially entered the market, the LX and SX. After some time, it was decided that offering just two variants was a little simplistic, and so the Desire, VTR and Exclusive were born.

With several models fitted with a panoramic electric glass roof, the Xsara Picasso really took the typical family's requirements into consideration.

A number of features were installed to make traveling all the more comfortable, notably, pop-up tables for the passengers were fixed to the rear of the front seats and some models even come fitted with a collapsible shopping trolley in the boot.

Citroen was praised for the Xsara Picasso's aerodynamic styling and ‘sleek appearance.’ 29.7 mpg was achieved in the earlier models with 112 mph registering at top speeds. A number of engine variants were sold, 1.6-liter, 1.8-liter and 2-liter petrol with one 2.0 liter diesel, all of which shared components with the Citroen Xsara.

AutoTrader hailed the Xsara Picasso ‘the most popular MPV in the UK,’ attributed to its largely practical and affordable reputation.

The vehicle's name caused some issues, where Citroen had followed the correct legal routes and purchased the license to use the name ‘Picasso,’ not all members of the family were happy about this decision. The artist Picasso’s granddaughter attempted to sue her Uncle Claude (the gentleman responsible for securing the deal with Citroen) over the decision. All of which created a great amount of press and ultimately free advertising for Citroen. It could be suggested that Citroen decided upon the name due to a previous association in the 1960s. Picasso (the artist) created a piece of work entitled ‘The Wreaths of Peace’ which was painted across one side of the classic Citroen DS.

Taking over from this model were the C3 Picasso and the C4 Picasso, based on the C3 and C4 platforms respectively.
