Appealing to young families and older, active individuals, the C3 Picasso is an attractive package, combining stylish and bold good looks, a pleasurable driving experience, unrivalled space, adaptable storage options and value for money.

C3 Picasso buyers lead active lifestyles and need a car that will give them the freedoms of space, versatility and comfort. They are style conscious, appreciate quality design and believe that their car makes a statement about them, at the same time they are practically minded, requiring simple functionality.

They are environmentally considerate and want to limit their carbon footprint yet they still need the robust space to transport their family comfortably and safely. They are individual thinkers and not afraid to be different but they don’t want to be unconventional or weird.

As consumers they are drawn to things that express their personality – in the same way they are attracted to an iPod, they want a car that is contemporary, uncomplicated, useful and stylish. The C3 Picasso delivers on all these requirements.


The spirited Citroën C3 Picasso takes an exciting new direction in body design, blending the roomy, versatile shapes of an MPV with the quality, agility and comfort of a family hatchback.

From the outside, the C3 Picasso’s cube-like body shape, with its short overhang at the front and rear, instantly communicates the important design focus placed upon maximising internal space, whilst the smooth, rounded curves that soften the contours of the body form an expression of fluidity and purpose, and make it easy to park.

The distinctive styling of the car’s front end, with its sculpted bonnet, bold bumper design, black and silver intakes, and, incisive, high-set headlamps that extend back along the bonnet, give the C3 Picasso a friendly appearance, with the impression of a beaming smile, adding to its impishly charming character.

The vertical rear, designed for maximum boot space, and nimble city driving is characterised by the chunky black bumper and rear window that wraps around the boot of the car, blending into the light assembly.

Slightly wider than other models in the segment, the C3 Picasso has real on-road presence and it cuts a dynamic and robust appearance. The two-tone colour scheme available on the bumpers and side-rubbing strips present the C3 Picasso as an active, ready-to-go vehicle with the roof bars also hinting at its utilitarian functionality.

Citroën MPVs are renowned for their light and airy cabin environments and this new model is no exception. The expansive use of glass, which is almost continuously wrapped around the car #150; as well as over it with the optional 1.2m panoramic roof #150; hints at the bright and spacious environment of the car’s cabin, as well as the excellent all-round visibility.

Stepping inside, occupants are greeted by a light and airy interior with an immediate perception of quality and comfort, courtesy of the soft dashboard surface materials, thoughtfully considered decors and layout of the graining. The slim design of the front seats not only increases cabin room but the pronounced and inviting contours also offer excellent support and comfort.


Measuring 4.08m long, 1.73m wide and 1.62m tall, the C3 Picasso offers huge dimensions for such a small car. The innovative design of the C3 Picasso’s compact exterior and long wheelbase, create one of the biggest cabin lengths in its class spanning 1.66m #150; a rival for some MPVs in the segment above.

The C3 Picasso’s generous internal volumes mean occupants benefit from more roominess than any other model in the class. The high-set seats and use of slim seat-backs in the front optimises space for rear passengers who enjoy some of the best knee room in the class, even with the rear bench moved forward. Elbow room in both the front and rear is the best in the segment at 1.43m and 1.40m respectively.

Access to the C3 Picasso’s cabin is made easy by straighter, more rectangular doors that, because of the long wheel base, don’t hang over the wheel arches, creating a larger aperture for users to climb in and out.

Thanks to the car’s vertical rear the C3 Picasso’s huge boot is the biggest in its segment with a record-breaking 500-litre VDA aperture with all five seats in place and 1506-litres with the rear bench folded completely flat. Magnetic flaps, fitted in the backs of the rear seats, fold out to extend the flat surface between the bench and the boot floor #150; a simple but intelligent design feature.

Adding to the car’s smart versatility, the C3 Picasso also features an adjustable boot floor which can either sit level with the boot sill for easy loading or can be lowered to increase storage height in the rear. The clever boot floor also provides a hidden storage area, ideal for stowing valuable items out of sight. The three-part luggage cover, which can be used to conceal the entire boot’s contents, can be neatly stowed away when not in use in this under-floor compartment.
