Six airbags are fitted as standard on all versions, including curtain ’bags to protect front passengers as well as those in the back.
The C4 Picasso scored relatively poor marks for adult occupant protection in Euro NCAP’s crash tests. That said, it was found to be one of the best MPVs at keeping small children safe in an accident, which is a big selling point.
Range-topping Flair models have a raft of safety assist systems, including one that alerts you if another car lingers in your blind spot. You also get active seatbelts. It’s an excellent package that makes the top-spec Picasso a safe family car. These systems are optional on Feel trim but not available at all on the entry-level Touch Edition.
All models receive a perimetric and volumetric alarm which is Thatcham Category 1 approved.
