Even seriously tall drivers will have no issues with head- or leg room, while the bright and airy feel gives the impression there’s even more space than there actually is.
The wide door pockets are easily big enough for large bottles of water, and you’ll find two more stowage areas on the centre console – one between the front seats and another beneath the touchscreen. Both of these have lids, so are ideal for keeping valuables out of sight.
You’ll also find two cupholders on the centre console, although these are positioned quite low down, so it’s a bit of a stretch to reach your cup of coffee. It’s also a pity the glovebox isn’t bigger, and what space there is inside is a rather awkward shape.
The front doors open wide and because the seats are high, it’s easy for large people, or those with limited mobility, to enter or leave the vehicle easily.
Citroën C4 Picasso rear space
There are three individual seats in the back, each of which has enough leg-, head- and shoulder room to allow a six-footer to get comfortable. The flat floor is another bonus, because it means the person sitting in the middle doesn’t have to straddle a raised tunnel.
It’s a pity there isn’t a bit more stowage space in the rear cabin, however. The door bins are tiny, and you won’t fit much in the nets on the backs of the front seats. However, Flair models come with handy cubbies in the floor, along with foldable picnic tables on the front seat backs.
Again, the rear doors open wide, making life easier at arrival and departure times.
Citroën C4 Picasso seating flexibility
The rear seats can be reclined or folded flat independently of one another, and on Exclusive models and above the seats can also be slid back and forth to either give rear passengers more knee room or free-up boot space.
The Picasso has more conveniently positioned Isofix mounts than most of its rivals, too, and because all three rear seats are an equal size (some rivals have a narrow centre seat) you'll have a good chance of safely carrying three young children in the back.
The front passenger seat can also be folded by pulling on a lever, which means you can carry seriously long items; planks of timber or even a reasonable-length ladder will fit.
Citroën C4 Picasso boot space
With the rear seats folded flat you get a decent-sized boot (1851 litres) that’s long enough to take most pushchairs lengthways. The load bay is also flat, with no annoying steps or ridges to get in the way of loading and unloading.
With the rear seats in place the boot holds 537 litres, which is respectable for the class. The boot opening is also low enough to make loading heavy items relatively easy, plus there’s no boot lip, so you can slide your luggage straight in and out.
Top-spec versions have a hands-free powered tailgate. All versions have lashing points, a rear parcel shelf and a handy, retractable load cover.
