Six airbags are fitted as standard on all versions of the Grand Picasso, including curtain ’bags for front-seat passengers and those in the middle row. Disappointingly, people in the third row are left unprotected.
The Grand C4 Picasso hasn’t been crash tested by Euro NCAP, but the regular five-seat C4 Piccaso, on which it’s based, has. It scored lower marks for adult occupant protection than the rival Ford S-Max and VW Touran. It did outscore the S-Max for keeping small children safe in an accident, although again the Touran proved even better at this.
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 Grand Picasso a safe family car. These systems are optional on Feel trim but not available at all on the entry-level Touch Edition.
