The Xsara Picasso’s cabin has a few avant-garde features. The dash just ahead of the driver is featureless, information being provided on two LED displays in the centre console. The steering wheel adjusts for height only, resulting in a van-like driving position, while the seats could use more support.
Citroën XSARA PICASSO MPV space & practicality
The egg-shaped midi-MPV is very roomy inside, with excellent head and leg space for adult passengers front and back. Three separate seats, all with headrests, are provided in the rear. The chairs can be folded and tipped, and are light enough to be removed simply. There are 30 different storage areas around the cabin. The boot is a good size, while a folding ‘Modubox’ can be unclipped from the side of the boot and used for shopping.
