Citroen C4 Picasso Five Seats | Part Three

Citroen Picasso

Citroen C4 Picasso

The C4 Picasso is particularly remarkable for the vast expanse of glass that surrounds it, creating a light and bright environment for all onboard. The wide angle panoramic windscreen is the biggest in the class and rises up and over the heads of the front seat occupants, providing a field of vision that is double that of a standard MPV.

The slim design of the windscreen pillars combines with the large quarter light windows and panoramic windscreen to ensure that the C4 Picasso offers the best driver’s visibility of any five seat compact MPV.  Assisted by the kinked wave in the waistline the C4 Picasso also offers rear passengers the best visibility in the sector, while the huge optional panoramic sunroof allows even more light to pour in from above.

Artificial light also has a key role to play, with the availability of up to 30 different light sources onboard.  These range from an innovative rechargeable boot light that doubles as a hand-held torch to subtle strip lighting in the doors, headlining and dash.  There are door bins that are automatically illuminated when a hand is placed inside and door mirrors housing welcome lights, which bathe the ground with light when approaching the vehicle at night.
Passengers in the rear row benefit from three individual, full size, sliding and tilting seats - a rarity in this sector – as well as a flat floor and class-leading knee and elbow room. The inventive seat design allows the rear seats to be quickly and easily folded flat by pulling on the straps at the side of the seat base, all without removing the
head restraints.

With all five seats in place, Citroen’s new compact MPV heads the category with up to 605 litres of boot space underneath the luggage cover. This extends to a maximum 1,734 litres to the roof when the rear seats are folded flat.

To enhance practicality, Citroen has created a completely new version of its unique Modubox removable trolley especially for the C4 Picasso.  Introduced in its original form on the Xsara Picasso, this new folding, wheeled trolley comes with a soft canvas bag, which can be insulated, making it easier to divide boot space and to transport objects away from the vehicle.
