Safety is a key fundamental for Citroen and the C4 Picasso benefits from being built on the same platform as the Grand C4 Picasso, which achieved a maximum five star adult occupant protection rating from EuroNCAP. ABS with EBD and EBA, ESP with traction control and seven airbags are standard on all models, while a Lane Departure Warning System and Xenon dual-function directional headlamps are also available.
To increase its family appeal the C4 Picasso offers further safety features such as a child mirror in the front, four Isofix seats, anti-pinch functions on the windows, an electric child lock system and five audible and visual seatbelt warning indicators.
The security of the vehicle and its contents has not been neglected, so to increase peace of mind the C4 Picasso is the only five seat compact MPV to offer laminated side windows, while an alarm, remote control central locking with deadlocks and automatic locking of the vehicle when in motion are also available.
Providing an optimum balance between road holding and ride comfort, the new
C4 Picasso features a redesigned running gear to take into account the needs of a five seat people carrier, as well as the availability of pneumatic rear suspension. This self-levelling suspension, available on top end models, benefits handling and safety by maintaining a constant ride height, regardless of load. It also allows the height of the rear sill to be raised or lowered independently for easier loading.
