Citroën Xsara Picasso (00-10) - Review

Review by David Ross on
2.5
The Xsara Picasso may not be the most sophisticated or practical people carrier around but it is still one of the most popular on the market - even with the far superior C4 Picasso available. That's mainly due to its generous levels of standard equipment and low price tag.

The Xsara Picasso may not be the most sophisticated or practical people carrier around but it is still one of the most popular on the market - even with the far superior C4 Picasso available. That's mainly due to its generous levels of standard equipment and low price tag. It's not without its strengths though. Comfortable, spacious and safe it's a decent MPV but despite revisions it still falls way behind the class leaders. It makes a good value people carrier, but it's lacks quality in most areas.

 The space is the best thing about this car, 5 people fit comfortably, and the dog. Plenty of room in the boot.
