Spacious cabin, big boot, good value for money
Rolls through corners, imprecise steering, dated interior
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.
