A roomy front compartment
interior layout has been reorganised to create plenty of room in the
front and enhance the sensation of well-being and space on board. The
reorganised interior features:
innovative drive station that frees up the space in the centre of the
dashboard by doing away with the usual central support console for the
gearshift control. The original drive station is combined with either
the new 6-speed electronic gearbox system or the automatic gearbox. The
gearbox controls are steering wheel-mounted, while the selector and
gearshift paddles are built into the steering column.
Air conditioning controls positioned at either
end of the dashboard within easy reach of the occupants.
comfort functions and driver aids that are all within easy reach of the
driver on the fixed-centred controls steering wheel.
A dashboard-mounted automatic electric parking
brake that does away with the mechanical hand brake between the front
reorganisation of the interior has created enough space for four large,
closed storage compartments in the dashboard, including a refrigerated
cubby that can hold one 1.5-litre bottle or two 0.5-litre bottles.
Standard-setting interior space
Picasso is an exceptionally spacious vehicle. Its architecture and
dimensions (4.59 m long, 1.83 m wide and 1.66 m high) make for a roomy
interior. The three rows of seats can comfortably accommodate up to

all three rows of seats.
is more space between the front seats than in any other vehicle in the
segment. This extra room makes it easier for occupants in the front and
rear to communicate with each other and provides greater visibility for
the occupant of the second-row middle seat, who can enjoy the view
through the panoramic windscreen.
three second-row seats are all of equal width and equipped with Isofix
points. As in the Xsara Picasso, the floor is flat for greater ease of
movement and a more comfortable seated position for the occupant in the
middle seat in the second row.
There is more leg room in the second row than
in any other vehicle in the category.
The third row of seats can accommodate two
more adult passengers, with footwells for added comfort.
The biggest boot in its category
Picasso offers an exceptionally comfortable interior without reducing
the size of the boot. The amount of boot space depends on the interior
most common configuration, with the seats in row three folded away and
the row-two seats pushed right back, the volume beneath the parcel
shelf of 576 litres VDA is the largest in its category and the distance
between the wheel arches is a full class-leading 1.17 m.
to the opening rear window, the boot can be comfortably loaded right up
to the roof and can be easily accessed even when the vehicle is parked
in a tight space.
In the seven-seater layout, boot storage space
is increased by deep, closed compartments positioned beneath the
When all the seats are folded away, maximum
capacity is 1,951 litres VDA.
Quick and easy to reconfigure
Picasso's modular design allows the interior layout to be reconfigured
quickly and easily, while keeping all the seats inside the vehicle.
The second row of seats can all be folded away
in a single movement without removing the headrests.
The third-row seating can be easily folded
away under the vehicle floor without removing the headrests.
Once the rear seats are folded, the
continuous, flat loading space in the boot stretches all the way to the
original movements of the seats allow for easy access to the third row.
The cushions of the second-row side seats are automatically lifted
towards the seat back, much like a cinema seat, by pressing a control.
The seats then slide up against the front seat-backs in a single

vehicle's comfort features have also been given special attention. No
efforts have been spared to make sure that the interior is temperate,
quiet and odour-free with:
automatic four-zone air conditioning with
individual air flow controls on the left and right in row two,
a second air conditioning system (certain
countries only) that sends air flows to rows two and three and the boot,

attention has been paid to the perceived quality of the passenger
compartment. The prestige interior materials are pleasant to touch; the
chrome and gloss black are eye-appealing; the paintwork is smooth; and
the grain of the dashboard and door panels is exceptionally fine.
Unique features for improved driveability
snug interior is combined with exceptional driveability. The C4 Picasso
features a new six-speed electronic gearbox system, coupled to the 143
bhp 2-litre petrol engine or the 110 bhp or 138 bhp HDi diesel
powerplants with particulate filters.
precise shifts of the six-speed electronic gearbox system deliver
outstanding performance and one of the smoothest drives in its
category. This gearbox also helps reduce fuel consumption by 4 to 5 per
cent and CO2 emissions by 5 g per km.
Unique features for greater ease of use
Picasso C4 is also an easy vehicle to use, with its automatic electric
parking brake, hill start assist, parking space measurement system and
an automatic filler cap.
Crammed with unique
features and exceptionally easy to use, the C4 Picasso is an innovative
new arrival on the compact MPV market.
