Great 7 seater family car
We upgraded to this 7 seater car when we have 2 kids. The design is really good for the young family in details. Back seat blinds, small rear mirror and full size of middle back seat. Much more spacious compared to most similar size SUVs.
Purchased in October 2015 at Brisbane City Automotive for $54,387.00.
Sadly no longer available as a 5 seater.
I am currently averaging 5.5L/100km which is actually slightly better than the published ‘combined’ figure.......and on E10 fuel at that.
Amazing adaptability, all round comfort, fabulous vision including high seating position in a compact sedan size.
The automatic 6 speed transmission is from Toyota owned Aisin and the proven engine means one can expect solid reliability.
If only it continued to be sold new here, but that is what happens when you fail to promote it. Nobody realised it existed.
So much care put into the design. Perfect family car.
After a year of ownership, we love this car. We bought it to be able to seat three across the second row comfortably, while still having a large boot. The large boot is fantastic. The third row seats are only occasionally used. We always have one of the third row seats up to provide a partition, which we find very practical.
The features in this sub $50,000 car are amazing and only found on more expensive cars for other makes. Things like top view (birds eye view) camera, lane departure warning (tugs on the seat belt), self parking and blind...spot monitoring. The leather seats option is a smooth Nappa leather, not the corrected grain plastic leather found on most vehicles that including Mercedes and BMW. These “leathers” are leather scraps that are ground into a fibrous power and then stuck together with a plastic like adhesive. A leather texture is then imprinted onto the leather fibre matte. If you look closely enough, you will find the leather texture repeats and the surface is always perfect. This is a sign of leather fibre leather - which can legally be marketed as “leather”. The Picasso has no such thing, it is smooth high end leather that is a joy to sit in. The car drives well. For a large car, it feels like a small sedan to drive and is easy to park manually, or using the park assist. There are many well thought out features in the car that you discover as you own it - things like the individually adjustable and collapsible second row seats. Economy is excellent. We fill up the car once a month, getting about 800km from a full tank. My only gripe is the front row passenger side glove box. It is useless, being taken up by the fuse box. Really odd. Would buy another, no question. After sales support has been great too at Allpike Citroen.
Perfect family car
A very practical family car which is a joy to drive on both rural and city roads. Ours is the 2 litre diesel which is extremely frugal yet surprisingly quick. The visibility is excellent with massive windscreen and it also comes standard with a reversing camera. Very easy to manoeuvre with a tight turning circle. Seats are extremely comfortable and versatile. Only criticism is that the centre control panel can only display one function at a time.

Know better, choose better.
Love the car not so mad about the service support
Chose this car for a family of 5 (needed 3 booster/baby seats across) and occasional relative pick up and drop off tag along.
Ticked all the boxes for me:
- Diesel (good for carting weight)
- Not an SUV
- Not a an oversized people mover (relatively standard size car driving experience)
- excellent safety rating
- excellent visibility
- when not used as 7 seater excellent luggage space (throw the bikes in)
- 3 baby seats fit in
- Wife feels comfortable to drive it ...
Questions & Answers
I hear a distinct rattling sound when closing the Driver and front passenger door. Just to let you know, iam careful in not banging the door and inspite of careful handling the window seems to rattle and squeak (although it is working). Is this a familiar problem as i have had the dealership servicing it fix it twice (they oiled it once, second time they changes some motor)unsuccessfully as the problem recurs?
It is strange but usually I face the same problem after washing my car with driver side door.And after couple of hours it disappears by itself.I got Citroen C4 Picasso June 2012
Thanks for your reply. I suppose there is some definite assembly problem. Hoping to hear if a few others are seeing this or if this is one off build defect in some cars.
