Citroen Xsara Picasso (2000-2010) Review and car model by car model running costs.


The Citroën Xsara Picasso is a family friendly compact MPV that arrived in the UK in mid 2000. At the time of its debut in the UK it came with a choice of just two trim levels LX and SX, and three engines, a 1.6 and 1.8 litre petrols, and a punchy 2.0 Litre HDI diesel engine.

In late 2000 the Exclusive trim level was introduced to the UK market next was the Desire in 2003 then in 2004 the model was face lifted with minor modifications. A new 1.6 HDI diesel version was launched as part of the revised range.

The rear seats can all be removed to create extensive loading space, it has plenty of cabin room and three individual full size seats in the back with under floor storage.

The Picasso may not be the most sophisticated people carrier around but it is still one of the most popular, and with its full size seats in the rear and huge boot it is ideal for children and long journeys. It has generous levels of standard equipment and a resonable price tag.

For: Spacious interior, huge boot,  economical HDI engine1.6 HDi can do 55mpg,good value for money.

Against: Some quality problems. Rolls through corners, dated interior.
