About Citroen Xsara Picaso

The Citroën Xsara Picasso is a five-seater five door compact MPV produced by Citroën from 1999 to 2013.

At the time of its release, two trim levels were available, LX and SX. Later designations were ‘Desire’, ‘VTR’, and the range topping ‘Exclusive’ trim level, some with an electric glass sunroof. On all models, the front seat backs have fold down tables, and the rear seats can be removed to create extensive internal space for transportation of bulky items similar to a small van.

The model received a facelift in 2004 with updated bumpers, engines and body-coloured bumpers were made standard on all trim levels.

The model received a facelift in early 2004 with updated bumpers, engines and body-coloured bumpers were made standard on all trim levels.

The Xsara Picasso was available with a 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0-litre (automatic only) petrol engine, or a 2.0-litre (replaced by the 1.6-litre 2004 onwards) diesel engine, all shared with the smaller Citroën Xsara.

On 22 March 2007, Auto Trader reviewed the Xsara Picasso, calling it the most popular MPV in the United Kingdom, “thanks to a combination of practicality and affordability”. From 1999 to 2010, the Xsara Picasso has been assembled at PSA plant in Vigo, Spain.

Since 2001, the Xsara Picasso was produced in Porto Real, Brazil for the market in Latin America, where it was the top selling vehicle in its class for a while. The model was restyled again in 2007 in China and South America, with the grille adopting wide chrome bars.

The Picasso name was licensed from the family of Pablo Picasso, which created significant international publicity at the time of the car’s launch, as not all the Picasso family were happy with the association of the artist’s name with a car, when his granddaughter Marina attempted to sue her uncle Claude in April 1999.

Pablo Picasso was originally associated with Citroën in the 1960s when he painted a Citroën DS with “The wreaths of Peace”. (Source Wiki)
