Citroen Xsara Picasso History

The Citroen Xsara Picasso was in production from 1999 – 2010 and during its lifetime it was one of the most popular compact MPVs in Europe. It was the best selling of this class in the UK and France, as well as other European countries. When this vehicle was released in 1999 it had the same engine range as the Citroen Xsara from which this design came from.

In 2004 this vehicle had a slight makeover which mainly affected such parts as the bumpers, grille and headlights which modified the look of the front end of the vehicle. With the new modifications came the successful 1.6 HDi diesel engine. The Citroen Xsara Picasso ceased production in 2010 with some of these vehicles still selling until 2012. It was replaced with the C3 and C4 Picasso.
