CITROEN XSARA PICASSO 1.6 HDi Desire 5dr (Review date: 15th December '12)
I gotta say it..
The 1.6 desire diesel is super economical on fill ups and road tax too. I removed the rear seats easily and it takes a very good load. it moves along nicely when you've built up power, which doesn't take too long.
If your main concerns are economy and space
get one.! There will be no driving thrills here,
But i cant really fault it on practicality.

CITROEN XSARA PICASSO 1.6i SX 5dr (Review date: 20th November '12)
We baught this car in 2001 it was only 18 months old one pre owner with a full service history.
sinc then we have keep up the history cam belt has been change and this car has been well metain and look after.
it drives well, Ideal for family pic nic, a good size boot, food + drink tray in the back for children you can remove the 3 rear seats to get a very large bot this car is great I love it we never had any problem with this car.
But Remember one thing about any car you must keep up the service and mentainance and this car wil never let you down.
Since I buy this car in 2001 It never let me down yet.
excellent secondhand car
CITROEN XSARA PICASSO 2.0 HDi SX 5dr (Review date: 21st October '12)
I bought this six months ago as a main agent p/t out autotrader, bought without seeing it, it had 97k on the clock full history cam belt change at 80k, it has been faultless not a sports car so not quick,it pulls very well, im doing over 50 mpg even around town, i went looking for a towbar found one at a scarp yard, he informed me parts were easy to get and not badly priced,so I intend to run the car for at least 18 months.
I suggest looking round for a full history one with alloys and toys but with a cam-belt change,go for a bright colour, silver beige it looks better, there are hundreds so take time look around,
Be aware of tax bracket it's £121 for six months add that into buying, other then that, and parking can be difficult enjoy I am
Surprising reliability for a Citroen...
CITROEN XSARA PICASSO 2.0 HDi SX 5dr (Review date: 4th August '12)
I bought this car as a family car. It's so common that parts are cheap and available. We since have a new family car so this is a car for just me to commute to work in. I've removed all three rear seats and that has saved me about 75Kg in weight. The car now does 50+MPG easily. That's more than my workmates Honda Civic Hybrid. The car has done over 180K miles with very few problems, clutch, bulbs, flywheel etc. It's rubbish to drive and the handling is rubbish but who cares when the car costs so little to run and has the space of a van.
good family car
CITROEN XSARA PICASSO 2.0 HDi SX 5dr (Review date: 13th May '12)
bought the picasso for the wife to ferry our thre kids about as they all have child seats it has loads of room in the back so no problem, the 2.0 hdi has loads of power for pulling the load when going on holiday, even if a bit noisy on the motorway. no rev counter is a pain but you get usd to this. good on juice we got about 50mpg on a good run,had no engine trouble but watch for problems with front springs and bushes etc, over the 3 years we owned it i had to spend about £400 on repairs so quite happy . overall not a looker but a good solid family car with loads of room for passengers and luggage.
Not a looker but great value space and fuel economy.
CITROEN XSARA PICASSO 1.6 HDi 92 Desire 5dr (Review date: 16th February '12)
I approached the search for a new car based on price, space, fuel economy and mileage. My other choices were an Astra, or Focus but trying to find one of these which is just under three years old at a good price without 100K on the clock is impossible. (by the way it is the same engine in the Focus) So, approach this car from this angle and think of it as a van with windows (all the rears seats come out) and you won't go far wrong. Seats are not as good as Mondeo, but are ok! Just adjust that lumber support right up. It also regularly returns 65mpg on a run and 56 round town. Noise wise engine is a bit boomier than my old Mondeo but road and cabin noise is low. Cambelt change is100k plus. Engine won't win a drag race but is quicker than you would think. Bit of body roll, but it is not a sporty car.
Great family car, nippy, nice shape - very happy!
CITROEN XSARA PICASSO 1.6i Desire 5dr (Review date: 5th February '12)
I thought this car may be too big for me to drive daily, but I have found it to be ideal for myself and 2 young children to do the school and nursery runs, get me to work and do a big shop. The kids easily get in and out, there is lots of space inside and I found the boot is massive! Interior is attractive, handy dash telling you how many miles you have left in petrol.
It's economical on petrol, smooth drive and quite nippy - more than expected!
I like this car as it doesn't look huge and bulky from the outside as some people carriers do, but inside has the space you need.
I recommend this car for a family with 1 or more kids.
So far no con's!
Love my Picasso
CITROEN XSARA PICASSO 1.8i 16V SX 5dr (Review date: 23rd January '12)
I recently bought a 1.8SX Picasso, what a brilliant little MPV this is.
For practicality it up there with the best, lower the back seats and you've basically got yourself a small van, which trust me can come in very handy when buying white goods.
Driving position is also very good you sit slightly higher than you would in a car ,giving you slightly better view of what ahead of you, but viewing from the sides is poor to say the least.
Reliability is also good had no problems from either the engine, or the eletrics, just the usual wear & tear items like brakes tyres ect.
Overall if you want a cheap reliable MPV then the Picasso is worth a look.
Lovely family car
CITROEN XSARA PICASSO 2.0i 16v Desire 5dr Auto (Review date: 20th January '12)
This is a brilliant family car for its size, if you need something more spacious but don't want a 7 seater this is ideal. Has 3 proper seats in the back, very spacious and huge boot. Drives lovely although not very economical, high road tax and fuel costs but to be expected from a 2ltr engine!I love it though, feel very safe with my two young children in it.
