Uncompromising on safety

We've put the best of our technological expertise into the C3 Picasso, to ensure excellent roadholding and advanced safety.

Body structure


The cabin of your Citroën C3 Picasso was designed as a survival cell to keep you and your passengers safe. If there's a collision, non-occupied crumple zones soak up impact energy through the front end to leave the cabin intact.

Static Cornering Lights


These lights really help to keep you safe. They give an extra beam of light on corners or at junctions to improve visibility and help you see any obstacles when you're driving at less than 25 mph.

Electric power steering


Your Citroën C3 Picasso comes fitted with variable electric power steering that adjusts to vehicle speed and the angle of the steering wheel.
Steering is firmer at high speeds for increased safety and lighter at low speeds for easy manoeuvring.



The Citroën C3 Picasso comes with six airbags:

  • Two front airbags 
  • Two side front airbags
  • Two curtain airbags (front and back)



Benefit from the Citroën C3 Picasso's innovative full-braking system:

  • Four disc brakes with two vented at the front
  • An ABS function that adjusts braking pressure electronically to stop the wheels locking
  • Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) that distributes braking power evenly to all wheels
  • Emergency Braking Assistance (EBA) that boosts braking power instantly when you stamp on the brake pedal



Depending on your finish, you could get the ultra-safe ESC (Electronic Stability Control) function. This makes it easier to control your C3 Picasso in the even most challenging situations:

  • It keeps the car on course if you lose grip when cornering.
  • It works with a traction control system (ASR) that immediately brakes the drive wheels if you skid.

Child safety


Children travel in complete safety in your Citroën C3 Picasso. It comes with:

  • Two Isofix seats at the back for child seats
  • A child-view mirror 
  • Power controls to lock the back doors and windows 
  • Indicators and alarms if seatbelts are unfastened at the back while you're driving

PureTech engines

BlueHDi technology

Particulate filter

Award winning PureTech engines

The PureTech family of 3-cylinder engines cut fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by around 18% compared with previous generation engines (from just 99g/km), with no trade-off in performance. These engines use cutting-edge technology and are both responsive and fuel-efficient.

International Engine of the Year was awarded in 2015, to the 3-cylinder Turbo PureTech engine.


You'll be able to choose advanced BlueHDi engines on Citroën C3 Picasso in the future.
Their technology:

  • Filters out 99.9% of diesel particulates
  • Destroys 90% of nitrogen oxide particulates

The particulate filter on Citroën C3 Picasso diesel engines helps protect the environment as it traps and burns particles from the engine. The quantity of pollutant particles is already extremely low with the HDi engine, and falls to almost nothing with the particulate filter.
