Safety

Brakes

The New C4 Picasso ships with our innovative and comprehensive braking system:
- An ABS feature 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 the driver presses hard on the brake pedal
- The New C4 Picasso ESC (Electronic Stability Control) also helps you to keep the car under control even in the most difficult situations by acting on brakeforce distribution and engine speed to keep the car on course when cornering
- The ESC is coupled with an Intelligent Traction Control system that immediately brakes the drive wheels in the event of skidding

Lane Departure Warning System

Our second-generation Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) is now even more predictive to help combat drowsiness at the wheel for a safer driver. Lane departures are detected by an invisible miniature camera mounted near the interior rear view mirror using line recognition technology and digital imaging. As a driver you’ll be made aware of lane departures via vibrations in your active seat belt helping you to stay on course and stay safe.

Active Cruise Control

The active cruise control system on Exclusive+ models uses a radar mounted in the front bumper to detect vehicles in front that may be braking harshly or driving at variable speeds. Once detected, the system warns the driver and helps to maintain a constant distance from the vehicle in front by acting on the accelerator to reduce speed. Once the road ahead is clear and free from potential hazards the system will automatically return the car to the pre-selected speed - helping to keep everyone safer on the road.

Airbags

Driver and passenger safety is always at the forefront of Citroën’s Créative Technologie; it’s why the New C4 Picasso sets the highest standards of passenger and driver protection. You’ll find six airbags as standard;
- two front airbags (the deployment pressure and volume of the passenger airbag vary with the severity of impact)
- two lateral airbags protecting the throat and abdomen of passengers
- two curtain airbags to protect the heads of passengers at the front and rear

Active Seatbelt Safety System

The seat belts on both front seats on Exclusive+ models are fitted with small motors that automatically tighten the belts in the event of danger for even greater protection.

Intelligent Traction Control

Citroën intelligent traction control makes for a safer drive on hazardous and slippery road conditions. It acts by keeping the vehicle moving in snow, black ice or rain, even when as a driver you may be struggling. The system analyses a wide range of parameters (gradient of slope, road conditions i.e. snow or ice) and adjusts the slippage of the right and left wheels separately to help prevent wheel spin and getting stuck. Intelligent traction control is further optimised by Citroën approved snow tyres.
