The Citroën Xsara Picasso was a 5-door compact MPV produced by Citroën from 1999 to 2010. The model was facelifted in 2004 with modifications to the front and rear design, changing from black bumpers to colour-matched paint with bright-inserts and painted sidestrips, known as Picasso 2. From 2007 a new shape was introduced, known as C4 Picasso.
At the time of its release, two trim levels were available, LX and SX, with a choice of three four-cylinder engines; a 1.6 and 1.8 litre petrols, and a 2.0 Litre HDI diesel engine, all shared with the smaller Citroën Xsara. A new 1.6 HDI diesel version with improved fuel efficiency was launched as part of the revised range in 2004.
Later designations were 'Desire', 'VTR', and the range-topping 'Exclusive' trim level, some with electric glass sunroof, was introduced to the UK market in late 2000. 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.
