The Picasso is fitted with a driver knee airbag as standard. In such cases the manufacturer has the opportunity to demonstrate to EuroNCAP that the level of protection seen in the test is provided across the whole of the facia and for occupants of different weights and sizes. EuroNCAP considers some of the structures in the Picasso's dashboard to be a potential hazard to the driver's femurs as in this case Citroen chose not to present evidence to the contrary. In side impact the driver's chest lost a fraction of a point but the rounded score for side impact protection was a maximum 18. The Picasso is fitted with a seatbelt reminder system for the front and rear seats. The system for the front seats was satisfactory but the information presented regarding the status of the rear seatbelts was inadequate.
