Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Citroen showed that a similar level of protection would be available to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier impact, representing a car striking the side of the vehicle, the C4 Picasso scored maximum points. However, in the more severe side pole test, dummy readings of rib compression indicated weak protection of the chest area. The seat and head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injury in the event of a rear-end collision.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing restraint to be used in that seating position. The system provides clear information to the driver regarding the status of the airbag and was rewarded. All of the types of child restraints for which the car is designed could be installed in the vehicle without any problems.

Pedestrian

The C4 Picasso scored maximum points for the protection provided by the bumper to pedestrians' legs. The front edge of the bonnet was also good in places but provided mostly marginal protection to the pelvis area. The protection provided to the head of a struck pedestrian was poor along the base of the windscreen and on the windscreen pillars but was otherwise largely good or adequate.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is standard equipment and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. A seatbelt reminder is standard for the front and rear seats. A driver-set speed limitation device is standard equipment and met the test requirements for this type of system.
