The CITROËN C4 Picasso, which will be launch in Ireland in September, has earned five stars in the EuroNCAP test.

The rating acknowledges the work put into the new MPV, particularly on safety, as well as the quality of the EMP2 platform, which is making its debut on the new C4 Picasso.

The five-star EuroNCAP score is recognition of the brand’s work on safety and the advantages of the EMP2 platform. The new C4 Picasso is the first PSA Peugeot Citroën model to be built on this platform.

The C4 Picasso scored a total 82% according to the 2013 protocol, with five-star results in the four categories of Adult Protection, Child Protection, Pedestrian Protection and Assistance Systems.

The C4 Picasso is a class-leading family car that stands out with its excellent child protection system and ultra-practical child seat attachment system.

It is available with the following driving aids - active cruise control, indexed on the speed of other vehicles; an anti-collision alert that informs drivers using visuals, sound and by tightening the seatbelt; intelligent traction control for easier handling on low grip surfaces; active seatbelts in the front seats that tighten when any danger is detected.

On top of that there is a video lane departure warning system (LDWS) that vibrates the driver’s seatbelt.
