We Americans are far too self-conscious to widely adopt the immensely utilitarian MPV, opting for bloated, high-riding crossovers. In Europe, on the other hand, vehicles like the Citroen C3 Picasso are optimal for families in towns where the streets were once farm paths.
Some may look at a utilitarian vehicle like the Citroën C3 Picasso and wonder why bother sprucing it up, but Citroën begs to differ. After launching the Blackcherry edition just over a year ago, the French automaker has returned with the new Code edition you see here.
Citroën has inadvertently given back-seat drivers a powerful weapon. Well, not so much back-seat drivers... but the person in shotgun has the ability to bring everything to a screeching halt. Front-seat passengers are able to engage the brakes of the C3 Picasso.
