Launched in 1999, the Xsara Picasso opened up the compact MPV market to Citroën, which spawned a long line of models that have become important. While the MPV market is currently sluggish, an Xsara Picasso crosses the million mile mark in the United Kingdom !
A few weeks ago, Citroën presented the oli concept, a vehicle that it aspired to be sustainable, capable of being rented over fifteen years. However, the brand has already done better with an Xsara Picasso which has just taken a record in the United Kingdom by showing itself to be the most durable car since it has crossed the bar of one million miles traveled.
This performance allows the Citroën Xsara Picasso to top the list of the most sustainable vehicles in the UK in a publication issued by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA). The agency depends on the UK Department for Transport which carries out driving tests, approves people who can be driving instructors, carries out tests to ensure that trucks and buses can drive safely, carries out roadside inspections of drivers and vehicles and monitors vehicle recalls. In its systems, it stores information, in particular on the mileage of the vehicle. The DVSA has just revealed the Top 10 cars, still in circulation today, and having traveled more than 750,000 miles, Top 10 of which the Xsara Picasso takes first place.
Also note that in the Top 10, Citroën places a second car, a C3, which is also approaching the million Miles covered. Citroën is, along with van manufacturer Maxus and Range Rover, the only brand to have two vehicles in the Top 10.
