The new Citroen C4

18 November 2010

The new Citroen C4


With attractive, sculpted lines; impressive build quality; and an array of original upmarket features and functions, the new CitroŽn C4 is a perfect balance of confidence-inspiring styling and useful, convenient technologies.

Specifically designed to meet the needs of mid-size 5-door hatchback retail customers and business users, new C4 is robust and versatile; driver-focused, yet impressively comfortable; and is charged with a real ĎPositive Powerí - thanks to efficient CitroŽn engineering and an environmentally considerate range of powertrains.

Like the new CitroŽn C5 in 2008, and the new CitroŽn C3 in 2009, new C4 is further evidence of CitroŽnís know-how and creativity in designing efficient, stylish, innovative and safe vehicles with Ďreal worldí practicality.    

New C4ís distinctive profile and balanced proportions give a clear impression of strength and stability.  Defined and flowing surfaces, such as the purposeful front end and rear spoiler, hint at the modelís optimised aerodynamics.  Chrome detailing combines with dynamic headlight styling and sculpted alloy wheels for a sophisticated and impressive road presence.

Fractionally larger than its forerunner, new C4ís compact external dimensions - 4.33m (l), 1.79m (w), 1.49m (h) - conceal generous internal volumes with spacious accommodation for all occupants; built-in versatility and practicality; and a class-leading boot volume of up to 408-litres VDA.

The high quality of new C4ís interior finish is immediately apparent from the tactile soft-touch material on the top of the one-piece dashboard and the generous amounts of chrome around the dials and vents.  This is a car created to deliver a supremely satisfying on-board experience as well as long-term durability.

An environmentally respectful car, the new C4 uses the latest CitroŽn technology to reduce its ecological impact. With CO2 emissions from just 109g/km, the new C4 is one of the most ecologically-conscious models in the segment and all diesel models qualify for free VED in the first year. 

A Gear Efficiency Indicator - standard specification on all manual models - signals the optimum moment to change gear and encourages economical driving.  A focus on controlling new C4ís overall weight and the use of 15% Ďgreení materials add to the new C4ís environmental credentials.

New C4 is powered by an extensive range of refined and efficient powerplants - three BMW co-developed petrol engines and four efficient HDi diesel units.  Power output ranges from a refined 90hp to a punchy 155hp.  Automatic, 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual and 6-speed EGS transmissions are all available.  

CitroŽnís innovative micro-hybrid e-HDi drivetrain is available with the HDi 110 engine and EGS transmission, which delivers CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km - reducing to 99g/km on future models.  A combination of several environmentally considerate technologies - including a second generation Stop & Start system with regenerative braking - e-HDi helps to improve fuel efficiency by up to 15% in city driving conditions, with CO2 emissions reduced by around 5g/km.

One of the safest vehicles in its class, new C4 has been awarded the maximum 5-star Euro NCAP rating, including a 97% score in the ĎSafety Assistí category - the highest score for any vehicle of its type. 

Arriving in the UK in January 2011, the new CitroŽn C4 will be offered in three well-specified trims - VTR, VTR+ and Exclusive - and is attractively priced, starting at £15,595, rising to £21,495 for the range-topping 2.0HDi 150hp Exclusive.  Prices are inclusive of VAT at 20%.
