Introducing the New Citroën C4
The new Citroën C4 that you see here seemingly manages to kill two birds with one stone. First and foremost, the latest C4 is the first Citroën model to be offered as an all-electric variant, and is aptly named the ë-C4. This move comes as part of Citroën's commitment towards producing more electrified vehicles.
In addition, this new car represents an assault on the compact hatchback market, where the French brand have historically had great success spanning over 90 years.
It's abundantly clear that futuristic design principles have been implemented throughout the new C4, what with the characterful silhouette combining with the manufacturer's Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme.
Citroën's latest addition to their model line up promises to set the new standard for compact hatchbacks, and will be open for orders in Autumn 2020.
Design and Practicality
There can be no denying the innovative nature of the new C4. The body shape seamlessly combines the best traits of a traditional hatchback and an SUV, while design features, such as the LED V-shaped front and rear lighting signatures, add a touch of elegance to the equation.
What's more, the interior complements the exterior appearance with its plush materials and futuristic layout. With 31 exterior colour combinations and six ambiances available for the cabin, new C4 allows you to tailor the car to suit your preferences.
Despite its sophisticated sloping roofline, there is a generous level of head and leg room in the rear for passengers to enjoy. The 380-litre boot boasts a flat loading sill and a two-position floor for maximum convenience.
Technology and Safety
Thanks to the Citroën Advanced Comfort® programme, the new C4 offers a serene driving experience. The suspension features a system called Progressive Hydraulic Cushions®, which have been designed to iron out imperfections in the road, so that they are barely felt in the cabin.
The bright and airy interior ambiance is enhanced by the inclusion of an electric panoramic sunroof and the Advanced Comfort Seats. A 10-inch touchscreen sits within the central dashboard and offers effortless access to the car's multimedia system, navigation and air-conditioning. Voice recognition comes as standard, as does Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Driver assistance technologies highlights:
- Blind Spot Monitoring System
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go function
- Colour head-up display
- Lateral parking sensors
- 360° vision (uses cameras to create a bird's eye view of the car when maneuvering)
- Trailer Stability Control
Economy and Performance
New Citroën C4 is available with three different powertrain options: petrol, diesel, and electric.
The all-electric ë-C4 represents a first for the French brand, and can offer a range of up to 217 miles on a full-charge. Because of the electric motor's energetic nature, the ë-C4 can achieve 0-62 mph in just 9.7 seconds. The battery in the Citroën ë-C4 comes with a warranty of 8-years or 100,000 miles for 70% of charge capacity.
Available in five variations, the efficient 1.2-litre PureTech petrol engines can produce anywhere between 100 and 155 bhp. A 6-speed manual is standard on lower powered models, with an 8-speed auto having been reserved for higher specification cars.
There are two diesel engines to choose from, producing either 110 or 130 bhp. The former gets a 6-speed manual, while the punchier choice gets an 8-speed auto.
