Car reviews - Citroen - C4 - 5-dr hatch range


Citroen's quiet, smooth-riding C4 hatch proves you can grow up without growing old

12 Oct 2011

CITROEN hopes to boost sales of its C4 line-up with the more mainstream, better value-for-money, second-generation model.

Promising plenty of features, interior space and a move upmarket compared with its radical predecessor plus price positioning in the heart of the Euro competition, the Parisian brand could have a winner on its hands – on paper at least.

But are the engineering and quality up to scratch and will the C4’s broader appeal really trouble heavyweights like the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus?

Previous model

C4 Series II

Released: March 2009
Ended: September 2011
Family Tree: C4

SENSATIONAL styling could not distance the C4 further from its dowdy Xsara predecessor.

, , Two related but visually different hatchback body shapes – a striking three-door and stylish five-door – brought a whole new set of customers to Citroen’s showrooms for the C4.

, , The cabin presentation was equally radical, with high-tech digital instrumentation and a fixed steering wheel hub that brought visual and safety advantages.

, , Yet, after all the styling excitement, there was little that translated into the utterly conventional driving experience.
