Brisbane show: Citroen C4 HDi goes luxo
Diesel small-car luxury reaches new heights as Citroen launches C4 2.0 HDi
6 Feb 2008
CITROEN Australia launched a six-speed automatic, 2.0-litre turbo-diesel version of its C4 small hatch in Brisbane, but rather than being an entry-level oil-burner the C4 2.0 HDi is claimed to take performance into the luxury market sector.
Priced at $35,990, the newest diesel-powered C4 is powered by the same 100kW/340Nm engine as seen in the C6 luxury sedan and C4 Picasso people-mover, which are both more popular as diesels.
In the C4, the new HDi engine provides 0-100km/h acceleration in a claimed 10.4 seconds and can return fuel consumption of just 5.1L/100km, providing a potential touring range of more than 1000km.
The C4 HDi 2.0 shares its trim and equipment level with the C4 2.0 petrol variant, and on top of the garden-variety C4 1.6 HDi specifications alloy wheels, body-coloured door-handles and mirrors, a rear lip wing, leather-clad steering wheel, a five-CD stacker in the front armrest, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, velour seat trim, sual-zone climate-control, auto headlights, centre rear armrest, door sill and footwell lighting and chrome interior features.
A full leather interior with heated and powered front seats, as well as front/rear parking sensors, are exclusive C4 2.0 HDi options.
