All new Citroen C4 and E-C4

Citroen in Ireland has just announced details of their all new C4 and E-C4. The C4 sits in the C-hatchback segment but French marque says that it offers much more than the traditional hatchback thanks to best-in-class height, ground clearance, seat height position and interior legroom versus competitors.

With claimed similar dimensions to some B-SUV competitors, Citroen boasts that this C4 reinvents the hatchback segment and acquires true crossover claim. It is available in petrol, diesel and all electric. It is now on sale from €24,740 for the petrol entry-level ’Feel’ model, (the similar specced diesel range starts at €26,790 ) and both come as standard with a 5-year warranty, three years roadside assistance and is available with 1.9 per cent PCP and HP finance.

The E-C4 is the first fully electric passenger car available from Citroen in Ireland and offers a promised 350km WLTP range. Buyers of this model can also avail of a free home charge point when they switch to Energia thanks to a new initiative launched by the French brand here.

Offering the claimed best-in-class height (1,525mm ) and ground clearance (156mm ), Citroen says that the C4 also offers best in class driver eye height (1,220mm ) for improved visibility and ease of access. Thanks to its large wheelbase (2,670mm ), the company says that the C4 also offers best in class rear knee room (198mm ) to ensure comfort for all occupants.

As with all Citroen vehicles, their ‘Advanced Comfort’ programme features suspension with ‘progressive hydraulic cushions’, and ‘advanced comfort seats.

Four USB connections are also available as standard to support charging for additional devices.

The front end of the New C4 boasts a V-shaped lighting signature which incorporates Citroen's new design standards and includes double-stage headlights with chrome chevrons stretched across the entire width of the vehicle. The bonnet, high and horizontal, echoes the concave shape of C5 Aircross SUV. The unique roof line, combined with the sloping rear window, clearly expresses the aerodynamics of the vehicle, while the rear spoiler enhances the vitality of the body shape.

This gently sloping roof and overhanging side windows is a nod to the iconic Citroen GS but also offers a design feature that allows for a generous boot volume of 380 liters. The New C4 offers a choice of 31 colour combinations thanks to 7 exterior colours options and 5 exterior colour packs. There are also 6 different interior choices and a host of alloy wheel options available to ensure optimal customisation.

On the inside, the New C4 inspires confidence at first glance through the modernity of its clean, contemporary dashboard, softly shaped door panels and soft, supple materials throughout. The 10” colour touchscreen infotainment screen which is the nerve centre of the vehicle is also standard across the range. The wide horizontal dashboard gives passengers a feeling of space and volume and there’s a chevron grain pattern on the dashboard with satin chrome (or high-gloss black ) accents.

The new C4 is paired with a wide variety of engine options including four petrol variants: a PureTech 100 S&S six-speed manual gearbox, a PureTech 130 S&S with a choice of 6-speed manual or EAT8and PureTech 155 S&S EAT8 completes the petrol range. There will also be two diesel engines, the BlueHDi 110 S&S 6-speed manual and BlueHDi 130 S&S EAT8.
