Economy and styling tweaks announced for Citroen C4

Published 10 December 2014

Revisions to the Citroen C4 have been announced, with updated styling, interior tweaks and new, more efficient engines among the key changes. The updated C4 is due in Spring 2015 and should cost from around £14,250.

Styling changes are fairly minor, with new headlights the most noticeable difference. These feature new LED running lights, while at the rear there are 3D-effect tail lights similar to those seen on the DS3 Cabrio. The majot changes are under the bonnet, however 

1.2-litre PureTech petrol engines with 110 or 130PS will be offered, alogn with 1.6-litre BlueHDI diesel engines with 100PS or 120PS. The three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines are familiar from the Peugeot 308 and are frugal, with economy of up to 60.1mpg and emissions of 110g/km.

The diesel engines are designed with economy in mind too, using the latest technologies including AdBlue injection to lower CO2 and particulate emissions. Fuel economy is up to 78.5mpg for the BlueHDI 120PS, with emissions of 95g/km - meaning free road tax.

A seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system is the most important change in the cabin. This offers navigation, along with Bluetooth for both phone calls and streaming audio. Other changes include new seats with the option of a massage function, plus keyless entry and start.

Safety technology is the same as before, with systems like blind spot warning, lane departure warning and hill start assist available.

Final pricing details and an exact on-sale date are to be announced, but don’t expect any major price changes - the current car costs from £14,240.
