The new Citroën C4 is the perfect car for the smart urban driver
You want a car that’s practical for the family, trend-setting for the road, versatile for load-carrying, and economical on fuel. The new Citroën C4 is all of this and more.
In typical French flair, the dashing new Citroën C4 has a silhouette that evokes the svelte lines of a sports coupe, a stance featuring the muscular haunches of an SUV, and the load-carrying flexibility of an agile hatchback. It’s a car that pairs with a wide variety of lifestyles and uses, for now and into your future plans.
For the busy working executive that wants to look and feel good, the Citroën C4 plays the part of the stylish urban car to perfection. It’s not just about looks though, and once onboard, you’ll realise that the Citroën C4 has a cosseting ride quality that is like no other car in its class, thanks to its suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions®. As suggested by the name, these suspension dampers have a progressive compression ratio so that they are soft and comfortable on flat roads, while effortlessly absorbing the bumps from rough road surfaces. The result is a near magic carpet ride for the car’s occupants on the highway, but also capable of very good roadholding prowess on winding roads.
You’ll arrive at work meetings refreshed, as the Citroën C4’s luxurious, lounge-like interior features some of the most comfortable seats you can find in this class of car. The unique Advanced Comfort Seats are a major design highlight, with visible padding that is contoured for welcoming comfort when you sit. Made from high-density foam that resists sagging over time, the seats are paired with wide centre and side armrests at the front for a secure and supportive feel on even the longest drives.
The practicalities of family and active lifestyles play right into the Citroën C4’s strengths too. Despite the sleek, sloping tail, the Citroën C4 still boasts an ample 380 litres of cargo space. Children’s bits and bobs, sports equipment, a day’s shopping, there’s space in there for anything from sporty active lifestyles to family-oriented loads.
The flat loading sill allows for easy loading, and the split fold-down rear bench greatly enlarges the carrying capacity when the back seat does not have occupants onboard.
Banish that feeling of not having enough horsepower from the engine when the car is fully loaded. The Citroën C4’s 1.2-litre, turbocharged engine provides plenty of torque, even when the car is fully loaded with five occupants and a boot full of luggage. The engine has been cleverly designed to be very economical on fuel too, with an economy of just 4.7l/100km. It sips petrol like the small, three-cylinder engine that it is while cruising, then when extra power is demanded, the turbocharger gives an extra boost.
The Citroën C4 ‘s sleek SUV styling cues give it an exterior style that may suggest a rugged, outgoing personality, but it’s also packed with cutting-edge safety features. Advanced driver assistance that brings the Citroën C4 a step closer to autonomous driving include Active Cruise Control that lets the C4 follow the car ahead of you with pinpoint precision, matching its speed with a driver-adjustable safety gap. A full colour head-up display shows you all important information without requiring you to look down at the instrument cluster. Other active safety systems that will help feek your family and friends safe while on the move include Lane Keep Assist, Active Safety Brake, and Collision Risk Alert with Post-Collision Safety Brake that holds the car in place after an accident.
If you’re the sociable type, the Citroën C4 will definitely win approval from your buddies with its trendy, sleek styling and room for five. A wireless smartphone charging dock on the centre console operates separately from the Citroën Connect Play that is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay interface, so one device can be quick charging while another is effortlessly screen mirroring on the car’s main high definition full colour display screen. Read messages, pick songs from your playlist, navigate to that new restaurant that you’ve just read about, it’s a fully connected car for the connected you.
Does your passenger need another connected screen to keep up to date on social media or find something online while on the move? Bring your own tablet! A unique sliding drawer above the glove box is specially sized to fit a digital tablet. The tablet can be clipped securely into the Citroën Smart Pad Support®, a custom holder factory-fitted to the passenger side of the dashboard.
You’ll find the Citroën C4 to be a car that’s as versatile as the driver and occupants that it carries, with all the accoutrements that will fit different owners, whatever your style may be. It’s a different car for a different driver, and there’s no better way to experience it than to test drive one yourself. Find out more at Citroencars.sg/C4 now!
