NEW CITROEN C4 REVEALED
Citroen has released first details of the brand new C4. With its sculpted lines and high quality finish, New C4 cuts a distinctive profile. Defined and flowing surfaces, such as the purposeful front end and rear spoiler, hint at the model's optimized aerodynamics. The addition of chrome detailing combines with the dynamic headlight styling and sculpted wheels to give the new model a premium presence.
New C4 features compact exterior dimensions and generous internal volumes that make it spacious and versatile. The trunk is the biggest in its class, with practical square dimensions and a lower sill that makes loading easier.
In addition to optimized accessibility and practicality, the New C4 offers spacious, comfortable seating and impressive occupant headroom.
Personal comfort in the New C4 can be tailored to suit individual requirements with users able to adjust the color of the driver's instrument display, select their own 'polyphonic' sound alerts, finely adjust the intensity of the air-conditioning and even immerse themselves in the rich surround-sound of the new audio system. Some models even come with a new massage function on the front seats.
Alongside existing range technologies, such as EGS (Electronic Gearbox System), hill start assist, automatic electric parking brake, Lane Departure Warning System and Xenon dual-function directional headlamps, New C4 will be available with a new blind-spot monitoring system, a cornering light function, cruise control and speed-limiter with road speed memory settings, and an innovative new service called eTouch.
As well as offering on-board emergency assistance, Citroen's eTouch system enables drivers to monitor their driving patterns and fuel consumption, and receive advice on how to improve their fuel economy. The system also allows drivers to consult their vehicle's technical status and monitor any necessary maintenance or servicing requirements.
Designed to be environmentally respectful, the C4 will be available with Citroen's new micro-hybrid e-HDi powertrains, which feature the latest generation Stop & Start system that helps deliver CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km at launch - and 99g/km on future models. The control of the car's overall weight - in spite of the increased dimensions and added equipment - has been achieved using new technologies, such as laser welding in the model's construction. The use of 15% 'green' materials, including re-cycled polyamide components, also enhances the C4's environmental credentials.
The New C4 will be produced at the Mulhouse PSA Peugeot Citroen plant in France and will premiere at the Paris Motor Show in September. The New C4 will be launched in early in 2011.
