Citroen revises its C4 and e-C4 line-up
October 10, 2021
Citroën UK has introduced a number of important updates to its e-C4 and C4 models which are effective from this month’s production.
The changes include a revised model line-up for the C4, improved efficiency for the e-C4 Electric in real world driving, new alloy wheel designs and new body colours.
As part of the changes, through a series of technical enhancements, the new e-C4 Electric receives improvements in driving efficiency, enhancing real world vehicle range under a variety of driving conditions. WLTP certified range remains at 217 miles from the 50KWh Lithium-ion traction battery.
Since launch, the e-C4 Electric has accounted for more than a fifth of all new C4 orders, showcasing the growing popularity of electric vehicles in the UK.
Further changes see the introduction of the innovative Citroën Smart Pad Support to the entry-level Sense trim, ensuring that all customers can enjoy this feature as standard right across the range.
Included with the support is a universal electronic tablet holder, designed to hold a variety of tablet computers. For optimum safety, the tablet holder also includes a screen filter that ensures the picture on the screen is not visible to the driver at any time. For added peace-of-mind, the passenger airbag in the latest cars has been designed to deploy over the top of the Citroën Smart Pad Support in the event of an accident.
All models in the C4 range will see changes to their alloy wheels, with lower-level Sense and Sense Plus versions moving to a light grey painted finish. Upper Shine and Shine Plus models now come with 18-inch Aeroblade alloy wheels featuring a bi-tone diamond cut finish with clear varnish, which replace the previous dark tinted design.
The Obsidian Black metallic body colour is removed from the range and replaced with rich Perla Nera Black.
In order to best prioritise the demands of customers, the new C4’s model line-up receives an update for 2022. Since launch, the C4 has sold a rich mix of upper trim levels, with over 70 per cent of sales being towards the top of the range.
In light of this, two lower mix versions have moved to a stock only position – namely C4 Sense Plus BlueHDi 130 EAT8 automatic and C4 Shine PureTech 155 EAT8 automatic. Both of these engines will remain available in the popular and range-topping Shine Plus trim.
