Citroën Ireland have announced details of their new 10th generation compact hatchback, their all-new Citroën C4 and fully electric ë-C4. It will be launched in Irish dealerships in Quarter-1 2021.
This 2021, all-new C4 marks the 10th generation of compact hatchback from Citroën and with 92 years of segment experience and a related 12.5 million compact hatchback sales globally.
The front end of the New C4 boasts a V-shaped lighting signature which incorporates Citroën's new design standards and includes double-stage headlights with chrome chevrons stretched across the entire width of the vehicle. These iconic chevrons flow into to the LED daytime running lights at the top and extend to the LED headlights at the bottom. The bonnet, high and horizontal, echoes the concave shape of C5 Aircross SUV and exudes an energetic and assertive attitude.
The roof line, combined with the sloping rear window, gives an indication of 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 Citroën GS but also offers a design feature that allows for a generous boot volume of 380 litres.
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 has a clean, contemporary dashboard, softly shaped door panels and soft, supple materials throughout. The wide horizontal dashboard gives passengers a feeling of space and volume while the chevron grain pattern on the dashboard and Satin chrome (or high-gloss black) accents on the vents, steering wheel, instrument panel and cabin controls offer a comfortable cabin experience by clearly identifying useful touchpoints.
The new Citroën C4 will incorporate the Citroën Advanced Comfort programme featuring suspension with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions and Advanced Comfort Seats.
The short front and rear overhangs combined with the large-diameter wheels and ground clearance, give the New C4 an assertive and confident elevated posture. With a long wheelbase of 2,670mm, it stands at 4,360mm long, 1,800mm wide and 1,525mm high, offering occupants increased visibility.
C4 Petrol & Diesel Engine options
The new C4 will include three petrol variants: a PureTech 100 S&S 6-speed manual gearbox and a PureTech 130 S&S with a choice of 6-speed manual or EAT8 gearbox. There will also be two Diesel engines, the BlueHDi 110 S&S 6-speed manual and BlueHDi 130 S&S EAT8.
C4 Electric - the ë-C4
The New C4 will also feature all electric drive via a 100 kW (136hp, 260Nm torque), with a WLTP range of 350 km. The 50-kWh electric motor is high-voltage 400V Li-Ion battery and comes with an 8-year 160,000km warranty. The ë-C4 will also feature regenerative braking and a drive-mode selector on the centre console for Eco, Normal or Sport modes.
