The 2022 Citroen C4 high-riding hatchback is now on sale in Australia, priced from $37,990 before on-road costs.
One highly-specified variant of Citroen’s new small SUV challenger is offered locally, with just two optional features (not including colour).
Tipping the scales at 1269kg, the new C4 measures 4355mm from nose to tail, 1800mm wide, stands 1525mm tall, and sits on a 2670mm wheelbase.
A 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine sends 114kW/240Nm to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.
This allows the 0-100km/h sprint to be completed in a claimed 8.5 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 210km/h. Combined claimed fuel consumption is rated at 6.1 litres per 100 kilometres.
Inside the cabin, all five seats are trimmed in black leather and, unlike an increasing number of small cars, physical dials for volume and temperature are retained.
A ‘universal tablet holder’ is integrated into the dashboard panel above the glovebox, however this is only compatible with the seventh generation iPad and Samsung Galaxy A6 – larger frames can be optioned for approximately $150.
For $1490, a retractable glass sunroof can also be added.
Infotainment comes via an 10-inch touchscreen compatible with Apple CarPlay, while a 5.5-inch digital instrument cluster sits behind the steering wheel.
With the rear seats upright, a 380-litre boot offers reasonable luggage space for the class.
In the safety department, six airbags are fitted as standard, as is Citroen’s full active driver assistance suite comprising autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, active lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and driver attention alert.
LED headlights and a head-up display system are included on all Australian-delivered cars.
Goodyear tyres wrap around 18-inch alloy wheels – with a space-saver spare wheel – and disc brakes at all four corners of the car provide stopping power.
Polar White is the only no-cost paint option. Six other colours – Iceland Blue, Pulse Orange, Elixir Red, Steel Grey, Platinum Grey, and Obsidian Black – can be optioned for $690.
