Why Would You Want One?
Not your run-of-the-mill family hatchback, Citroen’s much improved second generation C4 aims to offer a more relevant choice in the closely-fought Focus-class C-segment. Refinement and comfort get prioritised over on-the-limit handling. While value pricing and super-low running costs get the nod over fashionable trendiness and cutting-edge electronics. The biggest changes with this updated model lie in its rejuvenated engine range, with impressive PureTech petrol and BlueHDi diesel units offering class-leading power and efficiency that put this car back into class contention. Citroen C4 finance deals can be tempting too.
Give Me the Key Details...
Visual changes made to this car at its most recent 2015 model year update include headlight units that comprise two 3D chrome-finish modules on a gloss black background, with LEDs adding a distinct light signature. The car also features chrome chevrons connecting the headlights and the ribbed bonnet curving into the sides is a neat touch. Moving aft, there are 3D-effect rear light clusters, while a few splashes of chrome and some revised alloy wheels give the C4 quite a sharp look.
Drop inside and you'll notice the 7-inch touch screen straight away, plus perhaps the quality upholstery finishes. The dashboard and fascia are quite conventional, but all of the controls are easy to figure out without recourse to the manual.
Your Citroen C4 lease quote will be based around the choice you make from a frugal engine line-up. Most buyers in search of Citroen C4 leasing opt for the 1.6-litre BlueHDi units developing either 100 or 120PS. This Citroen also offers some innovative three-cylinder 1.2-litre petrol engines that wear a PureTech badge, with the option of 110 and 130bhp outputs.
The Bottom Line
Here’s a car that goes its own way, wilfully unsporty by fashionable measurement, yet ruthlessly efficient at getting the important things right – the huge boot, the class-leading running cost efficiency. It’s also well built, decently equipped and impressively refined. And, despite all of this, it’s one of the most affordable choices you can make in this segment. For all that, it’s not a model the car magazines will tell you to prioritise in your search for a Focus-class family hatch of this kind. Even so, if you’re a typical buyer, it’s one that’ll probably suit you a lot better than they expect. Try one – and you’ll see what we mean.
