Refreshed Citroen C4 on sale in NZ

2009 Citroen C4

The car that uses a dancing robot to illustrate just how alive it is with technology, the Citroen C4, has been given some new technology and a fresh face.

“From its front end designed to protect pedestrians, to its fixed hub steering wheel that enables a larger more effective air bag for the driver and its robotised EGS gearbox, the Citroën C4 debuted a host of intelligent technology that has lifted safety, boosted comfort and cut emissions,” says Lawrie Malatios, General Manager for Citroën in New Zealand. “The new C4 adds to this list new, more effective petrol engines and a host of under-the-skin refinements that enable the Citroën C4 to maintain its position as a class benchmark.”

Behind its new grille are two new petrol engines developed in conjunction with BMW that lift performance and drop fuel consumption and emission levels, while subtle changes to trim, equipment and colours freshen up the Citroen C4.

Changes to the exterior focus on restyling the vehicle’s front end, bringing the C4 in line with the new looks of the recently launched C5. Its new bonnet features a more rounded, curvier design restyled the front bumper has also been revamped and the number plate repositioned.

In the cabin the rev counter has been relocated to the innovative translucent central display unit. As with the C4 Picasso, a plush grain is now featured on the dashboard and doors.

Citroën’s latest generation navigation system, NaviDrive, has also been introduced as an option, which features a hi-resolution 7-inch colour screen with New Zealand-wide satellite navigation, as well as an audio system with built-in 30GB hard drive. The system also offers a video auxiliary socket and a USB connection.

The C4 is now available with two new petrol engines — the 1.6 16v VTi 88 kW and the 1.6 16v THP 103 kW. Both units offer strong fuel economy, with significantly lower consumption and CO2 emissions.

The new Citroen C4 opens with the C4 VTi automatic at a recommended retail price of $34,990, while the same trim and equipment level with the 1.6 HDi diesel engine and the EGS six speed robotized manual is $39,990. With the Exclusive trim and equipment package, the Turbo 1.6 litre 103 kW petrol engine variant is $39,990 with an automatic gearbox as standard, while the 2.0 litre HDi Turbo Diesel and six speed automatic C4 Exclusive is priced at an RRP of $44,990.
