Newly announced, the C4 breaks into new territory for Citroen, being simultaneous launches of the five door hatch along with a three door coupe.
The cars share a typical platform, which means a variety of four cylinder petrol and diesel engines, and the selection of sequential or manual transmissions found in C3.
A central control and instrumentation cluster within the car means easy manufacture of right hand drive versions from the car. Other radical moves include the utilization of laminated side glass, and adaptive headlamps.
Citroen see C4 like a further shift luxury but expect prices to become broadly in line with the ones from the Xsara.
