    My car

    I bought the new C4 after owning the original style C4 for over five years, completing well over trouble-free 80,000 miles. The old C4 was economical, comfortable, reliable, stylish and well-equipped.

    The new C4 is more economical and just as if not more reliable but lacks the original C4's bold styling - the big central speedo and fixed steering wheel centre have gone. It's gone main stream and hard to distinguish from boring Astras and the like.

    The spec of the VTR+ has changed - in come DRL, fog lamps linked to the steering/trafficators at night, folding mirrors, bluetooth, USB/iPod link, an improved display for the radio and trip computer and reversing sensors but out go auto-lighting, auto-wipers, climate control and the extremely useful shopping pull out in the boot.

    The conversion to RHD is just the same - the wipers and handbrake are still set for a driver on the left - but there is now a key hole in the driver's door.

    I've had the car for over a year now. The initial road tax was "nil"; this year it's £20.

    The 12,500 mile service was a fraction over £200 at the supplying dealer's workshop, and there has been nothing out of order during that time to trigger a warranty claim.

    MPG has not dropped below 56mpg, and 64mpg is regularly achieved over a tankful in hot weather.

    The seats are firm and comfortable, but not up to the armchair standards of the original C4 VTR+, but it feel tauter and lighter when driving along.

    mpg not what they say,at 58mpg overall.Musn't grumble as previous Citroen-a 1980's BX19 TRS petrol auto,could only manage 22mpg. Overall a magnificent piece of design and engineering.A pity it's not British,but after my woeful Rover sterling 2.5 auto it's no wonder Rover went bust

    My car

    The new Citreon C4 hatchback from my point of view is a very good car except for the car being to heavy and is missing somethings to keep up with the performance. It needs a 6 speed gear box on the 1.6 120ps and also a bigger engine because there is a delay in pick up at higher speeds. The car also needs to be reved a lot more which means less economy which is not good. One good point to make is if you want a spare wheel, normally it comes with a can of foam and compressor but there is an option which you can buy a space saver or even a full size spare wheel to fit into the well. When your sat behind the wheel of the car it is lit up like a star ship but can get a bit boring after a while. It has a long 5th gear stretch too from the 3rd or 4th gears and a bit noisey that is why it needs the things listed above. The ideal person for this car would be a retired person or a woman who has a family and doesn't care about image of the vehicle. Not a bad vehicle just needs to some alternations.
