The Citroen C4 comes with a range of good engines and it has some high-tech features. However, it struggles in too many key areas; it's not the roomiest car of its type, it's not the best to drive and it's not exactly a budget choice.
It's not too bad if you pick the right one, though. The 110bhp 1.6 diesel gives great flexibility and economy, so it’s the obvious choice for company car drivers. For private buyers, we think the C4 makes most sense when it’s cheap, so we think the 1.4 petrol will suffice for most.
