What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Diesel models are really economical, and all have a great safety rating and unique styling

Against Instruments are hard to read, controls are badly positioned, and it's only average for practicality

Verdict The C4's styling is unique in its class, but the cabin is narrow and the boot is average

Go for… 1.6 HDi SX 5dr

Avoid… 1.4 16v LX 5dr

Citroën C4 Hatchback
  • 1. Safety is a strong point, with electronic driver aids and six airbags
  • 2. There have been five recalls, so check all the necessary work has been carried out
  • 3. Check the speed limiter and cruise control systems for electrical glitches
  • 4. On high-mileage cars, check the cabin trim, which has proved fragile
  • 5. Avoid the 1.4-litre petrol engine - go for the 1.6 instead
