Introduction

What Car? says...

Most cars fit neatly into a box. Not literally, of course, unless it’s a particularly big one, but it’s quite obvious which models they’ve been designed to steal sales from, because they have the same basic dimensions, body shape, engine capacities and pricing. However, this Citroën C4 is rather harder to define.

It may be about the same size as family hatchbacks such as the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf, but the pumped up wheel arches and elevated seating are more SUV, while the curved roofline is pure coupé.

So, it’s the latest car to enter the burgeoning coupé SUV class, right? A rival to the likes of the Audi Q3 Sportback and BMW X2? Well, kind of; it certainly looks more like those models, but it’s much cheaper, being priced closer to the aforementioned hatchbacks and more traditionally shaped SUVs such as the Mazda CX-30 and Skoda Karoq.

Making it even harder to pigeonhole is the fact that there’s a pure electric e-C4 variant in addition to the traditional petrol and diesel options. And in a world where most car makers want to be seen as sporty, all C4’s are fitted with something called Progressive Hydraulic Cushion suspension, which is said to be all about delivering comfort.

In this review, then, we’ll look at whether it delivers on that promise, and tell you everything else you need to know about the car. And should you decide at the end that it's right for you, make sure you head over to Our New Car Buying service to see how much you could save on a new Citroën C4.
