The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

You sit lower down in the Citroën C4 than in most SUVs, but higher than in the BMW X2 or conventional hatchbacks such as the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf. Meanwhile, the seat itself is cosseting on motorways (adjustable lumbar support is standard across the range), if a little lacking in side support for cornering.

Some of our testers found that it took quite a bit of fiddling with the seat height and steering wheel before they felt totally at ease, which is worth bearing in mind if you and your partner have different driving positions and will both be driving the car.

All trim levels get automatic wipers and bright automatic LED headlights to increase visibility at night. Shine trim takes that one step further by adding automatic main beam control.

Sat nav and infotainment

All Citroën C4s have a 10.0in touchscreen mounted high up in the middle of the dashboard. It's not as user-friendly as the rotary controllers fitted to the X2 and Mazda CX-30 but it has a more intuitive operating system than the touchscreen in the Toyota C-HR.

You get a long list of infotainment features, including a DAB radio, Bluetooth and voice control, while the presence of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto means you can access your phone’s apps via the car’s screen. Sat-nav with live traffic alerts joins the roster if you step up to Sense Plus trim, while wireless smartphone-charging is standard on range-topping Shine Plus cars.
