The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

You sit lower in the Citroën e-C4 than you do in most SUVs, but it still offers a higher driving position than hatchbacks, such as the Nissan Leaf and Volkswagen ID.3. The seat is broader and more cosseting than in the DS 3 Crossback E-Tense and Peugeot e-2008, and because adjustable lumbar support is standard across the range, it’s great for long trips on the motorway. Side support in tight bends is a little lacking, though.

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 – something to bear in mind if you have a partner with a different driving position to you. Getting comfortable is simpler in the Kia e-Niro and ID.3, both of which have a better arrangement of their driver’s seat, steering wheel and pedals.

That means you’ll need to rely on the e-C4’s visibility aids. Thankfully, all trims come with rear parking sensors and a 360-degree surround-view camera. Mid-level Shine trim adds to this with front and lateral parking sensors. LED headlights are standard across the range, unlike on the e-Niro.

Sat nav and infotainment

All e-C4s have a 10.0in touchscreen but, because it permanently displays the interior temperature settings on either side, the useable screen area is more like 8.0in. Still, the screen is mounted high up in the middle of the dashboard, so it’s easy to see and play with, and its resolution is high.
