Citroen is expanding the current C4 range in the UK with a new trim level. It is supposed to make the car more attractive and affordable. New ‘Sense’ models will sit below the existing ‘Sense Plus’, ‘Shine’ and ‘Shine Plus’ variants, with the first vehicles due to arrive in UK showrooms in May with prices starting from only £21,010.
The new ‘Sense’ variants come very well appointed as standard with 18-inch diamond-cut ‘Aeroblade’ alloy wheels, LED headlights and daytime running lights, as well as LED front fog lights with static cornering function all featuring externally.
Inside, owners benefit from a 5.5-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10-inch high-resolution touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, DAB radio, an Urban Grey interior ambience with grey ‘Chevrons’ cloth, and black leather-effect textile seats.
All ‘Sense’ models come with Citroën’s standard Safety Pack with Active Safety Brake, speed limit information, Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Attention Alert 3 and Forward Collision Warning. Also standard is a Speed Limiter with Cruise Control and Citroën’s Connect Box Emergency and Assistance System.
To provide a serene ride for drivers and passengers alike, the new ‘Sense’ models feature Citroën’s innovative Advanced Comfort Suspension system with Progressive Hydraulic Cushions, a technology that integrates hydraulic stops to better control compression and rebound. These hydraulic bump stops help to absorb the impact from major road imperfections, whilst freeing up the rest of the suspension travel to offer a smoother ride over normal road surfaces.
The Acoustic Insulation Pack is standard for improved cabin sound insulation. To make driving and parking just that bit easier, all models feature automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, as well as rear parking sensors and an electric parking brake.
Drivers have a choice of two powertrains – PureTech 100 Stop and Start (S&S) petrol or BlueHDi 110 S&S Diesel, both come complete with a six-speed manual gearbox. Both engines are new to the New C4 range, with the PureTech 100 S&S six-speed manual exclusively available in ‘Sense’ trim. With emissions as low as 114g/km of CO2 for the BlueHDi 110 S&S six-speed manual, New C4 is an excellent choice for fleet and business users with a BIK rate from just 26%. In addition to ‘Sense’ models, the BlueHDi 110 S&S Diesel powertrain is also available on ‘Sense Plus’ and ‘Shine’ trim levels.
