Product Overview

Citroen C4 III (chassis code C41) is an affordable compact crossover in production from 2020. It is powered by either tiny ICE engines of 1.2L I3 petrol and 1.5L I4 diesel flavors or a tiny electric motor aided by a battery capacity of 50kWh.
Compared to the Mk2 C4, the C4 III became a "coupe" crossover, making it more distinct from the Peugeot 208 II. The latter is probably a better car, even though it is horrible itself.
The official fuel economy rating is exceptionally rosy, though it may cast more doubts on the trustworthiness of the regulators and perhaps the owner's own sanity than it relates to reality.

External Reviews


Reviewer score 54% (normalized by Neofiliac)
Reviewers from autocar have found:
The Citroën C4 sits on the PSA Group’s smaller family car platform, which means you get a choice of an internal combustion engine or a battery-electric vehicle powertrain. The C4 is 4.35m long, so not huge for a car in the Volkswagen Golf class. It has 134bhp and a 0-62mph time of 9.0sec, but step-off always feels brisker than brisker.
  • Sleek styling
  • Lots of standard equipment
  • Decent range
  • Lack of practicality
  • Not the most fun to drive

Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
The Citroen C4 is a good family hatchback, but not the best option for those prioritising practicality, efficiency and a degree of driving fun. Its funky coupe-crossover styling will attract some buyers, but once past the C4's stylish veneer it's clear that it will struggle to compete with the very best in class. Prices for the combustion-engined C4 range start from just over £21,000.
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent standard kit
  • Lack of practicality
  • Average interior quality

Reviewers from carmagazine have found:
On the motorway, the Puretech 130 is nice and calm, with a murmur of engine and a trickle of wind. There's sufficient front-end grip and the steering is accurate, but at urban speeds, it feels a bit light and slow off-the-dead. The Hype Black interior on top spec Shine Plus cars feels more sober German premium car than charismatic Citroën.
  • Stylish styling
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent infotainment system
  • Lacklustre petrol engine
