CitroŽn is combining practicality with a new performance edge for the CitroŽn C4 range with the launch of the CitroŽn C4 VTR five door, which combines a manual gearbox matched to the two litre 103 kW engine in the C4 for the first time along with a sporting equipment package.

"With the launch of the CitroŽn C4 VTR we are providing equipment and trim packages that clearly focus on the different customers for the manual and automatic versions of the C4 with the hatch with the 2.0 litre engine," explains Miles Williams. "The typical customer for the manual C4 will be one that wishes to have a more sporting focus for the car, in both equipment and trim, while the automatic C4 is more centered on luxury."

Externally, the key difference for the CitroŽn C4 VTR is the use of the same 17 inch 'Resolfen' alloy wheels and deep front bumper and air dam from the CitroŽn C4 Coupe VTS, while inside the front sports seats are fitted with sports upholstery, boasting greater levels of lateral and thigh support; the steering wheel is fitted with a stitched leather sleeve and carbon fibre-effect trim is used on the centre console and around the chrome plated gear stick.

These additional equipment features compliment the already comprehensive equipment package fitted to the CitroŽn C4 hatch with the 2.0 litre 103 kW engine. This includes front and rear electric windows, remote control central locking with remote headlight operation, speed sensitive power steering; cruise control and speed limiter; ABS brakes with ESP, EBD and EBA; climate control air conditioning with split settings for the front seat occupants; automatic wipers and headlights; electrically operated door mirrors; automatic dipping rear view mirror; automatic rear wiper; multi function trip computer; centre front armrest; Digital audio CD system with CD stacker and speed sensitive automatic volume control.

The new C4 VTR also has, of course, the unique design features that has enabled the C4 to collect awards for its advanced design, such as the fixed hub steering wheel, the innovative pedestrian safety system and the unique instrument display panels.

With a manual five speed gearbox and the 2.0 litre 103 kW engine, the CitroŽn C4 VTR has a top speed of 208 km/h and it can despatch the dash to 100 km/h in 9.2 seconds and the standing kilometer on 30.3 seconds. EU standard fuel consumption figures show that the CitroŽn C4 VTR will achieve an open road average fuel consumption rate of 5.8 litres per 100 km. The combined average figure is 7.6 litres per 100 km.

Priced at $29,990, the CitroŽn C4 VTR slots into the CitroŽn range above the 1.6 litre versions of the C4 hatchback and Coupe at $25,990 for the manual versions of the Coupe and hatch and $27,990 for the automatic 1.6 litre hatch. The automatic 2.0 litre hatch is $33,990 and the range is completed by the advanced Turbo-diesel C4 HDi at $29,990 and the range topping C4 Coupe VTS at $36,990.

"With the CitroŽn C4 VTR we have provided much more than just a C4 2.0 litre hatch with a manual gearbox," explains Miles Williams. "CitroŽn has provided an equipment package that meets the expectations and requirements of an owner who prefers a manual gearbox and which makes the CitroŽn C4 even more desirable!"
