Citroen has released first details of the brand new C4.† Designed to exceed the highest expectations, the new CitroŽn C4 boasts a real positive energy - with a high level of quality, style, interior space and occupant comfort, as well as responsive handling and impressive environmental credentials.

As with the new C5 in 2008 and new C3 earlier this year, the new CitroŽn C4 demonstrates the expertise of the brand in designing stylish and innovative vehicles with relevant technological advances.

With its sculpted lines and high quality finish, new Citroen C4 cuts a distinctive profile, striking an impression of strength, stability and balanced proportions.†Defined and flowing surfaces, such as the purposeful front-end and rear spoiler, hint at the modelís optimised aerodynamics.†The tasteful addition of chrome detailing combines with the dynamic headlight styling and sculpted alloy wheels to give the new model a premium presence.

Precise control and accomplished handling, new C4ís driver focused cabin environment combines with impressive acoustic comfort and soundproofing to deliver a true impression of on-road confidence.

New C4 features compact exterior dimensions and generous internal volumes that make it spacious and thoroughly versatile.†At just 4.33m long, 1.79m wide and 1.49m high, new C4 is just 5cm longer, 2cm wider and 3cm taller than the existing model.†The 408 litre boot is the biggest in its class, with practical dimensions and a lower sill that makes loading even easier.

In addition to optimised accessibility and practicality, the new C4 offers a feeling of well-being on-board - with spacious, comfortable seating and impressive headroom.†Personal comfort in the new C4 can be tailored to suit individual requirements with users able to adjust the colour of the driverís instrument display, select their own Ďpolyphonicí sound alerts, finely adjust the intensity of the air-conditioning and even immerse themselves in the rich surround-sound of the new audio system.†Some models even come with a new massage function on the front seats.

Alongside existing range technologies, such as EGS (Electronic Gearbox System), hill start assist, automatic electric parking brake, Lane Departure Warning System and Xenon dual-function directional headlamps, new C4 will be available with convenient and useful new technologies - some of which are unique to the segment.†These include a new blind-spot monitoring system, a cornering light function, cruise control and speed-limiter with road speed memory settings, and an innovative new service called eTouch.

As well as offering on-board emergency assistance, CitroŽnís eTouch system enables drivers to monitor their driving patterns and fuel consumption, and receive advice on how to improve their fuel economy.†The system also allows drivers to consult their vehicleís technical status and monitor any necessary maintenance or servicing requirements.

Designed to be an environmentally respectful family car, the new C4 uses the latest CitroŽn technology to reduce its environmental impact.†New C4 will be available with CitroŽnís new micro-hybrid e-HDi powertrains, which feature the latest generation Stop & Start system that helps deliver CO2 emissions as low as 109 g/km at launch - and 99 g/km on future models.†Michelin Energyô Saver tyres are also specified to help achieve these low emissions and to boost fuel economy.†The control of the carís overall weight - in spite of the increased dimensions and added equipment - has been achieved using new technologies, such as laser welding, in the modelís construction.†The use of 15% Ďgreení materials - for example, re-cycled polyamide components - also enhances new Citroen C4ís environmental credentials.

The new Citroen C4 will be manufactured at the Mulhouse PSA Peugeot CitroŽn plant in France. The new model is expected to premiere at the Paris Motor Show in September. An Australian launch in mid-2011 is scheduled.
