A powerful SUV feel with its characteristic and ground-high design
While the design of the new C4 reveals a characteristic Citroën image, it displays a more modern look with the details applied. Thanks to the big wheels, the imposing and muscular details as well as the protective covers that rotate 360 ° around the body, the new C4 evokes a powerful and at the same time solid SUV feel. Looking at the new C4 from the front, a modern interpretation of the design that started with works such as Citroën's CXPerience Concept, Ami One Concept and 19_19 Concept and continued with the new C2020 in early 3 draws attention. In the architecture in question, the double-layered front design with a V-shaped light signature and the chrome brand logo running along the front bring a unique look. In the most up-to-date application of the architecture, the ends of the brand logo extend sideways and include daytime running lights. Thus, the headlamps consisting of LED daytime running lights and three LED modules with LED “Citroën LED Vision” headlight technology are visually highlighted.
The high and horizontal bonnet adds to the powerful look of the new C4. The front bumper with a matte black bottom insert provides resistance to minor impacts. Macro chevron patterned air intake grilles used in Ami One Concept and 19_19 Concept show the attention to detail. The roof spoiler, which physically integrates with the body, together with the unique roofline of the New C4 and the sloped rear window, emphasize the aerodynamic superiority of the car. The sloping roof line, which includes the three windows and integrates it with the lighting units, refers to the legendary Citroën GS. The rear of the new C4 completes the overall dynamism and robustness of the car with its design. The large loading opening created by opening the tailgate provides access to a large 380-liter trunk. The rear with its curved rear window, upright tailgate and spoiler is inspired by the design of the C2004 Coupé introduced in 4. It continues the design language of the front with the new C4 V-shaped LED stop design with lighting units connected by a glossy black strip.

Comfort expectations are covered under four main headings
The Citroën Advanced Comfort® program, which guides the design and development of cars belonging to the Citroën brand, reveals a new and modern way to reach the concept of comfort. In this direction, the new C4 handles the Citroën Advanced Comfort® program under four main headings in order to meet the expectations of drivers who need different requirements.
- Driving comfortcreates a cocoon effect by isolating the driver and accompanying passengers from the outside world in terms of both suspension and noise comfort.
- Living comfortmakes life in the cabin easier and enjoyable with its large living area, practical storage areas and smart solutions it offers.
- Peace of mind comfortorganizes and prioritizes information to display only the truly useful information, creating a relaxing interior atmosphere. In this way, it reduces the mental workload of the driver.
- Comfort of use, optimizes the car and its equipment with intuitive technologies, offers ancillary equipment that facilitates daily use, and streamlines the bond between passengers and the car with digital solutions.
Flying carpet effect in new Citroën C4
The new C4 is on the road with the Progressive Hydraulic Assisted Suspension System® suspension as standard. The suspension system used in the C5 Aircross SUV models offers a superior level of comfort, which the brand defines as the "flying carpet effect", apart from its superior decoration dynamism. This innovative technology, exclusive to Citroën, aims to increase the damping quality of the suspension system that the brand customers care about. The Progressive Hydraulically Assisted Suspension System® also reveals the latest in the Citroën brand's expertise in the field of suspension. The brand has been providing customers with advanced suspension comfort solutions for more than 100 years. Unlike conventional systems, the Citroën Progressive Hydraulic Assisted Suspension System® system has two hydraulic stoppers on both sides, one for damping and the other for back pressure. The suspension thus works in two stages depending on the applied stresses. In light damping and rebound situations, the spring and shock absorber control vertical movements without the help of hydraulic stoppers. Thanks to the flexibility provided by these stoppers, the effect of flying carpet is created in the car, which gives the feeling of gliding on rough ground. In much more intense working environments, the spring and shock absorber work together with hydraulic damping and rebound stopper to reduce vibration. Unlike the traditional mechanical stopper, which absorbs energy but presses back some of it, the hydraulic stopper absorbs and distributes this energy. So the system does not tab.
New C4 removes boundaries in connectivity technologies
The new Citroën C4 also makes life easier for drivers with up-to-date connection technologies. In addition to the 4-inch touch screen on the new generation C10, the wireless charging feature for smartphones, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and Connect Play turn the journeys into enjoyable moments by meeting the technology needs of drivers. In addition, three USB sockets in the vehicle, two in the front and one in the rear, ensure that both the driver and other passengers are constantly connected. On the other hand, Citroën's new C4 model has "Citroën Smart Tablet Support®", which will allow the front passengers to travel with pleasure. The smart folding carrier system integrated into the front console allows tablets from different brands to be securely fixed. Thus, the passenger can use the tablet while driving. The sliding drawer is positioned on the dashboard facing the passenger and allows a tablet to be stored.
16 new generation driving assistance systems
As with the new generation Citroën models, the new C4 is also equipped with 16 new generation driving support systems that increase driving safety and driving comfort. All these systems constitute an important step on the road to autonomous driving. Driving support systems such as Emergency Brake System, Collision Warning System, Blind Spot Warning System, Active Lane Tracking System, Adaptive Cruise Control System, Highway Driver Assistance System, Driver Fatigue Warning System, Driver Attention Warning System, Traffic Sign and Speed Plate Recognition System It supports driving safety. Electronic systems such as High Beam Assist, Keyless Entry and Starting, Color Head-Up Display, Electric Hand Brake, Rear Camera and 180 Degree Rear View, Hill Start Assist and Cornering Lighting System provide a more comfortable ride. However, thanks to the Emergency Call System (e-call) feature used for the first time in Citroën, the location of the vehicle is automatically transferred to the emergency officer in case of an emergency.
