Is it a family hatchback? Is it an SUV? Is it a coupé? The Citroën C4 is something of a difficult beast to pin down. Looking at the shape, you might view it as a coupé SUV in the mould of the BMW X2, but it’s priced to go up against the likes of the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf and SUVs such as the Skoda Karoq. In a world where more and more cars are looking to cut a sporty dash, the C4 stands out by going for comfort and convenience, with its Progressive Hydraulic Cushion suspension standard across the range.

The Citroën C4 was unveiled in 2004. The engine line-up was updated in 2008 to comply with Euro 5 standards, and Citroën made changes to the bodywork and interior at the same time. The second generation landed in 2010, and saw the French marque pivot to a more conservative design. In 2019, trim levels Touch Plus, Feel Plus and Flair Plus were introduced, replacing the previous Touch Edition, Feel and Flair hierarchy. The third generation arrived in 2021, with the model rediscovering its stylish roots. Trim levels were revised again to Sense, Sense Plus, Shine and Shine Plus.
