New Citroen C4: Optimal Combination of Price and Quality

09.07.2015
Citroen has expanded its line of models with two new versions of the all beloved Citroen C4

It’s been known for long, a crisis is the best time to buy a new car. Sounds strange, but this is when manufacturers continue supplying new models to the market and dealers offer discounts and specials with the vehicle (set of tyres, insurance, security, etc.). Salesmen try to attract more customers – you can get great offers in every showroom.

Changes in the economy have influenced Citroen too. The company has expanded its line of models with two new versions of the all beloved Citroen C4. Because of this model, 50% of these French cars are sold just in Russia. This was expected, because the car was made considering the special requirements of the Russian market. Its attractive appearance successfully blends with the driving features for local roads, average quality of petrol, salt for glare ice, cold weather and so forth. To determine weaknesses of its construction, the car was test driven for about 4 million km in different weather conditions and on various road surfaces, including dirt.

The New C4 is manufactured in Kaluga. Its distinctive feature is good sound-proofing, reinforced suspension, premium equipment, road clearance is increased to 176mm. The known packages of the sedan C4 will be complemented with two new ones. The Lounge and Optimum packages are being improved in order to offer greater value for customers.

In the Optimum package, the car has extra equipment among which are climate control, LED optics in the front and rear and the «City» system providing easy parking due to special sensors and the ability to fold the rear view mirror. Buying the Optimum, all the equipment would cost only 10,000 roubles. In contrast, installing this in the more modest Tendance package, costs 34,000 roubles.

The Lounge package replaced the Exclusive+, which was the most equipped model in the line. The new version has extra equipment: bi-xenon headlights and 17-inches alloy wheels. Now, the car has a start engine button; the interior is decorated with cloth and leather.

The new packages are available with 3 versions of engines: the 1.6-litre engine has 115, 120 or 150bhp model. For example, the 115bhp car has an engine with 16 valves and 150Nm of torque, achieved with 4,000rpm. The fuel consumption for the manual transmission is only 7.1 litres.

The 120bhp engine at 4,200rpm reaches 160Nm of torque. The net engine power is available at a border of 2500–5750rpm. BMW Group helped develop the engine. The level of fuel consumption is not higher than the previous version. This is the same because of changing the upward gradient of valves and phase-shifting of gas distribution.

In these versions, the largest capacity engine is 150bhp and turbocharged. The air compressor has 2 turbines, with 2 cylinders each. The pressure in the turbocharger is electronic. The effect of turbocharging is noticeable at 1000rpm.

Lubricating system is equipped with a heat exchanger on the liquid oil-based. It's controlled by a thermostat, which contributes to the accelerated oil heating and cools it at highloads. A 6-speed automatic transmission engine consumes 7.9 litres of fuel per 100km.

The minimum price for the Optimum with MT and 115bhp – 699,000 roubles. The same package, but with the 150bhp engine – 814,000 rubles. The price range of the Lounge – 762,000–901,000 rubles. So, the diverse choice of new models provides an opportunity to find your suitable car.
