Citroën C4

Our unique Expert Ratings combine scores from 25 of the top UK motoring websites to give you a definitive rating on every new car

Expert Rating

Summary


The Citroën C4 is a medium-sized family car, which was unveiled in late 2020 and arrived in the UK in early 2021. It’s similar in size to a Volkswagen Golf or Ford Focus, although it’s more a liftback than a regular hatchback, and rides a bit higher like an SUV/crossover. So it’s certainly a bit different to its competitors.

Unusually, the C4 is available with a choice of petrol, diesel or electric power. This page only covers the conventional fossil-fuel models, and we have a separate page for the electric ë-C4 version.

The initial reviews for the new Citroën C4 have been generally positive, although not quite as strong as for the leading rivals in its class. Being a brand new model – which was launched during a global pandemic – it will be be a while before we see a complete set of full UK reviews for the new C4 range. As such, its Expert Rating may shift up or down by a few points in coming months.

As of August 2021, the C4’s Expert Rating sits at 65% based on 19 reviews, which is several below the class leaders. Its electric sibling, the ë-C4, currently sits three points higher. The C4 range has been praised for its comfort and distinctive design, which is notably different from anything else in the mid-size family car sector

Safety rating


Independent crash test and safety ratings from Euro NCAP

No safety rating

As of March 2021, the new Citroën C4 has not been crash tested by Euro NCAP. Testing was halted during the first half 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and has been gradually resuming since Autumn 2020. Once the C4 has been put through its paces by Euro NCAP, we will publish the results here.

Eco rating


No eco rating

The Citroën C4 has not yet been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP. As yet, very few new cars have been tested for environmental impact by Green NCAP, and inevitably the testing programme was halted in early 2020 by the coronavirus pandemic. If and when the new C4 is assessed by Green NCAP, we’ll have the results here.
