Expert Rating

Citroën C4

(2021 – present)

    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. As of June 2022, the C4’s Expert Rating sits at 67% based on 22 reviews, which is several below the class leaders. Its electric sibling, the ë-C4, currently sits four 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

    Overall score: 4 stars
    Date tested: May 2021
    Read the full Euro NCAP review

    Adult protection: 80%
    Child protection: 83%
    Vulnerable road users: 57%
    Safety assist: 63%

    The Citroën C4 was crash-tested by Euro NCAP in May 2021 and awarded a four-star safety rating. In most areas the car performed well, although not as well in every test as the best performers, hence the four-star rating. The main concern of testers was that the autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system did not recognise pedestrians well enough in all scenarios.

    This rating score also applies to the ë-C4 electric model.

    Eco rating


    No eco rating

    As of June 2022, the Citroën C4 has not yet been lab tested by Green NCAP.
