With more than 20 million vehicle registrations in 2011, the compact saloon market is the biggest automotive segment in the world, representing almost one third of all worldwide passenger car sales.

Exuding positive energy, just like the Citroën C4, this visibly prestigious and elegant car offers all of the brand’s characteristic qualities including a range-topping finish, an exceptionally relaxing ride and standard-setting onboard comfort.

With elegant and dynamic lines, highlighted by light signatures at the front and rear, all occupants can enjoy the pleasures of first-class travel, thanks to a quiet and refined interior. The lounge-like rear compartment is the direct result of model’s long wheelbase, with wraparound seats, backrests inclined to 29° and headrests designed for added comfort. Innovative technologies include hands-free access and start, touch-screen GPS, reversing camera, fully heated windscreen and air ioniser.

The Citroën C4 L is fitted with the latest generation petrol engines – the THP 150 & 170 (according to country), developed in partnership with the BMW Group, and the VTi 135. All three engines can be mated to a new automatic and sequential 6-speed gearbox.

The Citroën C4 L will be manufactured in each of the zones where it will be sold; Wuhan, China by the end of 2012 and Kaluga, Russia in the first half of 2013.
