Everyone wants a slice of the pie that's mostly eaten up by the likes of the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf. That includes Citroën, of course, which competes in the segment with the C4. Based on the same underpinnings as the Peugeot 308, the C4 was introduced back in 2004 to replace the Xsara and was replaced with an all-new model in 2010. But that was almost five years ago, so to keep pace with the competition, the Chevron marque has launched an updated version for 2015.

The changes to the new C4 are limited, but include new headlights with LED running lights, 3D-effect tail lamps and an interior with new upholstery and streamlined dashboard with seven-inch touchscreen display. The sound deadening has also been enhanced, there's a massaging front seat, a panoramic glass sunroof and a host of new technologies including hill-start assist, blind-spot monitoring and an intelligent traction control system. Power comes from a range of engines including a new three-cylinder option with 130 horsepower.

Launched in 2010, with over 450,000 vehicles produced at the Mulhouse plant in France, the second-generation CITROËN C4 is being updated in 2015 with a new light signature, more useful technologies and latest-generation engines. Setting the standard for comfort in its segment, it is cementing its status as a compact hatchback delivering a superb ride and driving experience. Its elegant design, all-around comfort, and outstanding driveability are proof of CITROËN's capacity to use creativity and technology to provide an overall sense of well-being.

The New CITROËN C4 Range features:

- a new light signature that makes the front end more expressive with LED running lights and adds a more dynamic touch to the rear end with 3D-effect tail lights. It also gains new upholstery materials and a simpler dashboard featuring a new centrally located 7" touchscreen tablet;

- comfort is as exceptional as ever owing to a performance that filters out the road with no trade-off in driving pleasure. Onboard comfort is increased with standard-setting acoustic features, comfortable seats, massaging front seat, and a panoramic glass roof equipped with an electric blind. The CITROËN C4 is also spacious thanks to its 2.61 m wheelbase, split foldback rear seats, and a boot volume of 408 litres, setting the standard in this segment;

- useful technologies, with the introduction of the hands-free Access and Start-up system, a new 7-inch touchscreen tablet grouping all the media and navigation functions. Also featured are technologies designed to simplify driving, such as Hill Start Assist, Intelligent Traction Control and the Blind Spot Monitoring system. Plus everything needed for a connected motoring experience with the CITROËN Connect Box (including the emergency call and assistance system, a virtual servicing manual and an Eco-Driving service, all accessible over the Internet*);

- latest-generation engines that enhance driveability and reduce fuel consumption. The 3-cylinder PureTech petrol engines and BlueHDi Diesels all meet Euro 6 standards. Combined with the Stop & Start technology and ultra low rolling resistance tyres, they deliver excellent fuel economy: 3.3 l/100 km and 86 g of CO2 for the BlueHDi 100 S&S manual unit and 4.8 l/100 km and 110 g of CO2 for the PureTech 130 S&S EAT6. The new EAT6 automatic gearbox contributes to this remarkable performance.

The New CITROËN C4 Range ships with a host of features for easy, worry-free driving.
