Citroen C4 exterior dimensions
The Citroen C4 is a similar size to its closest rivals – such as the VW Golf and Renault Megane – meaning that it boasts a decent amount of interior space and should be reasonable easy to park in towns.
Citroen C4 interior dimensions
The Citroen C4’s interior is spacious enough to be able to easily carry four people on long journeys. Fill the rear seats, however, and your passengers will need regular breaks to stretch their legs – the back isn’t quite as commodious as its VW Golf and Ford Focus rivals.
Shoulder room is adequate but the swooping roofline cuts noticeably into the available headroom. Up front, however, things are noticeably more spacious and comfortable – the C4 is certainly on par with its closest competitors.
Citroen C4 boot space and fuel tank capacity
The C4 has a decent sized boot that’s certainly large enough for the weekly shop or the occasional trip to Ikea. Its 380-litre capacity is the same as the VW Golf but it offers more useful storage in an underfloor compartment. The fuel tank is similar to other cars in the hatchback sector and should, if you choose the 78mpg-capable diesel model, allow the C4 to travel as far as 1,030 miles between fill-ups.
|Boot size||380 litres|
|Boot size with underfloor compartment||408 litres|
|Fuel tank||60 litres|
Citroen C4 turning circle
The C4’s turning circle is fairly average in the family hatchback class but this Citroen can switch ends in a tighter gap the than the Ford Focus – this should help make it slightly easier to park.
|Turning circle||10.7 metres|
Citroen C4 weight
The C4’s weight varies depending on the engine and gearbox combination you choose. The lightest model – a 1.2-litre petrol – tips the scales at just 1,200kg while the heaviest 2.0-litre diesel with a six-speed manual comes in at a more portly 1,360kg.
