Lower Emissions for Revised CitroSeptember 15, 2008
Citroën has refreshed the look of its C4 range, and at the same time has lowered its emissions. There are two new low CO2, fuel efficient, petrol engines co-developed with BMW, and HDi models will also be available with new low-rolling resistance Michelin tyres for improved fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
The two new petrol engines that have been co-developed with BMW – the 1.6 16v VTi 120hp and the 1.6 16v THP 150hp – offer a blend of performance and fuel economy, with significantly lower consumption and CO2 emissions.
The VTi 120hp petrol engine, with a manual or automatic gearbox, replaces the 1.6i 16V 110hp unit, offers fuel efficiency of 42.2mpg and CO2 emissions of 159g/km on the combined cycle (down 6% on the former unit).
The new THP 150hp (Turbo High Pressure) engine, with its six-speed manual gearbox, has fuel consumption of 40.9mpg on the combined cycle with CO2 emissions of 164g/km.
The C4’s diesel engine range has also been improved. The 2.0HDi unit with six-speed manual gearbox and particulate filter fitted as standard, has fuel economy of 53.3mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions of just 140g/km.
The other diesel powered models – the 1.6HDi 92hp and 1.6HDi 16V 110hp DPFS EGS – have switched to low rolling resistance Michelin Energy SaverŽ tyres, available on 16-inch wheels, which reduce the fuel consumption and lower the CO2 emissions. The 1.6HDi 16V 92hp emits just 117g/km CO2, 64.2mpg combined, and 76.3mpg on the extra urban cycle.
