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.
