Externally, the 2015 Citroen C4 is distinguished by its redesigned head- and tail-light innards. The latest headlight treatment features U-shaped surrounds for the high- and main-beam units, as well as LED driving lights. At the back, the tail-lights now sport a 3D effect and repositioned clusters.

The only other exterior changes involve two new colour options (stone grey and platinum grey), as well as fresh designs for the 17-inch alloy wheels.

On the inside, the major change is availability of a new seven-inch touchscreen that, Citroen claims, simplifies user interaction with the entertainment system and also features a new satellite navigation interface.


Under the bonnet, two new turbocharged three-cylinder petrol drivetrains are now available: the manual-only 81kW/205Nm PureTech 110, and the 96kW/230Nm PureTech 130 with a Aisin six-speed automatic and automatic engine start/stop. In overseas markets, the C4 is already offered with the PureTech 130, but only with a six-speed manual.

New to the C4 lineup is Citroen's BlueHDi range of 1.6-litre turbo-diesel motors, which are available in both 73kW/254Nm BlueHDi 100 and 88kW/300Nm BlueHDi 120 trim. Both versions are fitted with a manual transmission; automatic engine start/stop is optional on the low power iteration and standard on the more powerful version.


We're awaiting word from Citroen Australia as to when the updated C4 will arrive in local showrooms.
