Suddenly, the fashion for fastbacks began in the global auto industry (these are sedans with a sloping rear, reminiscent of hatchbacks, but there is no lifting fifth door). This week, Hyundai introduced the Ioniq 6 electric car in such a body , and Volkswagen showed a similar ID. Aero . So Citroen also created a four-door with a dropdown roof, but at the same time endowed it with an off-road image. In terms of class and form, the novelty from Citroen is closer to Renault Arkana.
A black plastic body kit and muscular lines make this model look like a real crossover, but off-road ambitions are only a semblance here. The ground clearance is only 156 mm, and all-wheel drive is not provided.
The novelty is based on the same CMP (EMP1) platform as the new generation Citroen C4 hatchback , which was supposed to enter the Russian market in 2022. And the Peugeot 408 has an EMP2 platform, like the older Citroen C5 .
Dimensions Citroen C4 X - 4600 x 1800 x 1525 mm, wheelbase - 2670 mm.
Sedans are usually considered less practical than hatchbacks, but here the trunk volume is much larger than that of the related five-door C4 - 510 versus 380 liters. Affects a longer rear overhang.
The interior is designed in the same way as the hatchback, except that the MyCitroen Drive Plus multimedia system appeared here, which had previously been installed only on the older C5 X cross-liftback.
Another difference from the five-door is that the back of the rear sofa has a greater slope.
The range of engines includes 1.2 petrol turbo engines with a capacity of 102 and 131 hp, as well as a 1.5 turbodiesel producing 131 hp. An alternative to them is an electric power plant that develops 136 hp.
It is worth noting that versions with traditional engines are intended for Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and only an electric car will be sold in Western Europe. This modification is called e-C4 X.
She has a traction battery with a capacity of 50 kWh. The charge is enough for 360 km of the WLTP cycle.
Production of the Citroen C4 X will begin in the fall at a plant in Spain.
