Citroën C4 Shine – Citroën has always been a brand that pushes both design and innovation boundaries over the years. The latest C4 is no exception with its Sportback crossover SUV styling that is actually quite appealing.
The C4 comes in one well equipped variant priced from $37,990 plus the usual costs. And is very competitive against other premium brand vehicles.

The C4 is powered by a 1.2L PureTech Petrol engine: producing 114kW of power and 240Nm of torque, paired with an 8-speed Efficient Automatic Transmission. It is quite zippy around town and enough oomph for the freeways with a raspy note under acceleration.
Complementing the engine is a smooth hydraulic suspension that simply glide along on the freeway and around town it does its best to soak up road bumps and more.
Inside the C4 Shine has a premium ambience with quilted leather heated front seats, massage function and electric adjustments? The driver instrument layout is different but functional as is the head up HUD. Central screen is crisp and intuitive to use but interestingly to connect Apple Car Play you need the latest USB-C connection.
If you are looking for something just a little different from the usual BMW, Lexus and MB blandness then perhaps the C4 is for you
