Citroen reveals more C4 details

Car-making giant Citroen has revealed more details of its latest C4 model, which is due to be unveiled in September at the Paris Motor Show.

The new model will be longer, wider and taller than the current model, and will feature bold styling reminiscent of its C5 vehicle.

The car manufacturer confirmed new technologies not previously available on the C4 will feature in the latest version, including an electronic gearbox system, hill start assist, and a blind-spot monitoring system.

The new model will also benefit from features such as cruise control, a speed-limiter function with road memory settings, and a lane departure warning system.

The company added that at 408-litres, the boot of the car will be the biggest in its class.

Citroen has also announced that the C4 will be available with a new system called eTouch, which enables drivers to monitor their driving patterns and fuel consumption while receiving advice on how to improve their fuel economy.

Diesel engines combined with stop-start technology will see emissions as low as 109g/km for the introduction models, falling to 99g/km on future models.

The new C4 is expected to reach the UK early in 2011.
