Well, the French confirm the world title of bold experimenters. Here Renault turns the Scenic into a hydrogen concept, Peugeot is creating a cross hatchback 408, and Citroen is experimenting with sedans.
After all, the new model Citroen C4 X is nothing more than a sedan: an elongated 4.6-meter body (against 4.36 m in the usual hatchback Citroen C4), original rear, separate trunk lid. At the same time it is a sedan with a hint of a crossover: protective plastic pads, large wheels, and considerable ground clearance of 156 mm.
Of course, the rear extension had a purpose. The trunk has been increased to 510 liters, and the backs of the rear sofa are installed at a different angle, which should provide more comfortable boarding. And in general, a lot of attention is paid to comfort: for example, a suspension with special soft shock absorbers is used, and the seats received an additional layer of coverage.
At first glance, it seems that this is all a change in the interior. However, pay attention to the multimedia system: it is built on the basis of the already known 10-inch display but has received a new menu and features, such as air updates.
As for the power units, the new cross-sedan Citroen C4 X generally repeats the hatchback Citroen C4: petrol 1.2-liter turbocharged (100-130 hp) or 1.5-liter 4-cylinder turbodiesel (130 hp), mechanical gearbox or 8-speed automated gearbox, front-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive system is not provided by the construction and installation platform.
However, this platform provides for the creation of an electric version, which will receive its own name Citroen e-C4 X: an electric motor with a capacity of 100 kW (136 hp) and a battery of 50 kWh. However, it seems that the improved aerodynamics of the sedan has done their job. The new electric car Citroen e-C4 X can overcome on a single battery charge up to 360 km, which is almost a record result among other cars of the company.
Well, did the car turn out interesting? What do you think prevails in the new car Citroen C4 X – a crossover or a sedan?
