CitroŽn C4 Hatchback 1.2 PureTech Review
A Certain Kind of Plush

17 Nov 2016

Introduction & Exterior

Compared to the first generation car, there are lesser curves

The Citroen C4 1.2 is the French manufacturer’s answer to Volkswagen’s entry level 1.2TSI Golf.

We were very curious about what the quirky French have been up to on their drawing boards, and decided to take one out for a try.


Compared to the first generation car, there are lesser curves, as the car adopted more conventional lines. Perhaps, customers did not know how to appreciate the curved roofline that flowed down to the hunch-y hatch.

What we got were more angular sculpting along the fenders and doors, large headlamp lenses which housed sculpted light clusters, and on the lower, outermost edge of the lenses, sat the daytime running lights. Below the headlamps, a set of fogs on the lower half of the bumper, which double as turning lamps. In all, this C4 adopts a more business-like aggressive look, compared to its more playful bulbous looking predecessor. The chromed grille features Citroen’s newly tweaked twin chevron logo incorporated into the two chrome bars, and cuts into the bonnet, providing a bit of a snarl to the face of the car.

Rear treatment too, for the C4 features two-piece tail lamps, which eat into the boot lid. Rear glass covers any framing of the lid, and is completed with a black subtle rear wing, which houses the third brake light.

From the outside, there isn’t anything entry level looking about the car., with chrome accents, and stylish piano black door handles.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
