Updated 2021 Citroen C4 SpaceTourer on sale now from £28,630
Citroen has removed some complexity from the C4 SpaceTourer’s range, dropping its least popular trim-levels and engines from sale
After consulting its customer order books, Citroen has launched a revised version of the C4 SpaceTourer which drops the least popular trims and engines from the line-up. The revised MPV will be available to order in October, priced from £28,630.
Now, buyers have a choice of just two specifications, called Sense and Shine. The old car’s entry-level Live trim has been discontinued, after Citroen found that more than 90 percent of C4 SpaceTourer buyers opted for the two more expensive trims.
Standard equipment for the Sense model includes 17-inch alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, aluminium roof bars and a reversing camera. Inside, there’s a 12-inch digital gauge cluster mounted atop the dashboard and a seven-inch infotainment system, pre-loaded with a three-year subscription to Citroen’s connected navigation system with live traffic updates.
There’s also a host of standard safety equipment, such as active safety braking, a driver attention alert system, traffic sign recognition and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
Above the Sense specification, there’s the flagship C4 SpaceTourer Shine. Prices start from £30,880 and, despite the added expense, it’s currently the best-selling model in the MPV’s line-up, contributing around 60 percent of the model’s total sales.
It comes as standard with a panoramic sunroof, black door mirrors and Citroen’s Xenon Intelligent Beam headlamps, which automatically dip the beam to avoid dazzling oncoming road users. There’s a little more driver assistance gear, too, including active cruise control, a blind-spot monitoring system and park assist.
Buyers have a choice of just two engines. The cheapest option is a turbocharged 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol unit, with 128bhp and 230Nm of torque. It’s mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, although buyers can have an eight-speed automatic for an extra £1,610.
Above that, there’s a turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel unit which develops 128bhp and 300Nm of torque. Unlike the petrol, though, the engine is only available with a six-speed manual gearbox on the entry-level Sense specification, with Citroen dropping the automatic from the model due to lack of customer demand.
Prices for the diesel start from £30,275 in Sense specification, climbing to £32,525 in Shine trim. The eight-speed automatic adds an extra £1,600 to the Shine model’s starting price.
