New Car: 2009 Citroen C4 facelift

After clocking up 900,000 sales world-wide (with over 200,000 units going to the UK) since 2004, the french brand will look to maintain its success with a new facelifted model with a touched up exterior and interior styling along with two new engines.

The exterior styling sees a more curvier look to it with a completely restyled front end to mimic the design of the recently launched C5. Some additional chrome accents, new body colours and new alloy wheels help complete the look.

The interior hasn't gone unnoticed by the Citroen designers, where it gets small updates to the upholstery with a new velour or leather options available and the rev-counter has been repositioned to the center of the dashboard display. Citroen has used the new C4 facelift to introduce its new “MyWay” navigation system with a hi-res 7'' colour screen, other technological enhancements include Bluetooth® and USB connectivity as well as an audio system with a built-in 10GB hard drive.

Under the hood, Citroen replaces the 1.6i 16V and 2.0i 16V engines with two new engines co-developed with BMW. Both petrol engines have a displacement of 1.6-litres, the first is a normally aspirated 120bhp Vti with Variable valve lift and Timing Injection whilst the 150 THP (Turbo High Pressure) engine comes in at 150bhp.

The revised small family car will go on sale before the end of the year and prices will be receive a small hike over the current model, which means it should start around £10,000.
So will the C4 Triomphe receive the same treatment in 2009?
