2011 Citroen C4 gets a five star rating at Euro NCAP crash tests

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

Citroen's new 2011 C4 received a five star rating, with a score of 97% in the "Safety assist" category, from the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP). Citroen has plenty of reasons to rejoice as this is the highest score for any vehicle of its type. The model will be showcased at the Paris Auto Show this October and will be launched in early 2011. It can be recalled that the new Citroen C4's predecessor has 5-star Euro NCAP credentials and was considered one of the safest vehicles in its class.

The new C4 features safety-enhancing technology, including ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution), EBA (Emergency Braking Assistance) and ESP (Electronic Stability Programme). Furthermore, occupants are protected by six airbags across the range (driver, front passenger, front lateral and curtain).

The new C4 is equipped with innovative new safety features, including a new blind-spot monitoring system that warns drivers of the presence of vehicles in the car's blind spots. This new model is also equipped with a cornering light function for improved visibility in bends, cruise control and speed-limiter with five programmable road speed memory settings and the new Citroen eTouch Assistance System, which provides on-board functionality to respond quickly to incidents. 

The engines that will power the new C4 have not been revealed yet but they are previewed as being micro-hybrid e-HDi powertrains. This model is expected to come with Stop & Start systems that decrease CO2 emission levels to 109 g/km at launch and 99 g/km later on.
