Citroen released the very first pictures and details of the all-new 2011 Citroen C4 ahead of its public debut at this year’s Paris Motor Show. The first thing you notice looking at the new C4 is that it’s no where near as crazy as the old gen. The designers have tried to make the new model more conservative and restrained, just like the new generation Ford Focus.

Some might like Citroen’s new approach and some might hate it, but if you are a fan of current C4’s styling, we have more bad news for you! They have also revamped the cabin and removed all those fancy toys you used to get in the old car. The steering wheel for instance is a normal wheel and its middle part is not stationary when you turn it, damn!

Of course it is still far from boring and you get the same feel of funkiness you get in all Citroens, the gear lever for example has a new placement which is kinda cool. But after all, that characteristic craziness was part of Citroen’s charm, and now it’s gone.

There used to be a time when Citroen’s were famous for poor quality and flimsy trims! That’s no longer the case. They say the new models are made with a high level of quality that it gives you a sense of well-being every time you get in it! The new C4 is bigger and more spacious as well, 4.33m long, 1.79m wide and 1.49m high, which makes it  2cm wider and 3cm taller than the current model. It also offers 408 liter luggage space in the boot.

2011 Citroen C4 will get a range of optimized petrol and diesel engines, and a new micro-hybrid e-HDi which comes standard with Stop & Start system and Michelin Energy Saver tyres to be able to deliver CO2 emissions as low as 109g/km at launch – and 99g/km on future models.

The new car will also get high-tech stuff such as EGS (Electronic Gearbox System), hill start assist, automatic electric parking brake, Lane Departure Warning System and Xenon dual-function directional headlamps, as well as a new blind-spot monitoring system, a cornering light function, cruise control and speed-limiter with road speed memory settings, and an innovative new service called eTouch.
