New Citroen C4 awarded 5 star safety rating

The new Citroen C4 has been awarded the maximum five star safety rating by Euro NCAP

The new Citroen C4 has been awarded the maximum five star safety rating by Euro NCAP in including 97% in the 'safety assist' category, this is the highest score for any vehicle of its type.

Safety enhancing technology standard to the new Citroen C4 includes ABS with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution), EBA (Emergency Braking Assistance) and ESP (Electronic Stability Programme). In addition, occupants are cocooned in a safe and secure environment, with protection from six airbags across the range. Other new safety features include a new blind-spot monitoring system that alerts drivers to the presence of vehicles in the car’s blind spots, a cornering light function for improved visibility in bends, cruise control and speed-limiter with five programmable road speed memory settings and the new Citroën eTouch Assistance System, which offers on-board functionality for a swift response to incidents.

The new Citroen C4 is 5cm longer and 2cm wider and 3cm taller than the current model and its 408 litre standard boot will be the biggest in its class. The interior of the Citroen C4 uses strong and sturdy materials that wouldn’t look out of place in a prestige car.

Due to be launched in the UK early in 2011, the new Citroën C4 builds on the 5-star Euro NCAP credentials of its predecessor, which at launch, was also one of the safest vehicles in its class.
