In the e-C4's cabin, quality is very good and a distinct step up from Citroens of old; standard digital dials and large touchscreen give a high-tech feel, while clever practical touches like hidden storage ahead of the gear lever and a tablet holder on the passenger side make it adept at dealing with family life.

Citroen e-C4 dashboard

The dashboard has a wide, flat design and is centred around the similarly wide infotainment screen in the middle, with large central air vents below. A digital instrument cluster features behind the steering wheel. Overall quality is good, though perhaps not quite up there with the likes of the Volkswagen ID.3

Equipment, options & accessories

There are three trim levels: Sense, Shine and Shine Plus. Sense brings LED headlights, 18-inch alloys, a head-up display and dual-zone climate control, as well as a 10-inch infotainment system with sat nav and a reversing camera – a feature you may find particularly handy due to the poorly designed split rear window.

The e-C4 Shine costs almost £1,000 more and gets dark tinted rear windows, extra safety kit, plus keyless entry and start, automatic high beams, front and rear parking sensors and a heated steering wheel. Top-of-the-range Shine Plus is priced at £31,330 and features a premium sound system, black leather, a power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, four USB sockets and a wireless smartphone charging pad.

Infotainment, apps & sat nav

The infotainment system in the e-C4 comprises a 10-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus a 5.5-inch digital dashboard with a head-up display. The system is logically laid out, responsive to the touch and – crucially – the heater and ventilation controls aren't in a sub-menu. Dedicated physical ventilation controls sit below the screen on the centre console and are therefore easily adjusted on the move without undue distraction.
