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 well suited to 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

Citroen revamped the e-C4's trim levels in early 2022, with the range now made up of Sense, Shine Edition and Shine Plus variants and starting from just under £29,500 after the government grant has been applied. In April 2022, a new 'C-Series Edition' version joined the line-up.

Standard equipment on the entry-level Sense comprises LED headlights, 18-inch alloys, power-folding mirrors, rear parking sensors and keyless entry, along with active safety technology. Interior and comfort features include a 10-inch touchscreen with smartphone connectivity, a tablet mount for the front-seat passenger, Citroen's 'Advanced Comfort' suspension and seats, plus climate control.

Stepping up to Shine Edition adds a head-up display, active cruise control, active blind-spot monitoring and a 'Safety Plus Pack'. Sat nav, front and rear parking sensors, a colour reversing camera, a heated steering wheel and a two-position boot floor also feature. Shine Plus comes with wireless smartphone charging, an upgraded audio system with a subwoofer and heated front seats that can be finished in either leather or leather-effect textile.

The C-Series Edition adds a bronze colour pack, 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, dark-tinted rear windows and body-coloured bumpers and doorhandles. Inside, there's a heated leather steering wheel and heated front seats.

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.
