Citroen is keen for the e-C4 to be a viable family-car option, so particular attention has been paid to its interior and to practicality. Its design isn't entirely practicality-first, however – rear headroom isn't perfect and the car's spoiler ruins rearward visibility. Overall though, the e-C4 is a practical family car.

Citroen e-C4 interior space, storage & comfort

There's plenty of space in the e-C4 for a family; the back seats are spacious enough, even if the sloping roofline cuts into headroom for taller occupants. Legroom is ample both in the front and back.

Citroen is known for filling its cabins with plenty of storage and the e-C4 carries on the tradition, with a large central cubby, large doorbins, cupholders beneath a roller-hatch and a large central armrest compartment. 

Boot space

The e-C4's 380-litre boot is the same size as you'll find in petrol-powered C4 models, and just five litres down on that of the Volkswagen ID.3. It's practically designed with a boot floor that lines up perfectly when the rear seats are folded – perfect for loading and unloading larger items.

The e-C4 rides higher than some of its competitors, however, so it'll take a bit more effort to get heavier items in. A dedicated storage area is provided under the boot floor for cable storage, which is a nice touch that's sometimes overlooked on cars of this type.
